According the The Express, Meghan’s attention was said to have focused on keeping childhood friend Tom ‘Skippy’ Inskip away from Prince Harry - the pair met at Eton College in 1998.
A source close to the couple told The Sun: “But the real reason Tom was made no longer welcome by Meghan is that she had learned he had dared to question Harry over whether he really felt he was doing the right thing in marrying her.
“All the poor guy did, during a heart-to-heart with the prince, was to venture that Harry might be infatuated, more in lust than love, and maybe he might think about cooling things down before rushing into a proposal," said the source.
The birth of Archie Harrison is said to have eased the rift between the Duchess and Skippy, with royal insiders claiming he was the first person the Duke told about the birth of his son.
The royal source said: “One of the first of his old chums with whom Harry wanted to share the great news was Skippy, who is just happy to be back in the fold."
