“It’s my opinion that Harry feels he couldn’t protect his mother, so he’s going all out to protect his wife. This is his way of atoning,” a source told The Sun.
“He will brook absolutely no criticism of Meghan — and he is so sensitive he often sees criticism or negativity where there isn’t any.”
“William told his brother they knew nothing about her background, her intentions, what she was really like,” a source said.
“He just wanted to stress that becoming part of the Royal Family is a massive undertaking and the pressure and scrutiny is unrelenting. Was Meghan the right one?”
But the discussion didn’t go down well with Harry.
“Harry went mental,” the source said.
“He accused his brother of trying to finish his romance before it had begun. The brothers’ relationship has not really recovered.”
The Sun also revealed that other members of the family also discussed their concerns with Harry.
“A lot of people in the family objected. Who really knows what the concerns were? Was it Meghan’s background? Her father and dreadful half-sister? Because she was an outspoken American? Divorced?” another source revealed.
“Harry stood up for Meghan very forcibly. He really loves her.”
The publication also revealed that Meghan wanted Kate to show her the ropes but the Duchess was suffering from severe morning sickness with Prince Louis and was unable to help.
“Meghan hoped Kate would show her the ropes. But, equally understandably, Kate was busy. She didn’t have as much time for her as Meghan would have liked. They were at very different places in their lives,” a source added.
“Meghan felt quite let down. She had really tried but felt rebuffed, and so just stopped trying.”
