“I think Meghan thought she was going to be the Beyoncé of the UK. Being a part of the royal family would give her that standing,” the former palace insider told Low. “While she found out there were so many rules that were so ridiculous that she couldn’t even do the things that she could do as a private individual, which is tough.”

The source also told Low they believed the way the couple’s departure was handled was “incredibly incompetent.” Low added that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and other members of the royal family have struggled to compromise on the departure.

“Harry and Meghan felt cornered, misunderstood and deeply unhappy. If the rest of the institution didn’t recognize this, even if their demands were unreasonable, the exit negotiations would never end happily,” Low wrote.

The former Palace insider told Low: “The decision makers just had to sit around a table and say, ‘OK, what are we going to do about it? What do you need to feel better? And what can we give?”
