Camilla 'warns' Meghan off marrying Harry

She may have won over Prince William and Kate Middleton but there’s one member of the royal family who reportedly isn’t a fan of Meghan Markle.

The 35-year-old Suits actress - who has been dating Prince Harry since November last year - is reported to have met with his step-mother, Camilla Parker Bowles, when she was in Toronto over the weekend.

However, instead of the warm and friendly encounter one might expect, reports suggest Camilla warned Meghan off marrying Harry.

According to New Idea, Camilla asked Meghan to meet her while her and Prince Charles were on a tour of Canada, to celebrate the 150th year celebrations there.

Although when she agreed, it’s said she had no idea what was in store for her and was caught “completely off guard” by Camilla’s “hostility”.

“She told Meghan that she didn’t like her relationship with Harry and that she should think twice before agreeing to his marriage proposal because Camilla was planning to make her life very tough,” a palace insider told the publication.

“She’s long thought Meghan isn’t good enough for Harry and told her that she’s not welcome in the royal family.”

Back in January it was reported that Camilla is doing everything she can to make sure Meghan never becomes Prince Harry’s wife.

According to a report in Woman’s Day, Camilla doesn’t like the fact Meghan has previously been married and is a celebrity in her own right.

"She doesn’t do tantrums, but she has considerable influence,” a source told the magazine.

“If she doesn’t get her way, she leans on Charles and Charles acts.”

Camilla hasn’t been afraid to let her feelings be known about her sons-in-law’s romances in the past and she was reportedly behind the reason why Prince William and Kate Middleton split way back in 2007.

At the time it was thought it was due to William’s unwillingness to commit to a relationship, however it’s been claimed that Charles’ second wife, Camilla, may have orchestrated the whole thing.

According to author Christopher Anderson - who wrote the book William and Kate: A Royal Love Story - Camilla was furious that Kate was “sucking up all the attention” at a time when she was trying to win over the public.

Anderson claims Camilla thought Kate wasn’t worthy enough to be welcomed into the royal family.

In his book, Game of Crowns, he wrote: “Kate is the first working-class woman to be accepted into the Royal Family.

“She is descended from coal miners and her mother was a flight attendant.

“So for all those reasons Camilla never really felt that Kate Middleton as an individual and the Middleton family as a whole were going to be worthy of entering into the Royal Family.

“I was told at the time of the breakup, and later on as well, that Camilla basically whispered in Charles’s ear that it was really time to make—to force—William to make a decision one way or the other.“
