She’s a “merciless opportunist” — an “angry adventuress” who ensnared Prince Harry “within her web”. This “very scheming, very clever” woman manipulated her husband, his relatives, her family, Oprah Winfrey and the Archbishop of Canterbury. She is “determined” to deny the queen a “final happiness”, and sabotaged Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Caribbean tour with her “sermons” on the royal family’s racism, convincing an entire region apparently unable to think for itself to turn against Britain. Despite being a self-proclaimed “foodie”, her cooking skills are limited. And she may have even worn a padded bra on Deal or No Deal.

Such is biographer Tom Bower’s characterisation of Meghan Markle in his royal hatchet job, Revenge. Bower is known for his biographies skewering politicians and businessmen including Jeremy Corbyn, Robert Maxwell and Richard Branson. He has also written about Prince Charles, in 2018’s Rebel Prince, yet that study of a vain, petulant man who didn’t know what clingfilm was reads like a love sonnet in comparison with Revenge.
