The biographer of Prince Charles, Tom Bower, today called Meghan Markle “hateful” and accused her of “commercializing the royal family” without thinking about the queen.
The recent statement by the royal expert described the recent statement by her and Prince Harry as a “threat” that risked “destroying the 93-year-old sovereign of this beautiful country.”
He also said Meghan had “no status outside the royal family” in a furious Good Morning Britain debate about the use of her Sussex Royal brand name.
Mr. Bower, 73, said the Sussexes’ choice of words was “rude to the queen,” and Meghan, 38, wanted to “commercialize the royal family” without regard to the prince.
He appeared today alongside fellow journalist Afua Adom on Good Morning Britain, who struck back and said the duchess was “a successful actress before the royal wedding.”
It comes after Harry, 35, and his wife said that the monarch has “no jurisdiction” over the use of the term “royal” outside the UK, but they have agreed not to use it.
Mr. Bower told the program: “The statement was really hateful rage from Meghan, which Meghan wants Meghan to get.
“It was rude to the queen. What is hateful is that she married and saved in the royal family not so long ago. But she wants to save her terms.
“The most important thing for this country is to protect the reputation of the royal family.”
His debate rival Afua Adom said it was hateful of Mr. Bower to assume that the couple would continue to use “Sussex Royal,” even though they promised not to.
But Mr. Bower replied, “What you really have is that this couple is led by Meghan who wants to commercialize the royal family.”
Mrs. Adom asked how he possibly knew that Harry was “led by Meghan,” to which he replied, “It is the truth.
‘She has a whole life, a whole career of commercial exploitation of herself. She has absolutely no status except to be connected to the royal family. ”

Mrs. Adom and host Susanna Reid interrupted to point out that Meghan had a successful career as an actress in the Suits TV show before meeting Harry.
She was also involved in charity work and had her own blog.
But Mr. Bower insisted: “If she hadn’t married in the royal family, she couldn’t have set up a charity, she couldn’t sell Meghan’s shoes and everything else.”
Mrs. Adom lashed out at Mr. Bower and said again, “Before Meghan Markle married Harry, she was a successful actress in herself.
“She was known for doing a lot of charity work. It is completely unfair to say without Harry that she would have no status.
“And it is hateful for you to say that you continue to use it.”
Mr. Bower said they had agreed “reluctantly” not to use their Instagram savvy Sussex Royal branding.
Mr. Bower, 73, said the Sussexes’ word choice was “rude to the queen,” and Meghan, 38, wanted to “commercialize the royal family” without regard to the prince
He also claimed that Meghan’s acting career was “over” by the time she got involved with the prince.
He added, “They are trying to make money with the royal family.”
Put under pressure why media coverage was sometimes negative, he said: “Because of the hypocrisy. In the beginning she threw herself into it. She started campaigning for the environment and then took all these private jets.
“When she didn’t tell the truth about Archie’s birth, when she deliberately tried to confuse people about the time of birth.”
But Mrs. Adom replied: “When it comes to Harry and Meghan, there seems to be no way of seeing that it’s good for them.
“It’s not all about Meghan, it’s about Meghan and Harry and Archie and what’s best for them.”

But Mr. Bower said, “it is not about what is best for them,” but what is best for the queen.
He added: “If they do something to damage the 93-year-old sovereign of this beautiful country, they must start questioning themselves.
“It’s a selfish, victim-like approach to the world.”
Harry and Meghan announced on Friday evening that they will stop using their Sussex Royal brand when they step down as senior royals on March 31.
But hours after releasing a carefully worded statement through Buckingham Palace that confirmed the move, the couple posted an “update” of 1114 words on their personal website.
They claimed that the queen had no “jurisdiction” over the word “royal” abroad and said that the prince and the government would have been powerless to stop them if they had continued to use the word abroad.
