What Kate Middleton thought of Meghan Markle

“At the very least the institution ignored Meghan when she was in pain.

“They wanted Meghan to just go with everything that was suggested and not create any additional work. It was a combination of her not conforming with how women marrying into the family are expected to behave and certain individuals just being lazy," the book reveals.
