Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been accused of telling royal advisors "you can't stop us from doing what we want" in a battle royale with the palace a year before Megxit.
Sources have claimed the pair were the ones calling the shots after they revealed in their explosive interview with Oprah they didn't have a plan for when they gave up their roles as senior royals.
The couple will be stripped of their military titles and Royal patronages, which will be redistributed among working members of the Firm.
A source told the Telegraph: "There was a constant dialogue from the couple along the lines of: 'Why can’t we do this? You can’t stop us from doing what we want to do'.
"They were calling the shots and would be the ones instructing the press office on what line to put out."
The allegation comes after reports the couple tried to produce a series of videos for the streaming platform Quibi before the pandemic put the plans on hold.
Harry and Meghan also signed a $112million deal with Netflix and a £30million contract with Spotify.
During their interview with Oprah, Harry claimed he'd been "cut off" by the Royal Family when he and Meghan relinquished their roles as royals, effectively forcing him to sign the deals.
The claims come hot on the heels of reports that Princess Anne "objected strongly" to Prince Harry's relationship with Meghan Markle, calling her "unsuitable" and "wrong for the country", royal expert Lady Colin Campbell has claimed.
"Princess Anne was the champion in terms of 'don't marry that girl, she is unsuitable'," she said in the video.
"'She is wrong for us, she is wrong for the country, she is wrong for the job'. Well, it's turned out to be true."
Speaking to her 78,500 YouTube subscribers, Lady C said: "Princess Anne absolutely knew what Meghan was from the word go.
"She watched the developing relationship evidently – this is what I’ve been told, and I have absolute reason to believe that everything is accurate – with increasing horror."
The Daily Star has approached a spokesman for Meghan and Harry for comment.
