'I think everything she is doing, leaving the royal family and moving back to California is part of her plan and she has taken Harry along with her.'
The Jamaican-born British writer, who penned the 1992 best-selling biography, Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody Knows, has a new book out on Thursday about the Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 38, titled Meghan and Harry: The Real Story.
The author has given a number of interviews about the couple in recent weeks, including one with The Sunday Times in which she said Meghan has 'squandered' the 'most wonderful opportunity' by leaving the royal family.

She also claimed the signs Meghan would 'not adjust' well to life as a royal were apparent shortly after her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018. 
Lady Colin told how Meghan became the hot topic of conversation at a dinner held at her house at Castle Goring, Worthing in Sussex, following a garden party for Prince Charles' 70th birthday.
The socialite heard Meghan had apparently asked to leave after having her photo taken because she was 'bored'. 
'We were all horrified,' the author said. 'It was a warning sign Meghan was not going to adjust as well as she'd hoped.'
Speaking to Australian TV network Channel Nine on Friday in which she said Meghan was the 'driving force' behind the decision to leave the royal family. 
'If you listen to their engagement tape they both state she's been treated very well, she's been welcomed with open arms and they can't wait for her to become a working member of the royal family and she said she wanted to hit the ground running.
'It did not work out for Meghan the way she thought it would... Meghan did not make the adjustment she should have and could have, and she is the one in my opinion [who drove the departure].'

The coronavirus pandemic killed 833 French people in just 24 hours, making it the nation’s deadliest day since the global outbreak started in China and quickly spread to the rest of the world. Health Minister Olivier Véran warned Monday that despite the tragic figure, France has still not yet seen the worst of the virus, BBC News reported. “We have not reached the end of the ascent of this epidemic,” he said. “We must keep up our efforts as citizens by staying at home." The total number of cases, combining hospital and nursing home statistics, increased by 5,171 between Sunday and Monday to 98,010.

Measures to combat a COVID-19 outbreak inside a federal jail in Brooklyn are woefully inadequate, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez wrote in a letter Monday, detailing screwups she fears will make the lockup “a potential powder keg of coronavirus infection.” Soap is in short supply at the Metropolitan Detention Center on the Sunset Park waterfront, according to the letter Velazquez sent to the Bureau of Prisons Monday. Yet correctional officers and other staff are prohibited from bringing alcohol-based hand sanitizer or their own face masks to work. Staff are rotated in and out of four housing units in quarantine without adequate protective gear, Velazquez wrote. Correctional officers who go home with COVID-19 symptoms are routinely ordered to return to work “in a couple days,” according to the letter. Meanwhile, the jail holding 1,700 inmates is one of the busiest in the federal system, with 150 or 200 inmates coming or going from the facility per we…

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is making progress in his battle against coronavirus after a brutal week that included shivering so violently that he chipped a tooth. The newsman, brother of Gov. Cuomo, was on “day 11” Monday, marking the time since he first exhibited allergy-like symptoms, his wife, Cristina Cuomo, posted in an update on Instagram. “Many have asked how Chris is doing and what meds he’s taking. Here’s an update,” she said in a post that began with, “Every day is a gift.” “After one week of up and down symptoms — chills, body aches, total exhaustion, sleeplessness, and a fever that hit 103, he is on day 11 today, (day 1 being first day of allergy-like symptoms) — he seems slightly better, but still feels the…
