Prince William warned Prince Harry not to propose to Meghan Markle: memoir

Prince Harry claims Prince William warned him not to propose to Meghan Markle out of fear the couple’s relationship was moving “too fast.”
Yet as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex got more serious, Harry told William he felt like their late mother, Diana, helped him “find” the “Suits” actress — which didn’t sit right with the Prince of Wales.
After making the bold claim, a “concerned” William “took a step back” and told his younger brother he was “taking things a bit too far.”
However, the wedding planning process only drove a wedge further between the brothers.
When it came to choosing a venue, William shot down the idea of Harry and Markle getting married at Westminster Abbey, where he and Middleton had tied the knot seven years prior.
He also didn’t want the pair to choose St. Pauls — where Princess Diana and King Charles wed in 1981 — because it was apparently “too grand” for their nuptials.
While the wedding caused tension between the brothers, Middleton and Markle’s relationship also took a turn for the worse around the same time.
According to Harry, the Princess of Wales texted Markle just days before their wedding about a “problem” with the fit of her daughter’s frock.
Middleton told the actress that Charlotte, now 7, “burst into tears” when she tried on the dress because it was “too big, long and baggy” and it needed to be completely redone.
After Middleton finally agreed to bring the youngster to the palace to get alterations, the two women got into a heated argument which left Markle in tears “on the floor.”
