The book claims that Meghan “watched” while helping Prince Harry “drop the name” to secure the reservation.

Sky News host Rita Panahi says a new book claims that the very “aloof” Meghan Markle watched as an aide asked for a private area for the Duchess of Sussex in a posh restaurant.

“The current host of the Duchess of Sussex then named Prince Harry by saying she needed a table, a private table because it’s for someone who is dating a prince,” Ms. Panahi said.

“But apparently the maître was not impressed and didn’t help.”

Ms. Panahi discussed the matter with author Douglas Murray.

“It’s an absolute rule that you can stick to that people who pretend to be absolutely the sweetest in the life of public celebrities are behind-the-scenes nightmares,” she said.
