The first signs of a 'rift' between Meghan Markle and the Firm started to appear just four days after she wed Prince Harry, a royal author has claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wed on Saturday May 19 in 2018 in a star-studded ceremony held at Windsor Castle, making it their third wedding anniversary today.
But Meghan reportedly left royal circles "absolutely gobsmacked and astonished" with her behaviour at a 70th birthday party held for her new father-in-law Prince Charles just days later on Tuesday, May 22.
By Wednesday May 23, Meghan was the topic of conversation at Lady Colin Campbell's house, she claims.
Lady Colin Campbell, best known for her 1992 best-seller book, Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody and for being on ITV's I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, told the Daily Star warning signs emerged just four days after the lavish wedding.
Speaking about her book, Meghan and Harry: The Real Story, Lady C said the Royal Family put a "tremendous amount of hope" in Meghan "being a success".
She said she began writing the book as somebody who was "positive and invested in" Meghan being a success, but felt it was only important to tell the truth.
Lady C previously told the Daily Star: "I knew the tremendous amount of hope the Royal Family invested in Meghan being a success.
"Hundreds of millions of people of colour were rooting for Meghan, I was rooting for Meghan, being a Jamaican, I was emotionally invested in Meghan's success.
"Virtually everybody I know, including my Royal friends, the wider aristocracy, wanted Meghan to be a success.
"But it quickly became apparent the ride may not be as smooth as everybody had hoped it would be, and it would not be quite as positive as everybody had hoped it would be."
Lady C said the first "warning" something wasn't quite right was four days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wed at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018.

On May 22 the Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined the Royal Family in the grounds of Buckingham Palace where the Duchess of Cornwall and the Prince of Wales gathered for a party for Charles.
The garden party was thrown to celebrate the work of the Prince's Charities in the year of Prince Charles' milestone 70th birthday, and newlywed Prince Harry gave a speech.
Prince Charles' joyful occasion was marked, Lady Campbell claims, by Meghan who did something that "astonished" an attendee with "impeccable palace connections".
She told the Daily Star: "I can’t repeat it exactly, it’s in the book, but what I can say is, something happened at the very first garden party at Buckingham Palace to celebrate Prince Charles’ 70th birthday and all of his charity work.

"Something happened there on the Tuesday, and I was told about it on the Wednesday evening at dinner by a household name with impeccable palace connections.
"We were all absolutely gobsmacked and astonished, we all thought this doesn't bode well.
"It was not a good harbinger, we were all hoping against hope the information was wrong, but of course it was accurate".
In her book, Lady Colin writes that Harry and Meghan: “plunged in, glad-handing those who had been selected for introductions.
"She charmed everyone. Fifteen minutes into the event, she turned to Harry and said, ‘Harry, this is really boring. Let’s leave.’
"To his credit, he informed her that they would have to stay. ‘But Harry,’ she said, ‘this is so boring. We’ve done our bit. Everyone knows we’ve been here. Let’s go.’ Harry asserted that they had to stay, and they moved on."
