Harry’s pal made ‘hurtful’ comment about Meghan immediately after wedding
Harry and Meghan speak on mental health
Prince Harry’s old pal made a cutting remark about Meghan Markle the morning after the former took the latter down the aisle, it has been revealed.
It’s been more than five years since Harry and Meghan tied the knot in a star-studded event that sought to put a more diverse, modern face on the monarchy.
Joining the couple were a phalanx of celebrities, many of whom shared their wish to change the world.
Oprah Winfrey, Idris Elba, Elton John, George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, James Corden and David and Victoria Beckham all watched from rows of seats in the Gothic masterpiece that is St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
Notably absent from the guestlist was one of Harry’s oldest school friends, Tom Inskip, affectionately known as Skippy.

In their book Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand revealed how Skippy took his lack of invitation personally.
The aggrieved friend decided to take a swipe at Harry’s new wife Meghan over brunch the following day.
“Notably absent were Skippy, Harry’s old friend, who had questioned the prince’s relationship with Meghan, and his wife, Lara,” they wrote.
“They were invited to the wedding ceremony and lunchtime reception but didn’t make the cut for the evening bash. At brunch the day after the wedding, Skippy told friends ‘Meghan has changed Harry too much’. His Eton friend said the prince was awed by the likes of the Clooneys and Oprah. ‘We’ve lost him’, Skippy concluded.”

According to the book, “Many of Harry’s old friends said that the evening guest list was the prince and his bride’s way of saying ‘these are the people we want in our lives moving forward'”.
Earlier in the book, the authors claimed Harry and Skippy’s friendship came under strain after the latter suggested his friend was moving too quickly with Meghan.
They claimed Skippy advised Harry to try living with Meghan for a bit before “before doing anything more serious”.
A source close to Harry and Meghan told the book’s authors that his advice “came from a good place” but Harry “didn’t totally see it that way”.
The insider added: “It really hurt him [Harry] that someone he was so close to would not trust his judgement.”
Harry and Tom have been friends since their days at Eton.
Skippy was even branded Harry’s “wingman” by the press in their youth as he would frequent nightclubs and go on holidays with the Duke.
Indeed the Telegraph reported it was Tom who organised a party in Las Vegas in 2012, at which the Prince is said to have played billiards naked with showgirls in a hotel suite.
