Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were bombarded with ‘disturbingly violent' threats during their UK visit for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, a royal expert claims.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s unofficial biographer, Omid Scobie, says the couple faced vile warnings of dismemberment, car accidents and rape which were all forwarded to the police.

Citing the terrifying and torrid abuse from June, Omid has called on the UK Government to stump up the security they need when in Britain, Express.co.uk reports.

Even Omid has come under fire from similar death threats as a result of being so close with Meghan, he revealed with the issue is “no different today”.

Writing an op-ed for Yahoo news, Mr Scobie said: “Sources tell me that during the Sussex family’s visit for the Platinum Jubilee (which they were given state security for as it was an official royal event), a number of credible threats were intercepted by authorities.

“I witness a lot myself, too. Thanks to a never-ending stream of false tabloid tales calling me the couple’s ‘close friend’ or ‘spokesman’, I regularly receive an extension of their online threats.

“The messages range from extreme racism to disturbingly violent scenes involving the likes of dismemberment, car accidents and rape.

“They always get forwarded to the police.”

Mr Scobie’s comments come after Meghan and Harry won the right to challenge security decisions which would have left the couple without the “same degree” of protection as they had while working as full-time working members of the Royal Family whenever the couple visit the UK.

Should Prince Harry win the appeal, it would allow the future King’s son to pay for police protection for himself and his family while visiting from the US.

Meghan and Harry departed for the States less than two years after their 2018 wedding, where they have now carved out a new life with their two children, Archie, three, and Lilibet, one.

The Duke and Duchess’s current security detail, which according to Forbes could cost as much as £2.45million a year, covers not just the cost of physical guards but also cyber-security, personnel to scout locations prior to their arrival should they choose to travel, vehicles and potential decoys to throw off the paparazzi.

However, their high-tech fortress in Montecito may in the coming years have served its purpose.

One of Diana’s former police protection officers who worked with Harry and William when they were boys, has predicted Harry could leave California to re-join the Firm when his father ascends to the throne.
