Meghan and Harry latest news: Duchess was warned not to 'show off' and Princess Charlotte eased Kate Middleton tensions

MEGHAN MARKLE was reportedly told not to show off in her first Christmases with the Royal Family.

The American actress spent the festive period in 2017 and 2018 with the Queen and co at Sandringham.

But aides told the Daily Express: "They [the Royal Family] don't like show-offs, especially newcomers who show off.

"The Duchess had to resist that American urge to win at everything.

"The whole family likes to play charades on Christmas night and she must never beat the Queen, who is a fine actress herself."

Meanwhile, the tensions between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have been well documented.

But in the new book on the Sussexes, Finding Freedom, it has been revealed that Kate's daughter Princess Charlotte helped ease tensions between the pair.

Meghan and Harry used to live metres away from Prince William and his family at the Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.

And it was the American's "adoration" for the five-year-old Princess that came to the rescue when things were tense between her mother Kate and aunt Meghan, according the book's authors Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie.

  • HARRY & MEGHAN'S WEEK OF REVELATIONS

    It has been a week of revelations in the royal family as extracts from a new biography about Meghan and Harry were serialised in the Sunday Times.

    Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand spoke to over 100 sources for the book Finding Freedom which charts the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s departure from the royal family.

    The authors confirmed that rumours of a “rift” between the Cambridges and the Sussexes were somewhat true.

    Prince Harry was left “p***ed off” when Prince William warned him not to rush into his marriage with Meghan.

    Meanwhile growing tensions between Meghan and Kate were also reported in the book, with the Duchess of Cambridge believing “she didn’t have much in common with Meghan.”

    However, it was reportedly Princess Charlotte who helped to ease the frosty atmosphere.

    The authors of Finding Freedom claim that it was the five-year-old Princess who came to the rescue when times were 'tense' between her mum Kate and aunt Meghan.

    The Sussexes lived just metres away from the Cambridges at the Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace before relocating to Windsor and later the US.

    And Scobie and Durand say that it was Meghan's “adoration” of little Charlotte that helped to put the situation at ease.

    The extracts from the book as Meghan Markle faces a continued court battle in a bid to protect the anonymity of her pals who acted as sources for an explosive People magazine interview – who spoke to the US publication in February 2019 over the bullying she had endured.

    Elsewhere the Duke of Sussex, 35, who is worth around £30million and enjoys taking private jets, today called for more green travel – just as TUI announced plans to shut 166 high street shops sparking hundreds of job losses.

    Harry called for the coronavirus-ravaged travel industry to “be better.”
