    Meghan Markle was forced to take SAS training – including a staged kidnap – earlier than planned after receiving “terrifying” and “stomach-churning” threats, Finding Freedom revealed.

    Meghan, 39, undertook the intense two-day security course – which all members of the Royal Family must take – much sooner than Duchess of Cambridge took hers.

    “There have been some absolutely terrifying and stomach churning threats made to Meghan since she started dating Harry,” one aide said.

    Meghan was bundled into the back of a car by a pretend-terrorist then rescued by officers firing fake guns, according to the book.

    She was taught how to develop a relationship with her captors and even drive a car “while in pursuit” during the training at SAS headquarters in Hereford.

    One user tweeted: “There is an organized effort to leave bad reviews for Finding Freedom on Amazon and to mark hateful reviews as “helpful” so they appear first.”

    Another added: “sussexsquad, the trolls are upvoting all the negative reviews on Amazon by rating them as helpful (some are rated helpful by at least 400 people).

    What's more, the book claims James' wife Julia – who is said to be friends with Meghan – recoiled to her husband's practical joke in “mock horror” while the joke left the newlyweds in hysterics.

    Remaining in character for the entirety of the joke, James reportedly said: “Your Royal Highnesses, ladies and gentlemen, I had no idea what to wear to a royal wedding, so I looked it up in the royal etiquette manual and found this outfit. I hope I've come in the right gear.”

    Despite her early rising, Meghan is likely to shun coffee as a kick-starter for her day, as she is believed to avoid caffeine.

    But Meg does have one morning pick-me-up in the form of her “wake up playlist.”

    Writing for her former lifestyle blog, The Tig, she says: “Turn these tracks on as you’re getting ready in the morning, when you need a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, or during your next evening celebration.

    The mum to Archie previously explained on her now-defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig, what attracted her to lost art in the first place.

    She wrote: “Then there’s Twitter and Instagram, the direct messages and comment boards — the constant carpel tunnel inducing typing, and hunching over a phone/a laptop/an “i”anything, so much so that life (that connection) is all done through a device.

    “I’m admittedly a Luddite (ironic considering I’m now the girl with a lifestyle website, I know), but if given the option between fingers to keyboard, or pen to paper, I will always choose the latter.

    “Because amongst the throwback things that I love (a ’62 porsche speedster à la Dylan McKay in 90210, a bevy of Vargas girls, a Busby Berkeley film, or cooking over a charcoal grill), what trumps all is my love of writing (and receiving) a handwritten note.”

    They added: “Meghan was the all-American girl before she met Harry, but since living in the UK she’s adopted certain phrases.

    “Her staff think it’s amusing to listen to an American celebrity using Britishisms. She’s often heard saying, ‘Oh dahling,’ to people at home.

  • HERE'S HOW TO MASTER MEGHAN'S SIGNATURE MESSY BUN

    The weather may have turned but summer isn't over yet, so if you want to sweep your locks off our face why not copy Meghan's signature messy bun.

    Hair guru Simon Hill, owner of Sesh hairdressing, advised: “The top tip to achieve Meghan’s signature messy bun is to create texture in your hair before tying into the bun. 

    “Notice how Meghan’s hair is always tousled softly round her face, this subtle wave will be created throughout her hair to create texture before it is tied into the bun. 

    “Tie your hair into a loose ponytail first and then wrap your hair around the hair tie to create the shape. 

    “Use your fingers to gently loosen strands to give that undone/messy look.”

  • MEGHAN AND HARRY'S LOVE IS 'STRONGER THAN EVER' SINCE QUITTING THE ROYAL FAMILY, BIOGRAPHER CLAIMS

    Meghan “gave Prince Harry the confidence to drive through Megxit” and they are now "stronger than ever", a royal author has claimed.

    Speaking to Ok! magazine, Omid Scobie – who co-authored the bombshell biography Finding Freedom – claimed Prince Harry was the driving force behind their decision to step down as senior working members of the Royal Family.

    “I think once Meghan is committed to something, there is no turning back,” Omid argued. “And if Harry had said, 'We’re sticking it out for another year,' then Meghan would have definitely ridden it out longer if he'd wanted to.”

    Although the royal expert claims Prince Harry “very much drove the decision”, he added: “I would say she gave him the confidence to see that decision through.”

  • MEGHAN AND HARRY BIOGRAPHERS HINT AT SEQUEL

    Co-author Omid Scobie, 39, claimed there were shocks which they did not include in the book because they could not fully stand up.

    The book also does not cover the couple's first few months of life in LA.

    Scobie said: “There are certain things we've just not felt strong enough in the reporting, that we haven't included in the book and it's possible that we may expand on those if there is an update at some point.”

  • QUEEN'S CLOSEST AIDE 'UPSET' ABOUT BEING DRAGGED INTO MEGHAN TIARA ROW

    Royal biographer Omid Scobie said Prince Harry became frustrated with The Queen's dresser Angela Kelly in the lead up to his 2018 wedding to Meghan – and the Duke even reportedly "yelled" at his grandmother.

    The trusted aide was reportedly unable to meet Meghan's demand to travel to Buckingham Palace to try on a tiara she wanted to wear on her big day.

    However, the Express claims Angela – who has worked at Buckingham Palace since 1994 – has been left “upset” after she was dragged into the row.

    An insider said: “The sad thing is that Angela is not allowed to give her side of the story.

    “There are all these rumours but the Angela I know is not someone who would do anything to upset any of the Royal Family.

    “I am sure she is really upset to be at the centre of what is being said.”
