Prince Harry pal ‘punished’ over Meghan Markle romantic doubts, says book

Prince Harry’s best friend of his youth warned him to run into a relationship with Meghan Markle – and was “punished” with a mustache during the royal wedding, according to a new biography.

Tom “Skippy” Inskip – who was much of his roughest escape when Harry was his right-hand man – advised his royal BFF to live with the “Suits” actress before he “did something more serious,” according to The Telegraph, and quoted the controversial bio will be released on Tuesday.

Although the advice “came from a good place,” Harry “did not see it quite so,” a source is quoted in the book, “Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family.”

‘It really hurts [Harry] that someone he was so close to would not trust his judgment, ‘said the source, who is understood to have spoken to the biographers with the permission of Harry and Meghan, told The Telegraph.

Inskip and his wife, Lara Hughes-Young, were then “punished” for speaking – and excluded from the royal couple’s wedding party at Frogmore House in May 2018, the report said.

The feud lasted until last year, when they posted things after the death of Skippy’s mother-in-law, according to the book.

Harry’s brother, Prince William, and his wife, Catherine, also expressed similar concerns – long saying the spark was for the persistent feud that eventually led to Megxit.

Skippy had been a close friend of Harry’s since they met in Eton, and he was one of those with him on the infamous Las Vegas night in 2012, where he was caught playing naked billiards with showgirls in a hotel suite.

Skippy’s wedding in Jamaica in 2017 was one of Meghan’s first appearances with the prince.

A spokesman for the duke and duke told The Post earlier that the couple “had not been interviewed and did not contribute” to the book.

Buckingham Palace told The Telegraph they would not comment on the book’s content or claims made by unnamed sources.
