Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's relationship has been troublesome for the royal family long before they began airing out their dirty laundry with the Duke of Sussex's relatives.

In fact, Harry's father, King Charles III, was in such opposition of their love that he and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, tried banning the red-headed prince from proposing to his now-wife in 2016, a source spilled.

Harry had apparently been secretly dating the American actress for a while before Charles and Camilla caught wind of their blossoming romance, but they immediately put their foot down once they learned of what was going on.

According to the source, both His Majesty and Camilla believed Meghan wasn't "worthy of their family," with the former apparently threatening to cut Harry's generous allowance off if he didn’t ditch the Suits alum.

Another insider dished, "Snooty Camilla doesn’t want another commoner — like William’s wife Kate — tainting the royal blood and trying to change the monarchy," referring to the heir, Prince William, and his wife, Kate Middleton, who wed in April 2011.

“Camilla [likens] Meghan to her brother-in-law Prince Andrew's ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson," they continued. "She triggered public scandals by getting photographed having her toes sucked by a lover — and trying to sell access to the royal family."

However, Harry — obviously — refused to listen to Charles' wishes, going on to marry the brunette beauty on May 19, 2018, in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Harry and Meghan recounted their courtship in their Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan, recalling how the Duchess of Sussex immediately became the royal family's scapegoat when unfavorable stories about their own would be plastered in the press.

"They would feed stories on her, whether they were true or not, to avoid other less favorable stories being printed," a friend of Meghan's spilled in their Netflix series, with the mother-of-two adding: "You would just see it play out. A story about someone in the family would pop for a minute, and they'd go, 'We gotta make that go away.'"

And while Charles may not be the biggest fan of Meghan's, or the couple's for that matter, he is apparently doing nothing to further the divide between them and the family.
