The Telegraph today reported claims members of the palace PR team "body blocked" ex-advisor Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne from coming into contact with Meghan during a visit to the Social Bites cafe in Edinburgh.

Instead, Ms Nelthorpe-Cowne posted a photograph of her former friend on social media from yards away.

A former aide today told the paper: "Anyone from the past was a problem."

They added: "Meghan likes to move on".

When contacted by The Telegraph, Ms Nelthorpe-Cowne declined to comment on the incident.

However, she has previously spoken of her declining friendship with the duchess after she married Prince Harry.

Writing for the Mail on Sunday in 2020, Ms Nelthorpe-Cowne wrote: "When, recently, I found myself in the same room as her, she pretended not to notice – stage-managing it so that Harry spoke to me instead.

"Meghan has made a habit of 'moving on' to better things. And I doubt that will ever change."

She also claimed she had warned Meghan, 39, of what life would be like married to a Royal but said the future duchess replied "Save it" with a "steely manner".

Ms Nelthorpe-Cowne's name has also previously appeared in court documents – accusing Meghan's friend Jessica Mulroney of "putting pressure on her to withdraw or change statements" she made in an April 2018 interview with the Mail on Sunday.

The string of claims emerged this week as the couple get set to have their tell-all interview with Oprah aired tomorrow.

The Royal Family is braced for more bombshell claims in Monday's broadcast amid an escalating war of words. 

And aides said the Queen has not been given an advance copy of Harry and Meghan's chat with Oprah Winfrey – instead "everyone will watch at the same time".

The Duchess of Sussex has already accused Buckingham Palace of spreading lies about her, plunging the the family into its worst crisis in decades.

Senior Royals have reportedly urged for "calm amid the storm" ahead of the bombshell interview.

The chat, conducted by talk-show powerhouse Oprah Winfrey, will be aired on CBS in the US on Sunday night, and then in the UK on ITV on Monday.

This week, reports were published claiming that Meghan had "bullied" several former staff members at Kensington Palace. 

A source told The Times newspaper the Duchess of Sussex drove two personal assistants out of the household and undermined the confidence of a third.

The Queen launched a probe into the allegations of bullying, with the Palace releasing a statement saying they were "very concerned" at claims the Duchess bullied staff.   

The Sun Online had approached the palace and the Sussexes for comment.
