Prince Harry’s former biographer Angela Levin said the move to oust Harry would be a crushing blow to the Duke of Sussex.

A royal expert has said that Invictus Games could decide to oust Prince Harry amid concerns that the sports event had become “too royal”.

Invictus could also be lining up Mike Tindall, a former rugby union player, to take over from Harry in a shock move.

Royal biographer Angela Levin made the bombshell remarks during an interview with GB News.

She suggested that Mr Tindall, who is married to Zara Tindall, the niece of King Charles, had already been drafted in as an ambassador of the games.

Prince Harry’s former biographer claimed that there had been mutiny at the charity, which allows wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women to compete at a multi-sport event.

Ms Levin revealed that many in the Invictus Games set-up had become disgruntled with Meghan Markle’s involvement.

She explained: “Mike Tindall has been made a patron of the Invictus Games. I wonder if that is a way to ease Harry out. He has been very nice about Harry.

“It has become too royal. Much too royal. Meghan makes the speeches and she actually led a march with some of the ex-military people who were either physically, emotionally or psychologically damaged during their fighting.

“They were very upset. She knows nothing about how to march and she looked like she was at a dress show. They don’t want that or to hear she is late because she had to give her children a milkshake for three days.

“She gave a speech about how to be strong and fight against things which I think was rather insulting. It has taken away from what is the idea, which is to allow these people to live another life. Harry was marvellous with these people and showing that life is worth living. Now it’s all about Meghan and Harry follows behind.”

The Duke of Sussex returns to the UK in just over a week for a ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games.

Harry will attend the thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral, London, on May 8, where he will give a reading.
