Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle's close friends made some shocking revelations about her life after getting married to Prince Harry previous year. The friend - one of five who spoke to PEOPLE on condition of anonymity - has visited the Californian at Nottingham Cottage, the home she shares with Prince Harry.

"Meg [Markle] has silently sat back and endured the lies and untruths", a former costar of the Duchess of Sussex shared with People magazine Wednesday.

Meghan reportedly told one nominee that Harry is going to be "the best dad", as he pointed to her bump and joked, "there's a big baby in there".

And they've not let Meghan's pregnancy slow them down at all in their royal duties, as they made a joint appearance just days ago in the English town of Bristol.

In a letter that she sent to her dad after the wedding, Meghan's friend said, the duchess wrote: "Dad, I'm so heartbroken". "It's small and she's made it cosy, but the perception of their lifestyle and the reality are two different things".

The court also heard that police had arrested McArthur in 2016 for assault after he attempted to strangle a man he had known. The statement of facts presented to the courts does not appear to include any details provided by McArthur himself.

They insisted that not only does she do her own make-up and styles herself, but also writes many of her - and Harry's - speeches.

Meghan - who is expecting her first child with the Duke of Sussex - wore a white blouse with a black pencil skirt, both by Givenchy, for the ceremony, which honored British servicemen and women.

Meg's so-called relationships with her father, Thomas Markle, and half-siblings.

And despite Meghan's dad's numerous claims that he has no way to reach his daughter, the longtime pal scoffed, "He knows how to get in touch with her".

It led to some mean-spirited mocking from Good Morning Britain's Piers Morgan, who said Meghan was "putting on a performance" and accused her of making the charity work "all about her". That's how she plays with them.

"She feels like, 'That's the opposite of what I'm saying. How much she loves her animals, how much she loves her friends, how much she loves feeding you, taking care of you - none of that has changed", she said. "I would love it but I think it's pretty close to zero".

The friends also slammed reports Meghan was feuding with Kate Middleton as "completely untrue". He's never called. He's never texted.

However, their most revealing insight concerned her relationship with her father, a former Hollywood lighting director who split from Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, when she was two.

While the full article is in the magazine itself (and I'm flying to Hawaii later today so you best BELIEVE I'm buying it the second I land), People's site has some choice quotes, while USA breakfast show Good Morning America also reported on some of the interview.
