PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle believe the rest of the royals are just jealous of their "superstar power", insiders claim.
The couple have sparked fury after announcing they were ditching the royal family for a life in Canada with baby Archie.
Harry and Meghan claimed they want to be "financially independent" as they carve out a "progressive new role" for them while still supporting the Queen.
But royal insiders claim the pair believe their "superstar" power is only "rolled out" by the royals when it suits them, The Daily Mail reports.
The couple also think it is then quickly "constrained" by the family because so many of them are "jealous" of their popularity.
Pals have claimed Harry and Meghan felt "unwelcome" in the family and were sidelined as the monarchy moved towards a future focused on Prince William and Prince Charles.
This is despite the perks the pair have enjoyed since becoming royalty – including a £32million wedding at Windsor Castle watched by millions of people across the globe.
They had been due to take up residence in a large apartment at Kensington Palace but they instead moved into Frogmore Cottage after it saw a £2.4million renovation paid for by the taxpayer.
Living at the Palace would have meant they were close to the Prince William and Kate Middleton, who had attempted to make Meghan feel welcome by rolling out the red carpet in Christmas 2017.
But the "Fab Four" fell apart at the end of 2018 when Harry and Meghan quit the joint charitable foundation they were all part of amid rumours the two brothers were at war.
And they say they will be "financially independent" in their new lives – but will still be guarded by taxpayer-funded bodyguards.
Insiders now say Prince Harry has “completely changed” since meeting Meghan – said to be the driving force behind their choice.
The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly learned of Harry and Meghan's decision when the news broke on TV.
Harry has now been called to crisis talks with his family while Meghan has headed back to Canada to rejoin baby Archie.
He is said to have left the Queen "deeply distressed" by his sensational announcement.
No other members of the Royal Family were consulted before the shock statement was issued on Wednesday and the "hurt" Monarch was taken by surprise.
