• Meghan Markle was scolded for wearing a necklace with her and Prince Harry's initials  
  • The duchess was frustrated with the palace staff since they were telling her what she should and should not do
  • Prince William allegedly believes that the Sussexes are using "Finding Freedom" to make themselves look good to the public

Meghan Markle was scolded for wearing an accessory that the palace aids thought was unfavorable, according to a new book about the duchess and her husband Prince Harry.

Royal correspondents Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand wrote a new biography about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex entitled "Finding Freedom." In the book, they claimed that one of Markle's accessories caused her trouble.

People acquired an excerpt from Scobie and Durand's book and learned that the palace aides disapproved of Markle's $300 delicate 14-carat gold chain bearing her and Prince Harry's initials "M" and "H," respectively.

"She was advised that wearing such a necklace only served to encourage the photographers to keep pursuing such images — and new headlines," the authors wrote as quoted by People.

A senior Kensington Palace aide told the authors that someone from the palace called Markle. The former actress said little during the call and opted to listen to the counsel. However, she was "frustrated and emotional" after hanging up because of "the surreal experience of having someone from her boyfriend's office tell her what kind of jewelry to wear or not to smile at a photographer was too much."

The book claimed that the incident left Markle "distraught," so she called a friend to vent her frustrations.

"I can't win," Markle allegedly told her friend.

"They make out like I'm to blame for these pictures, that it looks like I'm encouraging them, that me even acknowledging the cameras may not be sending the right message. I don't know what to say. It was only yesterday that people online were saying I look miserable in pictures, because I was trying to just ignore the [photographer].”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex already said that they were not interviewed for the book. Moreover, they stressed that they did not contribute anything to it.

However, another source said Prince William wasn’t convinced of their statement. The Duke of Cambridge allegedly believes that the Sussexes are using the book to make themselves look good to the public.

"William thinks the book is their calculated way of controlling the narrative and that they took advantage of their entertainment contacts so they’d be painted in a favorable light" a source told Us Weekly.

"William’s the voice of reason and can’t help thinking that Harry’s ongoing resentment toward him, Kate and the rest of the royal family is a sign he’s struggling to move forward with his life in L.A."
