MEGHAN Markle watched as an aide demanded a private area for her at a posh restaurant, a book has claimed.
The now-Duchess of Sussex’s handler then named-dropped Prince Harry by saying she needed a table because “it’s for someone who is dating a prince”, it alleged.
Former maître d' Michael Cecchi-Azzolina, who worked at the restaurant for two and a half years, wrote: “I said, ‘I still don’t have a private table for you’.”
Meghan, then known for her acting role in Suits, arrived 20 minutes early for their booking with her handler, who was allegedly aggressive with staff.
Mr Cecchi-Azzolina claimed the handler asked: “Are you aware my guest is dating Prince Harry and about to be a duchess? Don't you have a private area for us to wait?”
He wrote in his upcoming memoir: “My first impulse was to laugh.

"I could give two s**ts about Prince Harry's date, and by the attention the escort was drawing from the crowd at the bar, nor did anyone else.”
He said Meghan was “aloof” and claimed she “didn’t say a word”.
He added: “We get the most powerful people in the world that come here — no one really cares about you.”
The maitre also claimed celebrities including Vogue editor Anna Wintour and supermodel Naomi Campbell regularly showed up unannounced and often sent food back.

Earlier this week Whoopi Goldberg slammed Meghan Markle for comments she made over her time on Deal or No Deal, claiming that she made "other women feel bad".
On a recent episode of her podcast, Markle reflected on her time on the show Deal or No Deal, saying that she was made to feel like a pretty thing rather than a person.
During Wednesday's episode of The View that spoke about Markle's admission, host Whoopi Goldberg had an adverse opinion.
"OK. I just wanna say that on that show, you had a suitcase, and they wanted to know, is this the deal you want, or this is not the deal you want," Whoopi began.
"I don't know that the people who are sitting there are thinking about you like that. They're thinking: 'I want the money.'"
Whoopi then went on to mention Vanna White, a woman who has spent 40 years presenting in beautiful dresses on Wheel of Fortune.

Whoopi continued: "The objectification might be coming from you and how you felt about how these women were being portrayed.
"That's what you have to change because we're performers. When you're a performer, you take the gig … sometimes, you're in a bozo suit, sometimes you got a big nose, and this is just the way it is."
