British royals news reveals that Meghan Markle may have had more problems behind closed palace doors than royal watchers first realized. It’s been said that part of the reason that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped back from their roles as senior royals was due to Meghan’s inability to adapt to royal life. Well, now some new revelations are coming out about Meghan’s clashes with Palace staff.
It was reported by the Tatler several weeks ago that Meghan and Kate Middleton had a clash during the preparations for Harry and Meghan’s wedding over whether Princess Charlotte and the other young bridesmaids should wear tights along with their dresses.
A source told the outlet that Kate Middleton thought that the girls should wear tights according to protocol, but Meghan disagreed.
Photographs from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding suggest that the girls ended up NOT wearing tights, which would indicate a Meghan win on the issue. But later, it seems that Meghan had clashes with Kate’s staff, which didn’t end so well for the newest member of the royal family.
Specifically, royal author Tom Quinn says that Meghan argued with Kate Middleton’s staff about “getting the sort of attention she deserved.” This apparently happened after Meghan fought back after a member of Kate’s staff turned down one of her requests.
Quinn said: “It was almost as if in that one encounter, it encapsulated for Meghan the problem that she had, that she’s a Princess and she’s number two.”
The argument with staff is said to have happened when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were living at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace. The staff member apparently told Meghan that he couldn’t fulfill her demands because he worked for Kate, and Meghan felt that she had been put in her place.
Meghan reportedly argued with the staff member, which left Kate “horrified.” But according to Quinn, Meghan apparently had a chip on her shoulder about not being treated with the same respect as Kate, “so [Meghan] can take it badly and doesn’t take it lying down.”
At any rate, it certainly sounds like there was some telling behind-the-scenes drama unfolding before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to leave their royal life behind. One wonders how Meghan will feel about the treatment she gets in Hollywood now that she’s re-emerging there as a former actress.
It’s of course hard right now to judge Meghan’s reception (and her reaction to that reception) due to the coronavirus lockdown that’s ongoing, but who knows – Meghan’s adjustment issues could follow her!
