Meghan Markle has become the target for a new opposition and this time, it’s coming from within the palace walls.
Before Meghan became the Duchess of Sussex, she kept up a certain California/Hollywood lifestyle that many other actors and actresses do. Once she officially became a member of the British royal family, those common lifestyles and practices had to be tossed out of the window.
One royal expert has noticed that those habits have yet to flee from Meghan despite her change in life and position, and she isn’t keeping her silence over it any longer.
Anna Pasternak, author of The Real Wallis Simpson, broke her silence on Meghan’s “need for media attention” and fans cannot believe her bold, unbridled words.
She started off by saying, “I think what Meghan has got to realize is that she cannot live life in the royal family like an A-List Hollywood star and that within the monarchy it demands a very different set of behaviors.”
She continued, “She does not understand that she cannot be this international star on this global stage, that is the Queen, then Charles, then William and Kate - they have to be the stars. That’s what ensures continuity in the monarchy.”
“The House of Windsor has done incredibly well to stay together when many other European royal houses have collapsed, and they’ve done it because they recognize who has to be the main event. She seems to want to bring her own style into the monarchy, and I don’t think that’s appropriate and I don’t think it’s going to work long term.”
She went on to point out the over-the-top “secret” baby shower Meghan had in NYC amid some of Europe’s biggest financial struggles. “I think that was in very poor taste actually when this country is in a state of extreme anxiety and flux and many people are suffering financially - I think you can’t have it both ways.”
“I don’t think on one hand say to the people, ‘Save the planet, save plastic,’ and then be revving up a massive carbon footprint going for a lavish baby shower in New York.”
What do you think about her words? Do you agree with her feelings about Meghan being “attention-seeking” or do you think this is another useless attack on the family?
