Meghan Markle’s real-life fairytale, going from D-list American actress to the Duchess of Sussex, has hit a major stumbling block. Queen Elizabeth II took off her kid gloves after Meghan wreaked havoc within the Royal Family, pulling an unforgivable stunt. That caused Her Majesty to deny Markle residency in Kensington Palace, and boy, you don’t want to miss all the palace intrigue.
Meghan Markle is one of the most polarizing figures in the media today. For months after her surprise engagement to Prince Harry was announced, the British and American press tired to paint her as this sweet feminist, who was just dying to do good deeds.
But the astute Brits never warmed to her because of the American actress’ personal history and the way she wormed her way into Harry’s life. It seems she was still living with celebrity chef Cory Vitello when Meghan got a mutual friend to set her up with the prince.
Meghan was living in Canada where Harry chaired the Invictus Games, and that’s when they first got together. The Guardian reports on the timing: “Miss Markle was still, at that stage, the partner of Mr. Vitiello, a celebrity chef, and restaurateur whose latest venture is a chain of rotisseries in Canada called Flock.”
Right from the start, Meghan became a thorn in the side to the Queen, and Harry’s good friends noticed a change in him as the former Suits star demanded he gives up hunting and other activities that are Royal Family traditions.
“Her politics are an issue,” Lady Colin Campbell, a confidant of Princess Diana’s with good contacts among the wider Royal Family, told The Daily Beast.
“She is ultra-liberal and that trendy-lefty stuff does not go down well with some of Harry’s friends. He has introduced her to them all at parties and weddings and private dinners, but she is very anti- a lot of the things that their world functions upon, such as shooting,” explained Lady Campbell.
And instead of keeping her politics to herself, Meghan continued to speak out. The Irish Sun reported in July that Markle expressed her support for abortion during a summer party with Irish political leaders and celebrities at Glencairn. This was a huge issue with the Queen, and one of the many screw-ups by Meghan, which have caused the palace added stress.
But it was Meghan Markle’s rudeness and outright hysterical demands that caused three royal staffers to quit. Then, during the preparations for her big wedding, the former Hollywood starlet drove her sister-in-law, Catherine, the woman who will one day be queen, to tears.
As the Daily Beast reports, it was “an argument over bridesmaid dresses” that caused the rift that had been brewing for quite some time. In fact, Meghan had issues with Kate’s daughter, Princess Charlotte’s fitting, with Markle complaining like a spoiled brat.
The Queen was apprised of Meghan’s hysterics with Kate and Charlotte, and she made it clear who was in charge. First, Her Majesty told Harry, “Why did Meghan need a veil for the wedding, given it was to be her second marriage,” and then she denied her use of the gorgeous emerald tiara, saying, “She gets what tiara she’s given by me.”
The Queen also complained about Meghan’s blinding white wedding dress given she was 36-years-old and divorced. Adding insult to injury, the Monarch then allowed her granddaughter, Princess Eugenie, to don the emerald tiara on her wedding day in October.
That’s when the American diva lashed out announcing her pregnancy during Eugenie’s wedding which was in poor taste even by American standards. But Ms. Markle wouldn’t win this war.
In a surprise move, the Monarch had Kensington Palace issue this statement: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move to Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Estate early next year as they prepare for the arrival of their first child.”
This is a blow to Meghan. Frogmore Cottage is not a move up. All you have to do is take one look at the place and you’ll understand that this is a form of banishment. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had planned to move into Kensington Palace. Elle Magazine reports, “Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will not become Kate Middleton and Prince William’s neighbors in Kensington Palace’s apartment 1.”
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex won’t even be living in Kensington Palace or London, period,” adds Elle Magazine. This comes on the heels of Prince William requesting an official separation between the two households. He and Kate have tried to get along with the narcissistic Meghan for Harry’s sake, but the final straw was when the former Suits star rudely treated the Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Charlotte, driving them to tears.
Meghan’s trying to stem the rash of bad headlines by putting her PR team into damage control. But these moves by the Queen are making it crystal clear that the D-list actress has not only been banished physically but Her Majesty has written her off altogether. Meghan Markle, the social climbing mediocre actress, is no match for the 1,000-year-old British monarchy, and the crown must always win.
