Continue reading and we’ll fill you in on details.
Royal Family News: Markle ‘Sick of the Negative Headlines’
An insider close to the Sussexes told Heat Magazine of the 41-year-old duchess, “These latest claims have really gotten under Meghan’s skin.”
“She’s told her team that something needs to be done. She’s so sick of the negative headlines and she’s desperate to come out fighting with some major damage control. Meghan feels as though doing another chat with Oprah is the best way to change the narrative and counter all the negative claims she’s read about herself recently. She’s been in contact with Oprah’s people already.”
Royal Family News: Brown’s New Book Reveals What the Sussexes are Really Like
In Tina Brown’s book, she interviews a multiplicity of insiders who describe what Meghan and Harry are actually like beyond the public eye. For example, of Markle’s mood after touching down in Australia in 2018, Brown said she “apparently hated every second of it. She found the itinerary of engagements ‘pointless,’ a former palace employee told me.”
The former palace employee also reportedly said, “She didn’t understand why things were set up in that way. Instead of being excited when thousands of people showed up at the [Sydney] Opera House, it was very much like, ‘What’s the purpose? I don’t understand this.'”
Elaborating, Brown said, “The ‘this’ being the representational role of the British monarchy and its traditional agenda, rather than the focus on causes she wanted to spotlight. Such engagements are old school, yes, but create classic royal ties that bind.”
Royal Family News: The Duke of Sussex Leaves ‘Harry Shaped Hole’ in The Firm
According to OK!, Brown also mentioned that meeting Markle was what motivated Harry to leave the royalty, adding that “Meghan certainly saw the deals that were there to be made because they were royals. It’s as though she couldn’t resist everything that was on offer on the celebrity buffet,” Brown shared.
“I actually think there is a Harry-shaped hole in the royal family now. And Harry was beloved, actually, by the British people. And people adored Meghan when she came into the mix. So, it was actually very, very sad for everybody that it went so wrong.”
