Other Royal Family News
In other Royal Family news, Meghan Markle is taking more backlash, this time for calling her mansion in South Africa a “housing unit,” per Express UK. Royal commentator Angela Levin has, yet again, taken aim at the Duchess of Sussex – this time for her comments about her stay in South Africa when she was a working royal.
Royals fans many recall the 2019 trip to South Africa made by the Duke and Duchess. Meghan reportedly opened up about the trip earlier this week when she brought up a fire that had broken out in her son Archie’s nursery at the time. But when Meghan dubbed the home of the High Commissioner where the Sussexes stayed a “housing unit,” at least one commentator was incensed.
Levin expressed her disgust in a tweet that read “In her podcast Meghan called the High Commissioner’s mansion in South Africa where she H and A were staying a ‘housing unit.” Comparing the duchess’s reference to her complaints about her 2018 wedding, Levin went on “Similar to when she dismissed her £32million wedding telling Oprah it was for the public as she wanted something ‘authentic.’ Nothing ever enough for her.” Be sure to return here often for more Royal Family news and updates.
