Meghan Markle Misinterpreted The Realm Of Royalty


Meghan Markle misunderstood the royal world as glamorous, says expert.

Speaking of Kate Middleton and Prince William's heart-stealing, down-to-earth appearances at Commonwealth games, royal expert Daniela Esler reveals how Meghan Markle consistently overestimated royal life.

Writing for news.com.au, Ms Elser said: "Now, both of these instances could be filed under ‘Aw, aren’t they lovely?’ examples of two people who might be destined for coronations and crowns but who have not let their elevated status turn their heads.

"But, this all comes after the publication of Tom Bower’s Revenge: Meghan, Harry And The War Between The Windsors, a 464-page full-frontal take-down of Harry and Meghan, Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

"And this week’s William and Kate stories? Those two, simple, brief interactions with the public?

"Well, they go a way to underscoring one of his key arguments, which is that Meghan’s expectations of a royal life were a world away from the often unglamorous reality.

"Think, more making polite chitchat outside a public loo than private jets and Pol Roger."
