‘Absolute nonsense!’ Diana biographer gives brilliant take on Meghan’s royal staff clashes

181

MEGHAN MARKLE’s reported difficulties with staff members in the Royal Family and Archewell have been thoroughly analysed by Princess Diana biographer, Andrew Morton.

Mr Morton told listeners: “Diana was blamed for everything that changed inside the Royal Family.

“The fact that various people had left their employ was all Diana’s fault.

“Same with Meghan. All her fault.

“I defended her on that because it’s absolute nonsense to think that somebody who doesn’t know the royal ropes at all is responsible for all of this.”

He continued: “Diana didn’t know the royal ropes, she was trying to keep her head above water.

“I think you’d find the same with Meghan.

“She was struggling to survive, thinking she was going to hit the ground running.

“Well she’d hit the ground, but she wasn’t running, she was going flat on her face.”

By the fourth year of Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles, 40 members of their household had resigned, including his private secretary.

The Princess of Wales was said to have banished all of her husband’s old friends, made him to give up shooting and even throwing her slippers at him to get his attention.

Diana was branded autocratic and nicknamed “the mouse that roared” by another biographer Tina Brown.

Similarly, the Sussexes saw a number of personnel changes both during and after their time in the establishment, with much of the blame being laid at the Duchess’ feet.

It was even reported that Kensington Palace staff cruelly nicknamed Meghan ‘Duchess Difficult’.

The reports have continued even outside the monarchy.

In March, it was reported that their Archewell Chief of Staff was stepping down after 11 months in the role.

However, Catherine St-Laurent has actually transitioned to a senior advisory role, not stepped down entirely.
