Author Andrew Morton reflected on how his opinion of Meghan Markle has changed over the years. While speaking on the US weekly podcast, he insists Meghan demonstrated desire to integrate into the Royal Family. He listed the many sacrifices she made to become a part of the family and her willingness to do her part.
He concluded that it is a tragedy that it did not work out as she and Prince Harry stepped back from senior royal duties.
Mr Morton believes Meghan is able to appeal to a demographic the Royal Family is not currently engaging with.
He said: “I thought that Meghan Markle was a team player before, she was known as a team player on suits.
“When she joined the Royal Family she made every effort to get involved.
“She converted to the Church of England, she changed her nationality, was going to become a Brit.
“She gave up all her social media accounts.
“She also dropped charities she was a patent of.
“She seemed to be willing to be integrated into the Royal Family.”
Mr Morton then reflected on the Megxit fallout and what the Royal Family has lost.
He continued: “I think what has happened is that it is a small tragedy for the Royal Family.
“They have lost someone who was relevant to the section of the population that they couldn’t really reach.
“She and Prince Harry have shown that they are not prepared to accept what is put in front of them, they want to make their own way.”
In 2020, Meghan, 40, and Prince Harry, 37, announced that, after “many months of reflection and internal discussions”, they would be stepping back from their roles as senior working royals.
