A royal biographer recently claimed that Meghan Markle received “greater privileges” than Kate Middleton or any other royal fiancée in history.
Lady Colin Campbell, 70, who penned the 1992 bestseller ‘Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody,’ and appeared in ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ in 2015 said the royal family went “out of their way to welcome” the former ‘Suits’ actress.
“The Royal Family went out of their way to embrace (Meghan) in a way that they have never gone out of their way to embrace anybody else. Meghan was the only fiancée that was ever asked to Windsor before the wedding, and she was the only newlywed who was invited by the Queen to accompany her on a daily engagement. She is the only newlywed who was actually invited to stand with the Queen at Buckingham Palace, and Meghan was given greater privileges and embraced in a way that nobody has ever been before,” Colin told Daily Star Online.
Colin said that it was possible that the Queen took a shining to Meghan after experiencing her “dominant” personality. “Meghan has a very dominant personality and is someone who has never been shy of walking into a room and taking control of it. She has done that with everybody throughout the whole of her life, and she saw no reason to change when she joined the Royal Family. The Queen loves dominant, vivacious personalities, and Meghan can be very vivacious and charming and appealing,” Colin said.
The Jamaican-born British writer has a new book out on Thursday, June 25, about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex titled ‘Meghan and Harry: The Real Story.’ She told FEMAIL that Meghan has political aspirations and moved to the US as part of the plan to make the shift into the political sphere. “I know the Duchess of Sussex has political ambitions and I’ve been told that one day she wants to run for President,” Colin claimed. “I think everything she is doing, leaving the royal family and moving back to California is part of her plan and she has taken Harry along with her.”
She previously claimed in another interview that shortly after her wedding to Harry in May 2018, it became apparent that Meghan would ‘not adjust’ well to life as a royal. Colin recalled an instance in the past where Meghan had asked to leave a dinner held at her house at Castle Goring, Worthing in Sussex, following a garden party for Prince Charles’ 70th birthday because she was “bored.” “We were all horrified,” the author said. “It was a warning sign Meghan was not going to adjust as well as she’d hoped.”
In one of the interviews with The Sunday Times, she said Meghan has “squandered” the “most wonderful opportunity” by quitting the royal family. She also added in another interview with Australian TV network Channel Nine on Friday that Meghan was the “driving force” behind the decision to leave the royal family. “If you listen to their engagement tape they both state she’s been treated very well, she’s been welcomed with open arms and they can’t wait for her to become a working member of the royal family and she said she wanted to hit the ground running. It did not work out for Meghan the way she thought it would… Meghan did not make the adjustment she should have and could have, and she is the one in my opinion (who drove the departure),” she said.
