In March this year, Meghan Markle accused Prince Harry’s relatives of racism and harassment. Then she said that her husband’s family constantly brought her to tears. Writer Phil Dampier explained why the former actress decided on such revelations.
The author of the book “In royal costume: Harry and Meghan in their own words” Phil Dampier explained why Markle told Oprah Winfrey in an interview about the bad relationship with the royal family. According to the writer, the former actress was just looking for an excuse to permanently stop communicating with her husband’s relatives.
“I don’t believe the royal family didn’t help Meghan when she needed protection, and I don’t believe she was an outcast because of racial prejudice. I don’t think that’s the reason for the “Megzit”. I’m sure Meghan never intended to stay in the royal family. I’m afraid that all her accusations against the Queen, her relatives, her courtiers, and their relationship with them and Harry are just a pretext. The reason for leaving is quite different, ” says Dampierre.
Recall, in an interview with Winfrey, 39-year-old Markle said that the family of Prince Harry humiliated her. According to Meghan, even before the wedding, Kate Middleton found something to complain about. “I’m not saying this to offend anyone, because it was a really tough pre-wedding week. And Kate brought me to tears because she was upset about something, but she admitted it and apologized. It was hard to accept that I was blamed not only for what I didn’t do but also for what happened to me,” she shared.
Harry’s wife also accused his relatives of racism. As it turned out, the daughter of Elizabeth II, Princess Anne, was worried about the color of the Markle baby’s skin. Later, the royal expert Lady Colin Campbell commented on the incident.
“There was no concern. Princess Anne only warned Harry that if the marriage continued and there were children, it would cause big problems. She spoke to him about Meghan’s inability to appreciate their cultural heritage and respect the institution of the crown. As we can see, Anna was right. Markle interpreted these words as if it was the color of the skin that was meant. Well, we see people who are very eager to find a weak spot where there is certainly no weak spot, ” Campbell explained.
