The media is now filled with endless stories of the hell that the Negress Meghan Markle is creating for the entire royal family.
I have no idea what these people thought was going to happen when they decided to bring a literal jungle primitive into the highest level of British society.
Typically, when Princes William and Harry embark on a royal world tour, they host drink nights for the members of the press who accompany them.
But things were different this past October, when Harry and Meghan Markle — the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex — toured Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
“They basically blanked the media on this tour, which is very short-sighted,” according to Duncan Larcombe, who covered the royal family for London’s The Sun for many years.
“All of Harry’s staff have always thought he was fantastic, but the two of them [together] are high maintenance,” said Larcombe of the royal couple, adding that the prince has become “quite grumpy and aloof from his own inner circle of staff. Harry was always very pally with [them], so this is very unlike him.
“What people love about Harry is that he wears his heart on his sleeve,” Larcombe added. “He’s down to earth, a normal guy trapped in the royal world, and he doesn’t take himself very seriously. But now he is.”
The difference, sources say, is Meghan — whose American independence is rubbing some royal insiders the wrong way. They add that it’s been tough for the strong-willed duchess, who is expecting a baby in April, to go from controlling her own personal and professional life to not being allowed to make all her own decisions.
As a result, she is allegedly taking her frustrations out on those around her.
Yes, I’m sure it’s something something something about the “independent American spirit” instead of the significantly less complicated explanation that she is a niggerbitch acting like a niggerbitch.
I’m pretty sure this wasn’t an issue for Grace Kelly, also an American actress who married a European prince.
In fact, Kelly was beloved by the people of Monaco.
Blaming American culture for the behavior of niggers is really a kind of blood libel.
“During their tour, just before they were about to go to the Invictus Games, Meghan was bawling at her hairdresser to get her hair right, while at the same time someone was ironing the bottom of the dress she was wearing,” said a tour insider.
Larcombe said he is “not in the least surprised there’s been teething problems” as the duchess adjusts to her new life and the constraints that come with it.
While her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, briefly held a position as a part-time fashion buyer before marrying Prince William, Meghan is unprecedented in that she previously had a high-profile acting and philanthropic career.
“As an actress, Meghan expects perfection,” he said. “But when you’re in the royal family, you have to learn that it’s not about you, it’s about what you represent.”
Again: Grace Kelly.
Although no royal hairdresser would have had a hard time doing her hair, would they?
According to a longtime friend of Meghan’s, part of the culture clash comes from her eagerness to make her mark.
“Meghan is a great girl — the kind you can go and have a drink with. She’s always there for her friends and is extremely loyal,” the friend told The Post, pointing out how the duchess has had the same close pals for years, including her college BFF Lindsay Roth and stylist Jessica Mulroney.
But, the friend added, “She’s ballsy. She’s unashamedly ambitious — she has a great work ethic — and I can only imagine how that’s gone down inside the palace.”
Indeed, Meghan has thrown herself into her work. She’s hands-on at the Royal Foundation, the philanthropic organization she leads with her husband, Prince William and Kate.
“Meghan wanted to get [deeply involved] from the beginning,” said a palace insider. “She’s very bright and questioned absolutely everything from her first briefing.”
It was Meghan’s idea to publish a cookbook to aid the survivors of London’s Grenfell Tower fire, which caused the deaths of 72 people in June 2017.
The Duchess of Sussex’s hard-driving work ethic has even pushed sister-in-law Kate to work harder since her recent return from maternity leave. “Kate has to keep up with Meghan!” said the palace insider.
“Ambitious” and “pushing people” I can see.
“Work ethic”… not so much.
However, this ambition has also ruffled feathers, with three key members of Meghan and Harry’s staff resigning in the past few months.
Among them, the couple’s private secretary, who had previously been the Queen’s personal secretary and was charged with helping Meghan settle into royal life. The duchess’ personal assistant had previously worked for singer Robbie Williams but, the Mirror reported, left the palace because “Meghan put a lot of demands on her and it ended up with her in tears.”
Similarly, Harry and Meghan’s chief protection officer quit after only six months because of resistance from the duchess.
“Even though [Meghan] was a famous actress, she could still do what she wanted in the way of getting around freely,” a source told the Daily Mail. “But in her current role she can’t go anywhere without her protection team, and that’s a massive constraining force on an individual like her.”
All of this is stressing out her husband, sources say.
“Harry wants to be protective of Meghan,” Larcombe explained. “If she’s getting frustrated and stressed, he is the one reading the riot act to the staff and doing the demanding on her behalf.
This is really the situation of all blacks.
It always has to be some white guy out there explaining away their belligerent, anti-social behavior.
“But you can’t blame Meghan, she’s gone into her biggest role yet and she’s put her heart and soul into it. Yes, she is firing off e-mails to staff at 5 a.m., but she’s super-keen and Harry is taking his lead from her. He is under a lot of pressure behind the scenes.”
As if that’s not enough, some of the British newspapers have claimed there’s a rivalry between Meghan and sister-in-law Kate. Camilla Tominey of the Daily Telegraph — who first broke the news of Harry and Meghan’s romance — reported that Meghan had made Kate cry during a fitting for Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress. Tellingly, it was not denied by the palace.
But a prominent London high-society source told The Post, “I don’t think it’s true that Meghan and Catherine don’t get on — they are just very different people. Catherine is so incredibly lovely, and Meghan is clearly very determined and ambitious and is applying the same principles to this job as to any other [acting] role.”
“Very different people” is a wee bit of an understatement.
In my opinion.
The high-society source added that Meghan has a reputation as a social-climber: “In the early days, Harry’s closest friends tried to help Meghan out when she was the new girl on the block, but she didn’t really need them after she got the ring on her finger.”
Next up, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will soon relocate to their new home at Frogmore Cottage — which has undergone a $5 million renovation — within the grounds of Windsor Castle. News of the move caused a storm in the UK, where there was speculation the couple were trying to distance themselves from Kensington Palace neighbors William and Kate, and reports that the brothers had fallen out over Harry and Meghan’s whirlwind courtship.
“Bruv, is you gonna marry that nigger, bruv? Is you off your bloody rocker, m8?”
The British really are sweet summer childs.
As an American, I just can’t imagine thinking you could domesticate a wild jungle beast. We have a hard time getting these people to work at McDonald’s and not have angry breakdowns and fight the customers.
And the British thought they could make one into a princess?
