Meghan Markle’s brief stint as a royal was awe-inspiring.
Not as tall as she thought.
According to an insider, the former Suits actress apparently ‘misinterpreted’ her status as a royal family and when it failed, Markle felt ‘turned away’.
And her biggest problem was that Kate Middleton lived in Kensington Palace and not her, author Tom Quinn told the Pod Save the Queen Podcast.
Quinn said the Californian was drawn to the fantasy of a lush royal life after her marriage to Prince Harry. The reality was decidedly less glamorous.
One of her main complaints was that the newlyweds were “disappointed” to have to stay in the “little” Frogmore Cottage. Inside Kensington Palace were Prince William and Kate Middleton.
It soon became apparent to Markle that she was, in fact, a “second-rate royal,” Quinn said.
“I think she actually wasn’t overly enthusiastic about it,” he told the podcast. “It looked like they were being transferred to a small prefab in the park.”

Meanwhile, according to the Daily Mirror, the royal family are tired of dealing with the fallout from the Oprah Winfrey bombshell.
“The Oprah Winfrey interview, let’s do nothing about it, went like a balloon,” Russell Myers, Royal Mirror editor, told UK TalkRadio. “As far as Harry and Meghan are concerned, I think they will have to sort things out on their own.
He added, “They have been a distraction for most of the family… There will be a lot of discontent within the camp, and it remains to be seen whether they will be brought back.”
When Harry was in the UK for the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip, the detente efforts failed. And now the Prince of California is on the sidelines.
“The rest of the royal family are very, very united in trying to get things back in their own hands,” Myers said, adding Prince Charles remained in a “cold fury.”
“If that is his mindset, I think the British people will be behind him every step of the way. I think most people think, “This guy Harry doesn’t deserve to be forgiven,” he said.
However, Myers added that rather than being in decline, the monarchy will enter a “new dawn” when William becomes king.
“I don’t think this is the last straw for the monarchy. I think it’s an evolution rather than a revolution, ”he said.
