Royal expert makes concerning claims about Meghan's relationship with Harry's friends
Meghan Markle famously does not read about herself and it's just as well because some of what's written isn't all that nice.
If she's not being trolled online, she's getting it in the press from family members and, for some reason, Piers Morgan.
Now one royal biographer is claiming that Meghan still hasn't managed to break into Prince Harry's inner circle.
Despite being his wife and having a child with him, Angela Levin has said that some of his pals reckon she's taken over.
“I think she’s not popular in a lot of circles often because they adore Harry and they seem to think that she’s running the show," she told broadcaster Gayle King in a TV special about Meghan and Harry this week.
Apparently, some of Meghan's feminist and social opinions don't sit well with the upper class types the Prince hangs out with.
Maiysha Kai, editor of online magazine The Glow Up, shot back at the criticism, exposing it to be pretty racist and sexist.
"Whether it is saying she is difficult or demanding, there is a subtext there that reads very much into this angry black woman stereotype that leads into a domineering woman stereotype and that doesn’t just allow her to be a human being who has agency and who wants to do the best that she can."
"I think that any criticism that infers that Harry has somehow been manipulated by Meghan is … not just un-feminist, but it's unfair to him as well."
Sounds about right.
Here's hoping Angela, who wrote 'Harry: A Biography of a Prince', is wrong about this.
Of course, this isn't the first time we've heard of a rift between the Duchess and her husband's conservative friends.
It was reported last year that her outspokenness on certain issues has rubbed some up the wrong way.
"She is ultra-liberal and that trendy-lefty stuff does not go down well with some of Harry’s friends," Lady Colin Campbell, who was a close friend of Lady Diana's, told The Daily Beast.
