Meghan Markle overconfident


In 2016, Meghan Markle joined the British Royal Family. A presence that turned the monarchy upside down. A duchess of Sussex too free, and especially endowed with a very great confidence in her according to a royal biographer.

Meghan Markle did not stay long with the Windsor family. At the beginning of 2020, the couple of Sussex decided to withdraw from the British royal family and to exile thousands of miles from the United Kingdom to California.

Upon her arrival in 2016, the woman who arrived straight from Hollywood had to comply with one of the strictest protocols in the world. Far from having the codes, Meghan Markle did not know how to integrate the British monarchy, worse, she caused a lot of damage.

In the opinion of some, the young woman would not have liked to be dictated to, thinking she could create a role for herself. This is a mistake. Queen Elizabeth II does not compromise the rules.

For Robert Lacey, the monarchy did not expect – and was certainly not ready – for such an upheaval, as our colleagues in The Mirror report. “What you have to understand is that the whole strategy of the monarchy was based on them sticking together.

Meghan changed all that. She is difficult. She has an incredible and dangerous level of self-confidence,” says the author of the book Battle of Brothers, which focuses on the cracks in the duo formed by William and Harry.

In 2016, Meghan Markle met Prince Harry during a blind date organized by a friend. Under the spell, the Duke of Sussex hoped that his family would be just as charmed by her beauty. But according to the historian Robert Lacey, author of the book Battle of Brothers quoted by the British tabloid The Mirror on Friday, October 2, the former actress would have baffled the Firm with an asset deemed “dangerous” for the monarchy by the biographer. “What you have to understand is that the whole strategy of the monarchy was based on their cohesion,” he begins, “Meghan changed all that.”

Because of Meghan Markle’s confident personality and strong, assertive character. “She is difficult. She has an incredible and dangerous level of self-confidence,” says Robert Lacey. A strong woman with feminist and progressive values, against whom the Windsor-Mountbatten clan, rooted in tradition, didn’t know what to do. And according to the historian, Prince Harry was not at the end of his troubles because of his place in the royal family of England, a clan that would treat second-born children “badly. “They just don’t know what to do with the spare part and they certainly don’t know what to do with his wife,” Robert Lacey says. As the younger brother of a future king and sixth in line to the throne of England, little Archie’s father has built a new life for himself, his meeting with Meghan Markle having opened his eyes to “something rotten in the heart of royalty that is not for him.”

Harry and William still at odds

The 76-year-old former journalist is encouraged to dismiss any hope of reconciliation between Prince Harry and Prince William, who has been on the outskirts of the country for several months. Robert Lacey informs that, between the two dukes, the gulf is “worse than we think.” “If this rift between the brothers is not healed in one way or another, it will continue with the abdication crisis and Diana’s death as one of the traumas that changed the monarchy,” he writes, again in Battle of Brothers. Isolated in Los Angeles, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could nonetheless take a step towards the Crown by celebrating Christmas at Windsor Castle (before spending early 2021 in the United Kingdom to secure commitments close to their hearts) … provided the coronavirus pandemic allows them to do so.

A failed entry

For Robert Lacey, the palace does not treat “second-born babies” well: “They don’t know what to do with the spare wheel and certainly not with the wife of the spare wheel,” he explains about Prince Harry and his wife. All attention would be focused on Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, who would be brought to reign.

The others are forced to remain in the shadows. But for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who wanted to change the world, to keep a low profile is out of the question. Tired of always playing the supporting roles, Prince Harry took advantage of the arrival of Meghan Markle in his life to emancipate himself.

The younger son of Prince Charles would have thus understood “that there was something rotten in the heart of royalty that was not for him”.
