If the break between Meghan Markle and the monarchy was thunderous, it would not have been caused only by tensions within the Windsor-Mountbatten clan. While on Fox News, this Saturday, November 7, royal biographer Ingrid Seward revealed that the Duchess of Sussex “was not a big fan of England” and felt misunderstood by the people of the United Kingdom. United. Worse, she even felt that the British “did not particularly appreciate” before her shattering departure from the Firm alongside Prince Harry. A situation similar to that experienced by Wallis Simpson, wife of the former King Edward VIII, the uncle of His Majesty Elizabeth II.
A wake-up call is needed: in 1937, and when his union with his beautiful was contested by the Anglican Church, the government and the British taxpayer, the former sovereign abdicated in the name of the love he had for his woman, an American who was, moreover, divorced. He thus left the throne of England to the father of Her Majesty Elizabeth II. The similarities with Meghan Markle, originally from Los Angeles and married for the first time to Trevor Engelson, are therefore obvious. “It was a very similar scenario”, notes Ingrid Seward, adding that the United Kingdom is still “old fashioned” in the face of divorce. “She’s American and Harry seems to have given everything up for her,” she continues. And just like the former actress of the Suits series, “Wallis Simpson did not like England”, reproaching her in particular for her climate and her fetish grayness.
The Sussexes, the Crown’s unloved
A revelation that can only aggravate the already tense relations between Meghan Markle and the Crown. But if the good understanding is not at the rendezvous, the mother of little Archie is not the only one to feel some resentment towards the monarchy. Because, for his part, Prince Harry suffered an offensive refusal and not the least. This Sunday, November 8 – while England celebrated Remembrance Sunday, a day dedicated to the efforts of British soldiers and civilians during the two world wars – the grandson of Her Majesty Elizabeth II was not authorized to lay a wreath in his name to the Cenotaph of Westminster, as it however usually does. Exiled in Los Angeles, he hoped that a member of the royal family could take care of it in his place, thus making a request to Buckingham Palace. Request denied due to Megxit and his relinquishment of royal duties.
