A nickname that is not given by chance. Last February, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry renounced their titles as senior members of the British monarchy after suffering Elizabeth II’s refusal to see them perform royal duties in parallel with their personal commitments. A blow for the Sussex couple who decided to engage in a great interview granted to Oprah Winfrey, a first since their exit from the British royal family. And during this interview, excerpts of which have already been released, the Duchess of Sussex uses a particular nickname to talk about the Windsors: The Firm.
If we translate it quite simply by “the firm”, Meghan Markle describes the British royal family as a big company. A term that she is not however the first to use specifies The Mirror, which explains that it would be Prince Philip who would have given this nickname to his family during his marriage to Elizabeth II, thus making the Windsors not a family , but above all a company for which each member works. A detail that the Queen herself did not fail to remind the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. “You work for the monarchy, the monarchy does not work for you,” she told them when they had hinted that they wished to pursue their royal duties in parallel with their personal commitments.
Meghan Markle accuses royal family of “lies”
Very firm words that Meghan Markle has obviously well integrated, she who does not intend to be tender towards the royal family, and in particular “the cabinet”, a term well known at Buckingham Palace which designates the very institution of the British monarchy. And that the Duchess now accuses him of having fed many “lies” about her husband and herself. “I don’t know how they could expect that after all this time we would just stay silent if there is an active role the cabinet plays in perpetuating the lies about us,” she said. denounced during this interview, negotiated at several thousand pounds, while Elizabeth II she said she was “delighted” that the Sussex couple found happiness elsewhere.
