Meghan Markle used royal family and duchess title for 'bigging up' her own image, claims historian
LONDON, ENGLAND: The interview of Meghan Markle with The Cut has led to some heated discussion which includes even Loraine Kelly claiming the article as the "most bizarre thing." Now, historian Dr Tessa Dunlop opined that "Meghan scooped up the tinsel and the title" before leaving for US.
According to The Sun, Dunlop spoke to a palace confidential and stated, "The journalist in question basically says what a lot of us, I think, now realize is that Meghan went into the Royal Family, scooped up the tinsel and the title, and went back to America and has started working with those credits."
Dunlop also stated, "[and] bigging up her own image and making her own products. She further stated, "I would say, to an extent, fair play to her. That's the way of the world." Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were back in England to attend the One Young World summit and other events. In a recent interview with The Cut, the Duchess of Sussex made some interesting revelations including her decision to be back on Instagram. She also stated that adjusting to her new life as a Duchess was never easy. “It was a big adjustment — a huge adjustment to go from that kind of autonomy to a different life,” says Meghan. Meghan Markle's bombshell 6,000-word interview with 'The Cut' magazine was released on August 29.
A report by OK! magazine suggests that the queen is reportedly encouraged to strip the Sussexes of their titles. Earlier, the pair was granted permission to continue using their titles, but it’s reported that it may not be for much longer. It further stated that since the pair have continued to use the titles whilst shading the royal family in multiple public interviews, Queen Elizabeth may take away the denominations for good.
The insider also added, "Prince William is desperate to preserve the credibility of the royal family. Expect that he will demand a review of the agreement that allows them to retain their Duke and Duchess titles."
