Meghan Markle 'frustrated' at not being able to get her side across amid rumours of feud with Kate Middleton
Meghan Markle is reportedly very frustrated since she cannot clap back at rumors on social media and also finds the restrictions and constraints of royal life 'debilitating'
For months now, rumors have suggested that there is tension in the British Royal Family in the Kensington Palace. It is now reported that these rumors are getting to the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle who is currently pregnant with her first child.
According to US Weekly, a source shared that 37-year-old Meghan Markle is "fed-up" of not being able to "stand up for herself" given that royal protocol states that she must maintain and keep her silence about the rumors surrounding a "feud" between her and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton. The source added that Meghan is finding it "frustrating and stressful" having "no voice". She reportedly also finds the restrictions and constraints of royal life "debilitating".
Before becoming a royal and marrying Prince Harry, Meghan was an outspoken feminist who would often give speeches at the United Nations forums. However, after marriage, she had to shut down all her social media accounts as she became a Duchess.
The source continued, "She's always relied on her own voice to stand up for others, and for herself. So not being able to say anything is a debilitating feeling. She's always been so independent, her entire life, and that's all been taken away from her."
"She's always been able to clap back on social media and now she can't." The insider added that the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry, who is very protective of his wife, is feeling the pressure as well.
The rumors of the feud broke out after it was announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would be moving away from Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, around 25 miles away. There were also rumors that Kate Middleton was left in tears after Princess Charlotte's bridesmaid dress fitting before Meghan and Prince Harry's wedding in May.
It was also claimed that the two clashed over staff as well. However, these rumors were never confirmed.
According to royal sources, there has been no falling out between the two families. As reported by Daily Mail, a source shared, "[W]hile there are some tensions behind the scenes, Kate is pretty unflappable and nothing has become bad enough to make Harry and Meghan want to move out. People are genuinely pleased to see them so happy. The truth is that there simply isn't enough room at Kensington Palace for them and I know they have been looking at Windsor as a possibility since before the wedding."
