British writer Tom Bower, known for his investigative journalism has claimed Meghan Markle wasn’t content being the Duchess alone. In an opinion piece for The Sun, Bower has written that Markle wanted to be the “Queen of England”. He has also accused her of marrying Harry for “fame” in Hollywood among other things. 

The journalist was reportedly offered a six-figure deal to tell the story of the Duchess based on his “research”. He has further claimed that Meghan “wanted to be the Queen” as she wasn’t willing to walk behind other Royals. “Like a Hollywood diva, she has cursed those who don’t understand that being the Duchess of Sussex was not enough. Walking in procession behind the other royals, especially Prince William and Kate, was demeaning,” Bower wrote.

'The question is whether Meghan ever intended to stay in Britain'

Bower notes, “She wanted to be the Queen of England. All those Britons who stood in her way are accused of sexism and racism. The question is whether Meghan ever intended to stay in Britain. Did she honestly want to sacrifice her Californian lifestyle and serve as a member of the Royal Family in rainy Britain?” In another section of the article, Bower has asked if Markle always intended to “use the marriage and title as a stepping stone to further her ambitions in the sunshine?” He further says, "Convinced of her own greatness, Meghan thinks she has, for years, been the victim of plots to destroy her destiny. While others shone in leading roles, Meghan had bit parts.

Meeting with Harry 'scripted'

Bower claims Markle “scripted” her meeting with Harry after she was written out of the Canadian show ‘Suits’ in 2018 and has even accused her of staging the blind date with the prince, the story of which marks the beginning of their relationship. “After she was written out in 2018, brilliantly she invented a new script. Intelligent, attractive and ruthless, Meghan set her sights on marrying higher. And she headed to London.‘Who are the single men?’ she asked an Englishwoman. Among the cast list was Prince Harry,” Bower writes. 

He has further added, “Their meeting in a London club was described as ‘a blind date’. But Meghan knew exactly who she was meeting — and how much the relationship could work for her.” The writer has then described Harry as a “forlorn character searching for love”.

Is Markle in love with Harry? 

While Harry has never hesitated from expressing love for his wife and publicly had her back, in Bower’s opinion it is unsure if Markle fell head over heels in love with Harry. “Harry fell head over heels in love. We don’t know if the actress felt the same.  One truth is certain: Harry’s closest relations including William and Prince Charles were wary whether the Hollywood divorcee would make the necessary sacrifices to serve as a loyal member of the Royal Family,” Bower claims in his op-ed.
Bower has also called Markle out for her “hypocrisy”, as he’s slammed her for speaking to the US journalists while refusing to show son Archie’s face. “Friends’ criticisms of the Queen, prompted it seemed by Meghan, were outrightly rude. Insiders know there is more scandal to emerge. One year later, I considered writing the truth about Meghan. I knew the Royal Family and their staff had become alarmed that she threatened to become an agent of destruction,” Bower alleged.
