Queen to have 'quiet word' with Meghan Markle about avoiding PR blunders when she celebrates her birthday this summer
A royal expert claimed that the Queen will be having a "quiet word" with the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle on avoiding PR blunders when she celebrates her upcoming 38th birthday at the Balmoral Castle on the August 4.
Meghan Markle will reportedly be celebrating her birthday there. According to reports, the Queen will advise Meghan on how to navigate the PR world and avoid any mistakes. The 93-year-old Queen is believed to be very fond of Meghan and is keen that she "avoids any further PR blunders". Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry recently welcomed their firstborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, and the trip to the Scottish Castle will be the first for Meghan and Archie. The invite from the Queen is said to be a "great honor".
According to The Sun, royal expert Phil Dampier shared, "This might be a good opportunity to have, not an assessment of her, but a quiet chat away from the madding crowds as to how she thinks it is going."
Dampier added that the Queen will probably use the opportunity to give Meghan some words of advice. "I'm sure there must be things where she perhaps thinks things could be done better, so I'm sure she would give her some advice, especially if she asks for it," Dampier shared.
The expert also shared that the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla Parker are "very fond" of Meghan and "find her engaging and intelligent". Off late, Meghan has been slammed at events, most recently for sporting jeans while making an appearance at Wimbledon. In addition to this, her security was seen asking a bystander to avoid taking pictures of her during the tennis tournament. The Duchess of Sussex was also called out for keeping the details of Archie's christening and godparents private, though it was reportedly Prince Harry's wish.
The couple had also been slammed for revamping their home in Frogmore Cottage in Windsor using taxpayers money, which was gifted to them by the Queen herself.
