Relations between Meghan Markle and the other members of the royal family were reportedly never good, to begin with. She married Prince Harry in 2018, in a wedding that a lot of people considered had the potential to disturb the harmony of the royal family.
They were right after all.
The relations in Buckingham Palace turned way too acrimonious, way too fast, with her relations with Kate Middleton taking the most damage. A time came when the differences between the two factions couldn’t be kept under wraps. And the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided that enough is enough in 2020 and they separated from the royal family.
Life after Buckingham Palace
Since then Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have moved on with their lives. They now have two children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, in their life. They have strived to focus their attention on the USA, rather than confining themselves to their homeland. But that doesn’t mean that the days they spent with the royal family are a thing of the past.
The Suits star and her husband are constantly reminding the world (or in some cases, telling them) of what treatment they had to bear when they lived in Buckingham Palace. Last year, they shared their harrowing experience in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. And now, the 38-year-old estranged prince is set to release a book, which will expose the royal family in its entirety.
Megyn Kelly shows Meghan Markle the mirror
The couple has made it a point to expose the royal family for what they did to them. But where does one draw the line? Some people say that it is what their identity is all about now. After leaving the royal family for good, they now find themselves in a precarious position, where they are looking for topics that will ensure they stay relevant. And this has landed them in a lot of trouble over the years.
Megyn Kelly is a notable addition to the list of their critics. On her SiriusXM podcast, she castigated the A Random Encounter star for her usual behavior. She said, “There seems to be no limit on their appetite for ripping on the royals to whom they owe all of their fame and literally most of their fortune.”
She is not exactly amiss.
Megyn raises questions regarding Meghan Markle’s perceptions
The presenter also reminded Meghan Markle of how she is perceived by the population at large. She said, “(Meghan Markle) has less than 22% approval rating”. That’s a pretty awful number for a member of one of the most respected institutions in the UK. And she put this statistic down to her action of disgracing the royals always.
Kelly also mocked the 41-year-old’s attempts to portray herself as the victim, and to show that they were a cut above the rest of the royals on the back of being “working royals”. But the best part is yet to come.
In what was perhaps the biggest burn to her, she called Markle out for constantly referring to Prince Harry as her “husband”. She said, “We get it. You bagged the gorilla. Congratulations! You got the big bear.” Markle must find this one a little hard to swallow. But she is no stranger to such criticisms.
