Meghan Markle’s experience as a royal was far from the fairytale she may have imagined. According to a palace staffer, the Duchess of Sussex “hated being second-rate princess” to Kate Middleton.
The staffer, who spoke to The Sun on condition of anonymity, said that Markle was “constantly compared to Kate” and felt “inferior” to the Duchess of Cambridge. “Meghan felt she was constantly being judged and compared to Kate, who she saw as the perfect princess,” the staffer said.
The staffer also said that Markle felt “overwhelmed” by the pressures of being a royal and “resented” the fact that she was always in the shadow of Middleton. “Meghan felt she was constantly in the shadow of Kate and struggled to cope with the pressures of being a royal,” the staffer said.
The staffer also noted that Markle felt “unsupported” by the royal family and that she “often felt alone and isolated”. The staffer added that Markle was “hurt” by the negative press coverage and felt “unwelcome” in the royal family.
Markle’s experience as a royal is a stark reminder of the challenges faced by women in positions of power. While the royal family may be steeped in tradition and protocol, Markle’s story is a reminder that women should be supported and respected in all aspects of their lives.
