[Daily Star] Cracks started to show in Meghan Markle’s relationship with the Royal Family four days after she wed Prince Harry, Royal author Lady Colin Campbell has claimed in an exclusive interview with Daily Star Online.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wed on Saturday May 19 in 2018 in a star-studded ceremony held at Windsor Castle.
By Wednesday May 23rd, Meghan was the topic of conversation at Lady Colin Campbell’s house, she claims, as Meghan had done something “astonishing” at a 70th birthday party for Prince Charles the day before.
Lady Colin Campbell, best known for her 1992 best-seller book, Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody Knows and for being on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, told Daily Star Online how the Royal Family had wanted Meghan to be a “success”, but warning signs emerged just four days after the lavish wedding.
Lady C made the revelation to us ahead of her new long-awaited book, Meghan and Harry: The Real Story, which is published later this month.
Lady C told Daily Star Online: “I knew the tremendous amount of hope the Royal Family invested in Meghan being a success.
“Hundreds of millions of people of colour were rooting for Meghan, I was rooting for Meghan, being a Jamaican, I was emotionally invested in Meghan’s success.
“Virtually everybody I know, including my Royal friends, the wider aristocracy, wanted Meghan to be a success.
“But it quickly became apparent the ride may not be as smooth as everybody had hoped it would be, and it would not be as quite as positive as everybody had hoped it would be.”
Lady C said the first “warning” something wasn’t quite right was four days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wed at Windsor Castle on 19th May 2018.
On May 22nd the Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined the Royal Family in the grounds of Buckingham Palace where the Duchess of Cornwall and the Prince of Wales gathered for a party for Charles.
The garden party was thrown to celebrate the work of the Prince’s Charities in the year of Prince Charles’ milestone 70th birthday, and newlywed Prince Harry gave a speech.
Prince Charles’ joyful occasion was marked, Lady Campbell claims, by Meghan who did something that “astonished” an attendee with “impeccable palace connections”.
She told Daily Star Online: “I can’t repeat it exactly, it’s in the book, but what I can say is, something happened at the very first garden party at Buckingham Palace to celebrate Prince Charles’ 70th birthday and all of his charity work.
“Something happened there on the Tuesday, and I was told about it on the Wednesday evening at dinner by a household name with impeccable palace connections.
“We were all absolutely gobsmacked and astonished, we all thought this doesn’t bode well.
“It was not a good harbinger, we were all hoping against hope the information was wrong, but of course it was accurate”.
