‘Meghan came to the UK to be a star,’ but ‘wasn’t in the US.’
MEGHAN Markle came to the UK “to be a star” on the red carpet, but in the US, she “wasn’t much more than a starlet,” according to an author.
The Duchess of Sussex, 40, is best known for her role as Rachel Zane in the American TV legal drama Suits, which she played for seven seasons.
She also appeared in a number of small roles on television shows such as CSI: NY and in films such as Get Him to the Greek.
She moved to the United Kingdom in 2017, following her engagement to Prince Harry, 37.
“Meghan came to the UK imagining she’d be the star of the red carpet, even though she wasn’t much more than a starlet in America,” Barbara Taylor Bradford, author of A Woman Of Substance, told The Daily Mail’s Eden Confidential: ”
“What she didn’t realize is that the red carpet already has a shining star, someone who’s been there for 70 years.”
She’s known as the Queen.”
Barbara’s book was first published in 1979 and has since gone on to sell over 30 million copies around the world.
With her 40th birthday approaching this weekend, the Duchess of Cambridge will be missing out on an important Royal tradition.
The bells of Westminster Abbey ring on royal birthdays as a unique way to mark the occasion.
However, due to the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic, the bells of Westminster Abbey haven’t rung for a royal birthday since April 2020.
The decision was discussed with Buckingham Palace, according to a Westminster Abbey spokesperson who spoke to 9honey in Australia.
“Traditionally, the bells have been rung to commemorate the birthdays of senior members of the Royal Family,” they added.
“The bells will now ring only for the birthdays of HM The Queen and HRH The Prince of Wales, due to the financial challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and in consultation with Buckingham Palace.”
