Meghan Markle was unable to ‘turn off the American dream,’ according to the American-born Viscountess.
According to a US-born viscountess, Meghan Markle couldn’t “turn off the American dream.”
Julie Montagu, who was born in Illinois but married into the British aristocracy and became Viscountess Hinchingbrooke, claimed that the Duchess of Sussex found royal duties “extremely tough.” Meghan made the remarks in the documentary Meghan at 40: The Climb to Power, which will premiere on Channel 5 on Saturday.
“You can’t really be who you want to be, do what you want to do, or say what you want to say,” Julie explained.
“Your responsibility is to the Queen, and for someone like Meghan, that is quite tough.
“It’s difficult to turn off the American dream and accept that ‘now you have to do what we say.’
“Having love and responsibility operate simultaneously and together is tough, and that is what Harry and Meghan desired in negotiations with the Queen, this synergy, that they could make work, but the Queen said no.”
According to royal analysts in the documentary, Meghan and Prince Harry may come to regret their controversial Oprah Winfrey appearance.
“I think Meghan’s problem was that she was angry, she was upset,” royal author Tom Quinn stated.
“I believe she believed she could shake up the Royal Family and they would love it, and she would do things Meghan’s way.
“When that didn’t happen and she ran across what she perceived as reactionary forces, it enraged her so much that the interview was her only chance, I believe, to exact her wrath and present the case as she saw it.
“However, I believe she will eventually believe I should not have burned so many bridges.”
“Some people might wonder whether Meghan would live to regret all of the admissions in the Oprah interview,” royal critic Ashley Pearson remarked.
“Oprah herself afterwards stated that she was astonished Meghan uttered some of the things she did.”
“Don’t forget that her mother Doria is the only member of her family she sees,” royal analyst Emily Andrews remarked.
“She has never met any of her father’s relatives, and Archie and Lilibet will never meet any of their cousins.
“I believe she will come to regret being so public with that Oprah interview because it will be archived for posterity.”
