Meghan Markle tone deaf? Royal aides call out duchess for being insensitive

Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle used to speak up about her personal struggles as low-key as possible. However, it did not remove the fact that she sounded sensitive.

A new book claimed that Meghan Markle let out insensitive comments about her struggles before stepping down as a senior royal.

Last year, Meghan openly tackled the hardships she faced as a royal wife and mother to ITV’s Tom Bradby.

The trip was supposed to focus on charities and groups established in the developing country. But the duchess’ story outshined everything, and she even used it as her own outlet.

What the book said about Meghan

Robert Lacey’s book Battle of Brothers: William, Harry, and the Inside Story of a Family in Tumult detailed what happened in one of the trips of the Sussexes. It also unveiled how the royal palace aides reacted over her alleged tone-deaf comments.

Per the book, the palace aides thought she was insensitive, given the fact that she visited a country whose people are also facing realities.

“But then to start emoting against the backdrop of one of the most blighted corners of the planet to complain about the distressing problems you are experiencing adjusting to life inside a palace — Meghan’s litany of grievance had suggested indifference bordering on contempt for the true concerns of the human beings among whom she had been smiling,” the book says.

Apart from the outpouring of discontentment, the palace aides thoughts about her changed. Per Lacey, her tone-deafness only revealed how self-indulgent her self-pity truly looks like.

Furthermore, Lacey claimed that even Queen Elizabeth II’s private secretary, Sir Edward Young, unquestionably viewed it that way, as well.

What Meghan said

In 2019, Meghan surprised everyone when she bravely spoke about her tough time on National TV.

According to Meghan, she did not know what she led herself to when she married Prince Harry in May 2018.

Moreover, she also said that the media’s high level of negative comments brought her a hard life.

What shocked the people the most was that Meghan went on to say that she also found her royal life as something challenging. She pointed out that it got worse during her pregnancy with Archie.

“Thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay,” she told Bradby, seemingly throwing shades to the royal family.

Currently, Prince Harry and Meghan started living their new lives in the U.S.
