Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had a sit-down interview after announcing their engagement in 2017.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shocked the world upon publicizing their relationship. They immediately became the talk of the town and have since remained as one in recent months.
While some royal fans continue to share their support and adoration for the couple, there are several individuals who have other things to say about the Sussexes. One political insider even jotted down her thoughts in a “diary” back when the couple announced their engagement, according to the Daily Express.
Based on her notes, Sasha Swire wrote that the former actress would “eat Prince Harry for breakfast.” This reportedly came after she witnessed the pair’s official interview back in 2017.
Meghan Markle was “elbowing” Prince Harry out
Sasha Swire, who is Hugo Swire’s wife, recently released a memoir titled, Diary of an MP’s Wife. Writing in her piece, she reflected and described how she felt after watching Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s 2017 interview.
She said that it was like watching an episode of Netflix’s The Crown. She believed that “there will be trouble ahead” as the former actress was “eating the redhead for breakfast.”
The English author continued that the Duchess of Sussex was “almost elbowing” her then-fiancé out of the shot. The interview also showed that the royal-born Prince is “not as clever as” Meghan, Swire added.

She “misjudged” the role of a royal
Amid all the assertions, though, another insider had a different perspective about the matter. Speaking to Insider, Chloe Savage, who helped design Meghan Markle’s wedding dress, stated that the Duchess “misjudged” the royal role. She explained that Prince Harry’s wife was not “adequately prepared” to become an official member of the British Royal Family.
The professional embroiderer, then, compared the former actress to Kate Middleton. She asserted that, unlike Meghan, the Duchess of Cambridge had time to prepare before she became a working royal.
As the public would recall, the Cambridge couple dated for nearly a decade before tying the knot. This gave the future Queen Consort time to “adapt and adjust” for her role in the British Monarchy.
But, in the case of the Sussexes, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle only dated for a year before announcing their engagement. They met on a blind date in 2016 and decided to get married in 2017. The Duchess “dived in headfirst,” Savage said, adding that they likely found the “whole thing very difficult.”
