  • Are the 'diva' rumours true?

    Meghan Markle is one of the most famous women in the world. Not only was she the most Googled person of 2018, but she has also been busy attending royal engagements, charity events and empowering women with her moving speeches.

    While her pregnancy has garnered a lot of media attention, so has her work. She has had secret meetings with Michelle Obama to discuss the pressures of being in the public eye, and the Queen has reportedly given Meghan a new job as patron of the National Theatre, deemed a ‘natural fit’ for the former actress.

    However, the Duchess of Sussex has also been victim to bad press. In a short space of time, her personal assistant quit (just six months after her wedding to Prince Harry), and there were reports that she was ‘feuding’ with Kate Middleton.

    Buckingham Palace quickly quashed the rumours, with the Mirror confirming that they denied the claims, and this is how Meghan reacted to the negative headlines.

    But the stories didn’t stop. Late last year there were reports that those inside Kensington Palace had nicknamed Meghan ‘Duchess Difficult’, and others allegedly called her ‘Hurricane Meghan’ because she reportedly sends her staff ‘six or seven texts a day’, apparently starting as early as 5am.

    However, a royal insider told that the rumours are ‘absolutely untrue’, and that the staff are ‘excited by her ideas and enthusiasm.’

    The source continued that Meghan ‘is anxious to learn about royal protocol and takes her new duties very seriously.’ They stated that she is ‘a quick learner, receptive to the courtiers who have been providing her guidance and helping her adapt to her new life as a member of the royal family.’

    So it sounds like Meghan is a perfectly fine employer. And does she care about the negative reports? Probs not.

    Thank u, next.
