A former aide to Princess Diana says that Meghan Markle’s ‘baby shower’ which was billed by the palace to be a private, “quiet girls trip” turned out to be a gaudy over-the-top affair with Meghan even checking into a $75,000-a-night suite at NYC’s The Mark Hotel.
Meghan, 37, even dined at the Lauduree Bakery and ate at Ralph Lauren’s Polo Bar restaurant with friends. Unlike other royals, Meghan has made no effort to use secret entrances and has walked around in the open, for the public and paparazzi attention. Patrick Jephson, Princess Diana’s long-time secretary says: “This is a clear sign that Meghan thinks that being a royal Duchess is about celebrity — not royalty.”
He continued to say that Diana would have never behaved in the ways Meghan is, adding: “If you are royal and you want to be private, there are a million ways you can be. Diana always stayed at The Carlyle in New York, which prides itself on its discretion for its famous guests. The fact that Meghan allowed this to become a media circus is very revealing. Nobody objects to Meghan having time with friends . . . [but] dignity and privacy are consistent with her primary role as a British duchess. That fact that her friends seem to fail to understand this is deeply worrying for her future royal career. All the things that Meghan could have done privately or discreetly, she failed to do . . . The Mark doesn’t have a [garage], but The Carlyle nearby does — or Meghan and her famous friends could have rented a beautiful private home with underground parking for true privacy.” Let us know: DO YOU THINK MEGHAN IS A DISRESPECTFUL DUCHESS? DO YOU THINK SHE COULD BE A LITTLE MORE LOW-KEY?
