Queen Elizabeth feared this about Meghan Markle, royal biographer claims
Queen Elizabeth II is allegedly aware of Meghan Markle being political and she has some fears about the duchess, according to a royal biographer.
Queen Elizabeth II has maintained a warm relationship with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The royal couple has nothing but praises when it comes to Queen and Prince Philip in their previous interviews.
However, royal author Robert Jobson has more to say about the Queen and Duchess of Sussex. Royal biographer, Robert Jobson, author of Harry’s War: The True Story of the Soldier Prince weighed in on the Queen’s relationship with the Sussexes.
According to him, Her Majesty had known about Markle’s “political views and ambition.” The Queen was aware that Markle’s political side could be “embarrassing” for the royal family.
“This is what the Queen feared because now she’s free to say whatever she likes,” Jobson said per Express. “She’ll now start talking about her political views and ambitions. And she might stir them up which then becomes embarrassing.”
Jobson added that the royals won’t say anything, but they had always known what Markle would do. The biographer said Markle had always been political since she was 7 when she wrote letters to Hillary Clinton.
While Jobson found Markle to be political, he believed it wasn’t the case for Prince Harry. According to him, the Duke of the Sussex as a “Prince of the Realm” could never get involved in political matters.
Jobson believed that things would be different if Prince Harry was doing what his wife did. Also, Prince Harry is a British citizen and he is bound up by everything.
Jobson made the comment after Markle wrote a letter asking Congress to give parents paid leave.
Meanwhile, royal biographer Angela Levin, author of Harry a Biography mocked Markle. According to her, there is already a policy giving parents leave, but the concern is how long the family can use it.
For Levin, Markle jumped on the bandwagon, so she could allegedly claim that her letter made a huge impact on the matter. The author also accused Markle of abusing her royal status. Levin felt that way after Markle used the Duke and Duchess of Sussex heading in her letter.
Levin said she is using her British royal status to tell another government what to do. Markle signing her letter with her peerage title also raised eyebrows. Several netizens urged the Queen to strip her and Prince Harry of all their royal titles.
Since the royal couple is no longer working royals, they should air their opinions as private individuals and not royals.
