In the months since Meghan Markle officially joined the British royal family, she has seen many of her royal staffers quit amidst rumors that she is difficult to work with. Now, rumors are coming in suggesting that Meghan has been given the nickname “Me-Gain” by staffers at Kensington Palace, much to her husband Prince Harry’s dismay.

Fox News reported that David Jenkins, the senior editor at the British magazine Tatler, claimed that a source who “has connections with Kensington Palace” said that Meghan was “trouble.” Jenkins did have some sympathy for Meghan, however, saying that she’s “damned if she does, and she’s damned if she doesn’t.”

Jenkins went on to compare the harsh media coverage that Meghan has received to that of Sarah Ferguson, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew.

“When she married Prince Andrew, the Queen’s second son, she, like Meghan, was heralded as a breath of fresh air, a fun-filled redhead who’d blow the cobwebs off the monarchy. In the end, Lord Charteris of Amisfield, one-time Private Secretary to the Queen, declared, ‘She is vulgar, vulgar, vulgar, and that is that,'” Jenkins stated, going on to say that Meghan has “seen nothing like that.”

Former Kensington Palace press secretary Dickie Arbiter responded to Jenkins’ article by saying that Prince Harry “would be angry that something like this is coming out.”

“He will be angry, he will be upset, he will want to keep his head down and he will want to protect Meghan,” Arbiter said.

It has previously been reported that Harry is especially desperate to protect Meghan from media attacks because he still feels guilt over not being able to protect his late mother Princess Diana from the press.

While there has indeed been a lot of turnover in Meghan’s staff since she became a royal, it’s important to remember that this has all been quite an adjustment for her. It’s important to give Meghan the space and time that she needs to find the right staff for her, and we hope that the media allows her to do so with less attacks going forward.
