Meghan Markle hollywood

Like a scene from “Downton Abbey,” there was tension from the start between Meghan Markle and the royal staffers. Meghan’s acting career in Hollywood led to the “clash of cultures.” Palace aides didn’t approve of her celebrity past or the lack of respect for the way things should be done.

Meghan’s Hollywood Past Causes Problem

Royal expert Camilla Tominey, who has covered the royal family for decades, said in a new interview with The New Yorker that Meghan’s Hollywood past caused problems with royal staffers from the beginning. Meghan didn’t understand many of the unwritten traditions.  

She explained that aides were “less enamoured of the very qualities that made her irresistible to the press: her showbiz lustre, self-confidence, and feminist habits of assertion.” The Hollywood diva’s attitude did not go over well.

Tominey explained:

“It’s a bit like Downton Abbey – there’s a hierarchy of staff who have been at Buckingham Palace for years and years, to serve Queen and country. And, therefore, for Harry and Meghan to be making demands, there was a bit of below-stairs chatter, particularly with the Duchess, that was, ‘Well, hang on a minute, who do you think you are?'” 

Meghan And Harry Leave Royal Family

As we know, things eventually came to a head when Harry and Meghan announced that they would be stepping down as senior members of the British royal family back in January. Since then, they have moved to Canada and then to Los Angeles, California. Now, they are said to be looking for home in the Hollywood A-list area of Hollywood.

Dickie Arbiter, a former press secretary at Buckingham Palace, talked about how hard this situation has been on Harry’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth.

“It is sad for the Queen—at ninety-three, the last thing she wants to see is her family disappear into the sunset—and it is also a letdown for the British people,” he said. “But the British people are stoic, and they get on with it. And, if that’s what Harry and Meghan want, good luck to them.”

Of Course Meghan Had A Diva Attitude 

Given the way most Hollywood stars behave in the states, it’s really no surprise that Meghan brought her diva attitude with her abroad.

One can’t help but get the feeling that Meghan got exactly what she wanted with her moving back to her hometown of Los Angeles with Harry.

Meghan now gets to have her cake and eat it, too. She gets to be seen as the princess she feels she is. And, she can try to be a celebrity in the A-list world of Hollywood that she always wanted to be.

How’s Harry Faring These Days?

Hopefully Harry realizes what he has gotten himself into. Seems it’s not all he thought it would be…

Harry’s friend Jane Goodall commented on how the Duke is finding life in the states.

The 86-year-old primatologist has ‘been in touch’ with Harry following his move and told Radio Times:

‘I don’t know how his career is going to map out, but, yes, I’ve been in touch – though I think he’s finding life a bit challenging right now.’

Harry and Meghan are both fans of the world-renowned activist who met and held their son Archie last year at Frogmore Cottage.
