MEGHAN Markle is “well-liked” according to a royal source close to the pregnant duchess, who has rubbished reports the 37-year-old is seen as “difficult” and “fussy” by her staff after three of her aides quit six months after the American married into the royal family.
Despite claims of shaking up Kensington Palace with 5am emails, a royal source has sensationally claimed Meghan is liked and that her staff are “excited by her enthusiasm”. An unnamed insider told Elle.com reports about the Duchess of Sussex having an unsavoury management style are “absolutely untrue”. The source said: “She’s actually well-liked by her staff, and people are excited by her ideas and enthusiasm.” The source also said the former Suits actress is “anxious to learn about royal protocol and takes her new duties very seriously”.
The insider also said the wife of Prince Harry is a “quick learner” and “happy to take guidance” to adapt to her new life as a member of the royal family.
The source also said Meghan is a “different kind of boss than Kate”.
The news follows reports over the festive period that the rift between Meghan and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, were “overblown”.
Another source told the same publication: “They have enormous respect for each other and are both devoted to representing Her Majesty in the humanitarian and charitable work they do.”
But another report revealed today tells a completely different story.
Another insider claimed Meghan finds royal life “stressful” and as result, Harry is feeling “frustrated”.
The source said: “Meghan has so much on her plate, between being pregnant and dealing with the public backlash and she’s finding the whole situation incredibly stressful.”
Referring to the Duke of Sussex, the source said he was “very frustrated with how little can be done” and that “keeping Meghan away from the negativity and harm has been hard for him. It’s been his purpose in their relationship to keep her away from the negativity”.
Rumours of a royal rift went into overdrive when Meghan and Harry announced they were moving out of the Kensington Palace home they shared with Kate and William, and into Frogmore Cottage located 25 miles away.
This came after reports Kate had been left “in tears” after her daughter was fitted for her bridesmaid dress for Meghan’s wedding in May.
Prince Harry was said to have been angered with brother William for “not rolling out the red carpet” for Meghan.
Meghan was also reported to have angered the Queen after she asked for air fresheners to rid St George’s Chapel of an apparent musky smell before her wedding, and demanded the emerald tiara Princess Eugenie had secured for her own wedding at the same venue last October.Three of Meghan and Harry’s aides have quit their roles months into having Meghan as their boss.
