Meghan Markle’s royal fairytale is going better than anyone expected. The Suits star just spent Christmas with the entire royal family and, according to Prince Harry, had a great time getting to know everyone. While Harry and Markle couldn’t be happier with how things are going, there are some members of the royal family who are already jealous of Markle.
According to Closer Weekly, an inside source revealed that Princess Beatrice and Eugenie can’t believe that Queen Elizabeth accepted Markle into the family so easily. They are so angry that they are willing to do whatever it takes to bring the actress down.
The women apparently felt the same way when Kate Middleton married Prince William and believe their side of the family is being pushed out. Their father reportedly complained to Elizabeth about the situation and thinks that she favors Prince Charles and his children way too much.

“This is nothing new, but now they’re taking their frustrations out on Meghan,” the insider explained. “They didn’t like Kate because they saw her as common, but that’s nothing compared to how horrified they are at Harry marrying an American actress! They’re sniping that their grandmother is letting the family go to the dogs by allowing this.”
Eugenie, of course, has good reason to dislike Markle. She is still friends with Cressida Bonas, one of Harry’s ex-girlfriends, and even introduced the two. Eugenia wanted nothing more than to see Harry and Bonas get together, but Markle destroyed those hopes when she started dating Harry last year.
At the end of the day, there’s really nothing that Eugenie and Beatrice can do about Markle joining the royal family. They are, however, determined to make things hard on the actress and refuse to welcome her with open arms. Given how much Harry and Markle are clearly in love, this really is a shame.
To make things worse, Eugenie and Beatrice are both still waiting to tie the knot and feel as though Harry is beating them down the aisle. Eugenie has been dating Jack Brooksbank for the better part of six years but still hasn’t received a proposal.
Beatrice, on the other hand, broke up with Dave Clarke in 2016, a relationship that lasted ten years without an engagement ring. She, of course, went on to date an advertising executive from America and is getting ready to finally tie the knot.
Although Markle has already made two enemies, This Is Insider reports that she is getting along great with the rest of Harry’s family. In fact, the Suits star spent the Christmas holiday with Harry and his family at Sandringham and had a wonderful time.
Queen Elizabeth even gave Markle a nod in her Christmas Day speech, saying that she is looking forward to embracing new members into the family in 2018. Markle may have gotten on the wrong side of Beatrice and Eugenie, but she clearly made good impression on the Queen, which is really the only thing that counts.
