Meghan Markle reportedly hasn’t been in good graces with the royal family since she first entered it officially back in 2018. And a new report from Page Six claims that Meghan’s reputation in the family has become even more damaged after a poorly-timed social media post.
More specifically, the Suits alum shared an Instagram post that purportedly took attention away from a big announcement from the royal family.
The aforementioned outlet claims that Camilla, Prince Charles’ wife, became enraged when Meghan posted pictures on her account visiting the National Theater on the same day as Camilla’s speech at the Women of the World Festival in London.
The Daily Mirror was the first to report that Camilla had planned her speech for approximately one year, and was “devastated” when the Suits alum cast a shadow over her talk.

Yesterday, The Duchess of Sussex, Royal patron of the National Theatre, visited the Immersive Storytelling Studio in London, where emerging technology like Virtual Reality is being used to develop new forms of emotive storytelling. Recently, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also visited Stanford University where part of their learning journey included a virtual reality presentation that allows the user to experience life through another person’s point of view. The goal of this method of virtual reality is to enable us to better connect and empathise with each other as people, regardless of race, age or nationality.

The insider who spoke with The Daily Mirror claimed it was widely known that Camilla’s speech would be on that day, and it was assumed it would take precedence, however, perhaps Meghan and Harry’s exit from the royal family changed their mind on staying loyal to that idea.
The website went on to say that Meghan “broke a pledge” not to overshadow the royal family member’s speech against domestic abuse. Reportedly, Meghan has done something like this in the past.
In January, Meghan posted on IG which bothered Buckingham Palace, because, at that time, Kate Middleton was in the middle of working on her child welfare campaign.
As it was noted above, Meghan and Harry’s relationship with the rest of the family has been strained for years, however, it came to its conclusion when they announced they were leaving in January of this year. The couple revealed they wanted to step away from their royal duties to work on their financial independence.
Some sources claim their exit was brewing for years, however, Prince Andrew’s Jeffrey Epstein scandal was the straw that broke the camel’s back, and Meghan and Harry finally decided it was time to step away from the royal family and the accompanying image.
