The Royal Family Find Meghan Markle 'Difficult And Demanding' [Report]
It has been quite an eventful few weeks for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, thanks to a baby announcement , extensive travel down under, a staff member resigning, and a plan to move out of Kensington Palace. Could some of this be happening because Markle is “difficult and demanding?”
According to royal correspondent Richard Palmer, Markle is a snob, and her personal assistant resigned because of her alleged diva demands. Palmer dished all of the juicy details on Twitter, writing that the new royal is not only responsible for the staff change, but also for the move to Frogmore Cottage at Windsor Castle.
“The crazies on Twitter won’t like it, but it is clear that Meghan is regarded as difficult and demanding by some in the family and on the staff,” Palmer wrote. “The story behind Harry and Meghan’s move to Frogmore Cottage? Harry and Meghan spreading their wings. No big fallout, but Kate and Meghan not close. No royal properties available in London apparently.”
Palmer also revealed that the Queen’s cousin, the Duke of Gloucester and his wife, Birgitte, agreed to move out of Apartment 1 at Kensington Palace to make room for Harry and Meghan, but the renovations could take months, and it wouldn’t be ready in time for the birth of their baby.
However, Radar Online reports that the newlyweds didn’t want to live next door to Prince William and Kate Middleton because tensions have started to arise between the brothers. A royal insider claimed that Kate and Meghan are “very different people,” and they don’t really get along.
Since they got married in May, the expectation was that Harry and Meghan would live in Apartment 1 at Kensington Palace, a 21-room residence next to William and Kate’s four-story spread that they share with Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
But, Harry and Meghan have opted for a home 25 miles away at the Queen’s Windsor Estate, and some sources claim it is because Harry wants to escape the “goldfish bowl of royal life,” and raise his child away from the spotlight. Princess Eugenie grew up on the Windsor grounds, and she convinced Harry and Meghan that it was a great place for a peaceful childhood.
Whatever the actual reason is for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex deciding to move out of the palace, they will be moving to the 20-room Frogmore House and will give their child as normal of an upbringing as possible.
The house is a gift from the Queen, and it is currently five separate apartments with ten bedrooms, so it will require extensive renovation before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can move in. They are hoping to move before the birth of their baby next spring.
