Meghan Markle has faced plenty of rumors about her bad behavior towards staff, and one royal expert believes there may be some truth behind the talk. Robert Johnson, who has reported on the royal family for years, claims that Markle earned the nickname “Duchess Difficult” for a good reason.
“I think that most of the stories that have been written about them are probably true otherwise Kensington Palace would have come down on them like a ton of bricks,” Johnson shared.

Their Royal Highnesses heard more about their latest projects and the transformational impact they have had on the local community.

According to Daily Mail, Johnson also believes that the rumors surrounding Markle’s alleged feud with Kate Middleton are probably based on fact. Johnson has no idea what the two have been fighting about, but he believes there is some truth to the rumors.
A lot of Markle’s difficult behavior, meanwhile, is related to her wedding with Prince Harry last spring. Sources claim that the Duchess of Sussex has multiple arguments with members of the royal family, mostly in connection to the style of tiara she wanted to wear during the wedding.
While Markle may have raised a fuss about her big day, Johnson also believes Harry is at fault for her bad reputation.
The royal expert argues that Harry has been too defensive and protective of Markle over the past year. As far as Johnson is concerned, this has helped alienated Markle and as hurt her relationship with staff members and members of the royal family.

Their Royal Highnesses see more of the vibrant Moroccan culture – joining a cooking demonstration with Chef Moha and children, who were cooking traditional dishes. Many of the children are from underprivileged backgrounds, and are part of a scheme to help open up the restaurant industry to young people. Children were also making Cherine Mallah’s Moroccan Pancakes from ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook’ – the charity cookbook, supported by The Duchess, which celebrates the power of cooking to bring communities together. #RoyalVisitMorocco #CookTogether. 📷image 2 PA / image 1 +3 @kensingtonroyal
When it comes to her nickname, Markle allegedly earned the moniker after texting her staff early in the morning. She has also experienced an unusually high turnover rate for the royals, which has only added to her bad reputation.
Despite all the rumors, some sources say that staff members inside Kensington Palace love working with the former actress. Until Markle addresses the rumors head on, it is difficult to tell if the rumors are true or not.
Meghan Markle is currently getting ready to give birth to her first child with Prince Harry. The former Suits star is scheduled to have the baby sometime in April.
