Meghan Markle news latest – Duchess risks popularity IMPLOSION in America ‘after telling Queen where to stick crown’


MEGHAN Markle is risking her popularity in the US after effectively telling the Queen “where to stick her crown”, a royal expert claims.

When Meghan and Harry fled Britain for Canada and then the US, their popularity was at its peak with millions of Americans taking their side in the emerging royal rift, according to expert Daniela Elser.

But while the Royal-bashing may have scored them points in the early rounds, the “novelty” of having the pair living in LA, Elser says.

“When they landed in Los Angeles in March last year their value as a highly bankable, rare commodity was peaking. Their brand was on the ascendant,” she wrote for News.com.au.

“They’d told the sovereign where she could stick her crown, something Americans have had a penchant for since the War of Independence, and were eager to make a name for themselves in the commercial world.

“They might have been ready and open for business but the nation was not.

“Fast forward to this year and with the US reopening and life returning to normal and something of the novelty value of a real-life Duke and Duchess in Tinseltown’s midst is no longer quite what it once might have been.

  • MEGA STRAIN

    Meghan Markle’s ex-husband Trevor Engelson felt like “something stuck to the bottom of her shoe” as their marriage broke down, it has been reported.

    The producer and talent agent told how his marriage to the Duchess came under strain as the pair were filming in different cities.

    They had started dating in 2004, as Meghan was looking to establish herself as an actor in Hollywood, and tied the knot in Ocho Rios in September 2011.

    But their marriage came under strain as Meghan was filming in Toronto for the hit show Suits while he was based in California – and the pair spent little time together.

    Filing for divorce in August 2013, Meghan citied “irreconcilable differences” – just as her acting career was taking off.

  • MEGHAN MARKLE CATCHES HEAT FOR ‘NOT DOING WORK’ BEFORE BECOMING A ROYAL

    The Netflix series is just one of many various projects Meghan has got involved with this year, after signing a Spotify podcast deal, Archewell Audio as well as signing a contract with the consumer good company, Procter & Gamble.

    After more than 12 months separated from the Royal Family, Meghan and Harry have been criticised for not completing much work from these deals.

    Commentator Caitlin Flanagan said that Meghan “didn’t do the work” while researching what it is required of a Royal before tying the knot with Harry.

    Ms Flanagan claimed: “Part of Meghan’s problem, it turned out, was her naivety about the workings of the Royal Family, which she had assumed would be similar to the workings of celebrity culture.”

    Royal commentator Adam Helliker said: “Considering Harry gave up so much, the actual amount of stuff the removal lorry took was quite small.

    “There was only one small load as they were starting afresh.

    “Would there have been room in that lorry for the bench? I think so.”
