It is believed in Royal News today that the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has been warned by a senior adviser that she must ‘come to respect the Queen’.
While it’s not known if she was told directly, a former adviser to Donald Trump, Jason Miller, has spoken out to the press about the current dynamics of the royal family and shared his own views on how certain individuals should respond.
This comes after the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, where Harry and Meghan alleged that a well-known member of the royal family had made a racist remark about their son and questioned Archie’s skin color.
They had moved to California and had resigned from their royal responsibilities a year earlier. Meghan said she had suicidal thoughts while living in the UK.
Now Miller has shared his views on how people in positions of power – especially the British royal family, who are famous worldwide – should behave.
Speak with The sun, he shared that members of the royal family should be encouraged to “take some of” [their] thoughts and ambitions at the door’.
“The number one rule of being a royal is that you don’t respect the queen,” he continued.
When asked about Markle, Miller continued: “I think she should have more respect for the institution of the Royals and I think when you get married in the Royal Family there’s a certain sense of propriety that I think you have. you sign up for having to check some of your thoughts and aspirations at the door.”
“I think if you have the queen, you have to respect the queen,” he concluded.
While it is believed that some form of family feud is underway, there is no confirmation of this, just speculation.
Meghan and Harry are known to have requested their daughter, Lilibet Diana, to meet the Queen in person – they have only met via Zoom at the moment – and to have her christening here in the UK, as did Archie.
Harry’s tell-all memoir, published by Penguin Random House, will be released next year.
During the Oprah interview, an official statement from the Royal Palace simply said that while they regretted the unrest caused, “memories may differ.”
