Meghan Markle has been consistently pitted against Kate Middleton. Though the two duchesses were both considered commoners prior to their wedding to Prince Harry and Prince William, many royal followers noticed that Meghan and Kate are different from each other.
During her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021, Meghan Markle revealed that she and Kate Middleton had a feud just days before her wedding with Prince Harry in 2018. The Duchess of Sussex said Prince William’s wife got upset after learning that Princess Charlotte’s gown did not fit her and it made Meghan cry.
Recently, Meghan Markle’s previous claim that she had limited knowledge about the royal family growing up was debunked after it was found that she wrote about the Cambridge couple’s wedding in a blog post. Keep on reading to know more details.
Meghan Markle Didn’t Know Much About The Royal Family?
During a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle was asked about her knowledge of the royal family before she officially tied the knot with Prince Harry.
The wife of Prince Harry, as per Express UK, retorted:
“I would say I went into it naively because I didn’t grow up knowing much about the Royal Family. It wasn’t part of something that was part of the conversation at home. It wasn’t something that we followed.”
Meghan Markle also claimed she did not know how to curtsy and admitted she did not fully understand what the job was. However, a throwback post published in the Duchess of Sussex’s now-defunct blog “The Tig” showed that the former Suits actress did have some knowledge of the royal family.
The better half of Prince Harry tackled “grown women’s” interest in being princesses and referred to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011. In the blog post that Meghan Markle published in 2014, she stated:
“Little girls dream of being princesses. I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power. For those of you unfamiliar with the Eighties cartoon reference, She-Ra is the twin sister of He-Man, and a sword-wielding royal rebel known for her strength. We’re definitely not talking about Cinderella here. Grown women seem to retain this childhood fantasy. Just look at the pomp and circumstance surrounding the royal wedding and endless conversation about Princess Kate.”
Most, if not all, royal fans can recall that Meghan Markle decided to close “The Tig” in April 2017 before she announced her engagement to Prince Harry. New reports, however, suggested that the Duchess of Sussex might do a relaunch of the blog site after U.S. lawyer Marjorie Witter Norman filed an application to trademark the name “The Tig” in July 2021.
The paper cited publicly available legal records, which show an application by Frim Fram Inc. It is claimed to be a holding company linked to Andrew Meyer, who is the business manager of Meghan Markle.
Thomas Markle Jr. Claims ‘Money Changed’ Meghan Markle
Meanwhile, Thomas Markle Jr. stated that “money changed” his half-sister and Meghan Markle’s marriage to Prince Harry is “next on the chopping board.” The 55-year-old told his friends on Australia’s Celebrity Big Brother that the ex-actress was “cold” to her ex-husband and now Harry is next.
Talking to his housemates, Thomas Markle Jr. admitted that he and Meghan Markle used to be close to each other. However, “money changed her” after moving to Canada for work.
"That's the big thing now, what happened to her? No one can figure it out. Money changed her I guess and fame went to her head really bad."
Thomas Markle Jr. also said he has “no idea” how Meghan Markle bagged a royal husband, adding he believes Prince Harry is “next on the chopping board.” He even warned that his half-sister was “cold” after she sent her ex-husband’s wedding ring back to him in the post.

"Trevor took care of her, she was adored by him, and she walked all over him and dumped him. That fast. After being married, she sent the ring back in the mail. Is that cold or what? But, you know, Harry's next. Harry's on the chopping board next. The only difference between now and then is in all the photos prior to that, he had a smile on his face. All the ones after, he doesn't."
The latest tirades of Thomas Markle Jr. against his half-sister came after he said that Meghan Markle only became a royal because their dad, Thomas Markle Sr., paid for her education. Thomas Jr. was not invited to Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry in 2018, which took place at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
