Prince William has not commented on Meghan Markle’s recent admission that she forgot an important detail regarding her involvement in Omid Scobie’s book, Finding Freedom. But even if this is the case, multiple sources are saying that the future king must be thrilled that Markle was forced to apologize to the court.
In recent years, there have been claims that Prince William and Markle disliked each other. And Prince Harry was forced to choose sides between his older brother and his wife. The Duke of Sussex has sided with Markle through it all, and this is, reportedly, one of the reasons why his relationship with Prince William became estranged.
Prince William Asked Jason Knauf To Come Clean About Meghan Markle
New Idea, in its Nov. 29 issue, claimed that Prince William was indeed involved in busting Markle’s lies. After all, Jason Knauf, who is one of his staff, was the one that outed the Duchess of Sussex.
“At some point, Jason must have got the OK from William to provide a witness statement, given it would impact the duke’s brother and his sister-in-law. William is very involved with the running of his foundation and has been close with Jason for years. It’s no secret there’s no love lost between William and Meghan, and he and Harry have been on the outs for years, so a small part of him must be happy that the truth is finally coming out,” the unnamed source said.
Following Markle’s apology to the court, another source claimed that Prince Harry’s wife could be charged with perjury. In Britain, this reportedly carries a seven-year jail sentence.
However, another source told The Telegraph that it’s unlikely for the Duchess of Sussex to be charged.
“It’s unlikely that the court will regard this as perjury because judges bend over backward not to call people liars. But if the judges looking at this case decide that what the duchess has now admitted is a critical issue to the case, it’s entirely possible that they will order a new hearing with a different judge,” the source said.
Meghan Markle Accused Of Lying During Oprah Winfrey Interview
After Markle’s recent admission that she forgot her involvement in Finding Freedom, some of her critics quickly jumped at the possibility that she also lied during her interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
The Duchess of Sussex previously accused a member of the royal family of being racist. But when Winfrey asked her to name names, she and Prince Harry refused to out the royal in question.
Prince William later told reporters that they are not a racist family even though he didn’t directly respond to Markle and Prince Harry’s allegations.
However, this isn’t all. During the same interview, Markle revealed that she and Prince Harry tied the knot days before May 19, which is the day of their royal wedding.
The Suits alum giddily told Winfrey that the Archbishop of Canterbury visited them at home in the United Kingdom three days before May 19, and Justin Welby married the couple in their backyard.
But during an interview with La Repubblica, Welby denied Markle’s claims.
“I met the Duke and Duchess of Sussex several times in a private and pastoral setting before the official ceremony on Saturday 19 May 2018. That day was the day of the marriage. If I had signed the certificate on a different day, I would have been committing a serious crime. The marriage was celebrated on 19 May. But I won’t say what occurred in our other meetings,” Welby said.
Body Language Expert Calls Meghan Markle Manipulative
Body language expert Jesus Enrique Rosas also pointed out four key instances wherein Markle dropped clues that she was lying about marrying Prince Harry three days before their royal wedding.
At one point, Markle touched her nose, and then she also blinked for a few seconds before raising her eyebrows and placing her palm open and facing up. Doing these four things consecutively suggest that a person could be lying.
Rosas also accused the Duchess of Sussex of using the double-binding strategy to manipulate other people. This strategy reportedly involves a person thinking of two different scenarios before making a single claim.
“One, the archbishop does not make any statement disproving her. And two, he disproves what she said as false. In [the first] scenario, she managed to reinforce that aura of being special, of being a rebel that does not abide by the monarchy’s customs and rules,” Rosas said via Cheat Sheet.
As of late, all the allegations about Markle lying are just based on an individual’s observation and assumption, and Prince William doesn’t have anything to do with it.
