Prince Harry Meghan Markle was the one who discovered it “difficult to accept”An expert claims that the royal ‘pecking orders’ were followed before they moved to California to begin a new life.
According to some, they were removed from their positions as senior royal family members because of their influence in The Firm. This was not due to their popularity.
Andrew Morton says they were not the only ones who felt this way.
While speaking to Mr Morton (the famous author of 1992 bestseller “Diana: Her True Story”), he made an intriguing comparison between the Sussexes, Princess Margaret, Countess Snowdon, and Lord Snowdon. Express.co.uk.
Margaret, Queen Elizabeth II’s sister, was a ‘black sheep” in The Firm because of her wild partying and scandalous engagement with Peter Townsend in the 1950s and 60s. She eventually married Antony Armstrong-Jones.
Before divorcing in 1978, the royal couple had a son, David and a girl, Sarah.
Mister Morton said that Harry and Meghan are being courted by celebrities.
“I mean, thousands of people turned out to see them [in New York, during their visit in September].
“They are very popular, but they had to accept the fact that it wasn’t about popularity in the Royal Family. It’s all about the position.
He claimed they didn’t “get the funding they wanted”Oder “the support they wanted”The Firm, because they were both “lower down the totem pole”.
He also added: “It’s exactly the same as what happened with Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon.
“These were the Swinging Sixties’ most glamorous faces, but they were actually lower-ranking members of the Royal Family… the Queen Mother and Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Prince Charles, Princess Anne… all were part of the main branch, unlike Margaret Snowdon and Snowdon.
“It’s a remarkable parallel that Meghan and Harry are the same way.”
Gertrude Daly (royal podcaster and commentator) claimed last week that the Sussexes will only change their plans in the United States, and then return to the UK if someone dies in the Royal Family.
