Meghan Markle latest news – Duchess ‘shocked at Royal status not being as high as Kate preventing her living in palaces’


MEGHAN Markle completely misread her royal status and felt “shunted off” by not living in Kensington Palace, it has been claimed.

The Duchess of Sussex was “drawn in” by the fantasy of royal life after marrying Prince Harry – but was completely unready for the significantly less glam reality, author Tom Quinn told the Pod Save the Queen podcast.

She reportedly felt “disappointed” at having to live in a “little” Frogmore Cottage rather than the considerably grander Kensington Palace where Prince William and Kate Middleton are raising their children.

But it was actually Nottingham Cottage, Harry and Meghan’s first UK home, which sits inside the grounds of Kensington Palace, that first hammered home the reality of Meghan as a second-tier royal, Quinn claimed.

“I think that actually, she wasn’t too keen on that,” he said.

“It seemed like they were being shunted off to a little prefab in the grounds,” Quinn added.
