When the Duchess of Sussex joined the monarchy, Tina Brown, author of the new book The Palace Papers, said she had a “fundamental sense of misunderstanding.”
“She didn’t like it at all,” Ms Brown said of Meghan and Prince Harry’s 2018 tour of Australia on ITV’s Lorraine show.
“For her, the whole representational job of suppressing your own views while representing the monarchy was anathema.”
“It wasn’t how she saw her role or the world; she didn’t see the point, and while she was a huge success, it wasn’t something she wanted to do.”
“I believe that was her fundamental misunderstanding of what would happen when she became a member of the Royal Family.
“She saw the palaces and Diana as this global humanitarian superstar, but she forgot that Diana worked like a dog within the Royal Family for 16 or 17 years, doing a lot of mundane tasks.”
“It was the charisma she brought to the job that made her so exceptional.”
