Is there such a thing as being “too American” to fit in? That’s what a lot of critics can’t help but wonder as one viscountness claims that California-born Meghan Markle simply didn’t fit in with the rest of the British Royal Family because of her Americanism. Here’s what she has to say.
Viscountness Julie Montagu, who was born in Illinois but moved to the UK 16 years ago when she married Luke Timothy Charles Montagu, told the Channel 5 documentary “Meghan at 40: The Climb to Power,” that the Duchess of Sussex had a very hard time letting go of her American ideas and the “American dream” while she and Prince Harry were still full-time working members of the royal family.
Meghan Markle Was ‘Too American’ To Fit In With The British Royal Family
That in itself might have been the reason why Meghan was struggling behind the scenes.
“You can’t really be anything you want to be or do anything you want to do or say anything you want to say,” the Viscountess explained. “Your duty is to the Queen and that’s very difficult for someone like Meghan. To switch off that American dream off and accept ‘now you have to do what we say’ is difficult. It’s difficult to have love and duty work simultaneously and together and that’s what Harry and Meghan wanted in [negotiations] with the Queen, this synergy, that they can make work, but the Queen said no.”
The Viscountness also suggested that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did their interview with Oprah Winfrey because perhaps they were looking for an apology from the royal family – which of course, never happened.
“I think she felt it was an opportunity for her to not only share it with the world, but she hoped the royal family was actually listening,” Lady Julie added. “It’s difficult to pinpoint why she did it, but I think it’s clear they were angry.”
