‘Meghan is breaking the rules’: Royal biographer claims the Duchess faces a greater public backlash than ‘very quiet’ Kate because she’s determined to modernise the monarchy

  • Royal biographer Claudia Joseph spoke on BBC Victoria Derbyshire programme
  • The expert revealed that the public are pleased Meghan is ‘modernising’ family
  • However she also warned that royalists may be worried she’s moving too fast
  • Explained Kate received less of a public backlash due to her ‘quiet nature’ 

A royal expert has revealed that the Duchess of Sussex is facing something of a public backlash because she’s putting herself out on a limb by trying to modernise the monarchy. 

Royal biographer Claudia Joseph appeared on the Victoria Derbyshire programme on BBC Two to discuss the public reaction to the pregnant Duchess, and claimed that Kate Middleton received less of a backlash when she joined the royal family due to her ‘quiet nature’.

Speaking alongside fashion designer Amal Fashanu and journalism professor Suzanneh Franks, the panel dissected just why Meghan, 37, is subject to negative rumours that she’s been rude to staff and cut off friends who are no longer useful. 

While Amal argued that her race and background have seen her being treated differently to Kate, Suzanneh claimed that her more vigorous approach to the role of Duchess is the reason she’s courted more controversy.

Agreeing with Suzanneh, biographer Claudia said: ‘The reality is that Kate is a very different person. 

‘She’s very quiet, she’s not trying to change the Royal family, she’s not trying to do anything differently, she’s like William.

‘She doesn’t like the publicity, she doesn’t like to be in the public eye. She has been in the press, there have been lots of stories about her over time.

‘Not so quickly perhaps, but she’s not breaking the rules in the same way as Meghan.

‘The reality is people admire Meghan because she’s trying to bring the Royal family into the 21st century.’

Claudia claimed that Kate Middleton received less of a backlash when she joined the royal family due to her ‘quiet and less involved nature’, adding: she’s not trying to change the Royal family, she’s not trying to do anything differently, she’s like William

Meghan, seen in June with the Queen, has long been vocal of her stance on feminism, politics and human rights, as well as reportedly being responsible for Harry skipping the royal annual Christmas shoot, due to the duchess being an avid animal lover

Meghan has long been vocal of her stance on feminism, politics and human rights, as well as reportedly being responsible for Harry skipping the royal annual Christmas shoot, due to the duchess being an avid animal lover.

Last month it was revealed Harry and Meghan would be moving out of their Kensington Palace cottage to the grounds of Windsor, to avoid their first child- due in spring 2019, growing up ‘in a goldfish bowl’.

However behind the scenes reports claimed the move could be due to a rift between the Cambridges and the Sussexes, who are due to join the other senior royals to spend Christmas with the Queen at her Sandringham country residence in eastern England next week.

Claudia claimed that Meghan’s more vigorous approach to the role of duchess is the reason she has courted more controversy than ‘quiet’ Kate who doesn’t appear to get as involved

Additionally Meghan has had to endure regular public outbursts from her half sister Samantha Markle, and her father Thomas.  

On Monday, Thomas directly appealed on television to Queen Elizabeth to intercede and end his estrangement from his daughter whom he has not seen since he missed her wedding in May to Harry, Elizabeth’s grandson. 

And while Meghan has maintained a dignified silence amid his regular demands, experts have claimed she may have an easier life if she does the same when it comes to royal matters.

At the beginning of the month Tom Bower, unauthorised biographer of Prince Charles, spoke out about her passionate nature, appearing on Good Morning Britain.

Comparing her to Harry’s late mother, he claimed: ‘The problem is in my view that she is trying to be Diana.

‘She’s trying to adopt the new role, and the tragedy of the story is it’ll end in the same way unless someone steps in from the Palace and says “look this is the way it’s done here”.’

On Monday Thomas Markle, who hasn’t spoken to Meghan since he missed her wedding in May this year, once again demanded she get in touch with him- appealing directly to the Queen
