Meghan Markle is a one-off in Windsor clan
THE ROYAL Wedding is long over and one notices some press features referring to the former Meghan Markle which can only be described as snide.
My reaction: give the girl a break. It was not she who drenched the whole affair with the most glutinous sycophancy. That too was the media. I cannot recall a royal bride ever who did not come from a pretty sheltered or privileged background.
The Duchess of Cambridge was Kate Middleton, raised in a country manor of upper middle class parentage. Princess Diana was the daughter of Earl Spencer, raised in Althorp stately home.
And so on back to Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the Queen Mother. Meghan Markle alone has known hard times, poverty and struggle making a career in TV acting. In that she is truly a “first”.
