MICHELLE MOTH­ERS TROU­BLED ME­GAN!

Preg­nant new­ly­wed begs idol for help as fairy tale ex­plodes

Globe - - BREAKING NEWS -

PREG­NANT and de­tested by her royal in-laws, Prince Harry’s pushy Amer­i­can bride, Meghan, is des­per­ately beg­ging for help from her idol — Michelle Obama!

The diva duchess sneaked out of Kens­ing­ton Palace — leav­ing her pro­tec­tion squad fum­ing — for a se­cret meet­ing with the for­mer first lady dur­ing Michelle’s Dec. 3 stop in Bri­tain to pro­mote her best-sell­ing book, Be­com­ing.

Now, Meghan’s mak­ing clan­des­tine mid­night phone calls to her “sec­ond mother Michelle,” a high-level royal aide tells GLOBE ex­clu­sively, though the palace of­fi­cially de­nies any re­la­tion­ship and talk there’s trou­ble in Bri­tain’s rul­ing fam­ily.

“Meghan feels the world has turned against her, and she poured her heart out to Mrs. Obama,” says the aide.

“She thought mar­ry­ing her Prince Charm­ing was the start of a real-life fairy tale, but it’s be­come a night­mare.

“She says she can’t do any­thing right in the eyes of her new royal fam­ily.

“Frankly, she feels trapped! She was so dis­traught, she told con­fi­dantes she was ready to walk out! But thank­fully, Michelle came to the res­cue.”

Hug­ging the tear­ful Duchess of Sus­sex tightly, Michelle told her, “Meghan, you WILL get through this!”

Al­though Michelle, 54, con­fessed she was so over­whelmed by her role as first lady that she hid in the White House for the first few months, she told Meghan, “Give your­self a break!

“Maybe you took on too much, too soon, but it’s not too late to put the brakes on and re­group.”

Since mar­ry­ing Harry in May, life has been a whirl­wind for Meghan, 37. She’s en­dured royal tours, given speeches, helped write a cook­book and will be a first-time mom be­fore their first an­niver­sary!

She also cut ties with her own fam­ily — ex­cept her mom, Do­ria Ragland — af­ter their scan­dalous be­hav­ior. Her fa­ther, Thomas Markle, posed for em­bar­rass­ing pho­tos and re­vealed de­tails of talks with Harry — a royal no-no — then pub­licly blasted Meghan, say­ing she’s “al­ways been de­mand­ing” and is “good at

Harry’s fam­ily has turned against the Hol­ly­wood brat

bend­ing the rules.”

Mean­while, es­tranged half­sis­ter Saman­tha bad-mouthed her, and half-brother Thomas asked Queen El­iz­a­beth to make sure Meghan didn’t end up dead like Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, who was killed by her ex-hubby, Prince Charles!

Michelle told Meghan to ig­nore her shock­ing rel­a­tives — that’s what she did! — and fo­cus on what’s most im­por­tant, says the royal in­sider.

“You’ve got the best ex­cuse to drop out for a while — your new baby!” the aide says Michelle ad­vised.

Meghan’s first months as duchess haven’t gone well. She’s flouted royal rules, made out­ra­geous de­mands on staff — two as­sis­tants quit — and has been branded a brash Hol­ly­wood brat by her in-laws!

“She also made an en­emy of Wil­liam’s wife, Kate, and their se­cret cat­fight is rip­ping their hus­bands apart,” dishes the in­sider.

It was Harry, 34, who urged Meghan to talk to mom-of-two Michelle.

“He has a close friend­ship with Pres­i­dent [Barack] Obama and his wife,” says the in­sider.

“He told Meghan, ‘If any­one can help you sur­vive life in this gold­fish bowl, it’s Michelle.’ ”

And the for­mer first lady came through — in per­son and by phone!

“Meghan is get­ting ad­vice on moth­er­ing, mar­riage and, in time, step­ping out of her hus­band’s shadow, in late-night tête-à-têtes,” says the in­sider.

“The women have formed a tight bond. As Michelle told Meghan, ‘Been there, done that! Call me any­time.’ ”
