Meghan Markle is all over the British press, with tabloid writers knighting her the “Demanding Duchess. The rumors about assistants fleeing from the micromanaging Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to be at the heart of the negative press. Then there was the recent announcement that Meghan and Harry will be moving to Frogmore House, instead of living next door to Prince William and Kate Middleton. Could this stream of negative press really be fueled by the constant Markle family disruptions?
Meghan Markle Loses Another Assistant
Samantha Cohen, a.k.a. “Samantha the Panther,” will be leaving the employment of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after their royal baby is born in the spring. According to Vanity Fair, Cohen was always intending on leaving in 2019. The interim secretary is leaving from her post with Duchess Meghan on a positive note. Cohen has served the royal family for nearly two decades and her expertise helped the former Suits star navigate royal life. Meghan and Prince Harry reportedly tried to convince the native Australian to stay on with them as they move to Windsor, but she has remained firm on departing.
In addition, Edward Lane Fox is also leaving his post, but this “trusted aid” had already made his decision even before Meghan and Harry said their wedding vows. But it is the loss of Melissa Touabati that appears to have jumpstarted the “Demanding Duchess” rumors. Although no one has actually quoted the former French personal assistant, many publications have indicated that servants will talk. Suddenly a cornucopia of negative Meghan news has overflowed. These negative reports appear to confirm the negative accusations made by Meghan’s evil step-sister Samantha Markle. But, it appears that others without the last name of “Markle” have plenty to say as well.
Demanding Duchess Headlines
The moment that Touabati departed from her stressful post, other rumors began to swirl. Meghan demanded air fresheners in St. George’s Chapel for the wedding. Meghan was not acting in a very royal way towards one of Duchess Kate’s servants. Kate reportedly took her then future sister-in-law aside to explain that this was not the royal way to handle things. Angry, Meghan turned around and told Prince Harry, causing friction between the two couples. This was in addition to reports that Prince Harry was allegedly angry with Prince William over Meghan. William reportedly cautioned his younger brother to learn more about Meghan Markle before he made her his wife. Emotional ginger Harry was livid, and Meghan was the cause of a rift between Princess Diana’s sons.
Then the British tabloids went ballistic when one of their own received the blunt negative treatment. Kate Middleton, who was forever mocked by the British press as “the waiter” because she waited so long for Prince William to make her his, was misaligned by the blunt American. The reports are that bridezilla Meghan had allegedly made a hormonal Kate Middleton cry during Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress fitting. This was mere weeks after the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to Prince Louis. Many may wonder if Kate will return the favor weeks after Meghan’s first royal baby is born.
Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Hiding From Public
Since the negative headlines, Meghan and Harry have appeared to have steered clear of public events. The two events that Meghan has attended, she has been slipped into, avoiding the public or the media. She went to King’s College, for a secret academic meeting. The former actress appeared tense, as photographers took her photo as she took notes on the discussion by academics.
Then, Harry and Meghan attended a secret Christmas party and board meeting of the Royal Foundation at Kensington Palace. The couple even attended the staff Christmas party afterwards! Kate and William were no where to be found, despite their regular attendance at these events.
The Duke and Duchess also missed the Queen’s annual Diplomatic Reception. Instead, they snuck into the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund carol service. While Meghan did a reading in a navy dress, highlighting her ever growing baby bump, Duchess Kate was at the party with over 1,000 attendees. She was wearing Princess Diana’s favorite piece of jewelry, the Lover’s Knot tiara, and hobnobbing with other high-ranking officials.

Meghan and Harry Ignoring Markles Is Fueling Negative Press
Could Meghan’s inability to deal with her father and her family be at the root of this “Demanding Duchess” problem? The press may feel that they could walk all over her because Harry and Meghan never solved the problems that are Thomas Markle, and wicked stepsister Samantha Markle.
Meghan and Harry have been ignoring the Markles since the beginning. Instead of directly dealing with the Markles, or making an announcement, they have been ignoring them. They are not going away anytime soon. Now, Thomas Markle, Meghan’s father, has been back in the media, clearly upset that his daughter has cut all contact with him. He has produced papers that he did have a heart attack. This was the legitimate reason that he did not walk his daughter down the aisle. Where he may have been once been considered part of Meghan’s dreadful family, now may be given a lot more sympathy.

Others, such as Duchess Kate and at least one personal assistant have reportedly been treated poorly by Meghan making even Samantha’s venomous accusations that her step-sister is “pushy” and demanding appear more true. Then there is the question that if Meghan Markle and Prince Harry cannot solve their family issues. How are they going to go out into the world and solve bigger problems such as animal extinction, education for women and global warming?
