Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall Has 1 Piece of Advice for Meghan Markle

Everyone in the world right now knows that Meghan Markle is miserable. The Duchess of Sussex candidly spoke about her unfair treatment in the media during the explosive ITV interview, which has been getting mixed reviews from royal fans. But now that we know things need to change for Markle, what is she going to do about it?

Royal experts predict that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might be planning to quit the working royal life. But this is an extreme solution that won’t be taken lightly. Before these two escape to some remote location, they’ll want to exhaust every option for fixing the problem. And the best person to give them advice? The original adversary of the press: Camilla Parker Bowles.

Camilla is sympathetic to Meghan Markle’s plight

No one understands just how cruel the tabloids can be better than Prince Charles’ former mistress and current wife, Camilla. Even though she enjoys plenty of respect now, there was a time when the media viciously painted her as an evil, conniving homewrecker who deserved the worst treatment.

A royal source claims that Camilla has been in touch with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following the release of the bombshell documentary. Though she’s not a meddler in family matters for her stepsons, the Duchess of Cornwall wanted to make her support known.

Camilla Parker Bowles and Meghan Markle have plenty in common

Besides being married to prominent royal family members, Camilla and Meghan have a few other things in common. Most notably, both were more shunned from the get-go compared to someone like Kate Middleton.

Camilla’s strategy for dealing with the press is simple. She kills them with kindness, even though they used to be so cruel to her. Royal biographer Sally Bedell Smith explained it this way:

“I think Camilla can easily empathize with Meghan because of what she went through in the media,” she said. “At one stage, no one was more beleaguered by the tabloids than Camilla, but she was shrewd enough to know that antagonism would get her nowhere.”

Though things were tense at first, the Duchess of Cornwall’s portrayal in the press has slowly become more favorable the more she worked with them.

“Meghan could learn an enormous amount from Camilla,” Smith explained. “I think Camilla is genuinely a kind person and while there are many differences between the two of them, they have both been on the receiving end of some very negative press.”

Now she handles herself with grace

“The thing Camilla learned was how to cultivate a relationship with the press. I have watched her talk to reporters, be friendly with the photographers and win over the tabloids who had once tried to ruin her,” Smith said.

There’s no perfect solution to Meghan Markle’s problems. But if she does want to continue on her current path and living as a working royal, then asking for help from a veteran royal wife could be the perfect next move.
