Meghan Markle Is Extremely Picky About All Aspects of Her Life, Source Claims

As a mixed-race woman who was raised by a single mother in Los Angeles, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex‘s story doesn’t look like one typical of a member of the British royal family. From her own sheer tenacity, Meghan attended the prestigious Northwestern University before moving back home to try and break into Hollywood.

Finding recognition in acting was not easy for the Duchess of Sussex. She spent her early 20s making ends meet through her talent for calligraphy and working as a suitcase model on Deal or No Deal. Finally, in 2010, she got a starring role in the hit USA drama series, Suits where she gained notoriety playing Rachel Zane.

Though Suits has a cult following, living in Toronto allowed Meghan some semblance of privacy until her romance and eventual marriage to Prince Harry skyrocketed her to fame. However, marrying into the royal family meant Meghan had to give up a lot, including some aspects of her identity. It did not work. Now one source is claiming that Megan’s difficulties in the royal family all stem from her being too picky.

50 years ago, women in Britain won the right to equal pay. That monumental moment began with one courageous and inspiring group of women in a factory in Dagenham, England. In 1968, facing a pay settlement that declared them less skilled than men, the sewing machinists of the Ford Motor Company walked out on strike. In the face of great pressure, they stood firm, and two years later the UK Parliament was forced to pass the Equal Pay Act, protecting and supporting working women ever since. To mark International Women’s Day, The Duchess of Sussex visited Dagenham to meet with Geraldine Dear, one of the strikers, and spend time with students at the Robert Clack Upper School to meet the town’s next generation of female role models, and talk to young women and men about the women who inspire them. • “Being in Dagenham is incredibly profound. Because as you can see with Geraldine and the other women who had the strength to really stand up for something that they knew needed to be done. This is the best example of no matter how small you might feel, how low you may feel on the ladder or the totem pole, no matter what colour you are, no matter what gender you are, you have a voice, and you certainly have the right to speak up for what is right.” – The Duchess of Sussex A lifetime advocate and campaigner for gender equity, The Duchess joined a special assembly to celebrate this remarkable local story, as well as recognise the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of all women around the world. #InternationalWomensDay #IWD2020 #EachForEqual Photo © The Duke and Duchess of Sussex / Chris Allerton

Image is very important to Meghan Markle

As someone who worked tirelessly to cultivate a certain image for herself, Meghan was not prepared to lose control of that when she married into the royal family. “As an actress, Meghan expects perfection,” royal expert Duncan Larcombe, told The Sun. “But when you’re in the royal family, you have to learn that it’s not about you, it’s about what you represent.”

Royal life also meant she lost a great deal of freedom. “Even though [Meghan] was a famous actress, she could still do what she wanted in the way of getting around freely,” an insider told the Daily Mail in 2018. “But in her current role she can’t go anywhere without her protection team, and that’s a massive constraining force on an individual like her.”

In the end, Meghan could not grabble with how unfair it was to let someone control her narrative.

Meghan Markle didn’t fit into royal life because she was too different

Initially, the Palace aids and the British press were enamored by Meghan’s work ethic and charisma. However, they soon began to resent the duchess because she was different and had her own way of doing things.

“It was felt that she was demanding,” royal author Tom Quinn explained to Fox News. “I think Meghan felt, ‘I’ve got to really do this. I’ve got to show them that I mean business.’ … I think there’s some truth in it, in the problem being that she’s so different. And so that inevitably made it more difficult from the outset for her to be accepted fully as part of the royal family. And the press is very powerful in Britain.”

In the end, Meghan and Prince Harry refused to let the press run wild with their lies, so they left royal life.

Meghan Markle is extremely picky about all aspects of her life

In the documentary Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, the duchess admitted that her friends warned her against marrying Prince Harry because of the press.

“I had no idea,” she explained. “Which probably sounds difficult to understand here, but when I first met my now-husband, my friends were really happy because I was so happy, but my British friends said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s great, but you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life.’”

One of those who warned Meghan was her former agent Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne who is from the U.K. However, Nelthorpe-Cowne explained that Meghan refuses to listen because she’s very “picky” and dismisses people who don’t agree with her.

“I told her she didn’t know what she was letting herself in for,” Nelthorpe-Cowne told Daily Mail.  “She was naive. I still think that now. I said, ‘This is serious. This is the end of your normal life, the end of privacy – everything.’ But she just held up her hand and said: ‘Stop. I don’t want to hear any negativity. This is a happy time for us.'”
