Meghan Markle Is Protective of ‘Brand Meghan,’ Says Royal Biographer

While everyone knows that the royal family members are notorious for putting forth a specific image, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has always managed to do so while bending the rules just a bit. She is very secure in who she is, and one of the things that fans admire most about her is the fact that her confidence is pretty much unmatched.

It is safe to say that it wasn’t exactly easy for Meghan after she married Prince Harry. She took an excessive amount of backlash in the British tabloids, which, as we are all well aware, was one of the main reasons that Meghan and Prince Harry decided to step down from their positions as senior royals.

Unlike her husband, Meghan certainly wasn’t born into royalty. She was not famous growing up and had to work hard to establish herself as a successful actress. Ever since she landed her big break on the legal drama Suits, it seems that Meghan has had so many amazing accomplishments that she is extremely proud of.

Now, a royal biographer is saying that Meghan is protective of “Brand Meghan.” Let’s take a look.

Meghan was born and raised in Los Angeles, and she is truly a California girl at heart. It wasn’t until she took on the role as Rachel Zane on Suits that she moved to Toronto, where the show was being filmed.

From there, Meghan went on to enter into a serious relationship with Prince Harry, and Harper’s Bazaar reports that she officially moved to England in 2017. The United Kingdom and California are different in so many ways, and we can only imagine that Meghan’s new surroundings took some getting used to.

However, after marrying Prince Harry in May of 2018 and becoming the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan was pretty adamant about moving forward in the most positive way that she could.

It seems that Meghan is pretty much known for being as classy as they come. She always looks great, and she certainly knows how to handle herself with grace and dignity in any situation.

According to Express, it was evident from the very beginning that Meghan was a wonderful actress, and as her fame continued to grow, she knew that she had to be as sophisticated as she could. Meghan wanted to be seen in a certain light and made it a priority to ensure that she was always giving off a very specific vibe.

Chances are, the duchess knew, even years ago, that as an actress and humanitarian, she was always being very closely watched and that she needed to do what was necessary to establish an excellent reputation as someone who was poised and refined, which is exactly what she did.

A royal biographer says Meghan is protective of her brand

It is no secret that neither Hollywood life nor royal life is easy, and Meghan is one of the few people who can say that she has experienced both. So, what does royal biographer have to say?

Well, he feels that she is very protective of “Brand Meghan,” according to Images. This could easily be seen when Meghan was married to her first husband, Trevor Engelson, who was extremely different than she was. Meghan was more conservative, while Engelson was laid back, and spoke his mind.

Andrew Morton, a royal biographer, wrote that Engelson was “very different to his [then] bride-to-be who, as her former colleagues on Deal or No Deal observed, was always very self-contained and considered”.

Morton added: “Trevor loose-lipped, unconcerned, carefree, a striking counterpart to Meghan, who was archly protective of ‘brand Meghan’, always keen to project an air of sophistication and style.

Looks like Meghan is well aware of the fact that a lot of hard work went into having people see her the way she wants to be seen, and we can’t blame her for being protective of her image.
