Meghan Markle ‘didn’t understand’ her important ‘duty to the Queen’ as a senior Royal

Meghan Markle didn't "learn the ropes" of Royal life, which contributed to hers and Prince Harry's decision to step down as senior members of the Firm in March 2020, experts have claimed.

Meghan, 41, and Harry, 38, announced they would be stepping down as senior working members of the family over two years ago and soon relocated to the US, leaving Royal life and the UK behind for good.

Experts have now revealed that it could have been Meghan's approach to Royal life that prompted her and Harry to leave, as unlike Kate Middleton, she wasn't cautious about learning the basics before engaging in Royal duties.

In his book, Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the Water Between the Windsors, investigative journalist Tom Bower questioned whether Meghan's reluctance to "learn the ropes" played a role in her decision to leave the Firm, and claimed that the Princess of Wales had become "irritated" with Meghan due to this.

Tom explained: "Kate had become irritated by her neighbour.

Unlike her own cautious approach to 'learn the ropes' before engaging in royal duties, Meghan was running — but what was her destination?

"And who was she running with? Did she realize that the Royal Family ran together under the monarch, not as competitive individuals?"

It takes a "long, long time" to "really understand" life as a Royal, expert Andrew Morton has said, revealing that he believes the Sussexes didn't give life as Royals "long enough" to decide if it was correct for them.

Speaking on The Mirror's podcast Pod Save The King, Andrew said: "I realised after watching the Royal Family for all these years that it takes a long, long time to really understand what it is like to be royal."

"The great tragedy, I think, is that Meghan and Harry didn't give it long enough to see whether they could give it a go. They were on the out almost before the wedding music had finished."

He went on to add that Meghan is a "natural" and could have used her talent and her Royal position to make "genuine change".

"Meghan is a natural… she had the great possibility of using her talent and her position to make a genuine change to the world.

"I don't think she's going to make such a change living in Montecito," Andrew added.
