Meghan Markle: How She Got Owned by The Queen on Her Wedding Day

According to a new report, someone out there thinks Meghan Markle has a pretty serious attitude problem.

And here’s the thing:

That someone is NOT Meghan Markle’s half-sister.

And it’s not Meghan Markle’s father, either.

An insider tells The Sun that Markle wanted to wear a tiara with emeralds on her big wedding day back in May, but she was told this was an unacceptable choice.

Meghan had her “heart set” on this accessory, writes Robert Jobson in his new book, and she “hit the roof” when the Palace denied the request.

“The provenance of the tiara could not be established. There were concerns it could have come from Russia originally,” explains a source on why Markle was unable to don the item.

This same source adds that Queen Elizabeth herself was none too pleased with her pending daughter-in-law’s reaction to the flap.

“There was a very heated exchange that prompted the Queen to speak to Harry,” claims this report.

“She said, ‘Meghan cannot have whatever she wants. She gets what tiara she’s given by me.'”

This is how Markle ending up rocking a diamond and platinum bandeau tiara when she exchanged her vows on May 19.

The book goes on to detail how the Queen also wondered why Meghan needed a veil for the wedding, given it was to be her second marriage.

“The message from the Queen was very much Meghan needed to think about how she speaks to staff members and be careful to follow family protocols,” alleges this insider, who says Markle has been accused on numerous occasions of mistreating employees at the Palace:

“Meghan can be difficult. She has very high standards and is used to working in a Hollywood environment.”

Allow us to pause here and say: LOL!!!!!

The implication is somehow that the environment on the set of the USA Network drama Suits, on which Markle starred for seven seaons, was more professional/formal than the environment at Kensington Palace.

Throughout her time in the spotlight as Prince Harry’s girlfriend, fiance and now wife, Markle has mostly received rave reviews.

She seems very respectful and comes across as a very positive presence in general.

But she has run in to a few problems of late, from accusations that she sucks at bowing on a national stage to allegations that she far too often thumbs her nose Royal Protocol.

And her terrible relatives, of course, think she’s a phony liar.

Jobson’s book is titled “Charles at 70” and mostly focuses on the life of Prince Charles.

But it does touch on the relationship between the Queen and Markle and says while they clash on occasion, as documented above, they get along at other times because they both love dogs.

That’s pretty cute to note, isn’t it?

The Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: The Shade Queen

Monday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County was light on the nice, and heavy on the mean. 

It picked up in the immediate aftermath of Shannon Beador’s QVC debut, and she was on a high. 

She invited all of the ladies over to her house for a celebratory dinner. 

Gina Kirschenheiter was in attendance, and as you know if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, she has butted heads with some of the ladies over her looming divorce. 

The 34-year-old admitted that she was scared at the thought of “being a grown-up” when the divorce gets finalized. 

“I’ve never been alone…I’m scared,” cried Gina as she continued to speak to the ladies about it. 

Gina immediately took issue with the fact that Shannon did not ask her how things were. 

“Just ask me how my f***ing day was,” Gina yelled as she cried.

“‘I’m glad I’m out of this one,” complained Shannon as Gina continued to sob.

“I am noticing a pattern in Shannon’s behavior, of her really not caring about me at all…Shannon does have this way of just looking through you,” said Gina.

“It shouldn’t take this much time for her to acknowledge my existence, it shouldn’t take this much time for her to not be an a**hole,” she continued.

But Shannon was quick to tell Kelly Dodd the real reason why she did not care for Gina. 

“She’s 20 years younger than me… and she stirred the pot a few times with me,” Shannon said to her friend. 

It makes sense that Shannon would want to keep the new additions away from her because she wants to maintain some sort of storyline to have her contract picked up for another year. 

If these new women have a more significant presence, she runs the risk of being demoted to the dreaded “friend” status. 

What’s more, the new housewives come at a lower price tag because they haven’t been part of the show for as long. 

Elsewhere, Emily questioned whether it would be a wise decision to attempt to have another baby with one of the embryos she had left from her fertility treatments. 

Emily was open about her almost dying after suffering six miscarriages on a recent episode of the Bravo hit, so it’s fully understandable that her husband would be apprehensive about trying to conceive again. 

“I don’t think it’s right that you keep pushing me in that direction,” Shane said, but Emily wasn’t ready to back down.

“But I’ve always wanted more than one girl,” she said.

Emily was told that carrying another child could kill her following what happened the last time, so it’s a difficult situation for anyone to be in. 

It remains to be seen whether Shane will change his stance on the matter, but we’re inclined to believe he won’t. 

What are your thoughts on all the latest action?

Meghan Markle to Queen: Help! My Dad Is Ruining My Life!

Back in May, Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in front of an audience of millions.

The newlywed phase is a famously happy time for any couple, and as a bonus, Meghan recently became royalty.

All-in-all a pretty solid summer for the Suits actress.

Alas, her father, Thomas Markle, has devoted himself to raining on her parade the entire time.

In a seemingly endless series of interviews, Thomas has berated Meghan and attempted to destroy her carefully-cultivated public image.

Fortunately, most who are paying attention to the situation have been able to see through Thomas’ desperate con game.

As for what he stands to gain from all of this aside from the money he gets from the shady media outlets he’s been speaking to, that’s anyone’s guess.

As far as we can tell, Thomas is just a bitter SOB with an ax to grind — and not surprisingly, his anger is beginning to take a major emotional toll on his daughter.

Now, a source tells London tabloid The Mirror that Meghan has enlisted some help in dealing with her idiot dad:

“Meghan is deeply hurt by what is happening and everything is being done behind the scenes to make sure her welfare is at the top of the agenda,” says the insider.

“It’s an increasingly desperate ­situation and now it’s come down to three options being on the table.”

Those options are as follows:

“Firstly, Meghan could contact her father straight away and appeal to him directly to ask him to stop hurting her, but right now she’s decided to cut him off,” the source claims.

“There is a possibility an ­intermediary could meet with him and appeal to him to stop making such hurtful ­statements.

“The final option would be for Meghan to cut him off completely in the hope he will stop, but the situation is so precarious no one knows when that would be.”

According to Paul Dampier, a writer who has been covering the royal family for several decades, the feeling at Buckingham Palace is that the Thomas situation “has gotten out of control.”

“If this carries on I wouldn’t be surprised if the Queen herself gets involved and bangs a few heads together.”

Yes, there have been rumblings that QE2 is threatening to get involved.

We assume those heads Dampier referred to will be knocking around in a bucket after the Queen separates them from their bodies.

Sure she hasn’t beheaded anyone yet, but that’s gotta be on her monarchical bucket list, and at 92 she really shouldn’t go wasting any opportunities.

Meghan Markle Would Make a Better Queen Than Kate Middleton, Psychotic Brother Claims

When Meghan Markle married Prince Harry back in May, she instantly became the Duchess of Sussex.

It’s a slightly better situation than when you got married and instantly became burdened by someone else’s student loan debt and sh-tty credit score.

Anyway, the good news is that Meghan is the only person on the planet ever to make the leap from basic cable legal drama to duchess.

The bad news is, that’s about as high as she’s gonna climb in the royal hierarchy.

But if you’re a Meg fan who thinks the royals should just give her the keys to Buckingham Palace and let an American take a crack at this “queen” job, you’re certainly not alone.

Meghan has some terrible siblings who make a point of embarrassing her every chance they get.

Usually, they do so by trash talking her to anyone who will listen.

But recently, Meg’s brother, Thomas Markle Jr. decided to pursue a different strategy by throwing shade at her in-laws instead.

“With Meghan’s determination and Harry’s charismatic personality above William, Harry and Meghan would be a great king & queen some day and make the Royal Family proud,” Thomas wrote in an open letter to Queen Elizabeth II.

As you probably already know, Prince Charles is next in line for the throne, followed by his son, Prince William.

That means it’s extremely unlikely that Prince Harry will ever become king.

In fact, that would necessitate Shakespearean levels of bloodshed.

And even if Harry became king, that wouldn’t make Meghan queen.

But Thomas doesn’t have time for all your “rules” and “logic.”

He knows what’s best for the royal family, and he wants the whole world to know it.

Yes, if you’re keeping track at home, this is the same brother who previously accused the Brits of turning Meghan into a royal “zombie.”

It seems he’s now changed his tack and decided that Meg is not the worst thing on two legs.

In fact, Thomas now believes his sister should literally be the next Queen of England.

Apparently, as long as the take is hot, Tom wants to claim it for his own.

Hopefully, dude is currently in his fifteenth minute of fame, because we really can’t stand much more of him.
