Meghan Markle ‘wants to become most famous face in world’, claims royal author

Meghan Markle wanted her PR team to "make her the most famous person on earth" before her departure from the Royal Family, a royal expert has claimed.

Lady Colin Campbell, who wrote a book about the Sussexes titled Meghan and Harry: The Real Story, claims the Duchess knew she needed to be controversial to raise her profile.

She says that to reach her desired levels of fame, Meghan began engaging in activities she was banned from doing as a royal.

The author said these included several "commercial and political activities” in 2019.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry quit their senior royal roles at the end of March and are now living in Santa Barbara in Los Angeles.

Since moving stateside, the couple who retained their royal titles, have sparked controversy by engaging in US politics – an area in which the Royal Family is strictly neutral.

The Duchess called the election between Donald Trump and Joe Biden the “most important election of our lifetime”

While Harry urged the American people to “reject hate speech” when voting on November 3.

Speaking on Graham Norton's BBC podcast, Lady Campbell said: "I started writing that book because last year I knew privately that Meghan, with Harry's connivance, was getting up to all sorts of things in America that she was completely forbidden from doing as a royal.

"Getting involved with commercial enterprises, flying kites in terms of politics – because she's very political – and also instructing her PR people that they were to make her into the most famous person on earth.

"To be the most famous person on earth, it's a very deliberate policy and it has to involve a tremendous amount of controversy, otherwise you're just not that famous."

On the BBC podcast, the royal author also claimed the young royals tried to influence her book through associates.

Lady Campbell said: “They did try to influence the narrative through mutual friends.

"In January this year, Harry on Megan's behalf got a great friend of his to try and sell me a load of rubbish about Meghan and her relationship with her father.

"I absolutely erupted because I have a pretty fiery temper and I knew it was completely untrue."

On Sunday, Meghan and Harry took part in an online chat with activist and Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai to celebrate the International Day of the Girl.

During an adorable moment of the virtual discussion, Harry revealed their son Archie had recently taken his first steps, along with a number of precious firsts.

He said: "We were both there for his first steps, his first run, his first fall, his first everything."

Meghan added: "And it's just fantastic, because I think in so many ways we are fortunate to be able to have this time to watch him grow, and in the absence of COVID we would be travelling and working more externally, and we would have missed a lot of those moments.

"So I think it's been a lot of good family time."
