Meghan Markle didn’t hide her apparent disdain for royal duties before “Megxit,” once even complaining out loud that she should have gotten paid for her 2018 tour of Australia, during which she treated staffers “horribly,” a new book claims.
The Duchess of Sussex reveled in her reception Down Under as the newly minted “inspirational” bride of Prince Harry, but in private Markle sang a different tune, The Sun reported, citing the book “In Courtiers: the Hidden Power Behind the Crown” by Valentine Low.
“Although she enjoyed the attention, Meghan failed to understand the point of all those walkabouts, shaking hands with countless strangers,” Low reportedly wrote.
“According to several members of staff, she was heard to say on at least one occasion, ‘I can’t believe I’m not getting paid for this.’”
The American actress also bullied courtiers before she was even a member of the royal family, and continued to treat them harshly until she and Harry announced they were splitting from the palace in 2020, the book said.ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
