Here is Buckingham Palace in London, England, the site of the palace intrigue as revealed by Prince Harry and Megan Markle during their recent interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The media has sometimes portrayed Meghan Markle as a cruel and heartless woman, ever since her marriage with Prince Harry, even after she stepped down as a member of the royal family. Markle recently opened up about her lack of protection and unequal treatment, in a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, where she revealed some difficulties regarding her time living at Buckingham Palace.

Going into her marriage with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle had made no prior preparations for marrying into a 2,000 year old British institution of the monarchy. In her recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, Markle mentioned that the perception and reality of the being in the royal family and the institution are two vastly different things than what is presented outside to the media. While Markle was originally well received by the media up until the Australia tour by the royal family, she began to face media backlash with a false reality being put out into the public by the media, one that was different than the actual reality that Markle was living.

The situation with Archie, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s child, was twisted by the media. In reality, they chose themselves to leave the baby without a Prince title. During the interview with Oprah Winfrey, they also discussed how they were upset that they were given no explanation for Archie’s lack of protection by the British state security forces. The couple argued that their treatment had to do with Archie and Meghan’s black heritage.

The protection and income of the Duchess and Prince Harry were unexpectedly taken away as well, once they stepped back from official duties. While it is believed by some mistakenly that Meghan and Prince Harry completely left the royal family, they only stepped out of senior roles and wanted to step into non-senior roles, such as many other members of the royal family have done. Even after pleading with the royal family to at least keep Harry’s security in place, their pleas for help were refused.

One could argue that the media and the royal family allowed it so that Markle could serve as a scapegoat for palace drama within the walls of Buckingham Palace, starting with a story that happened before her marriage with Prince Harry. Six months after the marriage took place, Meghan Markle was accused of causing Kate Middleton to cry over a dispute over flower girl dresses for Meghan’s wedding. In actuality, it had been Kate who had caused Meghan to have the outburst, and the entire royal family knew the truth. When asked by Oprah Winfrey why the institution did not release the true facts, Meghan could only say “that’s a good question,” meaning that she was unsure as to why they allowed her to be so blatantly blamed over an event for which she was indeed the victim.

Even the death of 99 year-old Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and the Queen’s husband, was associated with Meghan Markle. Fox News reporter Brian Kilmeade blamed the death of the Duke of Edinburgh on the stress caused by Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey. “If you factor in this, there are reports that he was enraged after the interview …Here he is trying to recover, and then he gets hit with that,” Kilmeade said. 

Beyond the false stories being published on the Duchess of Sussex, Megan Markle agreed with Oprah Winfrey that she and Kate Middleton were judged using widely different standards. “Kate was praised for cradling her baby bump and the headline about you doing the same thing said, ‘Megan can’t keep hands off her baby bump for pride or vanity,’” noted Oprah Winfrey during the interview. Another headline that dramatized a simple event in Meghan Markle’s daily life and showed a clear bias against Markle was when the he British newspaper Express praised Kate Middleton for eating an avocado as a healthy snack during pregnancy with the headline, “Kate’s morning sickness cure? Prince William was gifted with an avocado for Pregnant Duchess.” However, once Meghan Markle did the same thing, the headline ran, “Meghan Markle’s beloved avocado linked to human rights abuse and drought, millennial shame.”

It seems that the British media can only love one princess, either Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton, not both.

Meghan Markle once bravely put her trust into the royal institution in the hopes that it would protect Markle, her family, and her image in the media. During much of her time living in Buckingham Palace, she remained silent to all of the injustices and media bullying that she faced. 

One of the more memorable lines from Oprah Winfrey’s interview, was when Winfrey asked the question, “Were you silent or were you silenced?” Markle’s response was, “the latter.”
