Meghan Markle is said to be trying to “steal attention” away from King Charles’ Coronation, a royal commentator has claimed.
The Duchess of Sussex has appeared three times in the past week, during which she attended an NBA game in Los Angeles with her husband Prince Harry, announced her partnership with a major Hollywood agency and she introduced a TED talk.
Writing in the Daily Mail, Dan Wootton alleged that these appearances by the royal — who he refers to as ‘Duchess of Woke’ — are part of a PR push to steal the spotlight.
He claimed: “After months of purposefully shunning the spotlight, allowing her helpless husband, Harry, to shoulder the backlash against his grotesque and unnecessarily nasty royal shaming tell-all Spare, the Duchess of Woke has viscerally exploded back into public consciousness, with a three-step campaign seemingly taken straight from the Princess Diana playbook.
“It seems Meghan strategically timed her almost total disappearance from the spotlight for four months – a lifetime in Californian terms – in order to make a maximum impact when she did emerge at this critical juncture.
“Even the Sussex Squad must concede there was absolutely no reason why any of these trio of PR events had to take place in the past week.
