King Charles’ ‘Simmering Resentment’ of Meghan Markle Sparks Palace Tension

Meghan Markle and Buckingham Palace appear to be locked in an ongoing struggle, characterized by what royal author and commentator Victoria Ward describes as “simmering resentment” that is nearly tangible.

This revelation, detailed in Ward’s piece for The Telegraph, sheds light on the persistent tensions between the Sussexes and the royal establishment.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have never shied away from controversy.

Their decision to carve out a unique path in Montecito marked a significant departure from traditional royal roles and generated substantial upheaval within the royal family.

However, far from finding the quieter, calmer life they may have sought, the past 12 months have been rife with turbulence.

The passing of Queen Elizabeth II further exacerbated the divide between the Sussexes and the rest of the Royal family. The air was thick with “simmering resentment” as the couple was treated as outcasts.

The tension escalated with the release of Prince Harry’s memoir, “Spare,” which promised an inside look into his life and experiences.

This literary endeavor created even more ripples in the already troubled waters, further fueling the tensions.

The situation didn’t improve due to ongoing legal battles in the UK, complications surrounding their Spotify deal, and the release of the Harry & Meghan docuseries. These events only deepened the chasm between the Sussexes and the Palace.

As Victoria Ward points out, the couple’s initial claims of being “joined at the hip,” often illustrated with analogies involving intertwined palm trees or salt and pepper pots, now appear somewhat strained in the face of these challenges.

While some might attribute these issues to typical “growing pains,” the underlying tensions are undeniable.

The ongoing friction highlights the complexities of their relationship with the Palace.

Meghan and Harry’s decision to forge their path outside traditional royal roles has not come without its share of obstacles.

The “simmering resentment” described by Ward reflects a deeper struggle for acceptance and understanding.
