Meghan Markle latest news – Duchess ‘lost her temper’ to Kate’s staff as Montecito mansion engulfed by foul smell


ROYAL author, Tom Quinn, has claimed palace insiders told him about an incident when Meghan “lost her temper” at a member of Kate Middleton’s staff.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Quinn described an alleged incident where Meghan felt she was not being treated with the same respect as Kate while she and Prince Harry lived at the Palace.

Quinn said “Meghan and Harry were living in what’s called Nottingham Cottage and it’s probably the only bit that you genuinely really could say, is actually quite small,” Quinn said.

“And so, I think that reminded Meghan that she was, as it were, second place or as the runner-up.

“The reason she lost it with Kate’s member of staff was that she, Meghan, didn’t feel that this person was giving her the sort of attention she deserved.

“It was almost as if in that one encounter, it encapsulated for Meghan the problem that she had, that she’s a Princess and she’s number two.”

The news comes as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s £11million mansion is said to have been engulfed by a foul smell, leaving neighbours “disgusted.”

The Duchess of Sussex has been contacted for comment.

    Helen said: “I think their instincts are absolutely right, and I applaud them for it. Hugely actually. Of course, it is complicated.

    “Meghan Markle was a fantastic addition to the Royal Family — charming, did everything right, was gracious, was sweet-natured, and seemed to be… Wow! What a lovely addition!.”

    She continued: “So, I think it is a loss in a way, but at the same time I think their instincts are absolutely correct.

    “And I think it will all, hopefully, sort itself out, and the tabloid pearl-clutchers will get over their trauma at not having someone to attack all the time.”

    “The decision has now been made that she will strengthen the institution of the Monarchy which is why when he is crowned, a crown will go onto her head.”

  • Explained: Who is Samantha Cohen?

    Samantha Cohen wass the private secretary to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

    She took over the role in the summer of 2018 after Prince Harry’s own personal assistant Edward Lane Fox stepped down.

    While her move to look after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was meant to be an interim role, it is widely believed that Meghan had asked for her to stay on as a permanent staffer.

  • PM looking to hire Meghan’s former aide

    Nicknamed “Samantha the Pantha”, the 53-year-old Aussie was a long time press guru for the Queen before being seconded to Kensington Palace in 2018.

    Tasked with showing the Duchess of Sussex the ropes, she took on the ultimately doomed job of trying to prepare Meghan for life in the Firm.

    He also cleared out the whips office and installed two old pals to quash the Tory mutiny in a mini-reshuffle this week.

    “There’s a way out of it, and if there’s a way out of it and we know there’s a solution, I’m like a typical guy. I just want to help fix things.”

    He added: “What my mum did and so many other people did at that time was to smash that wall down, and kick the door open and say, ‘No, when people are suffering, then we need to learn more’.”
