Allegedly, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, was “suspicious” of Meghan Markle and her intentions when she joined the royal family. This allegation was made by Tom Bower, who has authored several unauthorized biographies of famous people, including Prince Charles and Mohamed Al-Fayed. He recently reported that Camilla remained “tight-lipped” with her opinions on Markle but she silently stayed doubtful.
Camilla Was Reportedly Suspicious of Meghan Markle
“From the outset, Camilla was suspicious about the adventuress from Los Angeles,” said Bower. “She found it hard to believe that Meghan would sacrifice her career and independence to serve silently as a team player devoted to the monarchy. But, as in all her conduct, Camilla remained tight-lipped. While watching Charles painfully believe that Harry was intent on publicly humiliating him, Camilla undoubtedly provided the comfort and good advice to reassure her husband that he had done the best he could.“
Additionally, Bower claimed that Camilla had a secret nickname for Meghan Markle. “During those inevitably endless, tortured and inconclusive conversations, Camilla is the sort who would refer to Meghan as ‘that minx’ – the self-seeking troublemaker whose antics will always end in tears.” Bower is reportedly working on a biography about Markle.
In February, Queen Elizabeth II stated a “sincere wish” for 74-year-old Camilla to be known as “Queen Consort,” not “Princess Consort,” when Prince Charles succeeds the throne. Camilla Parker Bowles was influential in the public’s forgiveness of Prince Charles’ infidelity which hurt his ex-wife, Princess Diana, before she died suddenly in a car crash in 1997. But in 2005, Charles married Camilla and she became the Duchess of Cornwall. Keep in mind that Camilla was “the other woman” in Charles and Diana’s fraught relationship. However, their persistent love story as well as Camilla’s down-to-Earth style and humor won over many opinions. Charles and Camilla responded to the queen’s wish, saying they are “touched and honored” at the decision.

Bower called attention to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s silence in response to the queen’s announcement. “Perhaps the Sussexes’ deafening silence is Meghan’s way of declaring war. It is believed that [Meghan] has never liked Camilla, and I am sure the feelings are reciprocated.” He alleged that their silence was “deliberate” and an “insult” to the palace.
