‘Dictatorial’ Meghan ‘clashed’ with staff who asked ‘who do you think you are?’

Meghan Markle was “dictatorial” and “clashed” with royal staff in the run-up to her wedding with Prince Harry, a royal expert has said.

Camilla Tominey also claimed that the Duchess of Sussex was demanding and led to some “below-stairs chatter” about her and Harry.

The Daily Telegraph Associate Editor argued that this caused some of the staff to question Meghan’s position and who she thought she was.

She told the New Yorker: “I’ve put it down to a clash of cultures, in the sense that she had come from the celebrity world, which is very fast-paced and quite demanding.

"The royal world is very different – it’s much slower-paced, and hugely hierarchical.

“In the royal world, it’s ‘What should we do next?’ ‘Well, what did we do last time?’"

She continued: “It’s a bit like Downton Abbey – there’s a hierarchy of staff who have been at Buckingham Palace for years and years, to serve Queen and country.

"And, therefore, for Harry and Meghan to be making demands, there was a bit of below-stairs chatter, particularly with the Duchess, that was ‘Well, hang on a minute, who do you think you are?’"

The Daily Mail also reported that the former Suits star had displayed a "dictatorial" attitude when asking for St. George's Chapel to be spritzed by air fresheners.

According to reports however, friends of the Duchess deny this happened.

Last month it was revealed that Harry and Meghan made an “inappropriate” request to the Queen following their wedding.

The pair are said to have asked Her Majesty if they could live at Windsor Castle, as Harry’s two-bedroom cottage in Kensington Palace was not big enough for them.

The request however was quickly rejected.

The Daily Star has approached the Duchess of Sussex for comment.
