How is Meghan Markle putting the royal reputation at stake?


Well, for most of you, who follow the royals, might have an idea what this is about. However, do you think Meghan is really putting royal reputation at stake?

So, apparently, the Duchess of Sussex is putting the royal reputation at stake with her behaviour. She is risking the royal family’s reputation and making the same mistakes.

According to Princess Diana’s former private secretary, Patrick Jephson this all is true. He made the explosive claim in a newspaper article following Meghan’s lavish New York baby shower this week. The baby shower was a lavish event that was attended by many of Meghan’s high-profile celebrity friends.

So, really, is she making a mistake?

It is being reported that the stateside visit came at no additional cost to the taxpayer. That is because it was a privately-funded affair. And with Meghan flying on a private jet to get there. But then, there are those who worry that this kind of behaviour will soon lead to bigger liberties.

And one such person is former royal aide, Patrick Jephson. He suggested that the soon-to-be mother’s recent excursion could open a Pandora’s box of unintended consequences. Having spent almost eight years as private secretary to Princess Diana, he claims to have recognise that the line between official and private travels is never about the money.

He went on to issue a warning to the Duchess of Sussex.

Mr Jephson said: “Trips like Meghan’s baby shower sojourn risk the credibility and dignity of the royal free-riders. Rich people’s jets, in this case a Gulfstream reportedly paid for by George and Amal Clooney”. 

This all, always comes with a bill attached. Even if it’s not the kind you can pay with a Duchy of Cornwall credit card. From any angle, the look of Meghan Markle’s Manhattan partying is pretty unedifying”.
