Meghan Markle is ruffling feathers in the United Kingdom.
The newest member of the Royal Family has caused a stir with her atypical behavior.
Now someone very close to the family is spilling the beans on why several in the inner circle dislike her.
The United States and Great Britain obviously have a complicated history.
The conservative alliance of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher does not exist between Donald Trump and Theresa May.
As the United Kingdom marches further and further left, particularly on the issue of immigration, U.S.-UK relations have grown tense.
But that hasn’t stopped both sides from being fascinated with each other’s culture.
One prime example is the Royal Wedding.
The 1981 wedding between Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer was deemed the “Wedding of the Century” and was watched by 750 million people on television.
Americans have been captivated by the royal intrigue, and recently they had one of their own participating in the spectacle.
Meghan Markle acted in Hollywood for over a decade, appearing in several television shows and films.
Her most notable role was as the invaluable paralegal Rachel on the USA series Suits.
But Markle left the show and essentially retired from acting for an unusual reason: marriage.
Getting married doesn’t preclude one from acting, but it does when you marry into the British Royal Family, which is what Markle did.
Prince Harry and Markle’s royal wedding drew obviously massive attention on both sides of the pond.
Brits took a particular interest in Markle and watched her every move like a hawk, as the English tabloids are known to do.
The increased scrutiny has raised questions about Markle’s behavior.
For example, Markle recently threw a decadent baby shower that rubbed people the wrong way.
Markle rented a $75,000-per-night suite at The Mark hotel in Manhattan and hobnobbed with friends Serena Williams and Amal Clooney.
The entire affair, which was not attended by Harry’s sister-in-law Kate Middleton, ended up costing $500,000.
Patrick Jephson, long-time private secretary to the late Princess Diana, told the New York Post, “This is a clear sign that Meghan thinks that being a royal Duchess is about celebrity — not royalty.”
Jephson mentioned that when Princess Di went on extravagant excursions, she used much more discretion so as not to appear to out-of-touch.
Jephson intimated that Markle’s lavishness is alienating many in the Royal Family who prefer to maintain a lower profile.
Markle’s behavior is emblematic of the left’s hypocrisy.
They’re quick to flash their wealth while also crowing about income inequality.
Amal Clooney and megastar husband George are particularly galling.
George Clooney parrots every leftist talking point, yet has amassed over $500 million from show business and selling tequila.
Leftists are happy to bang against “the rich” so long as they’re insulated from the consequences of their ideology.
