Meghan Markle will be receiving 2023 Women of Vision Awards on Tuesday in New York City, just a week after King Charles III was crowned in London. Expert believes this is a slap on the King’s face.
Author of “The King,” Christopher Andersen noted that this is the perfect time to honor the Duchess of Sussex.
“What a slap in the face to the man who walked her down the aisle when her own father didn’t show up at her wedding, and to the country she adopted, for better or worse, as her own,” Andersen told Fox News Digital on Monday.
During their wedding ceremony, which took place on May 19, 2018, at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, there was a change in the traditional proceedings. Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, was originally supposed to walk her down the aisle. However, due to health issues, he was unable to attend the wedding. Instead, King Charles, Prince Harry’s father, stepped in and accompanied Meghan down the aisle.
“You know, charity begins at home,” he shared. “Much of the time Harry looks like a fish out of water, and you don’t have to be an expert to see he’s still hurting. If she is truly a sensitive and caring person, she would make it her top priority to help mend her husband’s relationship with his brother Prince William and the king.”
He continued, “Marrying into the royal family, accepting a title, and then bailing to take advantage of your new global superstar status seems, well, tacky.”
Andersen also claimed that Meghan wants to become next Oprah Winfrey.
“As I’ve said before, Meghan is aiming to be the next Oprah – a multimedia titan with real political clout,” said Andersen. “She won’t run for office because I think she is far too thin-skinned. But she does want to have an impact on the next election.”
He continued, “Meghan is very outspoken about issues and candidates, so expect to see her on the campaign trail. She’s making it clear that she has a life of her own, doing the things she thinks are important.”
“She also seems to be saying that getting a trophy from Gloria Steinem is more important to her than seeing her husband’s dad crowned king of England,” he concluded. “It’s an in-your-face gesture aimed at the royal family she just snubbed.”
It’s worth noting that in March 2021, Meghan and Harry conducted a highly publicized interview with Oprah Winfrey, where they discussed their experiences within the royal family. During the interview, Meghan mentioned that King Charles had stopped taking her calls and had been distant after their marriage.
King Charles did walk Meghan Markle down the aisle during her wedding to Prince Harry.
