Meghan Markle may be living the life of a princess over at Kensington Palace, but not all of Prince Harry’s friends are welcoming her with open arms.
"Her politics are an issue," Lady Colin Campbell (a confidant of Princess Diana) tells The Daily Beast. "She is ultra-liberal and that trendy-lefty stuff does not go down well with some of Harry’s friends."
One of the biggest issues is hunting. "He has introduced her to them all at parties and weddings and private dinners, but she is very anti- a lot of the things that their world functions upon, such as shooting," Campbell says, adding that "everybody discovers after marrying into the royal family how solitary and arduous an existence it can be. Meghan has already begun to discover this."
Another sources tells the DB that Markle hasn’t received many visitors, and when she’s spotted in public, she’s alone.
"There never seems to be anyone with her except a cop following at a discreet distance. She does not seem unhappy but she does seem very solitary," says the local.
Meanwhile, it seems even Prince Harry is intimidated by the Queen. In a new trailer for HBO’s Queen of the World documentary, Harry says everyone panics when she pops up.
"If you suddenly bump into her in the corridor," Harry cheerfully advises the assembled staff, "don’t panic." Then he laughs and adds, "I know you will. We all do."
The film includes behind-the-scenes footage of the royal life, including the Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla, Princess Anne, Prince William and Catherine, the Countess of Wessex, Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
The film bows on HBO on Monday, October 1st.
