Meghan Markle can reportedly win back the public after testing their patience again and again with the help of Princess Diana.
Even though the Princess of Wales is no longer around, the Duchess of Sussex can still learn a thing or two from her. Patrick Jephson, Princess Diana’s former chief of staff, told Daily Mail that the late royal did things differently from Markle when she went to Wimbledon.
“Top tip for Sussex courtiers: when my former boss Princess Diana went to Wimbledon privately, she was aware that she was actually attending a prolonged photo shoot. Diana generally never took any staff with her,” he said.
When Markle attended Wimbledon last week, she sat in between two of her female friends. Her royal aide also prevented other attendees from taking photos of the royal.
“Compare that with the images we’ve seen of the Duchess of Sussex with two friends, huddled like survivors in a life-raft, alone on a sea of empty green seats in what has been described as an ‘exclusion-zone.’ Right now, it is the Royal advisers to Harry and Meghan who must up their game – or else hand in their fancy racquets on their way out the door,” he said.
Meanwhile, other than the criticisms that Markle received from shunning away royal fans at Wimbledon, she was also criticized when she took her son, Archie, to Prince Harry’s polo match.
The Duchess of Sussex was photographed carrying her 2-month-old baby in an uncomfortable-looking manner. Motherhood guru Lucy Shrimpton told Yahoo UK clarified that Markle didn’t make a mistake with how she carried her son.
In fact, the manner in which she did it is actually the recommended hold for mothers and their babies.
“While parents will adopt their own styles of holding and comforting their babies in a range of ways, the way Meghan is pictured holding Archie is actually a commonly recommended hold,” she said.
