The Unflattering Nickname The Press Has Given Meghan Markle
Published – 12/13/2018 7:53 pm
Meghan Markle has apparently earned herself a not-so-nice nickname from royal staffers.
According to Inside Edition, British newspapers have alleged that members of the royal staff have taken to calling the Duchess of Sussex “Duchess Difficult.” The gossip rag notes that many palace employees have allegedly found the former Suits star to be “demanding.”
News of Markle’s unflattering nickname comes after reports that multiple members of her staff reportedly quit. First to leave her post was Markle’s personal assistant Melissa Touabti, in early November 2018. While Markle has not commented on Touabti’s exit, it’s thought that Markle’s issues with her family, which has largely played out in the press, and the stress that came along with planning Markle’s May 2018 wedding to Prince Harry were among the reasons that Touabti quit after working for Markle for just six months.
