Meghan Markle, one of the Queen’s children and the Royal Family as a whole, reportedly sought advice from Princess Anne. Princess Anne is suggested to have conducted over 20,000 engagements since her 18th birthday, with a total of 170 working days and 179 engagements in 2021.
Royal expert Neil Sean told The Express “This senior royal takes no nonsense, much like her father the late Duke of Edinburgh.”
Sean went on to describe an incident in which Meghan was left “dumbfounded” after seeking advice from Princess Anne about performing royal duties.
“Apparently, when Meghan Markle joined the Royal Family, she sought out Princess Anne. According to a very good source, Princess Anne gave very sage advice to the new royal. As we know, Princess Anne is the hardest-working royal.”
Sean continued, “She does endless amounts of engagements.
“She turns up does the job and does not seek the limelight, and represents the Queen. I thought the recent visit together with the Queen to the Thames Hospice was wonderful.
“But apparently Meghan left her meeting with Princess Anne dumbfounded.
“Princess Anne reiterated this mantra, she pointed out that it wasn’t a working monarchy; it was a job, you turn up on time, you do your research, and do the duty.
“It’s all about the project at hand. She also pointed out that whatever charities you are involved in you, you needed to get involved and get immersed.”
Sean concluded, “According to a very good source Meghan Markle failed to warm to Princess Anne,” though neither Meghan nor Princess Anne herself has ever revealed this themselves.
Princess Anne, in fact, says nothing about Meghan and Harry’s departure from the Royal Family in an extensive interview with Vanity Fair on uncovering the truth behind a lifetime of royal service.
