Meghan Markle was deliberately sparking controversy — even before Megxit — as part of a concerted PR plan to “make her into the most famous person on Earth,” according to a royal biographer.
Lady Colin Campbell — who previously wrote about Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana — said she only focused attention on the couple because she learned Markle was “getting up to all sorts of things in America that she was strictly forbidden from doing as a royal.”
“Mostly Meghan, but with Harry’s connivance,” the 71-year-old biographer told Graham Norton on his BBC radio show, accusing the Duchess of Sussex of meddling in commercial enterprises as well as politics.
“And also instructing her PR people that they were to make her into the most famous person on Earth,” Campbell insisted of Markle’s apparent strategy last year.
The long-time royal watcher said it was “a very deliberate policy.”
“And it has to involve a tremendous amount of controversy — otherwise you’re just not that famous,” she added.
But Campbell conceded that she herself is “absolutely” feeding into that plan by penning her book, “Meghan and Harry: The Real Story.”
“I think it’s history in the making, and I don’t care if she ends up being the most famous person on Earth or not,” she told Norton on the BBC podcast posted Saturday. “I [just] care that there is an interesting story to be told.”
The biographer also claimed that once she started writing her book, the Sussexes tried to “influence the narrative through mutual friends.”
“Harry, on Meghan’s behalf, got a great friend of his to sell me a load of rubbish about Meghan and her relationship with her father,” she told Norton. “I completely erupted because I knew it was completely untrue.”
The Sussexes did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
