Princess Anne reportedly knew Meghan Markle had a ‘short shelf life’ in the monarchy: Royal Commentator

Princess Anne is said to have once given Meghan Markle words of wisdom that left the Duchess of Sussex “stunned”, a royal expert has claimed.

Neil Sean, a royal commentator and reporter who has appeared on Fox News, Sky News Australia, NBC News and other outlets, claimed on his YouTube channel that Markle “seeked out” Queen Elizabeth II’s only daughter after the she married Prince Harry and joined the royal family. International Business Times has not been able to independently verify its claims.

The royal expert, citing an unnamed insider, claimed that during their alleged conversation, Markle received “wise advice” from the Princess Royal, who told Sean he had “met her on many occasions” with whom he has worked in the past and have interviewed.

Markle reportedly left her encounter with Princess Anne “absolutely stunned” after the senior royal pointed out that the “Suits” graduate had “taken a job” when she joined the company, Sean claimed.

According to Sean’s source, Princess Anne repeated this mantra: “You show up and do the work. You show up on time, are respectful, research, watch people with interest and try to figure out what exactly is the project or charity you are associated with. It’s not about the clothes, the hair, all the front pages. It’s all about the project you’re dealing with.”

Princess Anne Markle also reportedly pointed out that she needed to get involved with the charities she was associated with and give them the advice and profile they needed, according to Sean’s source.

Sean noted that Princess Anne has historically been considered the hardest working queen thanks to her busy work schedule. She reportedly performed 368 official engagements last year, surpassing Prince Charles’ 360. In 2017 alone, the princess made 455 official appearances at events, dinners and receptions at home, with an additional 85 engagements abroad, Britain’s The Times reported.

“According to a good source, Meghan felt she had failed to warm to Princess Anne,” Sean claimed. “More importantly, Princess Anne knew Meghan would have a very short shelf life on the world stage of the British monarchy.”

Prince Harry and Markle officially stepped down from their roles as senior working royals and performed their final royal duties in March 2020, nearly two years after tying the knot. The couple left the UK and settled in California, where they now live with their two children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet.

In April 2020, Princess Anne shared some words of wisdom for the “younger generation” of royals.

“I don’t think the younger generation is likely to understand what I’ve done in the past, and it’s often true, isn’t it? They don’t necessarily look at the previous generation and say, ‘Oh, you did that?’ or ‘You were there?'” she told Vanity Fair at the time. “They’re looking a lot more these days, ‘Oh, let’s do it in a new way.’ And I’m already on stage [of], “Please don’t reinvent this particular wheel. We were there, did that.’ Some of these things don’t work. You may need to go back to basics.”

A year later, Princess Anne was added to the list of members of the British Royal Family on the Royal Family’s website, seemingly taking the place of Prince Harry and Markle following her royal exit, according to Us Weekly.

After making their royal departure permanent in February 2021, Queen Elizabeth stripped the couple of their royal patronage and Prince Harry’s military appointments.
