Meghan Markle reveals she was writing a daily journal – ‘raising fears of MORE bombshells’

Meghan Markle has revealed she was writing a daily journal before her and Prince Harry stepped down as working royals amid fears that she may publish a book with ‘more bombshell revelations’. 

The California-based royal said in an interview released this week that she was packing up ‘personal matters’ from Frogmore Cottage when she came across the diary. 

Meghan told the interviewer: ‘You go back and you open drawers and you’re like, Oh my gosh. This is what I was writing in my journal there?’ 

This has led to fears that the discovery of the diary, at her and Prince Harry’s official UK residence, when they were last in the UK in June for the Jubilee celebrations, will ‘trigger warning signals’ for the royal family.

Margaret Holder, author of Diana: The Caring Princess and royal expert, said: ‘She had enough time in the royal fold to learn secrets, some decades old, which could cause embarrassment and heartache for the Queen and her family, but could earn a fortune for Meghan.’

A source close to Prince Harry, who is bringing out his own book at the end of this year, told the Sun: ‘I’d be very surprised if Meghan wasn’t writing a book.’

This week alone Meghan told the Fall Fashion issue of The Cut – part of New York magazine, that she and Harry were ‘happy’ to leave Britain and were ‘upsetting the dynamic of the hierarchy… just by existing’ before they quit as senior royals. 

She also dropped another string of ‘truth-bombs’ in the latest episode of her Archetypes podcast, released yesterday, – including that she was only treated like a ‘black woman’ for the first time when she began dating the Duke, and that ‘things really shifted’ for her after she entered royal life.

It is also believed that the couple who will return to the UK next week will spend much of their time at their Windsor-based cottage – much like when the California-based couple were in England in June, when they kept a low profile.

Nelson Mandela’s grandson slams Meghan Markle for suggesting South Africans celebrated her wedding the same way they rejoiced his freedom 

Nelson Mandela’s grandson last night slammed Meghan Markle for suggesting her marriage to Prince Harry sparked scenes of joy in South Africa reminiscent of the 1990 release of the legendary anti-apartheid campaigner after 27 years in jail, telling MailOnline: ‘It cannot be equated to as the same’.

Zwelivelile ‘Mandla’ Mandela has said he was ‘surprised’ at her remarks in The Cut magazine when she claimed that three years ago a cast member of the Lion King had made the comparison between her royal wedding and Madiba’s historic walk to freedom.

 In a 6,409-word article called ‘Meghan of Montecito’, the former Suits star recalled an encounter she had at the 2019 London premiere of a live-action version of the Disney classic. She said an actor from South Africa pulled her aside and told her: ‘I just need you to know: When you married into this family, we rejoiced in the streets the same we did when Mandela was freed from prison’. 

But MailOnline has learned that the story has astonished the Mandela family. ‘Mandla’ Mandela, an MP and Chief of the late South African President’s Mvezo tribe, said he was ‘surprised’ at her remarks.

He told MailOnline: ‘Madiba’s celebration was based on overcoming 350 years of colonialism with 60 years of a brutal apartheid regime in South Africa. So It cannot be equated to as the same.’

His grandfather served 27 years in prison before being released and re-uniting opponents and going on to lead his country. 

Zwelivelile said when the people of South Africa expressed their joy at his grandfather’s release and danced in the streets, it was for a far more important and serious reason than her marriage ‘to a white prince’.

The African National Congress MP added: ‘We are still bearing scars of the past. But they were (Mr Mandela’s celebrations) a product of the majority of our people being brought out onto the streets to exercise the right of voting for the first time.’

Meghan’s claim has sparked rage and ridicule with critics telling her to ‘get lost’ and accusing her of showing ‘utmost disrespect’. 

 

She added: ‘The revelation that Meghan rediscovered what she was writing in her journal at Frogmore Cottage must trigger warning signals to the Royal Family.

‘For Meghan, a book about her time with the royals offers a great opportunity for settling scores, naming those who offended her, and hitting back at a system she didn’t understand and was unwilling to learn.’

An insider, who said the journal was kept the whole time when she was a royal, also added: ‘Harry and Meghan were told to ignore social media and newspapers but sometimes staff would say to them, ‘so sorry about what was written the other day’, and she would hit the roof. She wrote it all in her diary as an insurance policy.

‘If it ever saw the light of day it would surely be dynamite. By the sounds of it, this journal was rediscovered this summer, boxed up and shipped back to Montecito.’

The Duchess also told the Cut that she is not prevented from saying anything, interviewer Allison P Davis recalls: ‘It’s interesting, I’ve never had to sign anything that restricts me from talking,’ she reveals, as she ushers me toward the door. ‘I can talk about my whole experience and make a choice not to.’ Why doesn’t she talk? ‘Still healing,’ she responds.’  

The interview was released after it was claimed Harry and Meghan will not visit the Queen at Balmoral when they visit Britain next week amid an ongoing security row, and just days after Meghan used her new Spotify podcast to complain how she had to continue engagements on a royal tour in South Africa after a fire in Archie’s bedroom.

Nelson Mandela’s grandson last night also slammed Meghan Markle for suggesting her marriage to Prince Harry sparked scenes of joy in South Africa reminiscent of the 1990 release of the legendary anti-apartheid campaigner after 27 years in jail, telling MailOnline: ‘It cannot be equated to as the same’.

Zwelivelile ‘Mandla’ Mandela has said he was ‘surprised’ at her remarks in The Cut magazine when she claimed that three years ago a cast member of the Lion King had made the comparison between her royal wedding and Madiba’s historic walk to freedom.

The Cut reported also that 41-year-old Meghan listed a ‘handful of princes and princesses and dukes who have the very arrangement they wanted’, although none of these royals are named in the article.

Asked ‘Why do you think that is?’, she simply replied: ‘Why do you think that is?’, with the interviewer Ms Davis saying that she said this ‘right back with a side-eye that suggests I should understand without having to be told’.

The article states that Harry and Meghan suggested to ‘The Firm’ that they should be allowed to work on behalf of the monarchy but make their own money, with the Duchess saying: ‘Then maybe all the noise would stop.’

The article says: ‘They also thought it best to leave the U.K. (and the U.K. press) to do it. They were willing to go to basically any commonwealth, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, anywhere.’

She also told The Cut: ‘I think forgiveness is really important. It takes a lot more energy to not forgive. But it takes a lot of effort to forgive. I’ve really made an active effort, especially knowing that I can say anything.’

The article also refers to Meghan’s estranged father Thomas Markle, a retired lighting director who now lives in Mexico.

The report said that Meghan discussed how two families had been ‘torn apart’.

And it quotes Meghan as saying: ‘Harry said to me, ‘I lost my dad in this process.’ It doesn’t have to be the same for them as it was for me, but that’s his decision.’

New podcast titled The Duality Of Diva With Mariah Carey, Meghan talks with the pop superstar about the ‘complexities surrounding the ‘diva” and the negative connotations associated with the word.

Meghan and Mariah talked about the ‘complexities surrounding the word diva’ this week and the negative connotations associated with it before Ms Carey accused the duchess of being a ‘diva’ in the latest Archetypes Podcast released. 

‘I think that’s really important for people to remember that there might be this persona, and yes, the diva thing, we can play into,’ said Meghan during the podcast, before adding: ‘It’s not something I connect to.’ However, Mariah was quick to disagree with the duchess, insisting: ‘You give us diva moments sometimes, Meghan, don’t even act like (you don’t)’.

Buckingham Palace were braced for more bombshells hurled by Meghan after the interview with The Cut threatened to deepen Meghan and Harry’s rift with the Windsors.

Meghan and Mariah’s discussion about being mixed race came after Meghan claimed she didn’t want her children photographed because of racism.

She said yesterday: ‘Why would I give the very people that are calling my children the N-word a photo of my child before I can share it with the people that love my child? You tell me how that makes sense and then I’ll play that game’.

In the podcast, Mariah Carey told Meghan about her childhood, saying: ‘I didn’t fit in, it would be more of the black area of town, or then you could be where my mom chose to live, where the more white neighbourhoods and I didn’t fit in anywhere at all.’

Meghan replied: ‘Yeah. I understand that.’

Carey described how she was teased by a boy at school for having only three shirts and wearing them on rotation, adding: ‘It was true.’

The singer added: ‘In a world where you’re the mixed kid of a full-on white neighbourhood that’s what you get.’

The duchess replies: ‘This is part of why when I was putting this conversation together I had to talk to you. Of course I had to talk to you. You were so formative for me. Representation matters so much.’

It was later clarified by Omid Scobie, a close friend of the Sussexes, she was referring to her own father and not the Prince of Wales. 

He said: ‘There seems to be confusion in some headlines about this quote in The Cut interview.

‘I understand that Prince Harry is actually referring to Meghan’s loss of her own father, and Meghan is saying she doesn’t want Harry to lose his.’ 

Harry and Meghan run Archewell from their shared home office at their mansion in Montecito.

The article in The Cut refers to them having ‘two plush club chairs placed side by side behind a single desk, facing into the room like thrones’.

And it quotes Harry as saying: ‘Most people that I know and many of my family, they aren’t able to work and live together.’

The article also refers to him enunciating the word family ‘with a vocal eye roll’.

Harry added: ‘It’s actually really weird because it’d seem like a lot of pressure. But it just feels natural and normal.’

It comes after a royal expert said today that Harry and Meghan are very unlikely to visit the Queen at Balmoral when they return to Britain for a trip next week, and warned that the ‘family rift is getting worse, not better’.

The Sussexes have an ongoing row about their security with the Home Office – and tensions with the Royal Family have been deepened by mounting concerns over what will be published in Harry’s upcoming biography.

These issues will no doubt worsen after Meghan’s latest comments published in The Cut today, in addition to her making veiled criticisms of the family in her new Spotify podcast released last week.

Royal expert Phil Dampier told MailOnline today that he would be ‘very surprised’ if the Sussexes visit the Queen at Balmoral, where she is likely to remain for the next few weeks as concerns grow over her mobility issues.

He added that there is little ‘goodwill on both sides’ and that the royals will be ‘wary’ of Harry amid what could be in his book. Mr Dampier also said that a ‘visit to Scotland would create awkward family tensions for everyone’.

Tom Bower, whose recent biography of Meghan, Revenge, was highly critical of the duchess, suggested her interview was a form of ‘revenge’.

‘From her position it’s an excellent tactic,’ he told MailOnline. ‘She has taken the high ground, asserting her pristine righteousness, giving no quarter. It’s all about her greatness. 

‘Just as I described in my book, she is threatening the Royal Family with worse than her Oprah Winfrey interview That will be delivered during her visit to Britain next week and then in Harry’s book. Her revenge will be merciless.’

The Sussexes, who last went to Balmoral in 2018, are not planning to visit the Highlands estate, according to the Daily Telegraph – which also reported that they are still waiting on decisions around their security in the UK before they decide whether to travel off schedule.

A Home Office panel is also set to decide whether they qualify for protection by the Metropolitan Police.

On September 5, the Duke and Duchess will travel from their home in California to visit Manchester for the One Young World Summit, where Meghan will give the keynote address at the opening ceremony.

The couple will then head to Germany for an event to mark a year until the Invictus Games in Dusseldorf on September 6, before returning to the UK for the WellChild Awards in London on September 8 where Harry – a long-term patron of the charity – will give a speech. The Sussexes are expected to leave their children Archie and Lilibet at home in California.

There are no official engagements scheduled for September 7 – at least, none that have been announced at this stage – meaning they could go and visit family.

SARAH VINE: A 6,400-word masterclass in manipulation… Meghan’s latest interview is an Exocet missile tipped with poison and aimed at the heart of the British monarchy

The comparison is striking. The simple black turtleneck. The pared-down make-up. The gaze, staring boldly into the camera. No, not the Duchess of Sussex, pictured for her latest interview with a U.S. magazine; but Princess Diana, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier in the autumn of 1991 for Vogue, and later used on the cover of a re-issue of Andrew Morton’s book Diana: Her True Story.

It can’t possibly be intentional, can it? After all, today marks 25 years since Diana’s tragic death in Paris, at the age of 36.

Surely not even Meghan, however subconsciously, would seek to troll the Royal Family on such a solemn occasion. Yet there it is.

And let’s face it, she’s done it before. Who could forget the timing of the Oprah Winfrey interview, aired only a month before the Duke of Edinburgh passed away in April 2021? Nothing and no one, not even the ailing health of Her Majesty’s consort of 70 years, could be allowed to stand in the way of Meghan speaking her famous truth.

In truth, though, the similarities are only superficial. The composition and styling are, it’s true, very alike. But while Diana’s smile is slightly shy, she nevertheless gazes warmly at the viewer, her eyes dancing with mischief.

By contrast, Meghan’s half-open mouth is more of a smirk. And her beautiful warm brown eyes are somehow as cold as ice.

The Duchess of Sussex’s latest interview — 6,400 words of faux sincerity and fawning praise delivered from her lofty £11.2 million perch in the hills of Montecito, is an Exocet missile tipped with poison calculated to strike at the heart of the British monarchy.

It’s a threat so open, so blatantly obvious she might as well have stuck a horse’s head in the Queen’s bed.

Every line drips with menace, real or implied. Even her supposed moments of vulnerability are loaded with malice. At one point the interviewer, Allison P. Davis, asks her why she and Prince Harry ended up in California; why they felt they had to walk away from the UK; why they were unable to reach some sort of compromise, ‘even though several other members of the family do that exact thing’.

‘A pause as she looks down and inspects her hands,’ writes Davis. ‘I don’t know,’ she says, casting a knowing gaze out into the middle distance.’

Obligingly, Davis fills in the gaps. Meghan’s ‘supernova (biracial, divorcée, self-made millionaire, clothes-horse) presence’ was a threat to the monarchy, highlighting the way it ‘was becoming irrelevant to a younger generation — and worse, the ways that it was deeply flawed (and racist)’.

She was too sophisticated, too independent, with ‘desires and goals and a fan base’. In other words, far too cool and fabulous to fit in with the fusty old royals.

Like everything Meghan does these days, this interview is a masterclass in manipulation, a carefully orchestrated, professionally executed exercise in brand-building.

Meghan the philanthropist, handing out lunch to homeless people on the school run; Meghan the mother, teaching her little boy his manners; Meghan the wife, her metaphorical roots intertwined with Harry’s. It’s all there, every last cliché. But perhaps most importantly it’s Meghan the tragic, misunderstood, maligned heroine. Meghan as Cinderella, cast out by the twin Ugly Sisters of the British media and the Establishment, her princess dreams in tatters, her dress stained with silent tears.

And yet, despite her suffering, her noble, beautiful heart is simply bursting with forgiveness.

‘I think forgiveness is really important. It takes a lot more energy to not forgive,’ she says wisely. ‘But it takes a lot of effort to forgive.’

And then, the sting in the tail: ‘I’ve really made an active effort, especially knowing that I can say anything,’ she says, her voice full of meaning.’

There she goes again with the horse’s head. Don Corleone himself could not have delivered a more elegantly unequivocal threat. And she’s even trained Harry to do it. Davis is treated to a tour of their shared home office in the presence of the barefoot Duke.

‘Most people that I know and many of my family, they aren’t able to work and live together,’ Harry says in passing as I take a peek at their command center (sic). He enunciates family with a vocal eye roll.’ A ‘vocal eye roll’, eh? Good boy, Harry, pat on the head. Give that man a treat. But back to Meghan (for who else is there?). Is she a living saint or an angel — or perhaps both?

In South Africa, she informs us, she is worshipped like Nelson Mandela.

When she married into the Royal Family, the people of that great nation apparently ‘rejoiced in the streets the same way we did when Mandela was freed from prison’.

Goodness. Who knew that overcoming apartheid was as easy as marrying a rich man with a title? Such humility, and so down to earth with it.

Now, of course, she is the undisputed Duchess of Montecito; but, at first, she didn’t dare to dream of such splendour.

‘We didn’t have jobs, so we just were not going to come and see this house. It’s like when I was younger and you’re window shopping — it’s like, I don’t want to go and look at all the things I can’t afford. That doesn’t feel good.’

Poor Harry and Meghan, their little cold noses pressed up against the electric gates of Montecito, with nowhere but go but the 25,000 square foot Mediterranean-style mansion in Beverly Hills (complete with hot and cold running staff and security detail) loaned to them by the actor Tyler Perry. Truly, they have suffered.

On and on it goes, each ‘revelation’ more delusional than the last. The tragedy, of course, is that people will believe this narcissistic drivel. The world is full of idiots who think that the Queen is a lizard and that Princess Diana was the victim of an MI6 assassination plot, so really this is no great leap of faith.

Indeed, it is perhaps no coincidence that this interview should coincide with the anniversary of the Princess of Wales’s tragic death in a car accident, 25 years ago today.

Not even Meghan would dare draw an overt comparison; but the timing can’t be overlooked. There is nothing and no one this woman will not exploit in pursuit of her own advantage.

In common, I suspect, with the Royal Family as a whole, I had hoped that once Meghan had obtained the life she desired — that is to say a private existence away from the cameras and her obligations as a working royal — she would, if not quite extend the hand of friendship then at least relent in her attacks on the Queen and her family.

But it’s increasingly clear that she has no such intention. If anything, she seems hellbent on revenge.

No wonder she’s planning a return to social media: no better place to fling around vague and unsubstantiated accusations which spread like wildfire.

She is building an identity, a career, based solely on casting herself as the innocent victim of her wicked in-laws. She is ruthlessly exploiting the modern obsession with identity politics to feed negative stereotypes about Britain, and turning it to her advantage.

The late Princess Diana, for all her struggles, had genuine reason to be aggrieved with the Royal Family. Although many of the paranoias that haunted her turned out to be largely fabricated, her marriage to Prince Charles was, indubitably, based on false pretences

All the while, of course, continuing to enjoy the privileges of the status and titles she claims to despise.

The late Princess Diana, for all her struggles, had genuine reason to be aggrieved with the Royal Family.

Although many of the paranoias that haunted her turned out to be largely fabricated, her marriage to Prince Charles was, indubitably, based on false pretences.

Meghan may fancy herself in the same league, but the truth is there’s no comparison. Diana suffered much greater hardship, both privately and publicly, than Meghan ever did.

And yet while Diana did, in her own way, strike back against The Firm, she never sought to bring the royals to their knees. She was fundamentally too kind a person. Not so Meghan.

Make no mistake, this woman doesn’t just want to hold the feet of the Royal Family to the fire — she wants to burn the House of Windsor to the ground and dance on its ashes. The awful tragedy is that, with the help of Prince Harry, she might just succeed.
