Meghan Markle’s supporters and anti-monarchists are having a field day trolling the British royal family after a US State Department spokesperson rejected claims made by a close ally of Queen Elizabeth and her sister Princess Margaret.
Lady Anne Glenconner, a former lady-in-waiting to the late Queen’s youngest sister and a close friend to the late Queen Elizabeth, accused former US Secretary of State John Kerry of speaking about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during the coronation of King Charles earlier this year.
She said Kerry admitted Americans felt “very, very sad for Prince Harry” when she struck up a conversation with him.
She was speaking at The Barnes BookFest when she made the claim.
“I feel very sad for Harry because, at the King’s Coronation, I happened to sit next to somebody called John Kerry, who ran for president.
“He wanted to be president. And he came over with Mrs. Biden, because he is into green things, and we were sitting with the King’s friends, and I said to him, ‘What do you think in America about Harry and Meghan?’ and he just said, ‘We all feel very, very sorry for Harry.’
“So I think I can just leave it at that.”
The spokesperson said Kerry had no recollection of the alleged conversation and insisted he would not be drawn into public discussions of a private nature.
The statement said: “Any implication that Secretary Kerry was commenting on the marriage would be wrong.
Some critics said the royal family was embarrassed on a global scale after the US official issued the abovementioned statement.
They accused the royal family of being used to putting out such claims and expecting no pushback out of respect for their position.
“Their desperation to use Americans to denigrate Meghan is so cringe, time to get over it,” said Meghan Markle’s sympathizer.
