Was Meghan Markle secretly obsessed with Prince William and the royal family in her college days before meeting Prince Harry? One tabloid is reporting it this week.
Meghan Markle claimed in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that she had no idea what she was getting herself into when she married into the British Royal Family. In fact, before meeting Prince Harry, Markle claimed she had never even researched him.
“Thank God I didn’t know a lot about the family,” Markle mused, “Thank God I hadn’t researched. I would’ve been so in my head about it.”
However, according to a new allegation from In Touch, Markle may not have been totally truthful. According to the magazine, Markle was obsessed with the royals in college and had a strong crush on Prince William, not Prince Harry.
According to the outlet, an insider told,
“Meghan’s friends claim she was obsessed with the royal family,” adding, “Meghan had a poster of Prince William on her dorm wall! She was in love with William — not Harry.”
The magazine claims Markle’s fascination began when she was 15, citing a photo of her in front of Buckingham Palace when she was 15. The insider reveals, “According to her college friends, Meghan loved the royals and she seemed to have a goal: become part of the family.”
According to the magazine, Markle’s attempts to snatch William were failed when he and Kate Middleton married, so she went with plan B.
The insider explains, “Since William was now unattainable, Meghan set her sights on Harry, and she became a member of the royal family, except with William’s brother.”
According to the source, while Markle and Harry moved quickly after meeting, the magazine insisted Markle waited to talk about her crush on Harry’s sibling until after their wedding. “She was either embarrassed, or it suddenly didn’t seem important, or she was afraid of what his reaction would be.”
According to the publication, Harry was furious with Markle because she didn’t notify him sooner. Middleton was also disappointed that she didn’t come honest with Prince Harry earlier in their relationship, according to the insider.
The insider demonstrates, “Kate has always been very protective of Harry.” On a final note, the source adds, “If Meghan had had the opportunity to meet William all those years ago, this all could have turned out very differently.”
Is it true that Markle had a secret crush on Prince William all along? Obviously not. Let’s break down this story, which is plainly a piece of fiction. The tabloid relies only on the word of anonymous “insiders” who allegedly got their information from claimed “friends” of Markle. The tabloid is clearly attempting to distance itself from these accusations to quickly retract them.
There’s also no reason to doubt Markle’s claim that she didn’t know anything about the royal family before becoming a member of it. Her inability to acclimate to royal life just adds to this.
According to GossipCop, we shouldn’t be surprised that In Touch would publish such an attacking report about Meghan Markle as this is not for the first time.
