The Duchess stepped away from royal duties in 2020

Meghan Markle’s decision to depart royal duties has backfired as she would have been the planet’s ‘most popular person’ had she remained, according to Lady Colin Campbell.

The Duchess of Sussex, along with her husband, Prince Harry, stepped away from royal duties and flocked to California in 2020.

Lady C believes Meghan has failed to learn from her mistakes and would not accept that she has made the wrong decision.

“I don’t think Meghan is capable of regret”, she said.

“She isn’t Kate, her personality type is not that of somebody who learns from their mistakes.

“She blames everybody else for her errors.”Prince Andrew has been omitted from the Royal Family’s Easter social media pictures.


Lady C added: “She’s not capable of learning a lesson, which is tragic.

“For her personal character and personality flaws, she would have now been the most popular human being on Earth.

“Catherine wouldn’t be. Had she played with a straight bat, she would have knocked Catherine for six.

“Instead, Catherine has knocked her for a six.”

The Sussexes have had mixed fortunes since leaving royal life behind with lucrative commercial projects being coupled with criticism for attacks on members of the Firm.

But just over a week ago, the couple made it clear they were fully supportive of Princess Kate after her bombshell cancer diagnosis announcement.

They released a short statement a few hours after the Princess’s medical development was made public.

Harry and Meghan said they hoped Kate and her family would be able to go through the upcoming period together ‘privately and in peace’.

The future queen began a course of “preventative chemotherapy” late in February but is said to have a positive mindset for her recovery and is in good spirits, describing herself as “well and getting stronger every day”.

Last month, Harry returned to the UK after making an emergency dash from the US to see the King following his cancer diagnosis.

The duke cleared his diary and made the journey alone, with Meghan and their children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet remaining at home in California.

But there was no reconciliation between Harry and his brother the Prince of Wales during the visit, after the duke spent around 45 minutes at Clarence House seeing Charles.
