He claimed the Duchess was “less interested in cutting ribbons, opening hospitals and doing all the downright boring things that members of the royal family often have to do”.
“She loved fame. She liked the attention.
“Although she appreciated the attention, Meghan did not understand the point of all the wanderings, shaking hands with countless strangers. »
