A Murky Mucky Madam

Mendacious minx Meghan Markle increasingly comes across as nothing but personally ambitious and out of touch with reality suggests Matthew Steeples

 

The engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was something I initially thought no bad thing. I went, in fact, as far as to laud Markle’s “independent success” and “energy,” but now realise that I got this mendacious minx totally and utterly wrong.

 

Markle’s mistakes began when she tried to present herself as a cross between Mother Theresa and Diana, Princess of Wales. She touched the hands of children and told them they “could achieve anything.” She promised to “inspire” but then in wearing a £56,000 dress for her engagement photo she illustrated her true colours and showed herself to anything but the “down to earth girl” she had previously been lauded as. By now Barbara Amiel-like in her “extravagance knows no bounds” behaviour, the soon-to-be newest member of the royal family, it has been suggested, is set to order a wedding dress costing around £400,000 and will allegedly spend £120,000 on a honeymoon also. These are hardly the actions of someone who describes themselves as “ordinary” and “balanced” and are hardly the choices of a woman who once remarked: “I never want to lose touch with reality.”

 

More recently, in refusing to invite relatives including her disabled half-sister Samantha Grant to the forthcoming wedding, “I’m a sucker for a compliment” Markle has generated publicity she could have done without. Aside from ignoring her bankrupt father – and I accept that all families have rifts – she has caused Grant to go ahead with the publication of a book named The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister [she is not, by the way, referring to Princess Michael of Kent] and caused the media to go into overdrive in searching out other disgruntled family members. If, Markle had just them at her £32 million wedding party, they’d have kept shtum and been lost amongst her 3,440 guests.

 

Yesterday, the feminist Germaine Greer perfectly summed up Markle in a Mrs Merton on Debbie McGee kind of way. She asked: “Why would a girl born in poverty marry a man with 53 million quid?” and she is right. ‘Murky Mucky’ – as I now refer to her – is a girl with an agenda and that agenda is sadly apparently simply fame and money.

    1. Im hoping not.. and I would like Harry to be really happy. he seems bewitched by her as many have said… but she drops people along the way to her moving up the ladder…. even her best friend of thirty years is no more and she sat beside her outside Buckingham Palace when they were teenagers.. seems Ms Markle uses people for her own ends then rejects them..

  1. Send her Down Under!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is a naughty girl and I need to get her into order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pwoah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She needs to be tamed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Only I can do the job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pwoah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Well done Matthew for daring to speak the naked truth ! You are not the only one who has seen through her grab all agenda disguised as charity work and al, but hardly anyone wants to express their doubts and disappointment with Harry’s choice as she/her PR team would immediately put forward a race or class card. I am sorry Harry has been oblivious to the true colours of his bride to be

    1. You are quite right. She is an operator in my view and ruthless. I will NOT be watching any of the coverage of this ridiculous charade.

  3. I find this write up quite distasteful, do you actually know this woman, if not try and do a bit research on her rather than just spewing ignorance. The lady you think was faking her generosity or acting acting like princess Di or mother Theresa before she met Harry was actually a UNICEF ambassador going to war torn countries to meet displaced children ( those calling her names what have you all done for humanity in your lifetime apart sitting behind your computers and spewing nonsense about someone you don’t know ), and on the point on buying an expensive wedding dresss I don’t believe it’s the tax payers money and since she has made her own money she can spend it as she wishes.

    As for these so called feminist women who only turn to feminism when it suits them .. shame on them by they actions they will be exposed.

    1. You are perfectly entitled to your view but I do not think £32 million spent on this wedding is an appropriate use of largely taxpayer’s money. As for Ms Markle, her conduct thus far has been anything but impressive. I will not be watching this charade.

      1. How is it tax payers money? I believe the palace said they will be paying for the wedding from their own coffers … And what has she done in your opinion which isn’t impressive? And like you said each is entitled to their own opinion but sometimes it’s better to put out facts rather than spew ignorance and cast insinuations at people you know little of.

        1. The security bill is not being covered by the family but by the nation. It is appalling to waste so much when there are people dying on our streets. A society that encourages wasting £32 million on a wedding is a disgraceful one in my view whilst we still have so many homeless.

          As regards this woman, she can hardly be as “down to earth” as she claims when she thinks it OK to wear two dresses costing £450,000. It is gross and ridiculous.

    2. I agree with Matthew and most others on this one.
      When you say she has made he own money and can spend it anyway she likes, that’s true, but the cost of this whole thing is absolutely outrageous, just the taxpayer security bill alone will run into millions. Do you think somebody spending £400,000 on a bloody dress is putting out a good message, when we have homeless people sleeping in cardboard boxes, under bridges a few miles away?
      If you think spending £32 million on a wedding party is appropriate use of taxpayer’s money, you’re deranged, and I say taxpayer’s money, because the majority of this shindig will be borne by the good old taxpayer. Megan Markles net worth is around £5 – 6 million so she won’t be footing the bill.
      I’m afraid dear old Harry has become besotted with her; they say love is blind, and this whole charade will most definatly end in tears.

      1. Will she be the first person spending that much on a wedding dress, if you don’t have it don’t judge those who have money and want to splash it on themselves…

        I believe Harry knows what he is doing and doesn’t need your condescending and judgemental opinion about his wedding to the lady he truly loves and decided to make his wife.

  4. I agree with you Matthew.
    Nice easy way to get £25 million.
    Nothing good to watch on the telly that day, but then I never bother and I won’t bother then..

    1. I’d rather watch “Homes Under The Hammer” and that’s saying something. This charade is boring me to death.

  5. Wonder if William and Kate have thought of the possibility Megan will eventually become queen if William is knocked off. Ambitious British royalty been bumping each other off for centuries.

  6. HRH brings up a good point. Do we know her? No, but neither does her RABID fan base. What we know is what her people try to spin; but what people are beginning to pick up are the nuances of her “words” vs her “actions.” I was quite happy for her UNTIL I saw her engagement interview. Things did not add up, so I went hunting for sources to back up her claims. What we discovered were not collabouration, but more questions, so we dedicated a whole page to her on our website. The RABID fan base will not investigate, they will continue to admire from afar. There are already cracks showing, but only the most ardent of observers would even notice. Contrary to “myth” the taxpayers paid for security. According to CNBC (American broadcast) it was 94% of the total wedding cost.
