Meghan Markle is struggling to settle into the’ extraordinarily arcane and unusual world’ of the Royal Family, an expert has claimed.
Author Penny Junor says the mum-to-be is still getting used to the huge change from a independent American actress to the Duchess of Sussex.
She believes she needs to readjust from her old competitive world, where she worked to her own time frames, to her new position in the UK.
Speaking to Sky News, Penny said: "I think that life must be very difficult for Meghan. She’s had a completely different life.
"She didn’t really know the British family or how it operated or what her life would be like.
"And she is clearly used to be her own woman, operating at her own hours and behaving the way she’s used to to get on in a very, very competitive world.
"And she’s now not in that competitive world, she’s in an extraordinarily arcane and unusual world now.
"And I think she perhaps hasn’t yet settled into it.
"But she’s not really being given much chance now."
Meghan is facing anther difficult week after her dad Thomas Markle gave another TV interview, and she is now holding crisis meetings with her closest confidantes.
Mr Markle, who has not spoken to Meghan since she married Prince Harry in May, pleaded for the Queen to get involved to help heal the rift.
Speaking to Good Morning Britain he said: "I’m very disappointed by it. I’m not sure why it’s happening and I’m waiting, I’m reaching out.
"I would appreciate anything she could do. I would think she would want to resolve family problems.
"All families, royal or otherwise, are the same and they should all be together – certainly around the holidays."
Palace sources said the royal household had become "enraged and yet exhausted" with Thomas and believe he has "gone a step too far" by trying to draw the Queen into the row.
A senior palace source said: "The Queen is a dignified woman.
"Even if she disagreed with the way her grandson’s wife or indeed her staff were dealing with the matter, she would certainly not become involved on this level."
