Kate Middleton’s lackeys are at it again.
The Duchess of Fragility’s supporters have once again decided to scapegoat Meghan Markle, this time laying the blame at her feet for Middleton’s disastrous “Tatler” cover story.
Never has so much been made about so little. And blaming Markle for a British magazine’s cover story is the height of absurdity.
Having failed to get sympathy every other way, Kate Middleton defenders are now claiming that the “Tatler” cover story was a hit piece orchestrated by Meghan Markle.
[Anna] Pasternak’s article caused immense unnecessary pain for Kate and its central claim that she felt trapped and unhappy was wildly untrue. Pasternak is sticking to her story and saying her sources are good.
She is very well connected in the US. She is friends with Vanessa Mulroney who used to work at Tatler and now lives in Canada. And Vanessa’s sister-in-law Jessica is Meghan’s best friend. It’s intriguing.
But there’s no “intrigue” in people who are in the media being professionally acquainted with one another. The bigger scandal is how Kate Middleton managed to center Pasternak’s entire career around her.
Anna Pasternak isn’t some second-rate stringer — she’s a best-selling author, the niece of Boris Pasternak, and best known for her revelations about James Hewitt, Princess Diana’s lover.
So Pasternak was making her influence known in royal circles while Meghan Markle was still at Northwestern University. But suddenly we’re supposed to believe that an American actress had more pull over a British royal journalist than actual royals themselves? Please.
But then again, do we expect anything less from a country that vilifies Meghan Markle, but seems perfectly okay with Prince Andrew’s cavorts with Jeffrey Epstein?
The allegation that Meghan Markle is secretly behind the “Tatler” story would have been more plausible… if Meghan Markle was depicted as a saint amongst women in the article.
If Markle was made to look good at Kate Middleton’s expense, the scapegoating claims would at least make sense. But the cover story was far from complimentary to the Duchess of Sussex.
In the story, Meghan and Harry were blamed for being “selfish” for fobbing off to Los Angeles.
And let’s not forget the line in the “Tatler” story that claimed that Middleton could no longer take her children to school because Meghan and Harry dared to move to the City of Angels – as if Meghan Markle was hired to be the Windsor nanny.
Did we forget already? It was only a week ago, after all.
Take that “L” like a lady, Kate Middleton, and stop letting your “royal sources” blame Meghan Markle for your problems. Accountability is a beautiful thing, especially when you’re going to be Queen Consort one day.
