Royal author Angela Levin told talkRADIO that Meghan Markle could not cope with being on the sidelines during her time as a royal. Ms Levin warned that the Duchess of Sussex is now trying to outsmart the Royal Family by timing her appearances to coincide with royal birthdays or engagements.
Ms Levin said: “They say in the book that she wanted to be on the frontline, she was on the sidelines and could not cope with that.
“She wanted to push everyone out of the way because she has enormous confidence on one level that she can run the Palace much better than anyone else and that she can bring in a wider range of people, younger people and people of all colours.
“That might well be so, the latter one, but you can’t expect to arrive in the greatest monarchy in the world, the British monarchy, and after two or three months decide you know how to run it better.
“It just does not work like that, so she is trying all the time to outsmart them.

“You can see it when there is anything going on, when there is a birthday, an important engagement, she wants to smash it or divert attention.
“She has tremendous power to do this, all the press seem delighted to show what a sort of bullish, determined, ambitious woman she is.”
Last week two royal commentators stated that Meghan Markle’s expectation that the Duchess of Cambridge would “show her the ropes” of royal life was unrealistic.
During Channel 5’s documentary ‘Meghan and Harry: The New Revelations’ royal experts Emily Andrews and Kate Nicholl discussed the relationship between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton.
“If you look at it from the Cambridges’ point of view, they don’t know this woman at all.
“From their point of view, they absolutely did welcome her into the family.
“William and Kate invited Meghan and Harry to apartment 1A, Kate met Meghan pretty early on in the relationship.
“I think from William and Kate’s point of view they did try and help as much as possible, but they were in a very different stage of their lives.”
