Meghan Markle has been heavily praised by celebrity biographer Sean Smith, who claims the Duchess has one thing other royals don’t. In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk he even suggested senior royals are attempting to copy Meghan, but it just “doesn’t work”.
Mr Smith told this website Meghan is relatable “to so many people” and highlighted the Duchess’ key attribute, which was clearly seen in one of her final royal engagements before stepping down.
He said: “That visit she did to that school in Dagenham on her farewell tour said everything you needed to know about the approachability of Meghan Markle that the others just do not have.
“They are very much trying to operate the Meghan Markle playbook but it just doesn’t ring true to me it doesn’t work.”
The celebrity biographer further pointed out Meghan carries out a powerful amount of popular appeal, something the Royal Family failed to capitalise on.
He said: The Royal Family really missed a trick where Meghan was concerned.
“She could have done a lot for the Royal Family.”
Mr Smith added: “They missed out on Meghan, I think there is no question of that.
“She is, or was, relatable to so many people, so many of the population in a way that the other members aren’t; they are an entitled bunch.
