In a brutal takedown of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, talkRADIO royal correspondent Rupert Bell told host Mike Graham how the Royal Gamily were never part of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s future plans as the couple reportedly turned down offers from the Queen to have an active role in the Commonwealth. Mr Bell claimed the Queen was trying to be as “accommodating as possible”. He insisted Meghan was not prepared to do the “hard yards with being a member of the Royal Family” and that she could not distinguish between celebrity and duty.
The royal correspondent told the show how when Harry and Meghan married the Queen had tried to be as “accommodating as possible” and suggested they could go to Australia and take up an “active role within the Commonwealth”.
But he added: “Unfortunately, they decided against that and what we seem to be discovering is the Meghan and Harry roadshow had an agenda of its own.
“This is the sad fact, the Royal Family were not part of their plans and it appears Meghan took one look at it once the fairy dust settled from the wedding and went ‘hey oh I don’t like this’.”
He went on to give context to his point by saying while royal life “may look glamorous” it is quite the opposite.

He added: “Honestly, it’s not exactly a barrel of laughs when you’re going around opening things.”
Mr Bell added how the role as a royal “requires a sense of duty, it’s not celebrity in the modern sense of the word, it’s a duty” adding that “celebrities like to do things on their own terms” while Royals not.
He said that “unfortunately for Meghan being part of the royal family became too tough” and accepted how there “may have been issues”.
But in a damming conclusion he said: “Ultimately, she wasn’t prepared to do the hard yards with being a member of the royal family.”

The damming comments come as Piers Morgan sat down with Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson on Monday evening to discuss the aftermath of his reaction to Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
He said: “I was told that you have got to believe Meghan Markle and if you do not believe what she is saying, you are a racist.
“I just find that impossible to believe, that you would have two people in the Palace who would be that callous to a woman telling them that she was suicidal.”
He added: “If I have to fall on my sword for expressing an honestly held opinion about Meghan Markle and that diatribe of bilge that she came out within that interview, so be it.”
