When Meghan Markle reached out to British sex workers last month, the gesture was likened to past philanthropic campaigns spearheaded by her mother-in-law Camilla Parker Bowles.
Like Meghan, Camilla prides herself on championing causes that other public figures prefer to look away from.
So when Meghan made it clear that she intends to focus on less photo-op-friendly causes like addiction, mental health, and the dangers faced by sex workers, it was widely assumed that she and Camilla enjoy a close relationship with a foundation of shared values.
But according to a new report from Radar Online, that’s very much not the case.
As you’re likely aware, Meghan is feuding with just about everyone these days.
The reports of the Duchess of Sussex locking horns with Kate Middleton have gained the most tabloid traction, but there have also been reports of Meghan feuding with Prince William, Prince Charles, and just about everyone else in the Royal Family, with the possible exception of the Queen.
Now, it seems Camilla can be added to Meg’s ever-growing enemies list.
And according to Radar, this feud is getting uglier by the day.
“The drama with Meghan and Kate is nothing compared to what’s going on with Camilla,” an insider tells the site.
“Camilla doesn’t really talk to Meghan,” the source adds.
“She is snobbiest and least friendly.”
Apparently, Camilla’s complaints are the same as the other royal traditionalists who think Meg’s not deserving of her title.
Bowles reportedly doesn’t like that Meghan is American, a former actress, and famously headstrong.
(There have been widespread reports that Meg is being treated unfairly by so many Brits due to her race, but we’ll leave that speculation for another time.)
“Camilla even told her ‘this is real life and you’re not an actress playing a role,’” says one tipster.
“Meghan has tried everything to get Camilla to warm up to her and nothing has worked.
“She wants to be close to her, but Camilla isn’t allowing it.”
As Charles’ second wife after Princess Di, Camilla is certainly accustomed to being treated unfairly by the British press.
One would think that she and Meg would be able to bond over that shared experience.
But apparently, Camilla’s the type of bully who likes to pay it forward.
