We reported earlier this week on the publishing of another trashy tell-all aimed at Meghan Markle, the British media’s favorite target.
With the death of Queen Elizabeth II, there was evidently some speculation that certain Meg-obsesses could momentarily turn their focus to someone else.
Instead, the Duchess of Sussex has received more criticism than ever, with the British media going berserk over everything from false reports that she was wearing a wire at the Queen’s memorial ceremony to complaints of Meghan grasping Harry’s hand at the funeral.
The first chapters of Valentine Low’s upcoming book Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown have been released, adding to this week’s terrible foolishness.
The publication of Low’s book, which isn’t scheduled to be released in the United States until June 2023, appears to be a plan to capitalize on the most current anti-Meghan sentiment.
Despite the fact that his first name is properly chosen and he’s certainly never felt love, perhaps the ironically named Low is hoping that he’ll have time to hire a lawyer and defend himself against the inevitable libel suit before Meg gets her hands on a copy.
We’ve talked about Low’s claim that during Meghan’s brief stay in the UK, palace workers severely insulted her behind her back.
Low evidently blamed Meghan for this rather than the white people who spat at her anytime she exited a room.
More ludicrous charges about the Duchess are made in today’s Cosmo snippet, this time about the start of her romance with Prince Harry.
According to Low, Meghan put pressure on Harry to declare their love to the world after only a few months of dating.
“She was saying, ‘If you don’t put out a statement indicating I’m your girlfriend, I’m going to break up with you,’” a source told the author.
“‘She’s going to dump me,’ he exclaimed, scared.”
At the time, Kensington Palace’s communications director, Jason Knauf, was assigned to “confirm that Meghan was his girlfriend and critique the racist and sexist overtones of some of the media coverage.”
Low created a cover narrative because he clearly does not believe a woman of color could ever feel threatened by racist statements made by online trolls.
Meghan, as a member of the British tabloid press, must observe the following guidelines:
All “journalists” and media must explain away the Duchess’ every move as the consequence of cartoonishly cruel, bad-faith reasoning.
The fact that the connection was made public and Meghan was exposed to a slew of heinous harassment is, of course, the most plausible explanation for Harry and Knauf’s behavior.
She is still bullied today, tragically, but the bullies are finally being punished for their actions.
