Royal biographer and Vanity Fair contributing editor, Sally Bedell Smith has contemplated Meghan Markle might have missed the limelight of Hollywood until the former American actress stepped back as a senior royal, on the basis of her 20 years association with the British royal family in correspondence with “The Firm.”

Smith recently opened up to Vanity Fair about the former “Suits” star’s unpreparedness to sacrifice her career for fitting into the British royalty.

Redifining Meghan: The Submissive Halve

She conjectured, “In entering the royal family, which provides innumerable advantages and perks in exchange for doing official duties and charitable work, you really have to renounce a lot of things that may have meant a lot to you and dedicate yourself to an institution that’s 1,000 years old. It may be that Meghan didn’t see it in those terms. It is the 21st century, and she was highly unusual in having been a successful professional woman who was putting aside that whole part of her life.” And went on, “It seems now that she really regrets having had to give that up, and what she was expected to do in the royal family didn’t compare with what she had been accustomed to.”

Smith drew the reference of Prince Philip in this regard, elaborating “Prince Philip had to give up his career in the navy, and it was a sacrifice for him. He could’ve gone right up the line and become an admiral because he had great leadership qualities, but he gave that up. He really had to. He was already married, but he knew he would have to.”

Explaining about the duchess’ sense of duty and responsibility, she added, “We can envision what Meghan can do. They could set up a production company. She’s savvy. She’s worked on a TV series. She’s worked in movies. She knows how it works. She’s smart. She’s experienced. But Harry was trained as a helicopter pilot. That’s his professional training. He didn’t go to college. He could maybe be a motivational speaker. He certainly can speak passionately about the causes that he believes in. But unless he is more than a figurehead, I’m not sure that will be something meaningful. I think it’s a real issue for him — what he is professionally capable of doing”.

She safeguarded the Duchess further saying, “Now, look, this is a world where people who have no professional credentials become Instagram influencers. The Kardashians are famous for being famous, but I think Harry’s above that. And that’s not the sort of thing that would make him feel good… or make people feel good about him or the family that he belongs to.”

Riding the twist: Splitting Races

Smith also admitted her wonder in the couple’s decision to leave after less than two years of being married, splitting their priorities between two countries.
“In talking to people close to the royal family [it was clear] they really bent over backward to accept Meghan. The way they incorporated an African American bishop giving the homily at the wedding and had the gospel choir — they had a lot of elements that were very symbolic of the blending of these two very different cultures and that was the most visible evidence of it.

She continued, “The queen also bucked tradition by inviting Meghan to spend Christmas 2017 with the royal family in spite of the fact that Meghan and Harry were not yet married.… I remember thinking that — because Meghan’s mother was in LA and she grew up in LA — they might spend two months in California a year, the way that the queen spends a few months in the winter in Sandringham, and Charles does in Scotland. But I guess what really surprised me was Harry’s willingness to leave the royal family, and to leave England for all practical purposes.”

The universal countdown amidst royal suspension

The couple shared in Instagram, “We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.”
