Queen ‘made the mistake’ of treating Meghan Markle like a ‘routine royal’

Queen Elizabeth II made the "mistake" of treating Meghan Markle like the "routine royal" she was "never going to be," a royal biographer has claimed.

Newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared their first kiss on the steps of Windsor’s St George’s Chapel in 2018.

Suits star Meghan quickly settled into her role beside Prince Harry, but it wasn’t long before cracks started to show in The Firm.

In his new book, Battle of The Brothers, royal author Robert Lacey claims the Palace made one big mistake initiating Meghan into the family.

He claims the Queen treated Meghan like a "routine royal" instead of sitting down and talking with her about the things she was interested in.

Lacey said the Royals could have avoided the explosive Megxit fall out from the beginning if they had "sat down with her at the start."

Meghan and Prince Harry made the decision to step down from the Royal Family in early 2020 after spending the holidays in Canada with son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

After the couple returned to the UK to fulfil their final duties to the Queen, Meghan and Harry moved to Los Angeles.

Speaking to the Daily Mail ahead of the book's release, Lacey claims "things might have been different" if they had realised she was "never" going to be just another member of the Royal Family.

He told the Mail: "There is only one self-made millionaire in the Royal Family and that is Meghan Markle.

"If they had sat down with her at the start and said, “Let’s talk about the things you are interested in”, things might have been different.

"They just sent her off to watch the Queen opening the Mersey Bridge.

"There is nothing wrong with that, but they made the mistake of dealing with the spare’s wife thinking she was just a routine royal. She was never going to be a routine royal."
