Their ranks may be dwindling, but Mr. and Mrs. Meghan Markle do have a few key supporters left on the other side of the Pond. What their fabulously rehearsed "fly-on-the-wall" documentary set in stone is who was gone for good: Wills and Kate. The poor Waleses were absolutely slandered. In fact, the only realistic thing about the whole show was the visceral hatred the Sussexes had for the pair.

Their ranks may be dwindling, but Mr. and Mrs. Meghan Markle do have a few key supporters left on the other side of the Pond. What their fabulously rehearsed “fly-on-the-wall” documentary set in stone is who was gone for good: Wills and Kate. The poor Waleses were absolutely slandered. In fact, the only realistic thing about the whole show was the visceral hatred the Sussexes had for the pair. Harry despises his big brother almost as much as Jeremy Clarkson hates Meghan, and would certainly see him strung up in the streets, but of course, you can’t print that in Britain.
Team Windsor may be pretty strong in numbers, but the “we-just-want-to-be-normal-but-don’t-you-dare-forget-the-title” team do have two major players: the Princesses of York. Princess Eugenie, the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson has always been, unapologetically, team Sussex. Throughout the whole Megxit fallout, Eugenie has been publicly spotted with Meghan and Harry and even made a few cameo appearances in the new Netflix doc. In the first episode, which debuted two weeks ago, the royal is seen partying alongside Meghan and Harry the night before their star-crossed romance was made public.
Her older sister Beatrice is a bit more complex. She keeps to herself, and usually offers the same stance on public relations that her dearest granny did. Keeping schtum. But now, she has become the latest victim of being royally screwed by the disloyal duke and duchess, as it comes to light that it was Princess Beatrice that, intentionally or unintentionally, gave Meghan and Harry the go-ahead to film in the Queen’s private residence. After the monarch said no.
According to one royal source it was Princess Beatrice, Harry’s cousin, that let them take the Netflix film crew into the Queen’s outside Wendy house; what we don’t yet know is whether she was aware of what was being filmed or why. It was there that the duke and duchess laughed and smiled candidly for the Netflix cameras, sipping tea and sitting in child-sized chairs. Such fun! Perfectly sized for the delinquent toddlers.
The building is twenty four feet long, eight feet deep, with five feet high rooms and was gifted to the Queen on her sixth birthday as a present from the people of Wales. Perhaps most surprising is that the Sussexes would stoop so low as to even enter the tiny residence, after complaining last week at the size of Nottingham Cottage, the grace-and-favor residence they were gifted by the Queen. The pair couldn’t believe how short the Nottingham Cottage ceilings were, and Oprah Winfrey even offered her two-pence, saying “no one would ever believe” that Harry and Meghan were made to live there.
Y Bwthyn Bach, which means ‘The Little Cottage,’ in Welsh, was given to the Queen, so now falls under the King’s Crown Estate. But in 2010, the late Queen passed custodianship of the house to her Princess Beatrice, who organized a year-long renovation to the house before inviting journalist Andrew Marr inside for his three-part BBC series, The Diamond Queen, in 2012. It was the first time television cameras had been allowed inside the house, which is usually reserved for younger members of the family.
As Beatrice was fiercely protective of her granny, it seems unlikely that she knew what the Sussexes were up to when she granted them access. It is even more unlikely that she knew they’d be smirking over their tea as they counted their cash from the inside scoop of one of the Queen’s most private residences… after the Queen had said no. Maybe Beatrice will now learn from her kind-heartedness. Nothing is ever sacred, especially in Hollywood.
