Meghan Markle thought she would be « Beyoncé from the UK »

Who rules the world? Not Meghan Markle.

The Duchess of Sussex thought she was going to ‘be the Beyoncé of the UK’ after marrying into the Royal Family – but was soon stifled by rigid palace procedure, according to a bombshell new book.

The American ‘Suits’ actress’ misconceptions ultimately made her unhappy and she walked away from Buckingham Palace by intimidating royal staff, according to the Times of London synopsis of ‘Brokers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown » by royal journalist Valentine Low.

“I think Meghan thought she was going to be the Beyoncé of the UK. Being part of the royal family would give her that kudos,” a source told Low.

« Whereas what she found was that there were so many rules that were so ridiculous that she couldn’t even do the things that she could do as an individual, which is hard. »

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, envisioned her royal life to resemble that of Beyoncé, according to the book.

When Markle, 41, and Prince Harry, 38, left their royal duties and fled to North America in 2020, the royal family struggled to find a compromise and managed the « Megxit » of a way “incompetent beyond belief,” the book reportedly said.

“Harry and Meghan felt cornered, misunderstood and deeply unhappy. If the rest of the institution failed to understand that, even if their demands were unreasonable, the exit negotiations were never going to end happily,” wrote Low, according to the newspaper.

“It just needed the decision-makers to sit around a table and say, ‘OK, what are we going to do about this? What do you need to feel better? And what can we give?

The bombshell book also explores the Duchess’ diva-like behavior and alleged abuse of staff members, who branded her a « narcissistic sociopath ».

It would detail instances where she complained about not being paid for a royal trip to Australia in 2018 and made a young courtier cry.

Early in their relationship, the biracial divorcee also told Harry she would dump him if he didn’t tell the press they were dating, causing the prince to « freak out, » Low reportedly wrote.

“Brokers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown” is set to hit bookstores on October 6.
