Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, gave Meghan Markle advice about life in the monarchy, according to royal commentators. The future consort reportedly didn’t want her new daughter-in-law to “feel that she was being targeted”. Biographer Angela Levin spoke about the dynamic on Channel 5 documentary, ‘Charles & Harry: Father and Son Divided’.
She told viewers: “Camilla had a dreadful time with people accusing her of causing Diana’s death.
“I know Camilla spoke to [Meghan] and they had lunch together.
“She tried to help her get used to things.
“She talked about her own experiences so that [Meghan] wouldn’t feel that she was being targeted.”

The documentary narrator added: “The Royal Family may have been reassuring Meghan behind-the-scenes.
“But it’s their standard practice not to complain in public about press treatment.
“By apparently not speaking up for Meghan, Charles seemed to find himself taking a very different path to Harry.”
BBC Royal Correspondent Daisy McAndrew explained why the harassment the Duchess of Sussex faced was worse than other royals.
Ms McAndrew continued: “Very old-fashion opinions, borderline racist opinions.
“The trouble is that one article like that is one too many.”
Meghan herself spoke about the racism she experienced as a working royal during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The Duchess said: “Kate was called ‘Waity Katie’, waiting to marry William. While I imagine that was really hard — and I do, I can’t picture what that felt like — this is not the same.
“And if a member of his family will comfortably say, ‘We’ve all had to deal with things that are rude,’ rude and racist are not the same.”
