Prince Charles’ friend slams Meghan Markle: ‘She’s frightfully common’


The 78-year-old interior designer Nicky Haslam recently spoke out about his dislike of Meghan Markle in an interview with the Daily Mail. The designer has been friends with the British royals, and Prince Charles in particular, for years. It doesn’t seem like he’ll be having a good friendship with Prince Harry and his wife, though. Haslam isn’t exactly positive about the duchess of Sussex: “they’re frightfully common”, he says about both Meghan and her family.

‘Huge lump’

Because of heart problems and a surgery, Meghan’s father couldn’t attend her wedding and Haslam thinks everyone was better off for it. “It would have been awful if that huge lump had been there. The royals probably don’t quite know how to deal with them,” Haslam supposed.

Concrete wedding dress

The beautiful wedding dress Meghan wore on her special day wasn’t up to Haslam’s standards either. “I didn’t very much like her dress – it didn’t fit, among other things. It should have been made of thinner stuff, it seemed to be made of concrete.”

Not happy

An insider has reported that the interview definitely rubbed Prince Charles the wrong way. This same insider has said that Prince Charles plans to have a talk with Nicky Haslam about it. Apparently, Charles was very alarmed by the interview and he thinks that the whole think just radiates snobbery. Prince Harry has also been said to be very concerned about the constant stream of negativity about Meghan. It’s very hurtful to him and he’s afraid the media want to rip the couple apart.
