Royal biographer Angela Leone suggested on social media on Thursday that Meghan Markle had made fun of Queen Elizabeth II for presenting a video of her birthday.
The Duchess of Sussex celebrated her 40th birthday on Wednesday with a global initiative. He teamed up with comedian Melissa McCarthy to explain its benefits in a skate. The actress joined via video call, and on one occasion appeared in a beautiful hat and gloves carrying tea.
Leon, who wrote “Harry: Conversations with Princes”, took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the video. He asked if anyone else thought Meghan Markle and McCarthy were “making fun of the Queen in the birthday video.”
He noted how the two women used old-fashioned cups and saucers in the clip, as the Dutch used in their blog after their first meeting with the British king. “Melissa takes a sip from the cup and wears a fancy hat and gloves?” Leon wrote.
“The joke shows what she thinks of the royal family. She got what she wanted and she’s sure she can leave us all behind.”
The royal observer also retweeted a post by a netizen who shared his opinion. User Written, “I felt that this video made fun of the way RF made video calls! It was tasteless and a dig for the Queen! She was holding the court, playing on her royal connection and paying attention. Was drawing. “
The video opens as Meghan Markle approaches McCarthy, mingling with the Rubik’s Cube and talking about organic gardening. When it was announced that her camera was on, the actress disappeared from the screen and returned in a floral dress, matching hat and gloves, and a cup of tea and a saucer in her hand.
Filmed at the Montecito Mansion Home, which she shares with Prince Harry and her two children, Archie and Lalibet, the video also shows the Duchess sipping her favorite cup of tea. A tray of biscuits was also placed on the table next to him.
Royal biographer Robert Jobson responded to Leon, saying that Meghan Markle’s birthday video “made fun of Britain with old caricatures.” There were also people who defended the Duchess and McCarthy, explaining that the clip was “supposed to be ridiculous” and was not intended to make fun of Queen Elizabeth II.
