Meghan Markle’s shocking allegations about her life in the royal family have fundamentally altered the British monarchy “as we know it,” a Parliamentarian has claimed.
Former Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott, the first black member of Parliament, theorized in a new Vanity Fair cover story that, as a result of Markle’s contentions, the monarchy “as we know it will last as long as the queen is alive.”
Upon Her Majesty’s death, Abbott said, “I think there will be a big public debate … and I think what the royal family and their advisers did with Meghan will be part of the argument for change.”
Abbott said that a debate could even reach the floor of Parliament, with a “clamor to look at the current arrangement and maybe move to a more Scandinavian monarchy, where you don’t have all the pomp and ceremony.”
Markle, who is biracial, last month told Oprah Winfrey how members of the royal family had “raised concerns” with Prince Harry over how dark their children’s skin would be — and also revealed that she was so unhappy within palace life she had considered suicide.
Meanwhile, British writer Anna Pasternak said Markle’s claims may even stop Prince Charles from being crowned King.
“I’m not 100 percent sure that we will see Charles ascend to the throne,” Pasternak told VF. “The Sussexes have sparked something so fundamentally incendiary in this country that it is changing the face of Britain, and I think the monarchy as an archaic institution may well topple.”
Following Harry’s claims that his father and brother are “trapped” within their roles, “both sides are like wounded animals,” Pasternak said.
The writer — who wondered if Markle will ever set foot on British soil again — added: “Harry said there’s been an awful lot of hurt. Well, there’s been an awful lot of hurt now on the side of the Windsors from this interview.”
But following Harry and William’s reunion at their grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral on Saturday, Peter York, co-author of “The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook,” said: “The ideal reconciliation will be if, in some way, the queen can engineer it while she’s still around.
“It would serve the monarchy to show that, as it were, brotherly love, grandmotherly love, had triumphed.”
