In October, Meghan’s former agent Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne, who is from the United Kingdom, told the Daily Mail that she would be under intense pressure from the media if she married Harry.
“I disclosed to her she didn’t know what she was letting herself certain,” Nelthorpe-Cowne said, including that Duchess Meghan was “naive” about handling the press and therefore the pressures of being a member of the royal family.
Meghan’s old friend said that she was constantly negated by her at whatever point she tried to bring the subject, with Meghan telling her she didn’t want to listen to her “negativity”
Nelthorpe-Cowne disclosed this after the Duchess acknowledged that her friends tried to warn her about the perpetually hounding of the British press if she wed to Harry.
In an interview with ITV’s Tom Brady for the documentary Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, Meghan told, “I had no clue, which most likely sounds difficult to know here.
“When I first met Harry, my friends were extremely cheerful because I was over the moon, but my British friend said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s incredible, but you shouldn’t do it as the British tabloids will crush your life.”
The London-based talent agency director included that Meghan “changed” when things started getting serious with Harry.
“I spoke to Meghan about the British media and plainly she didn’t have a clear idea of what she was letting herself in for. She was naive. I despite everything imagine that now,” she said.
“One day we were having supper on the Strand in London and it was obvious it was getting intense with Harry. I said, ‘This is not kidding. ‘This is serious. This is the finish of your normal life, the finish of privacy – everything.’
“But, she simply grabbed her hand and said: ‘Stop. I would prefer not to hear any cynicism or negativity. This is often a cheerful time for us.”
