Meghan Markle is being accused of leaking stories to the media in an attempt to further her own career. The 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex is being called out by one photographer who claims she would call the paparazzi on herself in order to land her photo in magazines prior to her relationship with Prince Harry.
The Royal Observer first broke the story. Jesal Parshotam, who is one of the most successful photographers in the business, joined Dax Holt and Adam Glyn on the Hollywood Raw podcast to discuss the famous couple.
When asked straight-up if Meghan Markle ever tips off photographers, his response was very telling.
"I'm going to have to say no comment," Parshotam told the guys.
When Dax tried pressing him by stating, "That's actually really interesting. All right. I'm going to say that says a lot," Parshotam revealed even more.
"I'll let you boys interpret that as you wish. I can't say it's a categorical no and I can't say it's a categorical yes," he said.
According to The Royal Observer, Meghan Markle has indeed leaked stories to different media outlets citing one example that happened just last year.
During summer 2020, OK! reported that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's publicist fed a royal journalist information about drones flying over their home in California.
That same reporter would later cite a "source" for a story in the Daily Beast with the title, "Fearful Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Report Multiple Drone Flybys to LAPD, Will Now Pay for Own Security."
"They see these drones coming in at them, and they guess that they are being operated by photographers, but they can’t just assume that. Meghan received racist death threats at the time of her wedding, so the terror threat is very real for them," the alleged "source" said.
As for Meghan Markle, she shocked the world when she discussed how the press's negative coverage terrorized her during her royal reign. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the former "Suits" actress said her portrayal in the British tabloids and the lack of support from the royal family almost drove her to suicide.
While Prince Harry recently rushed back to California after a short trip home for his grandfather Prince Philip's funeral, Meghan Markle opted to stay behind. She did not join her husband on the trip, reportedly due to not being cleared to fly by her doctor.
Meghan Markle is currently pregnant with the couple's second child -- a girl -- and is due in early summer.
