“She knew this was in the works and actually told Meghan to follow her heart and leave if she needed to,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
After Charles and Diana’s famous divorce, the Prince of Whales married Camilla, and the new Duchess of Cornwall automatically acquired rank as the second highest woman in the United Kingdom order of precedence – after the Queen.
It appears Camilla is enjoying a new round of royal controversy and has been helping orchestrate “Megxit” even as her husband has tried to get her to help temper the situation.
“Charles hoped Camilla would be a calming influence, but he’s been blind to her scheming and stirring that’s been going behind his back,” the source continued.
Camilla turned heads recently, when she was asked whether she would miss Harry and Meghan. After a short pause, Camilla simply said, "Course," with a wry smile on her face.
“Camilla secretly revels in all this drama,” the source confessed. “And she’s brilliant at playing all sides, like a conniving politician.”
Regardless of what happens next, it seems Prince Harry’s stepmom has her own plan in place.
“Meghan looks up to her as do Charles and The Queen,” according to the source. “She’s basically just been biding her time and keeping everyone close until she’s sitting on the throne herself.”
