Meghan Markle and Rebekah Vardy are both 'women with no apparent talent' who 'think they know everything', Lady Colin Campbell has claimed.
Appearing on GB News today, the royal expert suggested the Duchess of Sussex, 40, who is currently living in her $14 million California mansion having stepped back from royal duty last year, is ‘very committed to being self serving.’
After comparing the mother-of-two to Rebekah Vardy, she told Mark Dolan: ‘We seem to have a whole slew of really rather tiresome, very opinionated women, who seem to have made their way in life through talents which are not immediately apparent, and they think they’re the best thing since sliced bread. And they know everything.’
Lady Colin’s comments come as it was claimed Prince Harry, 37, and Meghan won’t be visiting the Queen when she takes her summer break at Balmoral despite an invite.
Meghan Markle is ‘very calculating’, Lady Colin Campbell claims

Speaking to GB News, Lady Colin said: ‘She’s very calculating and I think that if he had not been a Prince Henry of Wales, she wouldn’t have given him two minutes, much less the length of time she intends to give him.
Asked on her opinion of Meghan was committed, she said: ‘Yes, of course, she was very committed to being self serving, but only self serve. Public service? Not a chance.
‘This is a woman who, in my opinion, everything is calculated and it all comes down to status, and bucks and attention.’
She added: ‘Notice how dexterously she moved him from the royal family to California…she has clearly decided that she wasn’t going to give her time or her energy to the British people or was serving humanity when she could serve her financial interests in a community property state, where in the event of a divorce she gets a whopping 50 per cent.’
Meanwhile Lady C compared the Duchess to Rebekah Vardy, whom she called ‘pretentious’
California is a community property state, meaning all assets acquired during the marriage by either spouse are split equally, unless there is a pre-nup.
Lady C added: ‘If she gets something better, he will be toast. If she never finds anything better…that’s the modus operandi of people who are very opportunistic, narcissistic and exploitative….
‘I said in my book that I was told the royal family’s great fear was that Harry would actually end up doing something rather dramatic and final.
‘The people who know him very well, there was the fear that his passions would prevail over the limited amount of sense that he has. He’s not the brightest star in the constellation.’

On the couple’s business deals, she said: ‘I’ve been reliably informed that the figures that have been quoted were pie in the sky.
‘Netflix and Spotify have not given them anywhere near the amount of money that they would like the world to [believe]…
‘No, I think that she is in some ways on a very slippery slope, shades of Rebekah Vardy.
‘You know, the chickens come home to roost when you are as artificial as these women are.’
Asked about the court case involving Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney, she said: ‘I felt it was insanity.

Asked if Rebekah was similar in character to Meghan Markle, she said: ‘Yes, peas of the same pod.
‘And I think they have exploited similar talents to arrive where they have arisen at…they’re so pretentious.’
Her comments come as it emerged the Queen reportedly asked the couple and their two children, three-year-old Archie and Lilibet, one, to stay at her Scottish residence and told royal staff to prepare.
It was said that the Sussexes would not have to spend time with other royals such as Charles and William.
However the couple, who last went to Balmoral in 2018, are said to not be planning to attend the Scottish Highlands estate over the next few months.
A Balmoral insider told The Sun and Page Six: ‘Staff have been told to expect the full list of royals including Harry, Meghan and their children.
‘They are preparing for the Sussexes.’
Another sources is reported to have said: ‘I would be stunned if they did turn up.’
It is understood the couple are planning to stay in the United States before the release of Harry’s memoir.
PageSix reports that Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, are not expected to join the Queen because they have not been invited.
