Despite the trenchant controversies, the Duke and The Duchess of Sussex have managed to stay afloat in the headlines they work for. The self-exiled couple has garnered enormous fanfare across the pond, unlike their deteriorating base in the UK. However, it is still a common conception that Meghan Markle has been riding on her husband’s coattails all this while. More so, further allegations state she had been eyeing the UK royal family long before she even came in contact with Prince Harry. But are these claims really true?

A recent claim against the Duchess came to light on Twitter. An account named Mystifeyed shared a few pictures of the Duchess clicked by the running paparazzi on her day-to-day life. Framing the pictures, the account implied that Meghan Markle had been putting herself into the limelight much before she entered the royal waters. It also stated that she had been captured sometimes before the Kensington even when she was not Prince Harry‘s girlfriend yet. However, the facts stated clearly do not seem true.
