The Royally Obsessed’s Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie discussed Meghan Markle’s transition into the Royal Family with Andrew Morton during their latest podcast. Mr Morton stated that Meghan Markle “fell flat on her face” rather than hitting the ground running.
Mr Morton said: “You learn it through experience and it takes a long time.
“Even Catherine Middleton, she had the support of her family, she was British and knew what was expected but no one can prepare you for the level of intensity and level of interest in you.
“You have got to be quite strong both inside and outside to survive and it takes a long time.
“I think with Catherine, it has taken her a long time.
“Even with Diana, it took her years and she was an aristocrat.”
Ms Fiorito replied: “It seems like William and Kate had a longer dating period of 10 years which really helped.”
Ms Bowie added: “Meghan never lived in the UK before that too so it would be quite a culture shock in that way as well.”
Mr Morton responded: “She said ‘I am going to hit the ground running’ well I think she was running too fast and she fell flat on her face.”

Mr Scobie said: “[They are] solidifying their place in the US landscape.
“Of course a lot of stuff they are sharing with the world through these various platforms and it will be available to everyone.
“But the life that they are creating for themselves and the work they are doing is very much in America.”
Ms Rulli added: “There was this huge divide and part of it is just the culture of growing up with a monarchy or not.
“Part of it is also cultural difference but there does seem to be a lot more openness in America to the idea of Harry and Meghan having these other jobs.”
