King Charles was fond of Meghan but now bewildered by her, says expert

King Charles used to be fond of Meghan Markle but now feels "bewildered" by her, according to an expert.

Christopher Andersen made the remarks in response to Meghan's recent interviews where she discussed the royal family.

The mum-of-two has continuously shared her experiences about life in The Firm since she moved back to the US with Prince Harry.

The Sussexes released a bombshell interview with Oprah last year, which saw Meghan criticise how she was treated as a senior royal.

She claimed she had been falsely accused of making Kate Middleton cry by the media and then prevented from defending herself by Kensington Palace.

She added she had experienced suicidal thoughts and had gone to several senior palace officials for help but was told that checking into a hospital would not be good for public image, reports OK!

And, perhaps most damaging of all, Meghan claimed an unnamed member of the Royal Family had made private comments to Harry about the skin colour of their then-unborn son, Archie.

Royal expert Christopher Andersen told US Weekly that the Royal Family “pay attention” to Meghan’s comments.

He added: “I think — as far as Charles is concerned, specifically — you know, he feels betrayed.”

Andersen – author of Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan – pointed out the King, 73, had walked Meghan down the aisle at her May 2018 wedding in place of her own father, Thomas Markle.

The expert said: “I mean, he really was very fond of her. And I think he’s somewhat bewildered.”

Harry has also opened up about his childhood since stepping back from life as a senior royal – speaking about “pain” he had suffered because of the way he was brought up.

Speaking on the Armchair Expert podcast, the Duke of Sussex said: "I don't think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly when it comes to parenting, if I've experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I'm going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don't pass it on.”

Andersen told Us Weekly that while the Queen was used to handling this kind of behaviour from the Sussexes, Charles was still finding his footing.

He added: “I don’t think it threw her as much as it has thrown Charles, and understandably so, because this is his son and the daughter-in-law who … [have] said some pretty hurtful things.”

The Duke’s hotly-anticipated and “unflinching” autobiography Spare will be released on January 10 next year, his publishers have confirmed.

Publisher Penguin Random House said the book will be the “definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him".
