Meghan Markle’s former videographer recently shed light on how she was like on set.
While speaking with Daily Mail, the videographer revealed that the Duchess of Sussex earned the nickname of a princess because of her diva behavior.
Markle is also known for bringing a huge entourage on set. And she gives clear instructions for everyone not to take photos of her feet. Prince Harry’s wife also insists on having expensive champagne on set.
“She was very high-maintenance and rude. She was difficult and demanding,” the videographer said.
He also recounted a time when he worked with Markle on a promotional project in Toronto. Prior to their meeting, the videographer was warned about the Duchess of Sussex is a handful.
The minute Markle walked into the room, it became evident that was everyone was saying about her was right. The videographer said that Markle had a way of talking to people and giving out her rules.
“It was like it was the big diva coming in, and she doesn't want people to see her like you would do if you're walking in the street and you don't want the paparazzi to take your picture. So I was like, ''wow''. I wasn't impressed.
Everyone thought, ''she is acting like an A-lister when she is not even a D-lister''. But it was kind of like a caricature of someone playing the superstar, you know, because a real superstar, generally unless it's a super bad day, they will play it naturally and be generous with their presence,’” he said.
The videographer gave Markle credit for being easy to shoot. He said that when the director or photographer says action, she is always ready. But the minute the cameras stop rolling, she stops being friendly and professional.
Working with Prince Harry’s wife was like walking on egg shells because there were just too many rules. Markle also expects everyone to ask permission from her before they can do anything.
The videographer also thought that after working with Markle years ago, he would never see her again. But to his surprise, she started dating Prince Harry.
“I don’t think she deserves the attention. I wasn’t impressed with her and I’m just surprised she charmed the guy. She came across as very insecure and spoiled. Even if you are dating the prince, it doesn’t impress me. I’m doing my job, you’re doing your job, let’s just do what we do,” he said.
Meanwhile, there are also rumors suggesting that Prince Harry and Markle are struggling with their finances in Los Angeles. But even if this is the case, they are still spending a lot of money and could end up broke.
