'She Is Wrong For The Country': Princess Anne Told Prince Harry That Meghan Markle Was 'Unsuitable' For Him, Claims Lady Colin Campbell
It's no secret that the royal family was not very welcoming to Meghan Markle when Prince Harry first introduced her to them. Now, Lady Colin Campbell claims that Queen Elizabeth's daughter, Princess Anne, was the one to start the war.
"Princess Anne was the champion in terms of 'don't marry that girl, she is unsuitable,'" the expert said in a YouTube video in April.
"'She is wrong for us, she is wrong for the country, she is wrong for the job,'" Anne apparently told Harry, 36, Campbell claimed.

She added: "It just absolutely turned Princess Anne off because she couldn't stand Meghan's constant 'uh, uh, me, me me, me.'"
While speaking to Oprah Winfrey in March, Meghan, 39, claimed that someone in the royal family was "concerned" over Archie's skin color. Shortly after, Winfrey confirmed that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were not in on those conversations.
Soon after, Campbell spoke about the incident in a YouTube video called "Lady C REVEALS the Royal Meghan and Harry wouldn’t name + why Prince Albert intervened."
"I have spoken to this family friend and we have both decided that the most judicious thing is that I relieve who the person is," Campbell claimed. "The fact of the matter is the person said nothing about Meghan's complexion, nothing about the color of her skin, nothing about her race, nothing about the color of the baby's skin and future baby because this was a warning issued by a concerned member of the family."
She continued, "Meghan was lying and Harry was speaking the truth when he said that the conversation heavily spun by Meghan incidentally, and to an extent him, because she has managed to convince him that any criticism of her is based upon race, and he's so dumb that he's actually swallowed that lie."

Ultimately, Anne was supposedly not a fan of Meghan from the get-go. "There were no concerns about Meghan’s color, Princess Anne was rightly concerned that if the marriage proceeded and there were children there would be huge problems, not because of Meghan’s color, but because of Meghan’s inability and determination to remain unable to appreciate the cultural differences and to actually have respect for the institution in to which she was marrying, and the family in which she was marrying," Campbell said.
