MEGHAN MARKLE’S Palace insiders made a “huge mistake” in the way in which they handled the backlash from the Duchess of Sussex’s family, PR guru Mark Borkowski has said.
Meghan Markle’s father Thomas was due to attend the Royal Wedding in May last year but it was revealed just days before that he had been hit with a heart problem and was too ill to make the trip.
The announcement came as he admitted he was paid to stage paparazzi photos to sell to news outlets in an effort to improve his image.
The Royal Family has been criticised for not welcoming Meghan’s family to the UK sooner in preparation for the wedding.
Mr Borkowski criticised the Royal Family’s handling of the situation and told ITV’s ‘Harry and Meghan: A Royal Baby’ documentary: “When you are dealing with AA list celebrities, it is really tough. It is unforgiving.
“The royal household didn’t deal with her family and cut then off and separated them out and they became the embarrassing dad.
“That was a huge mistake.
“She is a Hollywood actress. She knows what it is to project. She understands the demands of the media. It’s the Meghan show.”
