An interview on MSNBC Live came to an abrupt end after Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, was insulted by a guest during a debate about how she and Prince Harry’s husband decided to step away from their royal duties.
Victoria Mather, described on the Saturday morning show as a “Vanity Fair royal watcher,” suggested that the couple probably gave up their royal duties because Meghan probably didn’t want to “spend the rest of her life staring at Kate Middleton’s back as she stood in the second row to the future queen.
Mather also snickered at an anonymously sourced claim that Meghan gave “a knife for Christmas” to her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, before adding, “Which is quite remarkable, isn’t it?”
‘ I think what really disturbed the British public is that Meghan Markle, who is considered by many as just, you know, five clicks from the trailer trash, has tried to disrespect the queen.’
She further added, ‘ And the Queen is the world’s most respected, most respected woman. ‘
That show’s host, Lindsay Reiser, ended the interview about Prince Harry and Meghan stepping back from royal duties right after British reporter Victoria Mather’s comment.
Mather hasn’t been working at Vanity Fair since 2018, BuzzFeed News told the publication. As per the their social media profile, her latest titles are “Chief Travel Correspondent Air Mail” and “Columnist Sunday Telegraph.”
Mather claimed in a September column on Air Mail’s website that Meghan “comes from a deeply dysfunctional family, which contributes to her being unpleasantly trolled as a trailer trash.”
While Mather reportedly writes on her social media profiles for the digital news site Air Mail, she describes herself as a travel editor for Vanity Fair via her former title.
A spokeswoman for Condé Nast, the parent company of the publication, it was told that since 2018 she hasn’t been operating there.
This week the duke and duchess returned to the UK to conclude their final official royal duties after they moved to Canada. They were attending the Mountbatten Music Festival at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Saturday.
This was the first time since the news of the shock on January 6 that Meghan, 38, and the Queen, 93, had seen each other.
