A friend of Prince Charles has slammed Meghan Markle for making a mockery of the royal family, accusing her of attempting to turn her new life into a TV show.

Actress Stefanie Powers, who is a longtime friend of the Prince of Wales, opened up during a talk with The Daily Beast.

Stefanie accused the Duchess of trying to be the centre of attention: “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous: The Adventures of Meghan in the Palace,” she said. 

Meghan “wants to be a star, which, I’m sorry, is not what she is supposed to be doing,” she continued.

“Meghan’s role is not about being a star. It’s her job to be Harry’s wife, not change the royal dynamic.”

Stefanie continued her verbal bashing of the Duchess of Sussex, saying that her acting skills were well below par. 

Headlines about “Hollywood royalty marrying British royalty” following her engagement to Prince Harry were absurd, she said.

“She had a role in a TV show,” the star argued. “Please, she’s obviously not a great actress. She’s not gotten into the role she has taken on.”

Stefanie didn’t hold back with her scathing attack, as she went on to compare Meghan to Kate Middleton, saying the Duchess of Cambridge “is impeccable, she doesn’t put a foot wrong.”

Meghan hasn’t been winning friends in the royal family, and has faced an ongoing backlash for her behaviour. 

After the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey was broadcast, she came under fire from Prince William, who was aparently furious.

“This interview came as a total shock to the family,” a royal insider said told RadarOnline.

“They have gone rogue.”
