Meghan Markle Attempts to Use Victoria Beckham for Personal Gains

In a series of shocking revelations from Tom Bower’s new book, The House of Beckhams, it has been alleged that Meghan Markle attempted to leverage her relationship with Victoria Beckham for personal gain.

According to Bower, the Duchess of Sussex asked Victoria for free bags and clothes during her engagement to Prince Harry, a request that was ultimately vetoed by palace officials for violating royal protocols.

Bower claims that this decision may have left Meghan feeling slighted, contributing to the Sussexes’ decision to only invite Victoria and David Beckham to the ceremony of their 2018 wedding, excluding them from the more intimate reception party. This snub is highlighted as one of the early signs of growing tensions between the Sussexes and the Beckhams.

According to Bower, Meghan’s interactions with Victoria were complicated by a sense of superiority and a desire for social validation. Upon joining the royal family, Meghan reportedly “put on airs” around Victoria, believing that her new status as a royal elevated her above the fashion mogul.

Bower writes, “In Meghan’s celebrity world, ranking depended on wealth and fame. As a seasoned operator, Meghan deluded herself that her status in the royal family placed her above Victoria in the social pecking order.”

However, this sense of superiority was challenged when Meghan realized the extent of the Beckhams’ wealth and social standing.

The Beckhams, with their five homes, private jets, and access to luxurious yachts, possessed considerably more wealth than Meghan. This realization reportedly left Meghan feeling “irritated” and perhaps envious of the Beckhams’ financial and social capital.

Bower’s book suggests that the social dynamics and perceived slights contributed to a growing rift between the Sussexes and the Beckhams. The exclusion of the Beckhams from the wedding reception was a subtle but significant signal of this tension.

Furthermore, the snub was reportedly compounded when Meghan and Harry were left off the guest list for Brooklyn Beckham’s wedding, while Prince William and Kate Middleton received invitations.

These revelations provide a window into the complex and often fraught social dynamics that can exist within celebrity and royal circles. Meghan’s struggle for social superiority and the ensuing fallout with the Beckhams illustrates the challenges she faced in navigating her new royal role while maintaining her celebrity status.

Bower’s portrayal of Meghan Markle’s interactions with Victoria Beckham offers a glimpse into the pressures and expectations placed upon individuals navigating the intersecting worlds of royalty and celebrity.
