AceShowbiz - Ahead of the arrival of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal baby, TLC is tackling the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in "Meghan & Harry: A Royal Baby Story" which aired on April 9. In the special, royal experts also talk about Meghan's alleged high staff turnover which makes British media dub her "difficult Duchess."
"There have been a lot of rumors about Meghan and what she's really like behind the scenes," says Katie Nicholl in a clip of the special that was obtained by Entertainment Tonight. "Of course she's an actress, and when you see her in public, that mega smile, she is the consummate professional. And this reputation for being 'difficult' was linked to an unusually high turnover of staff at the palace."
Another expert adds that one other thing that contributes to the nickname is because the former "Suits" star will get up in the morning extra early to get her day started and text her team members what her plans are. It is pretty different for the staff and their protocol. Some of them are also said to be raising their eyebrows over Meghan's "rather direct approach" which doesn't "sit well" with the "more refined British."
Amid the relatively bad impression, broadcaster Sarah-Jane Crawford has a different opinion on the expecting royal. "There's nothing wrong with being a woman who knows what she wants," she explains. "The fact that she is a feminist, she is somebody who is known for really speaking up for what she believes in -- people don't like that."
Meghan is expected to give birth to her and Prince Harry's royal baby. It was previously revealed that the former "Suits" actress was set to give birth at Croydon University Hospital, marking the first time for British royal family member to ever give birth in the South London burough.
"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex will give birth at Croydon University Hospital, Croydon," the Palace said in a statement. "Their Royal Highnesses have chosen this hospital following a number of successful meetings with staff and midwives. They were both blown away by the hospital's facilities, which include a world-class maternity suite."
"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex appreciate all of the support they have received from people around the world since news of the pregnancy became public and are now looking forward to the delivery itself," continued the statement.
