Lady Colin Campbell and Meghan Markle

Lady C launches scathing attack on Meghan and claims her ambition was to ‘outshine’ Diana

This isn't the first time she's criticised Meghan and Prince Harry

Lady Colin Campbell has claimed Meghan Markle‘s ambition was to “outshine” Princess Diana.

The I’m A Celebrity star and royal author is no stranger to criticising Meghan and her husband Prince Harry.

In a new interview, Lady C spoke about her new book, Meghan And Harry: The Real Story, and the couple’s decision to step back from royal life.

The star, 70, said she believes Harry is “so desperate to please” Meghan and will “go along with whatever she says” because he’s “besotted with her”.

What did Lady C say?

She told new magazine: “I believe that if Harry had married anyone else, he would still be a member of the royal family.”

Speaking about the similarities between Meghan and Harry’s late mother Diana, Lady C claimed they both have “many of the same failings”.

She added: “I believe Meghan’s ambition was always to outshine Diana. There are many parallels.

“For me Meghan’s ambition has always been to outshine Diana, but I think she’s gravely misread the situation.”

Lady C said she “really thinks she’ll struggle to fulfill her ambition”.

She also claimed Meghan and Harry will struggle to “make even £20 million per year” despite wanting to become “this billionaire power couple”.

Last month, Lady C clashed with Phillip Schofield over her new book about Meghan and Harry.

The author appeared on This Morning and the interview turned sour as she branded Phil “ignorant” after he accused her of being a “gossip”.

What happened?

Phil asked: “Isn’t this all a bit tawdry and undignified?” to which Lady C replied: “There’s nothing tawdry and undignified on the truth and our history in the making.

“Harry and Meghan’s story is history in the making.”

She added: “My relationships with all members of the royal family are private.”

However, Phil hit back: “But you are a gossip. You’re a gossip.”

Lady C said: “I think if you had any respect for the truth you would be able to appreciate that people, who actually stand up and go against the tide, understand the truth.”
