Wendy Williams reveals press shy Meghan Markle begged to be on the show, until Prince Harry proposed

Daily Mail Online 1 month ago

A queen of daytime dismissed the royal grievances of Meghan Markle on her show Tuesday.

Wendy Williams made it clear that she had no patience, and even less sympathy, for Meghan Markle after the actress bemoaned the constant media coverage and photographers who have been following her in the year since she married Prince Harry.

'Meghan Markle, nobody feels sorry for you,' declared Wendy, drawing a very divided response from the audience. 

'You knew what you were signing up for, girl.'

Wendy took issue with Markle over her claim in a recent interview that she 'naively' thought nothing would change after she married Prince Harry last year. 

The talk show host shared a clip of that interview, in which Markle said her British friends warned her that the tabloids would 'tear her apart,'  and that she 'did not get' that fact that she would be a constant presence in the media.

'Yes you did,' said an incredulous Wendy after airing the segment. 

'You knew exactly what you were doing. And I applaud her "plottation" of the royal situation. But please, don't try to garner sympathy from us. You knew what you were doing.'

Wendy went on to point out that if Markle and her husband were so distressed by the situation overseas they could just move to America.

'Have a mansion in Malibu, a big hut... or a big hotel or wherever you're going to live in Africa, and have your royal palace-esque place in England,' opined Williams. 

The talk show host did then make it clear that she had nothing against the couple.

'I like them. I really do like them,' said Wendy. 

'But her - there's something about her.' 

Wendy continued: 'You know what I'm saying? And you know what, girl, Meghan? Don't be surprised if the paparazzi are everywhere, you are royal.'

'Meghan Markle, nobody feels sorry for you,' declared Wendy. 'You knew what you were signing up for, girl' (Markle and Prince Harry at their engagement photocall above)

Then, Wendy expanded upon a story she had told in the past about the time Markle asked to appear on the program. 

Wendy explained to her audience that the press shy princess was once very much interested in the exposure that would be provided to her if she appeared on a few episodes of The Wendy Show.

Markle even went to the New York offices of the program during her pitch, but when the show called back to make the big offer they found the situation had suddenly changed for the Suits star.

Wendy asked for her producer to join the conversation at one point, who explained: 'So [Markle] wanted to be on the show, they chatted with her and they thought that she'd be perfect to come here and do it and then by the time we decided to book her...'

That is when the talk show host replied: 'She was already engaged.'

She then paused for a moment and added: 'So you get the picture.'
