Both Meghan Markle and Rebekah Vardy are “seemingly untalented women” who “think they know it all”, Lady Colin Campbell has said.
Appearing on GB News today, the royal expert suggested the Duchess of Sussex, 40, who is currently living in her $14million California mansion after stepping back from royal duties last year, is “very determined to be selfish”.
After comparing the mother-of-two to Rebekah Vardy, she told Mark Dolan: ‘We seem to have a whole bunch of really rather boring, very opinionated women, who seem to have made their way in life through talents that don’t are not immediately apparent, and they think they are the best thing since sliced bread. And they know everything.
Lady Colin’s comments come as it has been claimed Prince Harry, 37, and Meghan will not visit the Queen when she takes her summer vacation at Balmoral despite an invitation.

Speaking to GB News, Lady Colin said: ‘She is very calculating and I think if he hadn’t been a Prince Henry of Wales she wouldn’t have given him two minutes, let alone the time that she intends to grant him.
Asked about her opinion on Meghan’s engagement, she replied: ‘Yes of course she was very determined to be selfish, but only selfish. Public Service? No chance.
“She’s a woman who I think is all calculated and it all comes down to status, money and attention.”
She added: “Notice how dexterously she moved it from the royal family to California…she clearly decided she wasn’t going to give her time or her energy to the British people or that she was serving humanity so that she could serve her financial interests in a community property state, where in the event of a divorce, she gets a whopping 50 percent.
Meanwhile, Lady C compared the Duchess to Rebekah Vardy, who she called ‘pretentious’
California is a communal property state, which means that any assets acquired during marriage by either spouse are shared equally, unless there is a prenup.
Lady C added: ‘If she gets anything better it will be grilled. If she can’t find anything better… that’s the modus operandi of very opportunistic, narcissistic and exploitative people….
“I said in my book that I was told that the great fear of the royal family was that Harry would end up doing something rather dramatic and definitive.
“People who know him very well, there was the fear that his passions would outweigh what little sense he has. It’s not the brightest star in the constellation.

Of the couple’s business deals, she said: ‘I have been reliably advised that the numbers that were quoted were pie in the sky.
“Netflix and Spotify didn’t give them the amount of money they would like the world to [believe]…
“No, I think she’s kind of on a very slippery slope, shades of Rebekah Vardy.
“You know, chickens come home to roost when you’re as fake as those women.
Asked about the court case involving Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney, she said: ‘I felt it was madness.

When asked if Rebekah had a similar character to Meghan Markle, she replied, “Yes, peas from the same pod.
“And I think they’ve harnessed similar talents to get to where they appeared…they’re so pretentious.”
His comments come as it emerged the Queen is said to have asked the couple and their two children, Archie and Lilibet, one, three, to stay at her Scottish residence and told royal staff to prepare.
It has been said that the Sussexes will not have to spend time with other members of the royal family such as Charles and William.
However, the couple, who last visited Balmoral in 2018, do not plan to visit the Scottish Highlands estate in the coming months.
A Balmoral insider told The Sun and Page Six: ‘Staff have been told to expect the full list of Royal Family members, including Harry, Meghan and their children.’
“They are preparing for the Sussexes.”
Another source reportedly said, “I would be amazed if they showed up.”
It is understood the couple plan to stay in the US before Harry’s memoir is published.
PageSix reports that Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, are not expected to join the Queen as they have not been invited.
