A royal commentator has just hinted that Meghan Markle has finally “found her voice” after being “muzzled for years” by the royal family, and is now “excited” to “get to muzzle off” and use her voice again.
Meghan Markle Has Reportedly ‘Found Her Voice’ Again After Being Institutionally Muzzled
The bold claim came from historian and royal commentator Tessa Dunlop during an interview with Talk TV host Sarah Hewson, whereby she suggested that incoming changes are “sure to rock the boat,” and the Duchess of Sussex, 41, is simply getting back to her old, pre-royal-life self, rather than turning into someone new.
“I don’t think it’s necessarily a rebrand; I think it’s building on old Meghan,” Dunlop began, while claiming that we didn’t really know the former Suits actress that well before she entered royal life, so this could be a great chance to get to know the real her, after being “muzzled” by the “institution” for all these years.
“She’s taken what she can from the ancient institution that is monarchy, she’s enjoyed the trappings, and she’s re-parked her guns on the big, lush lawns of America, and she’s showing the world her voice in a way that she felt was muzzled when she was within the institution,” Dunlop continued.
“This is I think what Meghan was always about, prior to marrying Harry,” she added. “He emboldened her and made sure that together they’re more than the sum of their parts.”
What Has Meghan Previously Said About Feeling Silenced?
Meghan has had quite a lot to say about being silenced since joining the royal family, especially during the infamous Oprah interview which aired in March 2021. “I’ve always valued independence. I’ve always been outspoken, especially about women’s rights, and that’s the sad irony of the last four years, I’ve advocated for so long for women to use their voice,” Meghan told Oprah. “And then I was silent.” Oprah then asked, “Were you silent, or were you silenced?” and Meghan replied, “The latter.”
In the same interview, Meghan also compared herself to Disney’s Ariel The Little Mermaid, as she referenced the fact that, like Ariel, she too had to give up her voice in order to marry her prince. “And I went, ‘Oh my God she falls in love with the prince and because of that she loses her voice.'” Meghan said. “But in the end she gets her voice back.”

Bethenny Frankel Mocks Meghan On Her Podcast
Businesswoman and former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel said that she thinks Meghan is sharing too much since she and Prince Harry stepped down as senior royals, and even compared her to a former Housewife who left the show but hasn’t been able to stop talking about it.
“She’s very much like a Housewife in that she can’t stop talking about the very thing that she wants to be irrelevant,” Frankel said on her Just B With Bethenny Frankel podcast back in September. “When you leave the royal family, leave the royal family. You learned something, you said it, we heard you… and still in every single interview you do you’re talking about the royal family. Let it go Elsa. Move forward. Create change in the future.”
“I want to separate myself from the royal family,” she said, mocking Meghan. “I was treated horribly. I want my privacy, but I want my podcast. I want my privacy, but I want a Netflix special.” Frankel has also speculated why she thinks many people don’t like Meghan, saying that she believes she “talks down” to people during her podcast. “I think she’s sanctimonious. I think there’s this subtext of elevation. She’s up there, we’re down here,” she said.
Megyn Kelly Says She Doesn’t Care About Meghan’s ‘Non-Problems’
Megyn Kelly, who has never been shy about voicing her opinions about the Duchess, has done so yet again, telling Dan Wootton that she should really “stop talking” about herself at a time where people have much bigger problems to deal with. “I am so sick of her tired, off-point, irrelevant musings about her non-problems,” Kelly said in her interview with Wootton, referencing the 100,000 homeless people who are living in the State of California, where Meghan and Harry currently live , adding that the homicide rate “has reached an all-time high.”
“We don’t care. Shut up! Stop talking about yourself and show some humility and gratitude,” Kelly continued. “And we are supposed to give a [expletive] if someone is calling Meghan the b-word or difficult? We don’t, she doesn’t get it. No one gives a [expletive] about these non-problems. She should stop complaining and start showing some gratitude for what appears to be a very beautiful life about which she finds nothing to celebrate.”
