Royal expert Neil made the claims in a video on his YouTube channel.

“This senior royal takes no nonsense, much like her father the late Duke of Edinburgh,” he said.

“Apparently, when Meghan Markle joined the Royal Family, she sought out Princess Anne,” he continued.

Princess Anne gave very sage advice to the new royal.

“According to a very good source, Princess Anne gave very sage advice to the new royal.

Neil then continued, saying: “She does endless amounts of engagements. She turns up does the job and does not seek the limelight, and represents the Queen.”

“But apparently Meghan left her meeting with Princess Anne dumbfounded,” he continued.

“Princess Anne reiterated this mantra, she pointed out that it wasn’t a working monarchy, it was a job, you turn up on time, you do your research, and do the duty,” he said.

However, Meghan reportedly didn’t take Anne’s words to heart.

“According to a very good source Meghan Markle failed to warm to Princess Anne,” Neil said.
