Duchess Meghan views Prince Andrew as ‘the ultimate embarrassing uncle’

(L-R) Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, Prime Minister, Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds attend the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on November 09, 2019 in London, England.

Considering the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were being smeared in the same timeline of the intense scrutiny of Prince Andrew’s relationship to Jeffrey Epstein, many of us thought the two things were related. Meaning, some of us thought that the palace offered up the Sussexes as sacrificial lambs so that the media would ease up (or ignore) Andrew. Some people also wondered if Andrew’s situation – not to mention his catastrophic BBC interview – was the straw that broke the camel’s back for the Sussexes when they made their decision to exit. I have a theory about this, actually: in the immediate aftermath of Andrew’s interview, it looked like the Queen would use the Cambridges and Sussexes to circle the wagons around Andrew, and Meghan and Harry were like “you want us to do WHAT?” Anyway, of course Meghan is grossed out by all things involving Andrew. That being said, take this story with a grain of salt:

Meghan Markle sees Prince Andrew as the “ultimate embarrassing uncle”, a royal insider claimed today. The former actress was already less than impressed by the Duke of York’s “stuffy” behaviour when they met – with the Jeffrey Epstein scandal only deepening the divide. And a royal source today told The Sun Online that Prince Andrew was one member of the Royal Family Meghan would not miss after she and Prince Harry quit as royals, moving to Canada for a new life.

They said: “Put it this way, she doesn’t view Andrew as one of the Family’s great assets and he’s not going to be one of the people she’s going to miss on her time away from the Windsors. She views him as the ultimate embarrassing uncle.”

It comes after it was claimed Meghan was left troubled hearing Prince Andrew’s car crash interview about his friendship with paedo Epstein – with the royal saying it was a “positive act to have sex with somebody” as a man.

The source added: “Meghan is not enamoured of Andrew at all. Not just because of his questionable attitude to women and how he referred to them in that awful Newsnight interview, in which he was talking in an almost alien language, as if all women were conquests. Meeting the real Andrew was even worse – she told a friend that she couldn’t see the attraction – he wasn’t exactly welcoming to her and that he was stuffy and pompous. And that he kept on making awful, puerile jokes – which he seemed to find hilarious.”

[From The Sun]

I mean… an embarrassing uncle is the dude who rips nuclear farts at the family reunion. The embarrassing uncle is the one who tells horrifying stories about your childhood to your new boyfriend. Andrew is beyond the “embarrassing uncle” trope. He is a man who raped trafficked teenagers given to him by a pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein, and a human trafficker, Ghislaine Maxwell. But yeah, I bet he’s also a racist, sexist jackass as parties and family gatherings. But he’s the Queen’s favorite! How dare Meghan not like him!

    Evidently Kate and the rest of the royals don’t find him to be embarassing – he attended her birthday bash ffs!!!

  2. LindaS says:

    He seems to be completely full of himself even now as the scandal continues. It doesnt seem to concern him

    • Lara K says:

      He is beyond stuffy. When he talked in that interview, he seemed to be puffed up, like they stuffed his suit or something.
      The entitlement just drips from every pore.
      I can imagine Meg meeting him and just running to wash her hands afterwards.

  3. GR says:

    I wonder if she meant something more like the “funny uncle”: the guy who suddenly takes a lot of interest in his young female relatives when they hit puberty, and if your mom sees you’re alone with him, she tells you to come help her in the kitchen.

    • Florence says:

      Yes! The “bad-touch”’uncle.

    • Betsy says:

      It depresses me that sexual assault and coercion are so common even in families that we all have a shared word for this and I swear to god I have a sense memory of this happening.

    • JennEricaMS says:

      I look back at the way my mom and aunts used to ignore the actions of our “touchy” step-grandfather (who loved trying to kiss my cousins and I on the lips, slap our butts, and make comments about our developing breasts) and I get irate. Their advice was not to put ourselves in that situation and, when we were effectively cornered by him, they would just roll their eyes at his behavior. I know times were different then but, as the mother of a tween daughter, I would lose all my shit right then and there if a relative tried that with my child.

  4. Britt says:

    Another attempt to link Meghan into a story and get her dragged. The woman is in Canada and has nothing to do with Andrew. That media is just disgusting. Honestly, the media needs to stop because they’ve already been exposed for the racist, classist, xenophobic trash they are at this point. It reeks of desperation. I’m starting to wonder if those in the Rota will be trying to force themselves into events to still cover them because it seems like they can’t let these two go.

    • Thank you Britt. I agree. This is again “unnamed sources and friends” leaking leaking leaking. I’m not buying any of this right now because I think Harry and Meghan have their PR locked down tight. If one of their friends comments they do so on the record, like his friend the polo player. As Harry said, (the press) are not going to bully him in to playing this game. I think that goes for Meghan too.

    • Christina says:

      Yup, Britt. Meghan gets clicks and sells magazines for the British press, so they need to loop her into stories to make money. Following Kate around photographing her with Black children doesn’t get them the same amount of money.

    • Mac says:

      I can’t imagine that he and Meghan were in the same room more than a handful of times. I don’t get the sense he is Harry’s favorite uncle.

    • BellaBella says:

      Yes. Why is anyone taking a story in The Sun seriously??? It’s poppycock. They just make stuff up and can’t stop the Meghan addiction.

      Same with US magazine and all the tabloids. I really think the only Meghan and Harry coverage we should pay attention to are real interviews they do and what appears on their IG account.

      Why play along with the trash companies?

    • yinyang says:

      Yes. The media is beyond disgusting, every once in a while I need to take a breather. So basically no one spoke about him, not Charles the Queen William Kate Harry, but Meghan. Meghan who’s only met him a few times and from a distance at that, but i’s Meghan stirring up trouble. People are always talking about Kate’s mental health, but I swear I don’t know how meghan does it. I’m surprised she hasn’t had a breakdown. I know I would. Ugh Excuse me, I going to watch some spiritual videos right now and calm myself down. Poor Meghan.

  5. TheOriginalMia says:

    Sounds like someone trying to imitate a California girl. If anything, Andrew probably disgusts Meghan. And what’s with framing this as something bad on Meghan’s part? The entire family should be disgusted with Andrew’s behavior and protecting his daughters from the fallout of his shunning. But no…let’s place blame on the black Duchess since we’ve already thrown her under the bus.

    • Britt says:

      Agreed. Harry and Meghan were smart to get away from that family, media and that sinking ship of a country. The only two people with some sense.

  6. DS9 says:

    The idea that anything written there is considered a radical opinion tells you everything about what’s wrong with the royal family.

    It’s the best opinion one could have of him given the evidence.

  7. Ali says:

    Another fake story

  8. GuestOne says:

    This is spin of that story from the Telegraph after the Andrew Newsnight a few months ago that initially said she was disgusted by it which was changed to something like friends of Meghan were said to be disgusted by Andrew.

    I don’t doubt Meghan& others in the family aren’t fans of Andrew& I can see him being a rude snob with gross jokes. But royal source sounds like a fellow Sun reporter or a courtier. Don’t think her camp is speaking to the paper Harry is suing.

    • Shirleygailgal says:

      Harry lost his suit. I read it on Twitter just a few moments ago….

      • Hi Shirleygailgal. Harry’s involvement in the hacker litigation has not gone to trial. Meghans suit against the 2 papers is scheduled to go to court in April. The “suit” you are referring to is a complaint Harry lodged with the British press commission about his use of editing in a photo he took of elephant conservation work and posted on SussexRoyal Instagram some while back. Harry had cropped out the tether on elephants back leg. One of the tabloids pulled the photo and printed it showing the tether and twisted the reasons he had stated why he edited photo. So he filed a complaint. The commission sided with the paper against Harry on the editing issue because the article only implied why they thought a Harry had edited it but never explicitly said it. Of course the RR is all over Harry’s loss.

      • Abena Asantewaa says:

        Harry’s suit hasn’t started. What you read was a complaint he made against the Daily Mail or Sun, for misrepresentation of some photos he took, the press complaint body, which is a toothless bulldog, dismissed the complaint, because they did not see anything wrong wirh The article.

    • Mac says:

      The entire world was disgusted. That is why Andrew got fired.

  9. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Yeah embarrassing is NOT what Andrew is. That’s like saying Weinstein is a silly wabbit, the big galoot.

  10. Nina says:

    We do not need the sun to create this story to know That Meghan does not like sexe offenders buddies.
    Funny that Andrew allegedly used racist language against Arabs.
    I can imagine what kind of jokes he makes

  11. Cosmo says:

    This doesn’t make the rest of the royals look good by saying that they are ok with what that pedo did.

  12. Nomen est omen says:

    Embarassing?

    Criminal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. kerwood says:

    It seems that the Duchess of Sussex is one of the very FEW members of the British royal family who finds any kind of association with a sex offender and associate of child traffickers, EMBARRASSING. The rest, including not one but TWO future kings and their consorts, don’t seem to have any problem at all.

    But Meghan’s the BAD ONE!

  14. A Guest says:

    Old Pedo Andy thought he was going to get rehabilitated in the wake of the Sussexit.

    Thus stories of him being the Queen’s “rock” during this turbulent time.

    Nope, not going to happen. If fact, this makes the Queen look worse. The talk is why did Harry have to give up his military titles, when the serial rapist didn’t.

    Somebody better get control of this ish soon, or Charles is going to be “The Last King of England”…

  15. Sass says:

    “Ultimate embarrassing uncle” is the ultimate misnomer of 2020.

  16. Awkward symphony says:

    And the others are apparently fine with “embarrassing uncle”!!!🤦‍♀️
    What a weird way to try to paint her as villain!!

  17. lara (the other) says:

    This might actually be a smart move. If ore information about pedo Andrew abuse of traffic girls comes out and involves the RF in a scandal they can’t swipe under the rock anymore, she and Harry are those who walked away and she is the one who said from the beginning, that she did not like him.
    I found believe she is disgusted by him and he is one of the reasons they left.
    But she can’t express her disgust, if they want to keep in any contscr with the royal family.

  18. lunchcoma says:

    I’m sure she’s repulsed, but I doubt that’s quite the way she expresses it. She knows what toxic men are like from her own family. She can probably see it in Andrew too.

  19. Charfromdarock says:

    I fully believe Meghan is disgusted by him. I do not believe she spoke to a royal insider.

    I am fully disgusted by the other family members who appear to not be disgusted by him and are protecting him.

    He is a child rapist. Full stop. He and all the other Epstein clients need to answer for their crimes.

    I have always been ambivalent towards the Monarchy. The fact that they are sheltering a pedophile makes want to burn it all down.

  20. What. . .now? says:

    The press are desperate to keep M & H in their every royal article. What’s the matter? No one clicks on the boring oatmeal royals? The only ones that ever generate any interest and clicks are M & H? Pathetic.

    If M & H keep it under wraps for a few more months, it’s gonna be hilarious. Starve the beast. Give them nothing! Let them rot and twist in the wind, the rat bastards.

    • Yeah they’re already doing reviews of all her outfits, her jewelry, her make up, her stationary choices and we are only into week two. What will it be by mid-February? Review of her sitting positions, her hairstyle choices, which paper towel she PROBABLY favors, Yada. Yada. Yada.

      • WendyWoo says:

        Oh, they already review how she sits! Remember her evil, protocol-breaking sin of CROSSING HER LEGS as opposed to Kate’s perfect “Duchess slant” (which Kate only does when she, herself, is not crossing her legs. Or flashing people).

  21. A says:

    There are tons and tons of people, royal and otherwise, who have not understood what it is about Andrew that’s supposed to be charming or likeable. He’s always been a boor, and that boorish, Hooray Henry type behaviour has been largely tolerated by his enabling mother. You can bet that if Charles, Anne or Edward displayed a fraction of the type of d-ckishness that Andrew did, they’d have been shut down so long ago their heads would have spun off their shoulders. He has always been crass and distasteful in general, and his disgusting criminal behaviour is only aided by the fact that he’s never had anyone in his life discipline him properly. I’ve heard that people in his circle don’t actually like him all that much, they simply tolerate him as much as they can, and that he’s spent years making money in a shady fashion by making people pay him for his connections and introductions. His association with Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell are parts of that.

    I don’t think that the palace expected anyone to circle wagons around Andrew. I actually don’t think Andrew was a larger factor in Meghan and Harry leaving at all. I think he was a part of it, in that he contributed to the overall bad attitude in that family, but I don’t think that Harry is actually all that close to Andrew to the point where he’s the straw that broke their back. The decision was ultimately made due to William’s poor behaviour, and the fact that none of the senior royals like Charles or the Queen bothered to step up and protect the Sussexes like they needed them to.

    • Sass says:

      Honestly I think what it boils down to with Andrew is “he was kind of handsome, and more attractive than his siblings” when he was young, and of course QEII is protecting him. That’s it. That’s all.

  22. Nic919 says:

    An embarrassing uncle is one who tells bad jokes or wears goofy outfits. Andrew is a criminal pedophile who victimized trafficked underage girls. The media needs to stop minimizing his crimes.

    • adastraperaspera says:

      Thank you. This story recasts him as a goofy uncle, which is an outright lie. I’m sure Meghan doesn’t think of him as her uncle at all. Ridiculous.

  23. Jaded says:

    Andrew is a bumptious, boorish cocksplat of a human being. He’s always had a childish “tits-n’bums” sense of humour which he shared with his equally bumptious, boorish ex-wife. He never grew out of behaving like a hormonally-charged adolescent and seems to be missing the “morality chip”, something that seems to be a problem with many men in the BRF. The combination was lethal and instead of being able to discern right from wrong, it’s “I can get away with this because I’m Prince F*cking Andrew so all you peons can sod off”. Certainly being mummy’s favourite has added to his general state of corruption and debauchery, no matter how awful he is she’ll always love him best and protect him.

  24. Scorpio ♏️ Rants says:

    Well she would be right……but she knew it when she married into the family.🤷‍♀️

    • Jaded says:

      My love for Mr. Jaded doesn’t depend on his horrible asshat of a brother whom neither of us have spoken to in years.

    • Sass says:

      I’m so sick of this bs line. Would you find something more original please? How boring

      • Scorpio ♏️ Rants says:

        Likely sick of it because it’s true. She did. I’m not saying she should accept him just that there weren’t any Randy Andy shocks. So chill.

      • morrigan01 says:

        @Scorpio stop with the BS. How they hell did she know about Andrew before joining the family? Unless you are one of those trolls that have been trying to spread the rumor that she was one of Epstein’s girls or something. Which is a special kind of disgusting and hateful trolling, but I digress.

        American life doesn’t revolve around the Royal Family, and Meghan’s life didn’t revolve around them before she married in. When someone in Canada once asked her to pick between Harry and William back in 2015 or so, she gave an indifferent shrug to the question. None of these people were on her radar until she started dating Harry.

        Unless you are a *deep* political junky, you had no idea about Epstein. I only learned of the guy in 2008 because of his connection to the Clintons, (and a huge info dump GOP ops did after Hillary lost the 2008 nomination), not because of the Royal Family.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Oh, tumblr has shown up again.

      As morrigan01 wrote, few people knew about Epstein and Andrew for years. It is doubtful Meghan knew anything about most of the royal family beyond glancing recognition of the Queen, Charles, vague recollections of Diana.

  25. aquarius64 says:

    Coming out about And may be smart. In case Bad Dad comes out and tries to sue for visitation of Archie.

    • Guest says:

      He has absolutely no legal standing to win visitation rights. Had he been a grandparent with a relationship with Archie and they then tried to keep him away, there might be a scintilla of a chance. But having never met the child (and/or several of his other grandchildren), there is absolutely no legal standing there. At all.

      • morrigan01 says:

        Also the fact that he has ZERO relationship with his *five* other grandkids wouldn’t help any case of trying to get visitation access to Archie.

  26. morrigan01 says:

    For goodness sake, this is coming from The Sun. The tabloid rag that called Meghan a porn star when she and Harry were first confirmed to be dating and a love scene from Suits was posted on pornhub. Meghan was threatening to sue them then, and is probably going to sue them just as soon as her suit against the Daily Mail is done.

    No source close to her is talking to The Sun.

    And personally, I think she feels a lot more stronger than “embarrassed” about Prince Andrew, given her feminism advocacy.

  27. yinyang says:

    They are subliminaly trying to associate her name with his.

  28. JennEricaMS says:

    Does anyone remember the story of Andrew beating the horses and dogs as a child? It been a while since I’ve read it but, if I remember correctly, the grooms at the stables threw him in a manure pile to teach him a lesson (and surprisingly they were never reprimanded by QEII). I don’t know if it’s true but it wouldn’t surprise me at all to find that it is. I can definitely see him being the type to terrorize animals as a boy.
