Lady Colin Campbell is writing a ‘biography’ of the Duke & Duchess of Sussex too

The official birthday of the British Sovereign, The Trooping of the Colour, London, UK.

There have been so many conversations about Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s (mostly authorized) biography on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, called Finding Freedom. I joked in the podcast that I find the title a bit gaudy and melodramatic, but it’s not like Meghan and Harry chose the title. Besides that, Finding Freedom will likely be an oasis of interesting and truthful information about the Sussexes, unlike all of the other books coming out about them this year. We’ve previously heard about some Kensington Palace gossip-history book, which just sounded like a summary of stale tea with some added anti-Meghan lies and smears. But it looks like Lady Colin Campbell will also be writing a book about the Sussexes. From the Mail’s Talk of the Town column:

Just as Harry and Meghan were hoping a new biography – Finding Freedom – would make us love them again when it’s published in August, I can reveal that aristocrat Lady Colin Campbell is ready to rain on their parade with her own tell-all book at the same time.

She tells me: ‘It’s called Meghan And Harry: The Real Story. There are plenty of revelations. I’ve had members of the Markle family to stay, but I’m not saying anything until closer to the book launch.’

Lady C, whose previous controversial works include volumes on Princess Diana, turned to unusual methods of research this time. The 70-year-old enlisted the help of her two adopted sons, Dimitri and Michael, who appeared on an MTV reality show with Meghan’s nephew – cannabis entrepreneur Tyler Dooley.

[From The Daily Mail]

“I’ve had members of the Markle family to stay” made me wince. I wouldn’t put it past any of these “biographers,” journalists or commentators to invite an unhinged White Markle into their home so that they can just act as stenographers to whatever batsh-t stories the White Markles want to sell. Anyway, all of this to say… if she does release this book, I can guess which Sussex biography will be excerpted by the Daily Mail. *cough*

For those people unfamiliar with Lady Colin Campbell, she was threatening to write a tell-all about Prince Philip’s wandering eye, and she was also planning to name names of some of his many mistresses. Most recently, Lady Colin was kicked off various British shows for being unhinged about Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein – she made the argument, on air, that Epstein wasn’t REALLY a pedophile because he only “solicited” sex from girls as young as 14. Ah.

    Will is just be “MEGHAN IS A WITCH” copy and pasted for 300 pages?

    • Priscila Bezerra-Fischer says:

      Quite possibly, with a hint of racism and a touch of ableism.

    • L84Tea says:

      For real. She may as well title it “Pile of Trash”.

    • Nita says:

      To all the aspirant/aspiring Meghan/Harry and Meghan ‘tell-all biographers’, who have planned to jump on the ‘monetize their names’ bandwagon, I say this:
      forget it, it will be a disaster in terms of revenues. Why?

      The Brits/monarchist, won’t buy it; many set back and have aloud their press/media to run hate and defaming campagnes against M/H&M, and many believe what their (tabloid) press/media feed them. Haters only want to hate, so most of them won’t spend their money on it; some jealous ones might buy it though. Real Meghan fans worldwide, are extremely good at finding and presenting receipts; they are not going to put money in the pockets of hateful, talentless, opportunistic, anti M/H&M charlatans. So, if your credentials tell them that you’re not impartial or worst, part of the smear and character assassination campaigns against Meghan/ Meghan and Harry, well, then you … better quitely crawl back to your attic to practice your favourite hobby.

      • Tessa says:

        I can see Campbell’s book containing the usual smear campaign: she was mean to the dogs,, she had an extra husband, Doria’s “prison” record, Sam was “right,” Tom was perfectly justified going to the media because he paid for Meghan’s education, and how she ‘cast a spell’ on ‘weak” Harry. Same old same old.

  2. Yoyo says:

    Well if she had the Dooley boys stay at her to get information, she backed the wrong horse.
    Aunt Megs held me once, when we visited our great grandmother. The last time I saw her I was eight.
    My mother thought the markles were trash and changed our names to her maiden name, but when Meghan got engage to Harry, the markle name was not so bad after all, $$$$$.
    Colin is always writing about someone.

  3. Bettyrose says:

    Never heard of her so I googled…and what a story. The only part that seems relevant here though is she was only married to this Lord Campbell for several months in the 70s and has used his name ever since. Her own family has money but her connection to titled aristocracy is pretty tenuous. So she’s basically a social climber with a vendetta?

    • Sofia says:

      She was Princess Margaret’s friend for years. She even appears in Season 3 of The Crown (last episode of the season)

      Edit: and it was her husband who brought Mustique and made it the royal getaway it’s known as today

      • Tia says:

        It was Colin Tennant who bought Mustique. He was married to a Lady Anne Coke (an Earl’s daughter so known as a Lady Anne until her husband inherited the family title) until he died. Lady Colin Campbell *wishes* she was a friend of Princess M.

      • Sofia says:

        Ah! Getting me aristos mixed up!

        Apologies! I saw Colin and guess my brain frazzled

      • Couch potato says:

        Wasn’t it lady Glenconner who was brought to a brothel on her honeymoon by her husband?

    • Talie says:

      I saw a video of her recently – I can’t figure out that accent. Is she for real with it? Seems like she has built a very strange persona.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        She was born in Jamaica to an old landed gentry family and raised there. I believe she was educated in NYC. This may account for accent.

      • Still_Sarah says:

        @ Talie : I had a friend from South Africa who married someone from North England (strong accent), had a best friend from Australia and worked with/ hung out with a lot of Americans. And we met while we were both working teaching in China. Even she admitted her accent was all over the place as a result of this.

      • alibeebee says:

        My father’s family is from Jamaica .. and quite high and mighty posh posh people ( I am not posh ) It was a scandal he married my mum .. His Family all sound like Lady Colin.. you can hear the hint of the Jamaican accent and then something else. My Aunt Ruth Sounds exactly like Lady Colin.. So it’s hard for me.. because I love my auntie Ruth I love how she sounds .. and then this less than favourable character sounds just like her :( so yeah

  4. ABritGuest says:

    Another biography. As she will be speaking to relatives& I’m guessing people claiming to be friends of either Meghan/Harry going by British media, this must mean this is their book and they have authorised it. And surely it’s bad timing because of the pandemic&they should keep quiet? No none of that commentary for this book? Quite interesting

    Not sure why anyone would listen to that rapist apologist but her feelings on Meghan have been clear-calling her vulgar for editing Vogue& basically calling her a Jezebel who has ‘enthralled‘ Harry. Expect more of the same with the Markles repeating same ‘Meghan is awful and ghosted us’ lines they have been doing in the Fail& other papers for years now. Yawn

    • BayTampaBay says:

      “Meghan is awful and ghosted us”

      I do not think this is the type of book she will write and no one will authorize her book but her. People will either speak “on the record” or they won’t. Lady Colin Campbell is very very well connected to British Aristocracy both titled and untitled.

      • Tessa says:

        I don’t think the royals cared about the smear campaign against Diana, but they did IMO care about the Queen Mum book she wrote. I don’t think she’s “accepted” in too many places.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Tessa – I read both books and really do not think she did a smear campaign on Diana or The Queen Mum. I think she presented many different opinions, a tonne of gossip and tried to piece together the truth.

        Like you, I do not think she is “accepted” in Royal circles but the British titled and untitled aristocracy is a strange bunch based on USA middle class standards. I believe Lady Colin Campbell has many “friends” in the British aristocracy.

      • Tessa says:

        Diana was accused of being pregnant with Hoare’s baby in a later book by Campbell. Which was totally disgusting and repellent and no proof of it whatsoever. It was he said she said or she told this person who told another person who told Campbell.. In comparison, the earlier book was harmless. Campbell wrote of the Queen mother being illegitimate and the daughter of a cook that her titled father had an affair with. Even though the Queen Mum looks like her mother Lady Strathmore. She also said that George VI cheated on her with a musical comedy actress. And she had to be artifically inseminated with George’s sperm since she could not get pregnant the “natural way.” And the latter is a rip off from Kitty Kelley’s book the Royals. It was more than different opinions to me it was tabloid trash.

    • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

      Is she going to call Anne vulgar for her coming up Guest Editing gig? Didn’t Charles do one as well? Oh, wait…I forgot…it’s only vulgar when done when Black. Silly me.

  5. Em says:

    Yay another bash fest🙄. They better get everything out of their system this year and not bring bad vibes into 2021

  6. Seraphina says:

    She really needs to cut her hair. She looks like a witch.

    So many people trying to tell Harry and Meghan’s story. Hilarious.

    • Jillian says:

      Only that front section is her hair, the rest is a very silly looking wig

      • SomeChick says:

        All I can see is that scary wig. It’s not even the right color!

        Everyone wants to make bank off Meghan. Most, by sliming her. Particularly the ones who don’t have any actual information. *YAWN*

    • Jana says:

      She looks like a guy in drag makeup, best be worrying about that Lady!

      • Well she was raised as a boy and it wasn’t until she was much older that she had “gender corrective surgery” to present herself as a female. (She is not classified as transgender which is being born as one sex but psychologically identifying as the other sex. She was born with both sets of sexual organs and is thus classified as gender neutral…..totally different definition.). She has lived off her “Lady” title forever although she was only married to the guy for a few months but failed to reveal to him that she was born sexually neutral, raised as a boy, and had surgically chosen to correct herself physically to present as a female. There’s some complicated psychological shit in her background. Still calling herself Lady and acting like she is practically related to the royal family should tell you a lot about what an insecure bitch she really is. Her book on Diana was not bad, but she had “great empathy” according to her, for Diana. (Personally, I think it’s because Diana was the white, aristo princess Lady Colin would kill to be.) However, she has been very vocal — almost rabid — about how very much she hates Meghan —- and yet has never met her. That she would stoop so low as to kiss the Markel’s collective asses by having them stay with her, shows you just the type of book she’s going to write. The book will be trash, 100%. The book won’t be fair. Just go to the stuff she provides her “very good friend” who writes Royalfoyables. The posts on Meghan are really ugly and she is quoted constantly. If you try to post that you disagree, your post is not allowed to show.

      • Jensies says:

        Regardless of whether she identifies as intersex, which is what @JA Lowcountry seems to be saying, can we not take it to a transphobic place, @Jana?

      • minx says:

        The years have not been kind to this person. There are 70-year-olds who don’t look that hard.

      • Tessa says:

        Campbell shifted her “sympathy” To Charles and blasted Diana.

      • Elizabeth Rose says:

        Wow, that explains so much! My immediate thought was that it wasn’t a woman and now that makes sense. They present very masculine.

        And to the person saying, can we not take this to a transphobic place. I’m sorry but all I can say is, “people in glass houses, shouldn’t throw stones.”

    • bamaborn says:

      Lol! My first thoughts were, “is this w*tch still around?” We can never get a break.

    • Nita says:

      @bamaborn, she is a w*tch. A very bitter twisted one with personality issues. If you know of her upbringing and background, you would feel pity for her – somehow, but she herself has no compassion for other women. In fact she hates successful and gifted women. She has built a ”look at me being a celebrity aristocrate’ career for herself being nasty to others: in her eyes she is the perfect aristocrate who knows all the (hidden) rules, manners and maneuverings of royalty and aristocracy. Read the books and your will become an instant ‘expert’, I would say. Anyhow, I do believe this wannabe aristocrat needs a therapist.

    • Still_Sarah says:

      I am neutral about Lady Colin Campbell but I don’t really believe she has inside sources for the BRF. I think she has access to the same silly gossip that everyone else hears. Society chatter but not much more.

    • I think those are extensions. Worst weave ever.

  7. Eleonor says:

    Who is this woman.

  8. BayTampaBay says:

    I think the book will be fairly even-handed. The book she wrote on Diana at the same time Andrew Morton was writing his book was very even-handed and very fair.

    The reason I think the book will be fair is that she does not have an axe to grind with either Meghan or Harry and is not a big fan-stan-supporter of The Cambridges.

    • Sofia says:

      I would google “Lady Colin Campbell and Meghan Markle” and see what sort of comments she’s made. She may not like the Cambridges but it’s not like she’s been totally fair with the Sussexes either.

      I believe it’ll be quite snarky with the usual “Meghan is controlling our poor Harry! We must save him!”

    • Becks1 says:

      If she’s relying on the Markle family for her inside gossip ,then no, it wont be even handed and fair.

    • Yoyo says:

      Are you serious? She is just another liar.
      Lady Colin is a monster, a crushing snob and a complete fake, says the man who married her.
      Lord Colin Campbell In his first interview for 40 years, about his ex-wife, said I was stunned, I could not believe what I was hearing.
      He could not bring himself to look at his wife let alone touch her, after she told him of her shocking past.
      “My brother the Earl of Argyll, called and asked: ‘Do you realize you have married a man?’

      • BayTampaBay says:

        I believe she is a crushing snob but I am not convinced she is a monster, a complete fake or a liar. I enjoyed both of her books on Diana.

      • Ginger says:

        What?! I did not know this. Of course, I have never heard of this person before in my life. Wow!

      • MsIam says:

        That is the story I’ve heard, that she is a transgender woman and supposedly her husband did not know and divorced her soon after he found out. Who knows if that is true. At any rate she’s not a nice person. She was the source of the “Meghan plans to go back to the US and run for president” stories. Maybe someone needs to write a book about her.

      • Tessa says:

        Her books about Diana were horrible. She had very lurid stories about Diana which I can’t mention here. She claimed to be a friend of DIana(she wasn’t).

      • BayTampaBay says:

        Lady Colin Campbell is not transgender. The medical condition she was born with is described in detailed on Wikipedia.

      • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

        She’s not “transgendered”. Transgendered people are born with one set of sex organs, but always feel they were born into the “wrong” gender. She was, at birth, what used to be known as a “hermaphrodite” (born with both sets of sex organs, one usually a bit more predominant than the other). Some parents chose a gender for the child and did surgery right after birth…others didn’t, and just chose to raise the child as one gender or the other. In Colin’s case, they raised her as a boy, no surgery. SHE chose to be female, and had the surgery/hormone treatments to present as female.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @(TheOG) jan90067 – That you for your excellent clarification. This condition is an excellent subject to read up on. I find Lady Colin Campbell’s journey through this trial and tribulation very interesting. I am sure she is not the only person who has had to go through this type of thing. Thankfully the medical profession now has the means and tools to do genetic gender testing at birth if it is necessary.

      • SFbay says:

        @BayTampaBay here from another bay I agree with you her journey and trials is interesting. Her personal history especially with her marriage to Lord Campbell and his treatment of her makes me more likely to root for her than against her. I don’t understand some people on here, and the love hate for the BRF. You do realize Lord Campbell is the one who was born in the royal family right, and his attitude is pretty much stuck up royal and all that entails.

        However, she has made some comments about the Sussexes which weren’t fair. I doubt the book will be impartial to the Sussexes. I’m not all that enthralled with the Omid Scobee book either, as I fear it will be an advertisement for their brand with no real stories about the BRF. As with both books, I guess we will have to wait. Maybe one or both will surprise us with some interesting real information and fun gossip.

    • MsIam says:

      @Btb anybody that defends Andrew and Epstein is trash. I wouldn’t put one dime in her pocket. And the fact that she is turning to the Markles as her “source” makes her double trash.

      • bamaborn says:

        Second that…Msiam!!

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @MsIam – I agree with all you say. However, I have watched and read many discussions-debates on this issue arguing that medically and legally Andrews behavior is not pedophillia. There is another term for what he is but I cannot remember off the top of my head.

        However, everyone debating the terminology conclude that Andrew is one sick puppy.

      • Tia says:

        Ephebophilia, I think (paedophilia is technically sexual attraction to children pre-puberty). This term covers attraction to mid to late adolescents.

        Still at the least unpleasant and at the lower end of the age range illegal. Of course, that’s without the sex trafficking which makes it all illegal.

        Of course, the BRF thought it was fine for Princess Margaret to be groomed by a man in his late 20s at 14, for Queen Elizabeth to be deciding on Philip as a husband (and Mountbatten pushing the idea) when she was a similar age and for a 30+ Charles to marry an 18 year old Diana.

      • SFbay says:

        I think there is a psychiatric definition of pedophilia which would be the pre-pubescent body attraction, not just the victim is under age. Frankly, I could personally care less about a bit of laymen’s stretch on the definition, except for society in general. It just seems when it comes to sexual crimes against women there has to be more. It’s not just enough you were raped. In order to get attention your rapist must have raped you under age or raped 100 women or who knows what else must be there to garner the needed attention. This worries me as I believe there are many sexual crimes, probably the majority which don’t fit that criteria. Now Lady Campbell due to her unique first two decades of life, may have a stronger connection to the intricacies of these things.

      • Vera says:

        I believe the term to describe Andrew is ‘rapist’

      • Redgrl says:

        @msiam – yep
        @btb – I think you are referring to hebephelia which is an attraction to barely pubescent girls (I.e generally 11-14 vs pedophelia which would be attraction to prepubescent and ephebophilia which is later pubescent). Regardless of the definition, there’s the whole grooming, power imbalance, human trafficking component that she just glosses over. I saw an interview she did and it was disgusting – suggesting that it was ok and that they were 14 and not victims. Completely clueless and evil – supports the “oh that lower class girl should thank her lucky stars a prince deigned to touch her” attitude. Which of course SexualAbuserAndy has as well.

  9. Sofia says:

    Will this book cause meltdowns with the RR? No it won’t because it’s not being written by someone who’s nice to Meghan and the author isn’t a POC like Omid.

    And quite frankly I don’t see her being any different than Paul Burrel – both trying to cash in on their connections to royal women who have been dead for two decades now

    • Sofia says:

      oops getting my aristos messed up – but my main point of both her and burrell being royal hanger-ons still stands – except lady c has no direct royal connections ;)

    • Tessa says:

      Burrell did work for DIana. Lady Campbell had no connection with Diana, Diana stayed far away from her. Yet Campbell claimed to be her friend and wrote defamatory stories about her. She also wrote about the “parentage” of the Queen Mother and shamelessly borrowed stories from Kitty Kelley’s book The Royals.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        Diana approached Lady Colin Campbell to write “her” book before she approached Andrew Morton. Lady Colin Campbell refused to write a book with only Diana’s side of events. The first book Lady Colin Campbell wrote showed the very ugly sides of all involved.

      • Tessa says:

        Diana never approached her. She approached Diana who saw through her.. Andrew Morton was the one Diana wanted and they had a mutual friend who played go between–the go between was someone DIana trusted. There was NO mutual friend to be go between for Diana and Campbell. Diana wanted her side out there and if that Campbell got hold of it, it would have been a disaster. I think Diana got Campbell’s number very fast. No way would Campbell have refused DIana if she made such an offer. SHe is an opportunist and nothing could have stopped her.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        Tessa – Diana did approach Lady Colin Campbell.

      • Tessa says:

        No way would Diana have wanted Campbell to write that. I saw a documentary about how Diana cooperated with Morton using go a between. Campbell’s name never came up. I think it is campbell’s imagination an she wrote horrendous things about Diana claiming to be her friend.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        Tessa – You are correct. Diana did not want Lady Campbell to write the book she wrote. Diana wanted Lady Campbell to write the book Andrew Morton wrote. Lady Colin Campbell refused to do so and proceeded to write the book she wrote.

    • Tessa says:

      I totally disagree. Diana would have realized dealing with Campbell was a disaster waiting to happen.

    • grumpy says:

      Er the author is POC like scoobie – he is persian, she is lebanese jamaican

  10. Who ARE these people? says:

    How many My Little Ponies sacrificed their tails for her hair?

  11. Snap Happy says:

    Nevermind.

  12. Sandy says:

    Hahaha who is this old hag that has nothing of importance to say about anything?

  13. Harper says:

    But Lady Colin Campbell won’t publish until after Harry & Meghan’s book, because she and the Markles are going to go chapter by chapter through that, coming up with lies to refute everything.

    Now Omid may not be authorized to spill all the beans in his book (cough cough Willileaks) but I certainly hope he includes very strong hints as to what went on. Enough for some other intrepid reporter who doesn’t care about currying favor with Wills & Kate to go after the Cambridges.

    At the very least, I am hoping for the Sussexes’ reaction to the Cambridges’ commercial flight stunt.

  14. GR says:

    If I were a casting director hiring an actor to play the role Unhinged Racist Aristo, this lady would be first on my list.

    • ADS says:

      Her picture really does speak a thousand words. A thousand words that can’t be unheard.

  15. SJR says:

    She has been making good money by giving her opinions on the BRF for decades.
    I always that she was shady. Royal hanger on with publishing connections, sells her cheap and bitter thoughts to talk shows, etc.

    Not interested in hearing from her if she is Team Andy.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Especially since it sounds like she earned the title of lady by conning some simple minded aristo she’d known for a few days into marrying her, they quickly divorced, and she’s been walking around with his name for more than 40 years. And Meghan’s the one who bewitched her way into a title? I’m having a strangely visceral reaction to someone I only just heard of this am.

      • ADS says:

        Considering her history, it is gobsmacking to me that she feels perfectly comfortable judging and smearing another women. Especially one whose integrity so clearly outpaces her own.

    • Aud says:

      You summed it up well.

      She married into her title but the marriage only lasted for a month or so. Common sense says she should have dropped the title.

      But she kept it to seem connected when she’s really nothing more than a tabloid journalist.

      But casual readers will see Lady and assume she’s a legitimate insider.

  16. Ali says:

    ‘Lady Colin’ can write a book of lies but no issues from the British media.

  17. caty says:

    This old racist broad also trotted out the familiar dog whistle of how “Meghan didn’t know she would have to work hard” playing on the poc are lazy trope without directly saying it, for a column in the DM. This harpy is desperate for attention

    • Bettyrose says:

      I thought Meghan’s problem was working too hard, not knowing her place? Can we get one consistent smear narrative please?

    • MsIam says:

      I thought it was that old biddy friend of Princess Margaret who claimed that. Saying Meghan thought she would be riding around in a “golden carriage “. Which is super dumb considering everything Meghan has said publicly about how she saw her role. The BRF probably wished Meghan would have been happy riding around in a carriage all day.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      @caty – That was Lady Anne Glenconner who made the statement about working hard not Lady Colin Campbell.

      • MargaritasForBreakfast says:

        Ms. Colin Campbell is trash and has joined in on calling Meghan vulgar, etc. It’s quite disappointing to see anyone invested in defending this trashy reality show faux aristo harpy.

  18. IntheKnow says:

    I only see a seccubus here.

  19. Coco says:

    I guess the old saying is true: “Just because you have an aristocratic title, it does mean you know how to draw on your eyebrows.”

  20. Tia says:

    Lady CC assuming Meghan is a social climber who married Harry for his title is a living example of a person assuming everyone has the same motives and ethical standards she does.

  21. Marjorie says:

    This woman throws stuff against the wall and claims victory when some of it sticks.

  22. February Pisces says:

    She looks like one of the witches from Hocus Pocus.

  23. Florence says:

    I recommend looking up the clips of her on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

    That’s what we see her as in the UK!

  24. Ruby_Woo says:

    Well she has to make money somehow, now that she’s been blacklisted from going on UK morning shows as a ‘royal expert’ after denying that Epstein wasn’t a ‘real’ paedophile.

    • Likeyoucare says:

      I don’t think any famous publisher want to publish her book about meghan.
      Who wants to buy it and if they do, it will bring shame to her for the low sale.
      Thousand of click baits from haters in the daily mails are bots. Bots will not buy books.

  25. Tessa says:

    Campbell wrote defamatory stories about DIana, she made up a backstory of the Queen Mother’s parentage. She also claimed to be DIana’s “friend” when DIana wanted nothing to do with her.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      There was no made up story. The story about the Queen Mums parentage was old gossip that had been circulating in aristocratic circles for years. she says as such and presents the story as such. Lady Colin Campbell’s books are all gossipy.

      I am NOT taking up for Lady Colin Campbell. I am only stating my opinion her books. They are gossipy and I like gossip.

      • Becks1 says:

        @Bay I’m going to disagree and say that you certainly are taking up for Lady Colin Campbell. all of your comments here are defending her and her gossip books.

      • Tessa says:

        Campbell lifted a lot of her Queen Mum book from Kitty Kelly’s the Royals. Oddly enough Kelly’s book was banned in the UK yet Campbell’s was not. The Queen Mum looks so much like her mother Lady Strathmore I don’t believe this gossip.

      • Prairiegirl says:

        BayTampaBay – Her books are incredible, delicious, dirty dirty gossip! I’m certain there are nuggets of truth in there covered in layers and layers of caked-on BS. I almost don’t care what her motivation is, the stories are just so wild!

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Becks1 – I enjoy her books. I am defending her right to write a book if she wants to. I am glad her book is being published. I am sure there will be much juicy gossip I have never heard before. Once I read the book, I will decided what I believe and what I do not believe. As I have said many times on this site, I would love to know the whole truth because there are so many missing pieces to the puzzle of this story. I hope between the Scobie’s book and Campbell’s book I will get more of the truth.

      • Tessa says:

        Truth and Campbell do not belong in the same sentence. IMO

      • ABritGuest says:

        Why would you expect truth from Lady Campbell’s book? She’s getting input from the Markles who are proven liars& grifters. Samantha lied on TV about her dad meeting Harry& even the nephew Tyler who didn’t seem as bad, made up interactions between his family& Meghan which he walked back.

        People like Doria or their loyal friends aren’t going to speak to her so it will be bitter ex friends like Ninaki, maybe Skippy (if he’s not a friend anymore) so it will be same story we’ve heard already.

        Her previous comments on Meghan include calling her cheap, vulgar& irresponsible for guest editing British vogue, graceless who would have embarrassed Diana, disturbingly self confident, said the way she has treated the Markles was appalling, a narcissist, someone who has enthralled Harry& has him under her thumb. What about that seems even handed& this book isn’t going to be a major hit piece? The racism& need for Meghan to ‘know her place’ drips with that comment about being disturbingly self confident& I wouldn’t expect someone who says that to be able to give an unbiased account.

      • SFbay says:

        Are we really going to use Kitty Kelly as an example of a well researched biographer? Most of Kelly’s books are considered crap, with the exception of her book on Sinatra. Now I agree Lady Campbell’s Sussex book is probably going to be crazy as she seems to be, and most likely not complimentary to the Sussexes. Still, we could be surprised on this as her love/hate for the royals is hard to define. She doesn’t like the Cambridges much either. Oddly she seems to like Andrew more than Charles and Camilla. Plus, her book on Diana did have the true story on James Hewitt and her bulimia which had never been published before her book. I don’t suggest buying her book, but I’m sure the hotter tidbits will be covered and if it is interesting then read it. She supposedly met with some of Meghan’s family, and who knows it’s possible she thought they were crazy horrible people like most on here. I feel she is a wild card and the book could be more sympathetic to the Sussexes than some on here think.

      • Tessa says:

        The Hewitt story and the bulimia were unconfirmed until Hewitt’s confessions in 1995 to Pasternack and the bulimia confirmed by Diana herself in 1992 and later in 1995 in the Bashir interview and Diana confirmed Hewitt’s confession in same interview. Before Colin wrote anything, back in 1982 the eating disorder rumors were rampant when Diana looked very thin. Only Diana and Hewitt knew the “true Story” not Campbell. I think she’s being given way too much credit.

    Why is this twisted FREAK even given a platform, or the time of day?

  27. Liz version 700 says:

    There is nothing about this lady’s history or persona that makes me wanna go buy a book from her….

  28. Deanne says:

    This isn’t just about Meghan and Harry for me. I find it awful and unbelievable that any idiot and their dog can write a ‘biography’ about another person and print distorted facts and blatant lies. If she’s seriously using the Markles as experts on the supposed real story, she’s clearly not interested in the truth. Meghan’s already suing the tabloids for lies, surely she can sue this ‘Royal Expert” too.

    • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

      This beyotch would love nothing MORE than for Meghan and Harry to bring more attention to this trash by bringing a lawsuit for slander/defamation, printing Markle garbage. I doubt H&M will even deign to give it a cursory, fleeting thought, if that.

      • Elizabeth says:

        They should sue. They could have her book withdrawn from publication and take any profit she made.

  29. aquarius64 says:

    Finding Freedom may do some damage to the Markles. Meghan may have signed off for Omid and Caroline to go after them and bring the receipts. Colin’s book won’t get traction because the Markles will spout off and won’t bring proof.

  30. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    My son is 14. If she came for him, I’d shave her head and tattoo pedaphile on her face.

  31. Elizabeth says:

    Wow literally defending Epstein. The internalized oppression in this woman is a sight to behold. I am sickened for any children she ever had contact with.

    It’s pretty telling that white men get away with literal crimes while a Black/biracial woman can’t even breathe in peace.

  32. Vanessa says:

    It’s Amazing how all of these royal reporters spend years attacking Meghan and calling her and Harry irrelevant . Their so irrelevant yet the royals reporters are so quick to want to write about them and making money off themselves especially Meghan This person is clearly bitter racist white woman who just jealous .

  33. Valiantly Varnished says:

    So…basically she’s garbage? Got it.

    • ArtHistorian says:

      I definitely think that she’s not a good person and her defense of Prince Andrew is just gross and inexcusable. However, it would be nice if people would stop with the gendered insults. In these comments she’s been called a hag, a harpy, a bitch, a witch, a succubus and a freak, which is especially nasty since she was born intersex. She’s a nasty piece of work but we don’t need to use insults targeted at her gender – using them is just continuing a patriarchal attitude that implicitly demeans women for being women.

  34. yinyang says:

    What a strange looking woman…Well Meghan we can’t pick our family and you have trash from all sides, hopefully this passes quickly…Hey Brits biracial people are very common in the West, so much so they’re our playmates in the schoolyard, our bestfriends, and part of our families, we don’t bat an eye at them, we don’t make a big deal about them marrying in, you really need to get over this singleling her out. Meghan was telling the truth when she said before dating she didnt know much about the rf apart from seeing them on magazines and maybe seeing Kate’s butt flashing escapades on the internet, the monarchy is not the centre of the universe like you’d like to have us believe, and it’s not an exclusive club we all want to be apart of, it’s disgusting, no humble person imo would want to be apart of and be groveled over at for doing nothing. Why do you think Harry left home and William the manchild stayed.

    • Mercury says:

      @Yinyang best comment hands down!!!!

    • Nyro says:

      One of the funniest thing about royalists is that they think these people and this institution actually matters to the rest of the world. The Megxit trolls are convinced that Tyler Perry is helping the Sussexes because he wants access and to ingratiate himself into the lives of their queen and the future futures. 😂😂 Like, they really think that a Black American man from Louisiana, who went from abused and homeless to damn near billionaire due to his own hard work and creativity, is enamored with a 94 year old colonizing white woman who’s never had to work a day in her life yet has inherited the earth. They really don’t know Americans. Black Americans especially. They think because we watch a royal wedding or funeral every ten or 15 years that we actually admire these people. It really is hilarious.

      • David says:

        It seems that the Brits think the same about us. We don’t really KNOW their classist ways until something like this happens and brings it to light on a world stage.

  35. L4frimaire says:

    She’s a strange person and persona. She was briefly married to some boorish aristocrat, whose name she still carries. He divorced her when he found out she was born intersex and was raised male. That part of her life and story is very interesting and surprised she doesn’t use her life story in a more positive way. She is such a petty fame whore and so thirsty. She basically uses her tenuous aristocratic connections as an income generator. Maybe she should write a biography of Prince Andrew, since she’s so sympathetic to him.

  36. Ni says:

    This is what happens when you wear a wig without watching Drag Race first. Girl NO.

  37. Jaded says:

    She is unbelievably crass and has been dining off her brief and loveless marriage to Lord Colin Campbell all her life. They married after knowing each other only 5 days, he spent much of his time hunting down illegal uppers and downers, and when he left her a few months later he told the media it was because she’d had a sex change operation and was originally a boy. It was not that at all, she had malformed lady bits which were later corrected when she was 21. In any event, she’s a pretty nasty piece of work. Some of her most unhinged quotes:

    “You all seem to have forgotten that Jeffrey Epstein, the offence with which he was charged, and for which he was imprisoned, was soliciting prostitution from minors. That is not the same thing as paedophilia.” Oh….? How do you know he wasn’t forcing younger girls into sleeping with him and others? She was promptly sacked from the plum gig of turning on the Christmas lights in Prince Charles’ hometown of Tetbury in the UK.

    She also said that the Me Too movement “prevented men from being men” and called Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, “cheap, vulgar and irresponsible.” So I can’t imagine what trash she’s going to write about her. The “Failures” and fans of Emily Giffin will eat it up but little of what she writes is credible.

  38. HK9 says:

    This woman sums up what the “establishment” in the UK has come to-they are petty, desperate, lying, racist, out of touch, and salty with bad hair.

    • Flying Fish says:

      LOL, so true.

    • grumpy says:

      Shes jamaican

      • David says:

        @Grumps
        I’m assuming people think she’s just a regular ole Brit and not someone raised in a different country. Her life honestly sounds brutal after doing some reading. People had some pretty nasty things to say after her autobiography. The pearl clutchers were pretty bad back then too.

  39. Redgrl says:

    She’s despicable. And stupid. And entitled. And likely the lower level female grifty version of PedoAndy. I’ve heard the interview comments that Jaded cited above and they are galling.

  40. David says:

    So this woman has an incredibly interesting life story and chooses to rag on these people? How lame. I’d pay to read a book about her life. It’s like Middlesex but nonfiction.

    • MaryContrary says:

      That’s what I was thinking. I want HER story.

      • David says:

        @MaryC
        I like your name. So I went into a hole last night. She did an autobiography a long time ago and I saw articles where people just couldn’t believe she would talk about her ‘gynecological’ issues. It just goes to show that throughout the decades people will always have strong and differing opinions. Personally she sounds like life has been pretty rough but fascinating and she is at least a damn good hustler.

  41. Lola_Lola says:

    She reminds me of the villains on Scooby Doo that unzip themselves at the end to reveal another person in a mask and costume.

  42. Awkward symphony says:

    Another levinlike witch desperate for relevancy😤, whatever she does it’ll be a flop but her ilk will try to sell it to their Kkk crowd. She lost alot of people (even anti Meghan) when she defended Epstein and almost called pedophilia as an addiction/habit which people should be more understanding of!!! What a sick freak

  43. Marivic says:

    Her book will be a sales disaster ! All lies all around.

  44. CJT says:

    She looks like man in drag.

  45. Bobafelty says:

    She looks like an elderly Jeffree Star

  46. IntheKnow says:

    ‘She’ is the face people see when they are having sleep paralysis nightmares…succubus/inccubus.
