Meghan Markle was not ‘Duchess Difficult’ at her wedding but ‘friendly’ and ‘down to earth’ member of choir claims


MEGHAN Markle earned the moniker “Duchess Difficult” from palace aides following a string of reports over her “demanding behaviour.”

However, Karen Gibson who was a member of the choir who sang at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s 2018 nuptials claims that simply isn’t the case.

Karen appeared on this morning’s episode of Lorraine where she spoke about The Kingdom Choir’s new single.

Speaking to Christine Lampard about the royal couple, Karen said: "They were wonderful, they were very down to earth and very friendly.

"We heard a bit of Harry's voice as well."

Asked about Meg’s reputation for being difficult, the “Godmother of gospel” said: "I have to say I didn't see the person that some people are talking about.

“Like any couple they liked things just so – you have a particular vision for your day and why not?

"You want it to be lovely both for the world and for each other.”

At the Royal Wedding the choir performed the classic Stand By Me.

Speaking of their performance, Karen added: "I think the song was very special to them and how it sounded.”

Meghan was branded "Duchess Difficult" back in 2018 by Palace insiders as her demands become too much for aides, according to reports.

The mum-of-one was at the centre of rumours about her "dictatorial" behaviour and 5am emails - after another aide quit.

In other royal news, we told you that Meghan has a "lawnmower" style of parenting, while Kate is a "lighthouse."
