Four days after saying her "I Do" to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle has already started off on the wrong foot with her British royal in-laws.
Author Lady Colin Campbell talked to The Daily Star revealed that the Duchess of Sussex was the topic of conversation at their house on Wednesday, May 23, 2018, during the time she had done something "astonishing" at Prince Charles' 70th birthday party and the first-ever garden party at Buckingham Palace.
Lady Campbell is best known for her books such as "Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody" and for starring in "I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here."
And that's when tensions began. It was the first royal blunder of Meghan Markle, and it reportedly disappointed the royal family.
"I can't repeat it exactly, it's in the book, but what I can say is, something happened at the very first garden party at Buckingham Palace."
"We were all absolutely gobsmacked and astonished; we all thought this doesn't bode well."
She revealed how the entire British royal family wanted Meghan Markle to succeed, but there were already "warning signs" that emerged days after her wedding to Prince Harry.
"It was not a good harbinger, we were all hoping against hope the information was wrong, but of course, it was accurate."
Photos from that day showed the Duchess of Sussex looking cheerful and smiling with the Duke of Sussex and her in-laws, Prince Charles and Camilla.
Lady Campbell suggested that whatever allegedly went wrong that day was the reason for the reported "rift" between Meghan Markle and the royal family, that eventually seeing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex leaving the royal family.

"Virtually everybody I know, including my royal friends, the wider aristocracy, wanted Meghan to be a success."
Lady Campbell further said, "But it quickly became apparent the ride may not be as smooth as everybody had hoped it would be, and it would not be as quite as positive as everybody had hoped it would be."
