A certain website claims to “exclusively” know Meghan Markle’s reaction to Prince Harry attending the same event as ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas, but the story is made-up. Gossip Cop is assured that no one in the actress’s inner circle spoke to the blog about the situation.
On Monday night, Prince Harry attended a caroling service at St. Luke’s Church in London to raise money for the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Trust, which funds schools in Uganda. Bonas, an English model and actress who the royal dated from 2012 to 2014, was also present at the charity event, but the two arrived separately. HollywoodLife now purports to know how Markle feels about her fiance crossing paths with his ex.
The site quotes a so-called “insider” as saying that the former “Suits” star isn’t bothered by the run-in because she understands Bonas is “part of the whole London aristocrat set and it’s a very small world.” The outlet’s alleged source adds, “Meghan’s bound to cross paths with Cressida now that she and Harry have gone public. Meghan hasn’t been part of his social scene because they were in hiding… Cressida is very much a part of that wider circle and eventually she and Meghan will come face to face.”
Although it’s true that Markle isn’t upset about her fiance attending the same charity event as his ex, Gossip Cop is assured that the unreliable site didn’t get this information from anyone close to the actress. The issue with this particular article isn’t necessarily that it’s inaccurate, but rather that HollywoodLife tries to dupe readers into believing it has insider information about the royals when it doesn’t. The details of the outlet’s story are reasonable guesses, but they didn’t come from any actual sources and most assuredly not from Kensington Palace.
Unfortunately, the webloid has a habit of pretending to have insight into the romance between the actress and royal. Gossip Cop recently busted the site for falsely claiming that Markle’s family was pushing her and Prince Harry to “have a baby right away.” Shortly before that, the untrustworthy blog pretended to know Queen Elizabeth’s reaction to Markle and Prince Harry living together. This latest article is more speculation and fan fiction sold as “exclusive” reporting.
