Did Meghan Markle stop eating garlic weeks before meeting Queen Elizabeth so she’d have fresh breath for their first encounter? That’s the claim from one of this week’s tabloids, but Gossip Cop can set the record straight. We’re told it’s “made-up.”

The National Enquirer announces in a headline, “The Queen Just Adores Meghan Markle’s Breath!” In the accompanying tale, which is seemingly littered with fake quotes, the often disproven magazine ridiculously asserts that the Queen “approves of Markle’s breath.” According to the tabloid, Prince Harry’s “future bride” was told she’d need to “stop chomping on/cooking with garlic weeks before meeting the lad’s grand-granny.”

In bizarrely unnatural language, a so-called “royal spy” is then quoted as saying, “Nervous Meghan had cut her garlic intake months ago, wanting desperately to please Queen Elizabeth.” The outlet’s questionable “insider” goes on to purport, “Happily, her breath smelled as fresh as a daisy!” Unlike the Markle’s breath, however, the tabloid’s story just stinks.

The entire article is nothing more than a fabrication. While it’s true Markle met Queen Elizabeth at her summer residence in Balmoral, Scotland earlier this year, the “Suits” actress didn’t stop eating garlic months in advance of her visit so she’d have fresh breath. We’re pretty sure, however, she did brush her teeth. In any event, a Markle source tells Gossip Cop the story is “absurd” and “made-up.”

Of course, Gossip Cop is not remotely surprised by the supermarket tabloid’s latest piece of fiction. In May, for instance, we corrected the Enquirer when it falsely alleged in an outrageous report that Markle shaves Prince Harry’s pubic hair. What’s more, we even debunked the magazine just weeks ago for wrongly claiming Markle had a “lifetime obsession” with Princess Diana. Much like those bogus stories, this newest article is equally untrue.
