Poor, poor Meghan Markle. This new duchess just can't seem to catch a break when it comes to shielding verbal attacks about her and her family. And now, this next one is coming from someone close to the royal family. According to a palace insider, Prince Charles's friend Nicky had some not so nice things to say about the Duchess of Sussex and her family.

  • The insider told HollywoodLife that Prince Charles's bud Nicky Haslam called Meghan's family "common" and even criticized her wedding dress.

    The source added, “Charles has been pretty disturbed by a lot of the press recently, and he thinks there’s been a definite snobby undertone to some of the reporting, albeit very subtle.”

    Prince Charles clearly has his new daughter-in-law's back. The two have really bonded since Meghan and Prince Harry became a couple, so it's completely understandable that he should be bothered by all of the nasty talk about her going on.

  • And, naturally, Prince Harry is also deeply affected by the nasty talk surrounding his new wife.

    “Harry has also been concerned over the seemingly never ending stream of negative stories about Meghan, it really does upset him, and he worries that the media are trying to tear apart Meghan, just like they did his mum, Diana,” the insider continued. 

    The death of his mother Diana has heavily shaped how Prince Harry lives his life, so he'll undoubtedly do anything he can to save Meghan from the stresses of the media. 

  • The source also stated that Nicky can expect a very stern talking to from Charles.

    Meghan never really dealt with this level of fame during her time as an actress, so extreme scrutiny is completely foreign to her. But we're so glad to see that she has the support of her new family. 

    Clearly, if you want to get to the duchess, you're going to have to go through her father-in-law and husband first.
