Millie Mackintoshwho became known for participating in the reality show “Made in Chelsea”, was a very close friend of Meghan Markle since 2015, but alleged that Markle moved away from her when she began her relationship with Prince Harry.
In the latest episode of the “Mumlemmas & More with Millie & Charlie” podcast, Mackinstoh confessed that Meghan cut off all communication with her.
“She killed me (…) I never heard from her again and I never sent her a message again because I felt like she told me to f*ck off basically in that message. Meghan Markle ‘ghosted’ mebaby, “he said on the podcast, where he also revealed that he just wanted to know if Markle was okay in the face of the media avalanche.
“I know what it’s like to have a lot of media attention. It can be really overwhelming and unpleasant, so I messaged him and said, ‘Hey, I hope you’re doing well. I’m thinking of you,” she said.
Mackintosh said Markle’s response was abrupt, a message he’d never gotten. “What I read from that message was that maybe he needed some space. She maybe she needed to calm down, she was angry, maybe she was under a lot of pressure… So I didn’t text him again... But I hoped we would keep in touch,” he said.
The 33-year-old influencer believes that it was all because Markle didn’t want to be associated with a reality TV star. “What could I offer him at that moment? She had met the prince of him. I was on a reality show so… I guess he said, ‘I can’t associate myself with ‘Made in Chelsea’. I’m going to be real,’” the British star said.
Mackintosh also confessed that this situation made her feel like “a bit of s**t”, even more so when she realized that she was not invited to Harry and Markle’s wedding in 2018.
“That was quite painful because I had not done anything, but my name is being dragged in a very negative way (…) It was a bit embarrassing”, he said in the podcast, since at that time some media highlighted that Mackintosh had not been invited to the wedding.
