Meghan Markle deliberately only used The Duchess of Cambridge’s name once during her now infamous chat with Oprah Winfrey to distance herself from the negative light, it has been claimed.
A new TV show by Discovery+ has dissected the explosive royal exposé by the Duchess of Sussex in which she accused Kate Middleton of reducing her to tears ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry.
Meghan and Harry: Recollections May Vary sees body language expert Dr Cliff Lansley, Professor of Linguistics Dawn Archer and Forensic Psychologist Kerry Daynes, all give their professional take on the chat.
After reviewing the clip when Meghan called out Prince William’s wife for making her cry, Professor Archer said: “Clearly Meghan cared about it as she feels unfairly treated and victimised here.
“We get 19 uses of ‘she’ or ‘her’ instead using Kate’s name.
“We can conformably state this is an example of distancing.”
Going into detail she continued: “We are talking about something that is difficult so we don’t want to use first names.
“One of the reasons that she might be saying she and her is that she is about to say something that will put Kate in a negative light.”
