Just when she thought her life was in perfect order, Meghan Markle is facing fresh heartbreak.
The soon-to-be royal has been left devastated after a series of embarrassing nude pictures from her past surfaced online last week.
The National Enquirer reported that a top-secret website had leaked photos and videos of the former Suits star cavorting around topless during a summer holiday.
Other pictures depicted the 36-year-old unclothed, sipping champagne in a hotel room.
Tellingly, Meghan and fiancé Prince Harry were notably absent from the annual Royal Easter service last week.
‘Meghan can’t believe that she’s been hacked and this scandal is out there. This is literally her worst nightmare come true,’ spills an insider.
‘With the wedding just weeks away, the last thing she wants is to be in hot water with the Queen and the senior royals – she’s absolutely mortified.’
Adding further to the scandal is the fact that Meghan is seen in the pictures wearing the blue bracelet she shares with Harry – the one the prince gave her during their 2016 trip to Africa.
‘These photos, if real, are recent,’ a mole told the Enquirer. ‘This is bound to cause even more embarrassment to the Queen and the monarchy, as it would suggest that she sent those images to Harry.’
An unclothed Meghan is seen sipping champagne while wearing the blue bracelet Harry gave her – this means the photos are quite recent ones.
Although Meghan may have angered the Queen, at least she can rest safe in the knowledge that her future husband is sticking by her side.
Reports suggest the prince is ready to ‘go to war’ with the website and launch legal action.
‘Harry has assured her that the photos will never see the light of day and to relax, but Meghan is a mess over it.
‘She has been trying so hard to make a good impression and win over the public and the royals, and she feels like this has really blown that chance.’
