The “A Very Royal Narcissist” Series is an extremely useful high profile example of the behaviours of a Mid Range Narcissist who has ensnared an empathic victim as the Intimate Partner Primary Source. It also demonstrates the interaction with other individuals in the narcissists fuel matrix. The subject has been determined to be a narcissist based on extensive information over a prolonged period of time (see A Very Royal Narcissist 1 and A Very Royal Narcissist 2 ) and once again for The Hard of Understanding, this is nothing to do with race or gender, it is about narcissism. This Snapshot Analysis is provided for you to see the latest (and ongoing) behaviours of Meghan Markle, through the lens of narcissism so you are able to translate the behaviours and see what is REALLY going on.
This series is also designed to enable you to apply what you see here to dynamics you have experienced, either with romantic, familial, work and/or social interactions with individuals who you may now realise are a narcissist (for help in determining this, use this Narc Detector ). It is also a series that YOU can use to show to someone else who you may suspect is ensnared with a narcissist but who has not been able to see it. Since these various updates and analyses have been provided, many people have contacted me to explain they have now realised that they were ensnared by a narcissist and the articles gave them clarity.
The subject is a Mid Range Narcissist, this means she does not know what she is, does not see anything wrong with what she does, operates purely by instinct and will not change (see Is it Planning? to understand more and search “Mid Range” in the search bar above to increase your understanding.
The following information was reported in the British newspaper the Daily Mail. My breakdown is in bold and italics.
Meghan Markle has told friends there is nothing ‘legally stopping’ her and Prince Harry from using their Sussex Royal name, despite the Queen banning them from using it, DailyMail.com has learned. (The Queen banning its use amounts to Challenge Fuel to Miss Markle (see 3 Key Interactions for more ) which means that her narcissism must automatically and instinctively reject this Threat to Control. A narcissist exists to assert control over all relevant people at all times, as far as is possible and does so through a combination of manipulations, some benign and others malign. In this instance, the Queen´s declaration makes her the Prime Threat to Miss Markle´s control. Since it is the Queen, this is problematic for Miss Markle because
1. She will not be in a position to confront the Queen to argue with her about the ban
2. She is unlikely to be in a position to communicate directly with the Queen to debate the imposition of the ban.
This means that her narcissism will find it very difficult, if not impossible to assert control (and it must assert control) over the Queen. Instead, her narcissism reacts by causing Miss Markle to tell her friends that there is nothing “legally stopping” her and Prince Harry. This declaration evidences Grandiosity, Sense of Entitlement, Lack of Accountability. It is aimed at Painted White supporters who will no doubt agree with her (they are thus under control) and by making such a statement, Miss Markle´s narcissism will cause her to believe (in her world as she operates through a different Narcissistic Perspective) that is thus in control and has the whip hand. Therefore she has (in her world) successfully asserted control over the Queen. The Threat to Control has been dealt with.
The 38-year-old complained to her inner circle that using the name ‘shouldn’t even be an issue in the first place and it’s not like they want to be in the business of selling T-shirts and pencils,’ the insider said. (Pity Play, Sense of Entitlement, Poor Boundary Recognition)
They added: ‘Meghan said she’s done with the drama (Blinded to the Hypocrisy) (Also Assertion of Control) and has no room in her life for naysayers, (Black and White Thinking – you are either with me (you are giving me control and are painted white) or against me (you threaten my control and therefore you are painted black) (Assertion of Control) and the same goes for Harry.´(Speaking on behalf of Harry – victim seen as Extension of Narcissist, Grandiosity).
On Tuesday, the DailyMail revealed the Queen and senior officials agreed the two could no longer keep the word ‘royal’ in their ‘branding’, despite the likely thousands of dollars Meghan and Harry have already sunk into their website and trademark applications.
The news did not sit well with Meghan, as her friend explained: ‘Meghan said the global projects they are working on speak for themselves and they chose that name to protect the royal name, not profit off of it.’ (Grandiosity, Facade Management, Lie, Assertion of Control)
The friend continued: ‘Meghan said the name of their brand pales in comparison to the foundation they are building and the enormously positive impact it will have on people and the environment.’ (Facade Management, Grandiosity, Belittlement, Hypocrisy (if the name of the brand matters so little, why make such a fuss about saying there is nothing that could be done to legally stop its use. This shows the classic behaviour of certain narcissists by saying one thing and moments later contradict themselves but they are unable to see that they have done so. All that matters is control, so in one instant, to assert control Miss Markle declares nothing can be done legally to stop the use of the brand (because saying that is the most effective way to assert control as explained above) and then shortly thereafter claims the name isn’t that important, this being said in order to assert control in a different way.
But, the insider added: ‘Meghan has told her inner circle that their success is inevitable with or without their current brand name. (Grandiosity, Magical Thinking)
‘She said regardless of the name, Harry and Archie have royal blood and no one can take that away. And that as a family, they will always be considered royalty. (Character Trait Acquisition, Others As Extension of Narcissist)
‘She said they know what their true intentions are and that’s all that matters. (Haughty – such delicious irony in that statement also, since a Mid Range Narcissist never knows his or her true intentions owing to the blinding effect of that type of narcissists narcissism.)
DailyMail.com did not receive a response from Meghan’s team after reaching out for comment. (Silent Treatment)
On Wednesday it was announced the couple would no longer have an office at Buckingham Palace starting in April, following their decision last month to step down as senior royals. The source added: ‘Meghan told her close friends that letting go of their staff (in England) shouldn’t have come as a surprise to anyone. ‘ (Pity Play, Blameshifting, Lack of Accountability)
