Meghan Markle’s attempt to ‘divert attention’ from blunders backfires
Meghan Markle may be using a simple trick to “divert attention” from potentially embarrassing headlines, a royal expert has claimed – but it does not appear to be working.
The Duchess of Sussex could be releasing stories with similar headlines to drive down search results on similar sounding stories that are embarrassing to Meghan, royal expert Kinsey Schofield claimed on her LA Diaries segment for Talk TV.
The host of the ToDiFor Daily podcast opined: “Perhaps these rumours of Meghan doing the Bodyguard sequel were just to dilute the Google searches regarding her negative relationships with bodyguards in the past.
“So if this story about doing The Bodyguard comes out, all of these stories about Meghan firing bodyguards or not getting along with bodyguards those are driven down lower, lower, lower, lower in the Google search results.”
Earlier this year, rumours swirled that Meghan had been shortlisted for a role in a sequel of the 1992 film The Bodyguard. The role was originally written with Princess Diana in mind.

Ms Schofield continued: “Same with Katy Perry. I mean, Meghan [went] to the Katy Perry concert last weekend. Oh, so she is friends with Katy Perry now or are we just trying to drive down the idea that Meghan and Katy Perry don’t get along on Google search?
“You guys say this to me too. It’s the idea that they try to divert your attention or drown out another story by pushing out a similar story so that they can control the narrative.”
But despite her apparent efforts, Meghan and Harry did grab headlines after the concert as the couple were slammed for flying on a private jet to see the Katy Perry show earlier this month.
The self-proclaimed climate-conscious couple flew from Santa Barbara to Las Vegas on a Gulfstream jet in a move branded hypocritical by some commentators. Prince Harry set up the charity Travelyst to promote eco-friendly tourism.

Royal expert Angela Levin told The Sun: “They think they have gotten so grand, they wouldn’t dream of taking a normal flight. They’ve got all these rich friends to pay for it. It’s worse than ‘do as I say, not as I do’ because he’s a patron of a charity.
“William was welcomed hugely in Singapore, which must have annoyed Harry and Meghan. This sort of behaviour is exactly why we call them eco-hypocrites.”
