TALK OF THE TOWN: Meghan Markle took off furiously at boyfriend who hated her emojis … as another friend warns: don’t whine
It’s become the bane of modern communication: writing a damning text message about someone and accidentally sending it to them.
Now imagine making the horror worse by recording a non-complementary voice note about the Duchess of Sussex – then accidentally pinging it to her phone.
Well, I’ve heard this is exactly what happened to a friend of Meghan’s, a woman who apparently has a knack for arguing with friends about perceived contempt at the best of times.
While I cannot reveal this friend’s name, I hear that the person is offended about the incident. After all, it’s hard to argue that someone else was joking when it’s so clearly your voice on the recording.
Needless to say, the incident reportedly soured the relationship with the Duchess, and I have been told that the couple has drifted apart.
A friend of Meghan Markle got into a fight with the Duchess about her use of emojis in messages
My source says: ‘One of Meghan’s British friends got into a fight with her because Meghan wrote all these messages with loads of emojis. The friend dictated a WhatsApp voice message and said, ‘God, Meghan is so annoying with all her emojis, she keeps sending me all these emojis’.
“But then the friend accidentally sent the voice memo to Meghan instead of a mutual friend.”
With this particular friend now seemingly toned down from the Easter card list, Meghan and Harry’s collection of close British friends seems to have watered down even further.
Who can forget how old friends like Harry’s former ‘wing man’ Tom Inskip weren’t invited to the evening reception at Frogmore House after the Royal Wedding in 2018, when the likes of Oprah Winfrey made the list, even though Harry barely knew her.
I also hear that the Sussexes don’t talk much to Jack Mann, one of Harry’s oldest friends. At one point, Jack was tipped off to be the prince’s best man.
A Baywatch actress turned aristocrat has added her name to the list of Meghan’s acquaintances who fall over herself to publicly support her. But I don’t think she hurt the Duchess.
“You don’t want to be seen as whiny, and that’s a very dangerous thing,” warns the Countess of Devon, the American known as AJ Langer, until she married Charles Courtenay, 19th Earl of Devon in 2005.

In English culture, being angry is an embarrassing trait, especially for women. It is considered inappropriate. ‘
AJ – who used to be in the same acting circles as Meghan – tells the Duchess podcast, “I was raised not to be selfless, but to be authentic and to use my voice to be empowering.”

Forget sausages and beans – Sienna Miller’s eight-year-old daughter Marlowe survives on a diet of oysters and… fish eyes.
Marlowe is kind of a pescatarian, says Sienna, who reveals, “Marlowe is quite picky. She eats strange things. She doesn’t eat rice, she’s eating a fish eye, she’s trying an oyster, but she’s not eating mashed potatoes. It’s quite a challenge. ‘
