Chloe Savage built her life around her work. She trained for seven years, mastering her embroidery skills first at the Royal School of Needlework in Surrey, U.K., and then at Paris’s prestigious École Lesage art school. She was among the one who brought Meghan Markle’s dream wedding dress to life. It’s been a while since Prince Harry and Meghan bid farewell to their royal roles and are living independently in LA with their son Archie, 1, Savage spoke in an interview about how she felt the Duchess of Sussex wasn’t ready for all the “rules and regulations” which is required of a British royal.

According to Chloe, Markle “misjudged” her role while noting how the royal family has “broken people before.” In comparison, Kate Middleton had plenty of time to “adapt and adjust” to the royal role, given how she dated Prince William for almost a decade before walking down the aisle whereas Meghan “sort of dived in headfirst.” It was only a year after their relationship became public that Harry and Meghan got engaged. Savage further stated how the royal family broke Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson alongside several others.

“I know it’s looser now than it used to be, but even then, I don’t think [Meghan] was prepared for the things she could and couldn’t do, say, and wear,” Chloe added. Savage felt that the former Suits star could have carved herself an outstanding role but unfortunately, found the whole thing “very difficult.” Chloe concluded that, while living an independent life as a singleton, Meghan was always able to do as she’s pleased when she’s pleased, “and unfortunately, with the royal family, granny rules — quite simply.”
