Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie recently proved that they share a special bond. However, some sources are claiming that this is all just for show.

In its Jan. 24 issue, OK! magazine claimed that Markle is just using Princess Eugenie so she could get an inside scoop about the royal family.

Since Markle and her husband, Prince Harry is no longer considered as senior working royals, they no longer have first-hand information about what’s going on inside and outside the palace.

The source claimed that this is when Markle realized that Princess Eugenie’s services will come in handy for her. Without the latter knowing, the Duchess of Sussex is able to get information about the royal family through Prince Andrew’s youngest daughter.

“She’s still utilizing her as a go-between for her own ends. The duchess is using her as de facto message bearers to pass along her warm wishes to the Windsors. However, she’s also making excuses for her and Harry’s publish bashing of the family, along with veiled pleas for sympathy and understanding,” the source said.

The insider added that the royal family knows exactly what Markle and Prince Harry are doing to Princess Eugenie. But they are using to stay mum about the matter until it blows on Markle’s face.

“There’s only one way Meghan and Harry can earn their respect or have any chance of forgiveness and that’s to issue an apology in person,” the source said.

Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time that Markle has been accused of using Princess Eugenie.

In September, Woman’s Day claimed that Princess Beatrice is worried about her younger sister. After all, Princess Eugenie doesn’t realize that Prince Harry and Markle are just using her.

Princess Eugenie allegedly thinks that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are extra nice to her because they want to maintain a close bond with them. But this isn’t allegedly the case.

“Bea’s worried Meghan and Harry could betray their trust, as they’ve already shown they can do. The fact that they need Eugenie more than she needs them is a major red flag for Bea,” a source said last year.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt.

There’s no indication that Markle is using Princess Eugenie to get inside scoop about the palace. After all, there’s no reason for her to. If she wants information about the royal family, she could ask her husband, Prince Harry.
