During an interview with GB News, Royal biographer, Angela Levin, slammed Markle for missing Serena’s special day. Talking about this, Levin said, “Meghan is still very much thinking about herself, what she’s going to do, how it’s going to be and how she can use people to move on and climb up the ladder … she’s a taker rather than a giver,” as reported by Sky News.
