Meghan Markle changed her Wikipedia page when she met Prince Harry

When you are related to the royal family in any way, you are going to come under intense scrutiny. It’s like that.

Meghan Markle knew this when she met Prince Harry – and she wanted to make sure the review portrayed her in a positive light, which I’m sure we can all relate to.

page 6 reported in 2020 that the then-actress’ Wikipedia page went through a bunch of changes in October 2016, before her months-old relationship with Harry came to light a few weeks later. The outlet claimed the IP address responsible for the changes was “linked to a Los Angeles PR firm with no known connection to the Duchess.”

At the time, the prevailing theory was that friends of Markle had requested these changes be made. Now, however, author Tom Bower claims it was the future Duchess herself who worked with the PR firm to get her page edited.

“At the end of September 2016, nothing was more important than her relationship with Harry,” Bower writes in her explosive new biography. Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors (opens in a new tab).

“She decided that her past history needed to be adjusted.

“On October 9, 2016, a Los Angeles PR agency edited their Wikipedia entry.

“The reference to the Agree or disagree the game show was removed, along with the description of his carrying case number 24. The tech also removed the reference to being a model.

“A section titled ‘Humanitarian Work’ was inserted. This described her visits to Rwanda and Afghanistan, and her speech in New York for UN Women and The Tig.”

Revenge should greatly displease the Duke and Duchess of Sussex: Bower is known for his incendiary portrayals of public figures, and has even been quoted suggesting he wouldn’t mind if his book damaged the Sussexes’ reputation further. A little weird to brag about, but OK.
