Meghan’s wedding guests could ‘hear a pin drop’ after subtle message in speech

Meghan Markle may have taken a possible swipe at the royal family during her wedding speech, it has been claimed.

The outspoken former Suits actress, 39, did so when she laughed at the star-studded ceremony and said, "I know it's been a while" in 2018, her biographers say.

Meghan and Prince Harry have gone on to step down as senior royals, moving to Meghan's native US.

They have also recently signed a £112m deal with streaming giant Netflix.

In Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie and Caroyn Durand claimed the Duchess of Sussex referenced the fact she hadn't given a speech recently during her wedding.

They wrote: "A first for a royal bride, the move reinforced the idea that this American was no typical Duchess.

"'You could literally hear a pin drop', said a close confidant, who described the speech as a momentous occasion even for the Americans.

"'For her to have been quiet for as long as she had, and then have this really safe space where she could give these heartfelt remarks, it was a really special moment', the source said.

"She spent so many years, whether on campus, on TV, or advocating for women to be empowered, speaking out. And she's respected that.

"'She does have a lot of respect for the family and the institution that she has joined. Bit it's just a different way of living. We'd missed hearing her speak'.

"And apparently Meghan felt the same way, because she laughed, 'I know it's been a while'."

During her speech, the new Duchess of Sussex thanked the Queen for welcoming her into the family and Prince Charles for stepping in at the last minute and walking her down the aisle.

Once in the royal family, Meghan started to get used to her new position and the expectation to remain quiet.

However, it has reportedly been difficult for her to adapt, and an insider claimed she was heard muttering "don't I have a voice" during an engagement with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
