Meghan Markle revealed that she did not have access to her passport, driver’s license and keys while behind the palace walls – protocols likely to protect her, royal experts said.
The Duchess of Sussex, 39, revealed how “all of this was delivered” in her own Oprah Winfrey movie that aired earlier in the week.
Megan had to hand over her driver’s license under the security rules. If she goes out driving alone, she will not be protected, “historian Robert Lacey, who consults on” The Crown “on Netflix, He explained to the BBC.
Regarding the necessity to hand over her passport, this may have been taken for safekeeping.
“One assumes that valuable personal documents of members of the royal family are kept in a safe or in vaults – under the eyes of the general security of the palace,” said Robert Finch, who heads the pro-monarchy group in Canada, the Royal League of Canada.
“It seems to fit Meghan’s account of being trapped and isolated, but in reality it was routine, and maybe anything would be within reach of her if she wanted to,” Finch told the outlets.
In her interview with Winfrey, Markle said the elements were not returned to her until he stepped down from the royal family and moved to California.
“When I joined that family, it was the last time, until we came here, I saw my passport, driver’s license and my keys,” she said.
