'Meghan Markle just wants to be an influencer with a superiority complex'

Meghan Markle wants to be "an influencer with a superiority complex", according to showbiz commentator Kinsey Schofield.

Her comments come as the Duchess of Sussex has sparked fresh speculation she is planning to launch a wellness brand after being spotted wearing a new calm anti-stress patch.

The former royal was seen wearing the patch on her arm while out in Montecito, California, last week.

The patch in question is made by a company called NuCalm, which sells a variety of products designed to help people relax and de-stress.

But Ms Schofield, who is also the host of the ‘To Di For Daily’ podcast, believes that Meghan is more interested in being an influencer than a wellness coach.

Speaking to TalkTV's Jeremy Kyle, Ms Schofield said: "I don't think she wants to be a wellness coach - I think she just wants to be an influencer with a superiority complex.

“She wants people to think that she is forecasting the future, that we need all eyes on Meghan because she's going to wear it and do it first."

Jeremy agreed with Ms Schofield, describing Meghan focus on self-promotion at odds with the Royal Family's ethos of service.

He said: "The problem Megan was always going to face very quickly within the confines of the royal family was that they're about service.

“They are not about glamour and glitz - the Queen was always don't complain and just carry on.”

Jeremy compared Meghan's publicised use of the patch to the health guru career pivot of actress and GOOP founder Gwyneth Paltrow.
