According to an excerpt from the book published in the magazine, Megan later called with a senior assistant at Kensington Palace.
Megan “said little during the call, choosing instead to just listen to advice. But after the refusal, she felt frustrated and emotional,” the published excerpt read. “Although she knew that the assistant had good intentions, the surreal experience of someone from her boyfriend’s office telling her what jewelry to wear or not to smile at the photographer was too much.”
After an excerpt from the joint book, Megan later called a friend and said, “I can’t win. They make me guilty of these pictures, which seems to encourage them, that I even admit that the cameras may not be sending the right message. I I don̵7;t know what to say, only yesterday people on the Internet said that I looked pathetic in the photos because I was just trying to ignore [photographer]. “
The authors report that Megan “felt damned if she did, and damned if she didn’t.”
