Meghan Markle’s claims about her son, Archie, ‘escaping a fire’ during a trip to South Africa have been ‘disputed’ by royal sources. 

The Duchess of Sussex claimed ‘the heater in the nursery caught fire’ during a 2019 trip on the first episode of her new podcast.

However, royal sources told the Daily Mail they ‘do not remember’ it happening how she described.

They apparently told the publication: “While they do not remember there actually being a fire, the heater was certainly smoking and was unplugged and dealt with.”

In the Archetypes podcast, Markle recalled: “We immediately went to an official engagement in this township called Nyanga, and there was this moment where I’m standing on a tree stump and I’m giving this speech to women and girls, and we finish the engagement, we get in the car and they say, ‘There’s been a fire at the residence’.

“What? ‘There’s been a fire in the baby’s room’. What?”

Referencing the nanny, she continued: “She was supposed to put Archie down for his nap, and she just said, ‘You know what? Let me just go get a snack downstairs’.

“And Lauren’s from Zimbabwe, and we loved that she would always tie him on her, her back with a mud cloth, and her instinct was like, ‘Let me just bring him with me before I put him down’.

“In that amount of time that she went downstairs, the heater in the nursery caught on fire. There was no smoke detector. Someone happened to just smell smoke down the hallway went in, fire extinguished.”

Markle went on to claim she had to ‘go out and do another official engagement’ despite the incident.

After listening to the podcast, royal source Angela Levin tweeted: “Meghan outraged that she had to go on another royal engagement in S. Africa after she heard there was a fire in baby Archie’s room.

“Nasty to hear but as an actress doesn’t she know the show must go on.

“Luckily he wasn’t there but odd it was never leaked to the press.”
