“Not many things, by the way, but a few things that we wanted to do and couldn’t do, and it was a little irritating.”
Korsh mentioned one specific grievance was associated to the time period “poppycock”, which he’d deliberate to have Markle’s character say as a nod to his in-laws, who use the time period frequently.
“The Royal Family did not want her saying the word,” the producer and author claimed. “They didn’t want to put the word ‘poppycock’ in her mouth. I presume because they didn’t want people cutting things together of her saying ‘cock’.”
