While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will never be the King and Queen of the United Kingdom, but they can now fully claim the title of the King and Queen of Whiners and Hypocrites.
The couple, who have seemingly failed to fully understand the irony of their messaging, have recently called on their followers to exhibit “compassion,” something the twosome have yet to reflect in their own lives over the last year.
A recent post on their website states, “Our mission at Archewell is to drive systemic, cultural change — one act of compassion at a time.
“We believe that compassion is at the core of all culture and connection in this world.
“Each time someone conducts an act of compassion — whether it’s mentoring a young woman or holding space for someone having a difficult day — our world becomes a better place.
“Compassion is at the core of everything we do. We hope you’ll join us in building a better world, one act of compassion at a time.”
But, as a pretty consistent royal observer, I have yet to really see either of the Hollywood duo reflect any “compassion,” unless it is of the self-serving variety.
For example, during the funeral of Prince Philip, Meghan had her PR company release details about the wreath the couple commissioned and how the former actress had included a handwritten note.
This wasn’t a move of a grieving couple showing compassion to a woman who lost her husband of 73 years, it was a vulgar PR stunt aimed at gaining attention for Meghan and Harry, regardless of other family members.
Not to mention Meghan’s decision to ghost her entire family, except for her mother, and Harry’s on the fast track to do the same with his family.
As they’ve shown over the two years really, Prince Harry and Meghan are completely oblivious to the irony and hypocrisy of their statement. Compassion starts at home, not harping on others to do what they are unwilling.
The act of their sanctimonious harping is wearing incredibly thin.
It’s also recently been revealed that Meghan gave her quiet support (that has now become public because no good deed goes on without a PR machine behind it) to Naomi Osaka, the tennis star who has spent part of this year complaining about a crucial aspect of her job, sitting for press conferences when she’s won and lost.
The young star now says that they are damaging to her mental health.
As Piers Morgan wrote for The Daily Mail, “What Osaka really means is that she doesn’t want to face the media if she hasn’t played well, because the beastly journalists might actually dare to criticize her performance, and she’s not going to ‘subject’ herself to ‘people that doubt me.’”
Perhaps Naomi thought it would help her case to mention Meghan, but all it does is remind the public that the so-called duchess shamelessly complained about her lot in life as a member of the royal family, while touring a country where many people live in abject poverty.
Apparently, no one asked if she was “okay.” Well, Meghan, did you ask the women you met in South Africa if they were “okay” living without a consistent income or the power of a royal title?
I’m going to guess the answer is no.
She also went to do an interview with Oprah Winfrey and her husband, where the couple whined about being “cut off” financially by his father and only left with the millions he inherited from his mother.
It’s important to note that Prince Harry had tens of millions in the bank, was in his mid-30s and was also still given money by his father.
But of course, Meghan and Harry are now so convinced of their own bullshit messaging that they sound more and more ridiculous every time they open their mouths.
They are no longer the Duke and Duchess of Sussex but the King and Queen of Whiners and Hypocrites.
