Royal experts criticize Prince Harry and Meghan Markle upon the recognition
Instead of The Kardashians, experts have said that the Sussexes are trying to keep up with The Obamas. Commentator Kinsley Schofield in his interview with Express.uk labeled the sidelined couple as an “unfortunate inconvenience” to the imperial family of Britain. In addition to that, the host of the To Di For Daily podcast has claimed that the pair is lacking self-awareness. “they are polarising,…it is hard to understand some of their decisions,” the host further continued.
Interesting list of special guests attending the @RFKHumanRights Ripple of Hope Awards. Along with Michael Bescheloff, Alfre Woodard, & Forest Whitaker is a name that Suits fans will know, Rachael Harris, aka Sheila Sazs. Should be a fun mini-reunion.

“Prince Harry and Meghan Markle don’t realize how laughable some of these PR stunts appear to be,” she said. The pair was also criticized in comparison to the former Princess of Wales Lady Diana. Schofield further remarked stating that “if it wasn’t for Diana’s DNA running through Harry’s blood…“, they would have been reduced to nothing. The experts continue to bombard with such explosive criticism and black lashes.

Schofield’s words were carried forward by Royal author Ian Lloyd. He had previously claimed, Harry and Meghan like to “emulate” the Obamas. Reportedly, they have been trying to become global influencers and goodwill Ambassadors like Barack and Michelle. The trail of backlashes does not end as Piers Morgan has also added his opinion on the same. In one of his countless interviews targeted at the pair, he said the couple receiving the award was completely shameless.
Do you agree with all the royal experts on their views of Harry and Meghan?
