Harry and Meghan need to grow up and stop attacking the Firm, says expert

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix documentary concluded today (December 15) amid a flurry of controversy.

The final three episodes of the six-part series, titled Harry & Meghan, saw the Duke and Duchess of Sussex make a series of bombshell claims, including that Buckingham Palace had leaked stories about the pair – but royal expert Kinsey Schofield is not convinced.

"They've spent nearly three years airing their grievances," Kinsey remarked.

"Grow up. Inflation is at an all-time high, there is still a lingering plague, Harry's family just lost the Queen and these two egomaniacs can't think of anyone but themselves.

"And stop preaching about how Harry's family acquired their power – from your fake Montecito, California mansion. Harry should Google the shocking savagery of America's history. No one should be blamed for their ancestry.

"This entire storyline is exactly what President Barack Obama spoke out against when he said call-out culture is not activism. In 2019 he said, 'If all you're doing is casting stones, you are probably not going to get that far.'

"Their activism is shallow. Meghan jumps on the bandwagon… but at the end of the day, it's all about Brand Meghan."

The finale of the six-part series saw the pair launch numerous claims against the Royal Family, including that the Palace had leaked stories about Meghan in a bid to preserve their own image.

In the run-up to their interview with Oprah Winfrey, the couple claim they were hit with a barrage of strategically-timed bullying allegations against Meghan.

"The timing of the bullying story has even been admitted by the journalist that wrote it that it was done explicitly because of the Oprah interview," said James Holt, executive Director of the Archewell Foundation, said in the documentary after sensational headlines about Meghan's behaviour in the Palace were flashed onscreen.

The documentary then goes onto a clip from ET Canada which says: "Harry and Meghan's spokesperson tells us and The Times this: 'The Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma.'

"'Let's just call it what it is – a calculated smear campaign based on misleading and harmful misinformation.' You could tell… I was like, 'Oh my gosh, someone's panicking over there.'"

In one of a barrage of comparisons between Princess Diana and the Duchess of Sussex, Harry said the experience reminded him of the way his mum was treated while she was a royal.

"I can't think what my mum went through all those years ago by herself.

"To see this institutional gaslighting that happens is… it is extraordinary.

"That's why everything that's happened to us was always gonna happen to us. Because if you speak truth to power, that's how they respond."
