Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped down as working royals from the British Royal Family due to the “intense scrutiny” that comes with the job, in a bid to live a more “private” life. So this next move, that included the front cover of TIME magazine and a spread inside, has sparked criticism that the couple are not exactly escaping the “glare of the cameras.” The pair also signed a major Netflix deal in March, rumoured to be worth £150 million. 

Speaking with the presenter on Sky News Australia, media writer Sophie Elsworth discussed the “hypocrisy” of the couple.

The presenter opened the conversation with: “Let’s move along to Prince Harry and Meghan and their goal of having a quiet life away from media intrusion, sadly that’s taken another hit after the formally royal couple posed for photos to feature in TIME magazine’s most influential people edition.”

She went on to say: “Apparently lying about your family to Oprah makes you widely influential.”

“I don’t understand this, but wasn’t the whole reason that they abandoned the Royal Family was so that they could have some privacy and live their lives away from the glare of the cameras, explain this latest photoshoot Sophie.”

Sophie then says: “Rachel I can’t explain it, I mean their privacy is being breached yet again, this toxic duo love their heads in the media, they’re constantly mouthing off, lecturing to people what they can and cannot do, we saw that sit down with Oprah which was just awful to watch.”

“We’ve seen them dictating for things such as on climate change, then we see Harry jump on a private jet from Aspen to California.”

“I mean, this hypocrisy from them is ridiculous and I think this couple have no credibility, I’m sick and tired of hearing from them, and I really wish they went to America and lived a quiet and happy life and left us all alone.”

In 2016 the couple first mentioned their bit for privacy, when they issued an official statement on the Kensington Palace Twitter account. 

The letter, written by Prince Harry addressed the “harassment experienced by Meghan Markle and her family,” adding that the Prince was “worried about her safety.”

This was the first of many public statements the couple made condemning the British press and asking for their privacy to be respected. 

Five years later and the Duke and Duchess are still firmly under the spotlight, confusing royal watchers as to what it is the couple wants.

The media attention for the couple heightened in March 2020, when they did a sit down interview with Oprah Winfrey. 

The claims made were catastrophic, with allegations of racism, and claims that the institution drove the Duchess to suicidal thoughts. 

The Palace responded to the claims with a statement that said that the claims were being taken “very seriously,” but added that “recollections may vary.”
