Um, maybe they are just being themselves? One royal author and critic is slamming Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for supposedly trying to set up “some sort of alternate woke royal family” with their two children, Archie Harrison and Lilibet Diana, in California. This comes after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a statement about the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan. Here’s what you need to know.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a statement, in which they admitted to feeling both “devastated” and “speechless” over the current events in the Middle East and President Joe Biden’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from the region. The Taliban moved into several cities in the country in recent weeks, culminating in the takeover of the capital city of Kabul over the weekend.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Slammed For “Setting Up Alternate Woke Royal Family”
“The world is exceptionally fragile right now. As we all feel the many layers of pain due to the situation in Afghanistan, we are left speechless,” Harry and Meghan said in their statement.
But according to royal author Angela Levin, she just thinks they need to zip things up.
According to The Daily Mail, she put it this way: “I think Harry and Meghan’s grandiose, comfy and caring comments about the situation in Afghanistan, the disaster in Haiti and new Covid variants is another example of them trying to set up some sort of alternate woke royal family. Like most of their “compassionate” gestures there is no indication about what they themselves will do and whether any donations will be going through Archewell Foundation.”
Levin added: “Their comment that they want to ‘alleviate suffering among those we know and those we may never meet – that will prove our humanity,’ sounds so similar to their recent comment we must be compassionate ‘to those we know and those we don’t know’ that makes it sound equally phoney.”
So far neither Prince Harry nor Meghan Markle have made any comments about the criticism.
