Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are the new Kardashians – only they're less talented TV goons, says Patrick Christys
So Meghan and Harry are the new Kardashians. Only, arguably, even less talented
They had grand plans when they turned their backs on royal life and, indeed, this country. But actually, they’re just low rent, high maintenance reality TV goons.
The Montecito Monarchs are yet to create any content for Netflix despite penning a $100m deal with the streaming service.
In fact, Meghan Markle’s animated show Pearl, which was planned to centre on the adventures of a 12-year-old girl, who is inspired by influential women from history.
It’s not hard to see why that was cancelled. I’d rather watch a re-run of Crossroads. In fact, I’d probably rather stick pins in my eyes.
Apparently the show was only in the development stage though, like Harry’s brain.
But now they’re going to be followed around by a TV crew as part of a Kardashian-style show. Great, another show about phenomenally wealthy vacuous Hollywood celebrities.
Look, the money’s great. I’d probably do pretty much anything for $100m but, actually, it’s a sign of how far they’ve fallen, certainly Harry.
It’s strange for a couple of wanted to find freedom and escape the public eye to sign up to do a show that involved having a camera crew follow them around the whole time. It’s almost like they don’t actually want privacy, isn’t it.. It’s almost like they just want to be as rich and famous as possible.
They have swapped the true, high-calibre class of the Royal Family for plastic novelty fakery.
The thing was, the British public really loved Harry. Like genuinely, really loved him. And he’s turned his back on that for people like James Corden and Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres. Let’s see how long those names stick around if things start to go south for Harry and Meghan.
They were supposed to be going their own way and doing meaningful things, instead they’re doing something that’s akin to the Kardashians or, frankly, Real Housewives of Cheshire.
Supposedly the Netflix show is going to come out in conjunction with Harry’s tell all book. I’m not sure how much his book deal is, but it turns out you can put a price on betraying your family, making your elderly grandma’s life difficult and alienating the country of your birth.
I don’t know about you, but I have absolutely no desire whatsoever to watch a fly-on-the-wall show about a B-list soap actress and Meghan Markle’s bag carrier.
Yes, it may be true that Harry and Meghan are rich, rich, rich, but actually, I think the way they’ve gone about speaking their truth and finding their freedom is cheap, cheap, cheap.
