A leading anti-monarchist has blasted Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for offensively trying to have it both ways after their dramatic, self-serving exit from senior royal life, the Express reports.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as Meghan Markle and Harry are also known, boldly announced in January that they were exiting the inner sanctum of the Windsor dynasty in favor of a life overseas. And yet, they have sought to capitalize on the fame and connection that royalty has brought them — without putting in the onerous work required of senior royals (ribbing cutting and whatnot).
Graham Smith, the CEO of Republic, which seeks to obliterate the British monarchy, spoke with the Express and lambasted the Sussexes’ two-faced attitude toward royalty.
“I would not suggest that anybody follows their example because they are trying to have it both ways,” Smith said of Harry and Meghan Markle’s actions since exiting senior royal life.
“They are trying to exploit their status and titles for their own personal gain as far as I can see.”

“They need to make a decision, break away from the Royal Family completely or don’t and stay with the Royal Family,” Graham continued in his rant against the behavior or Meghan Markle and Harry since they bounded out the exit door and ensconced themselves in the wealth and privilege of Montecito, California.
“The royals should separate themselves from the taxpayer, we don’t owe any of them a living.”
Graham is livid that Harry and Meghan Markle have been leveraging their royal status to negotiate hugely lucrative business deals — the post-exit couple has scored a reported $100 million to $150 million for a mega-deal with Netflix — even without having to shoulder the responsibilities of actually being working royals.
The anti-monarchist isn’t the only one speaking out against Meghan and Harry this week. Never one to forgo the juicy chance to strike down upon the Sussexes with great vengeance and furious anger, British TV motormouth Piers Morgan has trashed them by comparing watching their expected “woke” Netflix shows to enduring an agonizing dental procedure, The Sun reports.
He told the Sunday Mirror: “I am looking forward to all their woke documentaries with the kind of enthusiasm I look forward to having root canal surgery at the dentist.”

Before Meghan Markle became a duchess and then promptly exited from royal life, Morgan actually knew the American actress and star of the show Suits. Once, he attempted to give her some media advice, only to have her give him the royal cold shoulder.
The bombastic TV personality has sworn vengeance worthy of a Shakespearean tragedy ever since.
In the past, Morgan has heaped abuse on the Sussexes by, for example, suggesting that their production company should be known as Megxit Productions. He proposed a send-up of “The Crown” called “The Frown,” which would evoke the recent stage play, “King Charles III,” only in this case instead of the Prince of Wales finally becoming the British monarch, Harry and Meghan Markle reverse their dramatic exit and become King and Queen of England.
Meanwhile, the Daily Star reports that the ailing 99-year-old Prince Philip — Queen Elizabeth’s husband and Harry’s grandfather — has been left “deeply upset” by the duke and Meghan Markle’s royal exit.
Prince Philip was left “deeply upset” by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to step down as senior royals, an expert has claimed.

Royal expert Ingrid Seward reports that Prince Philip regards Harry and Meghan Markle’s exit as indicative of truly “alien behavior.”
When Meghan Markle and Harry announced their plans to royal exit life at the beginning of the year, they shockingly gave the Queen only 10 minutes’ advanced notice.
For his part, Philip attempted to provide the wayward couple with some sage advice. But they reportedly ignored him entirely and he wound up washing his hands of the whole Megxit mess.
Speaking of messes and frayed social ties, Meghan Markle’s onetime bestie, Canadian TV stylist Jessica Mulroney, has issued a scathing social media post in which she takes down those who abandoned her in the wake of an influencer slamming her as racist earlier this year, the Mirror reports.
Meghan Markle’s pal Jessica Mulroney has posted a jibe at “a*******” who turned their back after she became embroiled in a “white privilege” row. The friends were rumoured to have fallen out following the spat, but Mulroney has since claimed this is not the case.
