Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been lashing out at the media during their interviews and even in their Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan. The couple has been crying foul over how the British press hounded them and wrote stories filled with racial slurs in reference to the Duchess of Sussex.
At one point, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry also sued British publications for releasing a copy of the former's handwritten letter to her dad, Thomas Markle Sr. According to the Duchess of Sussex, she wrote a letter to her dad whilst following the advice of the senior royals.
Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Want To Profit From The British Press?
Now, royal author Tom Bower, who has been attacking Prince Harry and Markle in recent months, weighed in on the couple's plight against the British press. He said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are slamming the media simply because they are not profiting from their reports.
"They keep complaining about media intrusion and yet keep opening themselves up to it. They always blame the media, but the media they are blaming is the same media they went and seduced with the likes of Oprah and magazines, and now Netflix. I think it's for money. The whole point is they think they should be paid by the media for reporting on them. They want money for interviews and for appearances. Meghan wants to profit from being a celebrity, like how she was brought up. She could never understand how royal 'celebs' were not paid. They feel they should be profiting from their royal celebrity status. Previously, they were not paid," he told The Sun.
Royal Author Tom Bower Criticized Meghan Markle And Prince Harry?
This is not the first time that Bower criticized the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. But most recently, he seems to be attacking Markle more than her husband.
During his interview on Good Morning Britain, Bower stood firm by the things that he wrote in his book Revenge: Meghan, Harry, and the War Between the Windsors.
"Overall, I came across with the impression of a woman who is very intelligent, very determined, very ambitious, but also ruthless - and in the end, in her terms' successful.' The reader will have to make up their minds about whether she's good or bad. There were two agents who told horrible stories about her bullying and her oppression, and that was an eye opener… Meghan has got the ability to make people feel fearful, the truth is what I wrote was exactly what he told me, and was a horrendous story, he was absolutely appalled by the nature of Meghan. When he saw it in black and white he was fearful for his own profession," he said (via Mirror UK).
