Meghan Markle recently introduced American Riviera Orchard, unveiling it through a video on Instagram, revealing her culinary skills in a charming kitchen adorned with delicate white and pink flowers. The brand’s scope encompasses various products, including jams, which will complement Meghan’s upcoming cookery show for Netflix.

Under the American Riviera Orchard trademark, a diverse range of goods, from cutlery to recipe books, is offered. However, Megyn Kelly, a noted US host and commentator, vehemently condemns Meghan’s venture. This is reported by The Express.

Speaking on Sky News Australia’s Paul Murray Live show, Kelly expressed skepticism, stating, “This new lifestyle brand. You bake? I don’t believe any of that. I don’t get it and I don’t think people are going to be attracted to her ‘brand’. It’s all because it’s fake”.

She criticized the “authenticity” of the Duchess of Sussex’s endeavors, drawing a comparison to Martha Stewart’s genuine culinary expertise. Kelly questioned Meghan’s qualifications for such pursuits, labeling the entire endeavor as fraudulent.

A little earlier, a brand promising to reflect Meghan’s love for family cooking, entertainment, and home decor has already sparked criticism from royal expert Tom Bower.

The expert believes that the entire brand is blatant speculation on her royal status, despite Harry and Meghan previously promising the late Queen that they would not commercialize their royal titles.

Using her royal status in advertising materials only heightened these concerns and appears to be a strategy for financial security when their current streams of income from Netflix and Spotify are exhausted.
