Writer Joanna Weiss said that the public is tired of Meghan Markle’s dramas. She compared the Duchess of Sussex to Donald Trump, Kanye West, Elon Musk, Elizabeth Holmes, and Sam Bankman-Fried. “2022 is the year when we are all finally tired of ‘narcissists’. Some of them have received their retribution, and some of them have become even worse,” Joanna said.
According to the author, the disgraced Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attracted the public, but the film turned against her not only the Britons but also Hollywood. The result was the “disinterest” of people, Politico reports.
“My natural sympathy for this couple began to turn into irritation, and it occurred to me that the ego has its limits. It struck me that the excessive tension that led to criticism of the series is the same impulse that led to outrageous behavior and blatant anti—Semitism in order to raise the stakes,” the writer was indignant.
Weiss admitted that Meghan Markle’s narcissism is more “mild” than that of Elon Musk or Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband, but if it reaches the highest level, it can become dangerous. Joanna admits that the royal couple has legitimate claims to the monarchy, but their statements sound the same claims and demands. “Even sympathetic critics have acknowledged that there is little new here except vanity,” the author added.
Meghan & Harry, directed by Liz Garbus is the first project to appear under a multi—year contract that the Dukes of Sussex signed with the streaming giant back in 2020 after they moved from the UK to the US, the Daily Mail reports.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are preparing to release a documentary about inspiring leaders such as Nelson Mandela, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and feminist Gloria Steinem. The Dukes of Sussex acted as executive producers, but they also ranked themselves among the leaders, appearing in the film with their own reflections on eternal values.
