US radio host Howard Stern has berated Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for their new Netflix documentaries. Harry and Megan.
The first three episodes of the couple’s series hit the platform last week and included revelations on everything from their first date to Princess Diana and racism in the UK.
“It was painful,” Stern said of the series on his eponymous radio show.
“Not me – I wouldn’t stick with it but my wife wants to watch it, so you know we have shows that we watch but they come off as such teary b****es. I gotta tell you man, I just don’t get it.”
He continued: “I get Prince Harry upset because of his mother in the monarchy. They treated her like shit… I feel bad about Prince Harry losing his mother and all. So you have my empathy there. But Jesus Christ, when these two start whining about “wah-wah-wah, and they don’t like me” and she wants to be loved in this country… it’s just really weird to see two people keep screaming, ” We wanted our privacy, we wanted the press to leave us alone.’ And then what is their special thing that they released on Netflix – to show them and their children and their lives. It’s like the Kardashians, only boring. You know what I mean?”
Stern continued to wonder what the couple hoped for from the series.
“Where are you going with that?” He asked. “Is this your career… talking about how humbled you’ve been to be a part of, I don’t know, living in a castle – and it’s hard to relate to that. It looks pretty awesome to me. When I was, I never had to worry about money and never had to worry about work.”
The host also predicted that the Prince would leave Markle one day, saying: “I think he won’t dig them up at some point. I’ll tell you.”
