A royal expert is speaking out this week to say that Americans are starting to turn on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry after their explosive tell-all interviews bashing the royal family.
“The American public is sort of unaware of what monarchy is all about and is easily taken in by a young, attractive and glamorous couple,” royal expert Lee Cohen told The Express. “Which is certainly what the Sussexes are. Certainly they resonate with younger people not only in the USA but also in Britain. Where opinion polls show higher popularity among a younger demographic.”
Polls have indeed shown that younger people are more likely to be fans of Meghan and Harry.
“But many in the US were unable to actually apply the necessary scepticism to see all of the inconsistencies in the Oprah interview,” he said. “And they will no doubt enthusiastically support Harry’s public therapy sessions in the new Apple Plus series. But on our side of the pond, as Brits often note, therapy seems to be the answer to every question.”
Objective reporting for the educated American.
However, Cohen went on to warn Meghan and Harry that Americans are starting to turn on them.
“But, let’s not make any mistakes, there is a significant segment of the US population who cringe at airing your dirty laundry in public,” he said. “And in making these kinds of new age statements to the public.”
Cohen previously said that he doesn’t think Americans care about Harry and Meghan’s royal titles anymore.
“[America] already recognizes Meghan as the American princess and she always will be, notwithstanding if her title is taken away,” he explained. “Even if those titles are someday removed, in America, they don’t hold any official status anyway. Their only value is promotional and, deserved or not, that has already been achieved.”
Meghan and Harry moved to the United States last year after stepping down as senior royals, and they have since settled in the ritzy area of Montecito, California. There, they have signed lucrative multi-million dollar deals to create content for Netflix and Spotify.
Harry has also been hired by the mental health coaching company BetterUp as a chief impact officer, expected to earn him many more millions of dollars.
