Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has faced mocking and have been ridiculed. Pundit Megyn Kelly noted on her podcast this week, “When South Park turns on you, there’s no recovering.”
Megyn Kelly talks about them
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were ridiculed in the show’s latest episode, “The Worldwide Privacy Tour.”
“I feel this is a pronouncement that they have jumped the shark, they are not beloved and her hopes of running for president, reported hopes, are all but dashed,” Kelly, 52, said on “The Megyn Kelly Show,” released Friday.
“That’s not happening. When South Park turns on you, there’s no recovering.”
In the episode, the couple – who are not identified as Harry and Meghan, but clearly are — move to the US seeking privacy. One of their ways to achieve that are to appear on television to promote the book “Waaagh,” which boasts a cover remarkably similar to Harry’s memoir, “Spare.”
“We just want to be normal people — all this attention is so hard,” the prince says in the episode after admitting he “hates” journalists. They are called out, and march off in a huff with their “We Want Our Privacy” signs.
Prince Harry has been ever-obsessed with Meghan Markle. The Duke of Sussex opened up about his relationship with his wife in his memoir, Spare, published January. 10. Part 3 of the book begins with the story of how he first connected with Meghan, after seeing her photo while scrolling on Instagram in 2016.
Meghan and a mutual friend named Violet made a silly video with a Snapchat dog face filter, and Prince Harry wrote that he’d “never seen anyone so beautiful” when her face popped up on his feed. Harry asked Violet to make an introduction, and she shared Harry’s secret Instagram account with the Suits star. Meghan messaged him first, and they immediately connected over a shared love of Africa, as Harry’s page was filled with photos from the country (a revelation the Duke and Duchess of Sussex first made in Harry & Meghan on Netflix).
