Harry and Meghan have yet to publicly speak about last week’s episode of South Park, presumably because they don’t have the staff left to formulate a press release. But California sources claim that Meghan has spent the last few days “upset and overwhelmed” about how she was portrayed.
If you’ve read anything about Harry and Meghan over the last three years, you’d think the pair would be delighted with how South Park parodied them. The entire episode, titled “The Worldwide Privacy Tour,” gives them enough fodder to moan for a few more books… or Netflix documentaries… or Spotify podcasts. Meghan can cry about how she is a victim of misogyny and Harry can claim that this was all a narrative concocted by the big, bad press.
In fairness, South Park didn’t hold back. Meghan is described as a “sorority girl, actress, influencer, victim,” by a brand manager during the episode. Later on, Harry has an awakening, realizing that their obsession with branding has made them “turn ourselves into products.” He claims that there will be, “no more magazines and Netflix shows, we can just live a normal life.” However, when he leaves, Meghan decides to stay — so the prince exits alone.
Ironically, after the episode aired, rumors began circulating that Harry and Meghan were so frustrated with the show that they are now “taking it out on each other.” At least their spousal disagreements are taking place in a nine-bedroom-sixteen-bathroom mansion. No awkward passings in the hallway for them.
Sources claim that Meghan, “is annoyed by South Park but refuses to watch it all.” But for Meghan, this couldn’t have come at a worse time. The duchess is said to be “obsessed with her half-sister’s litigation.” Meghan’s half-sister Samantha Markle is suing her for defamation following their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey. The duchess had previously filed a motion to stop depositions in the case from taking place, but it was dismissed by Florida judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell earlier this month.
Then there’s a coronation. Meghan and Harry are supposedly “weighing up” whether they will attend or not, but according to sources close to her the duchess “feels excluded,” from the whole thing. Probably better to leave it then.
Aside from all of this, the pair have been made aware that nosey journalists, ahem, have been “poking around Archewell and asking serious questions about what they actually contribute.” This comes after the couple released a report tooting their own horn.
Sources claim that the friction between the couple stemmed from the negative reaction after Harry’s memoir, Spare. The BBC published a review that called the duke’s memoir, “the longest angry drunk text ever sent.” James Marriott from the Times of London called it a “400-page therapy session for mystic Harry.” However much money it provided the couple, it wasn’t enough for Meghan, who is said to be “embarrassed by the whole thing and seeking support from mentors.” Trouble in paradise?
