Meghan Markle fury: US media bitterly turns on ‘freeloading’ Sussexes after bank speech

MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry have recently begun their new life in Canada to escape the British tabloid press, but now it seems the American media has decided to turn on the Royal couple.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently settling into their new life in Canada with their son Archie Harrison. Their desire was to have a more private and normal life for their nine-month-old.

However, the US media has begun to turn bitterly on the couple, according to MailOnline.

The couple wished to promote environmentalism when they escaped the British press.

But journalist Maureen Callahan, who writes for the New York Post, is just one of many who has decided to turn on the pair.

She wrote a scathing rebuttal after Prince Harry spoke at a summit for JP Morgan Chase.

She slammed the couple as being freeloaders who were cashing in on their royal identity.

The journalist also criticised the couple for not living up to their environmental pledges.

She wrote: “Just weeks after slamming the door on Buckingham Palace, declaring their suffering as wealthy, pampered, world-famous senior royals so unbearable that they must take their leave and flee to the Canadian woods in search of privacy, humility, a slower way of life, time to think about which noble eco-warrior causes to support (while flying private, of course) and to create normalcy for themselves and their baby, Harry and Meghan are out on the stroll, selling their goods and services — whatever those may be — to the highest bidder.

“You'd think, for appearances' sake, they would have held out a little longer. It's not as if they're suddenly destitute.

“Harry and Meghan are, after all, still on the royal payroll through at least May, after which Prince Charles has vowed to support them.

“And since decamping Britain, they've been freeloading, staying indefinitely at a $14 million (£10,724,490) Vancouver mansion (a deal brokered by music producer David Foster) and at Serena Williams' Palm Beach estate during a recent trip to Florida.”

She then commented on the irony of Prince Harry being allegedly paid to speak about his mother’s death.

Last year, the Duke complained about the negative press coverage that plagued his mother’s life, and how it had a lasting impact on him.

He said in his speech: “Every single time I hear a click, every single time I see a flash. It takes me straight back.”

Ms Callahan said: “But for the right price, he'll dredge up all that deeply personal emotional chaos, held sacred for decades, to a room full of global powerbrokers — despite zero chance any of it will elucidate or ameliorate a single real-world problem.

“To cap off this inaugural foray into life as working commoners, Harry and Meghan reportedly had dinner with two of the most philanthropic and publicity-shy people on the planet, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez.

“Now they're reportedly house-hunting in LA and New York City — exactly where celebrities seeking seclusion go — and have been in talks with Goldman Sachs since at least November, months before announcing their plans to 'step back.’”

Aubrey Hansen at CNN also turned on the couple and said they shamelessly flaunted their ambitions.

She said: “If Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had decided to step further into the background, performing their royal duties on a less intensive basis and spending more time in private, I doubt there would have been much criticism,” she writes.

“That's not what they did, though.

“They quietly made plans to live in Los Angeles.

“Then Harry loudly announced their arrival on the private circuit by telling wealthy bankers all about his mother's death (for a hefty fee, of course).”
