Harry and Meghan's move to LA 'terrible mistake', hard for them to lecture people while living in luxury: Expert
Former Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter also said that 'being a soldier and liking football are just not saleable talents out there'
The former editor of Vanity Fair called Harry and Meghan's move to LA a "terrible mistake" as he feels that Prince Harry doesn't fit there.
The journalist, Graydon Carter, said that Harry would be crazy not to return to the UK. While doing an interview with The Telegraph, Carter said, "Los Angeles is not a place for people who don't have a part in the professional firmament."
"Meghan was on a middling TV show that a lot of people didn't see, and as for Harry: being a soldier and liking football are just not saleable talents out there. You can get it right if you stay on message in LA," Carter added. He revealed how it is hard for the couple to lecture people regarding the state of the planet when they're "flying in private planes, living in a 14-bedroom Beverly Hills mansion and living off the state."
He had also admitted how in 2017 when a member of his team had suggested trying to get Meghan for a cover story, he had no clue who she was. He said that the specific issue did not sell particularly well especially given that "it hadn't settled in people's minds yet that this woman was going to marry an English prince."
During the interview, he shared, "British people are clearly just saddened that this star, in their eyes - and I mean Harry, not Meghan - has left the country and gone his own way. It doesn't make sense to a lot of them." He also made a comparison between Harry and Meghan and Harry's brother Prince William and Kate Middleton who he says does "things almost to perfection." Carter had some advice to offer up to some of the other royals as well, specifically Prince Andrew whom he believes should "lock himself in a room and stay there and never say another word to anybody ever again" except if he is testifying in a New York courtroom.
We had earlier reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were very frustrated that William and Kate would receive all the best official roles and would feel "cut adrift", as stated in a new biography 'Finding Freedom'. The Times and Sunday Times obtained extracts from the book, which will be talking about Sussex's stepping down from The Firm. It has been revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were upset that they had to a 'backseat' to other family members like Prince William and Prince Charles who were often given priority, the Daily Mail reveals.
The biography also states that Harry and Meghan believe that they were forced out of the Royal Family given the senior members failed to protect them. The book speaks about Harry and Meghan's decision to keep the full family in the dark over their plans to quit royal duties and that the couple moving abroad had created a 'lot of ill will in the household and especially in the family'.
