'It would be a shame in ANY FAMILY': TV host slams 'sad' Meghan Markle for airing Royals' 'dirty laundry'
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Australian television and radio presenter Kerri-Anne Kennerley has targeted Meghan Markle several times for criticizing the royals in interviews since she stepped down as a royal member. Prince Harry and Meghan have riled up the royal family with a series of 'truth bombs' showing the royal family as indifferent and even racist at the time Meghan was pregnant with her first baby. The most visible of these criticisms was their interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired in March, 2022.
Kennerley believes that it is "very sad" that Meghan has chosen to wash her "dirty laundry in public".
Kennerley told Daily Mail Australia that she is against this path chosen by Meghan and Harry. She said these were personal matters of the family which are not supposed to be said out loud.

Kennerley told the Daily Mail Australia, "I think it’s very, very sad that [Meghan] washes dirty laundry in public, I … I would never do that to my family. Meghan seems to think the world should know all the ins and outs and very personal things that are said within family walls. Whether you’re a royal or not, it’s deeply personal things in a family.”
Kennerley also pointed out that the interviews were done for money, although Meghan and Harry have said that they were not paid for their interview with Oprah.
“You shouldn’t go chattering, unless it’s within your own four walls," Kennerley said, adding, “I don’t care how much money she makes. It would be a shame in any family.”
Kennerly stated that the royals are raised in different circumstances than ordinary people, and it would have been better if Meghan had tried to be more understanding than talking ill about them.
“It’s very hard to judge until you’ve been in their shoes for a while.They were raised differently and that’s just the way it is. You cannot rewrite history. I am determined not to rewrite history. You can observe and learn, appreciate and decide that this should never happen again. Or say, I don’t agree with why people think it’s okay to talk in public about deeply personal family issues. But that’s me personally," she said.
"It’s actually quite simple. Don’t talk about your family!" she added.
Kennerley then went on to comment on Meghan’s claim that an unnamed member of the royal family made a “racist” comment about her son Archie, when she was pregnant with him, putting the royal family in an uncomfortable position.
“The suggestion of racism, to Oprah, about her baby’s skin color — you have to be very careful with those kinds of comments,” Kennerley said. “It’s like, ‘Whose eye color are they going to get?' or 'what their skin color is'… It’s not more racist than that. And Meghan made such a big deal of it,” she said.
