Prince Harry not happy being a ‘C-list’ celeb in the US, wants wife Meghan to 'think big'
'It's hitting home hard that the old-school types aren't willing to let them into their circles,' a source said
MONTECITO, CALIFORNIA: Prince Harry is reportedly not happy with his current status in the US and wants Meghan Markle “to think big”, a source has claimed. The Sussexes left the UK in 2020 to begin a new, independent life on the other side of the pond. They got themselves a home in Montecito, California, so that they could live close to Hollywood and get some great works but apparently they are now in "C-list territory".
A source told radaronline.com: “Harry was so excited to move to California and assume he'd be dining at the top table with all the big players. In London, he only needed to click his fingers and people would line up to invite him to their upscale bashes. But that's just not happened for him and Meghan — and that's a real kick in the teeth.”

The source also went on to state that “it’s hitting home hard that the old-school types aren't willing to let them into their circles. So, hangouts with the likes of Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks aren't in the cards in the same way they've been blanked by Beyoncé and A-listers like Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, and Brad Pitt.”
It has also been said that the Duchess of Sussex's plan was to mark her name by interviewing big names for her 'Archetypes' podcast. However, it does not seem to go as planned as she faced a lot of backlash after saying she felt objectified while working for the game show ‘Deal or No Deal’. Instead of getting appreciation, a number of people called her out, including Whoopi Goldberg, who said, “OK. I just wanna say that on that show, you had a suitcase, and they wanted to know, is this the deal you want, or this is not the deal you want. I don't know that the people who are sitting there are thinking about you like that. They're thinking, 'I want the money.'”
“[Wheel of Fortune hostess] Vanna White is always in something interesting and beautiful, and she's been doing this. The objectification might be coming from you and how you felt about how these women were being portrayed, and that's what you have to change - because we're performers. When you're a performer, you take the gig,” Goldberg had added while slamming Meghan.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that to not further strain their relationship with the royal family, Harry and Meghan are trying hard to make their upcoming Netflix docuseries less harsh. They have also apparently begun to avoid their neighbors, like Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry, David Foster, and Katharine McPhee.
“Harry hates how they've gone from hobnobbing with the Obamas and the Clooneys to planning powwows with Baldwin and Hilton — and while he means no offense to these celebrities, it's just all getting a little desperate. The big A-listers are seeing the Sussexes as reality TV-type fodder now, and it's got Harry rattled and red-faced. He wants Meghan to think big — but of course, it's her way or the highway, so communication is awkward. Harry's learned the harsh truth — he made his bed and now has to lie in it,” the source added.
