Meghan Markle and Harry dubbed 'selfish' by experts after interview: 'It was a performance till the very end'
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey, which all but 'besmirched' the good name of the royal family, has not been taken kindly by some of the royal experts. From slamming Harry and Meghan as 'selfish', 'self-indulgent', and 'outrageous' among other things, these experts wasted no time in coming to the queen's aid even as social media has seen some overwhelming support flow in Meghan's direction.
Voicing his opinion on the topic was royal expert Robert Jobson, who told The Daily Mail, the interview "was a performance till the very end." Jobson, co-author of the 2002 book 'the 2002 book Diana: Closely Guarded Secret' also labeled Harry and Meghan as 'selfish' in his comment. "They have both made some very serious allegations and know the monarchy can't fight back. The entire interview did not respect the Queen. They have attacked the institution of the monarchy. It is not showbiz. This is a gross insult to the British people," he said.

"The only winner here is Oprah Winfrey," he added. This was seconded by another journalist Russell Myers. "When the Queen wakes up and reads what has been said she will be absolutely devastated," Myers said. "They have slammed almost every single member of the royal family. They have said duty does not mean anything and that they were not able to leave and if they had the option to leave, they would. The Queen has been devoted to service. It is just outrageous."
Entertainment journalist KJ Matthews also sided with the royal family. "I haven’t seen one sympathetic viewpoint siding with the royal family," she opined. "I'm hearing now Oprah will appear live on the CBS Morning Show to reveal and show clips of the interview that we have not seen, so there's even more. There could be more bombshells that we see. It's just the gift that keeps on giving, and it's quite shocking. So I will be surprised to see what else she can drop on us."
The startling reveals also saw Markle talk about how their son Archie's birth impacted the young family. The 'Suits' star told Oprah that "the firm" (They labeled the royal family that) did not want to provide their son with a title or protection because he is part African-American. Meghan's mother Doria Ragland is of African-American descent.
Royal biographer Angela Levin felt Meghan had probably taken things too far. "Meghan made it sound as if she was in prison. That was her narrative. She said there was no one there for her, but Harry was by her side. One of the Queen's most trusted assistants was given to her. It is hard to say there was no one."
