Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘not royals to Americans’ as expert offers advice

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are “not really royals to Amercians” with a top US celebrity blogger and columnist comparing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to hit reality TV family, the Kardashians.

The former working royals were humiliated earlier this week after being brutally mocked during an episode of the popular cartoon satire, Family Guy.

This came just eight months after Harry and Meghan were also embarrassingly taken apart during an episode of South Park.

Royal Family commentator Kinsey Schofield responded by saying the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “have become a parody in the US” following the most brutal takedown.

Now top celebrity blogger and columnist Perez Hilton has said Harry and Meghan are no longer regarded as royals in America, comparing them to the Kardashians as they are “famous because of their names, but they haven’t really done much of note yet.”

He told GB News: “They (Harry and Meghan) are big celebrities here, but that’s the thing they are – they are not royals to us.

“They need to cultivate their celebrity so I think the best response for them is to say nothing and obviously don’t be upset.

“Meghan was talking recently about how she was concerned about her children on social media.

“In a way, the Sussexes are kind of like the Kardashians here – they are famous because of their names, but they haven’t really done much of note yet.

“They need to play the fame game because at the end of the day, it is all about money – the more famous they are, the more money they can make.”

The latest episode of Family Guy, which aired on Sunday, poked fun at Harry and Meghan’s multi-million-pound deal with Netflix they signed after quitting their roles as working members of the Royal Family and relocating to the US in early 2020.

It also implied that influencing is one of the few ways the couple can now make money.

Earlier this year, an episode of South Park took a swipe at the couple’s quest for privacy and mocked them for demanding that privacy yet simultaneously seeking out press attention.

In response, Royal Family commentator Kinsey Schofield branded the Family Guy takedown as “Meghan Markle’s worst nightmare”.

She warned if Harry and Meghan want to forge successful careers in the US, “they have to shake the idea of being a parody, adding doing so is “crucial to their brand”.
