- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry love only pontificating about the evils of the media.
- The new biography by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand unlocks Harry and Meghan for the hypocrites they are.
- They do not hate the media — only negative coverage.
Regardless of what you consider the virtues of”Finding Freedom” — that the biography on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry — something has been curious about the publication’s upcoming launch.
There has been a distinct absence of whining from both of those Hollywood Royals about authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand prying into their private lives.
Why aren’t Meghan Markle & Prince Harry outraged about’Finding Freedom?’
Their silence is all the more notable because HarperCollins is publishing the book.
That’s right: the Very Same HarperCollins worked by Rupert Murdoch, the media tycoon who possesses News Corp.
News Corp, you will remember, is that the”evil” media empire allegedly accountable for much of this”invasive” tabloid coverage that has Prince Harry and Meghan Markle so incensed.
Why can they sit back quietly while their friends and associates talk anonymously to writers working under the News Corp umbrella?
The answer to that question is simple. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are just upset about media policy when it is not positive. And this coverage is largely free.
No need for lawyers when the anonymous source is at Meghan Markle’s corner
The whole situation drips with hypocrisy.
Meghan Markle seemingly had zero problems with”a friend” spilling the particulars of an intensely intimate conversation to the writers of”Finding Freedom.”
Not quite the actions of a girl who apparently wants the press to back off from using anonymous sources and quoting so-called buddies in their articles.
Of course, this anonymous origin pained Meghan at a favorable light, therefore we should not anticipate Prince Harry to begin moaning about how the media won’t stick out of their personal lives.
No requirement for the attorneys in this case , right?
Isn’t’Finding Freedom’ that the type of media coverage Prince Harry claims to hate?
I don’t understand Omid Scobie. While he can, and I really don’t blame him for leaping this gravy train.
What I do understand is that Scobie is just the type of journalist Prince Harry and Meghan Markle claim to loathe.
Unless I’m confused, the journalist turned self-styled royal biographer participates with the most rumors and”invasive” reporting that sends Harry to a fit of rage.
That is part of the job description.
What provides, Harry? Why are not you preaching about the evils of a publication written by authors that are speaking to unnamed”friends” and”insiders” — all to cash in on your profile and reputation?
Since it serves your goal, that’s why. That makes both you and Meghan Markle nothing more than hypocrites!
What a contrast to the Illustration of Queen Elizabeth
Setting aside all the faux anger the few urgently feigns to keep themselves on the ideal side of relevant, what we’ve seen from”Finding Freedom” thus much has been a tad underwhelming.
For many its efforts to warrant Megxit, it’s confirmed what we always imagined: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are selfish, whiny snowflakes.
Harry can do with taking a leaf out of the real life biography of his grandmother and grandfather. They’ve accrued a life of support unsullied by pointless battles with the tabloids.
Do not rely on fawning media coverage to inform us what you are worth. Stand up and establish it the old fashioned way.
