Meghan and Harry ‘tried to outdo Kate Middleton’ in Spotify podcast | Royal | News


#Meghan #Markle and #Harry’s #Christmas card discussed by experts

The #Duke and #Duchess of #Sussex surprised their fans by releasing a festive podcast to round off 2020, welcoming a host of special guests including #Sir #Elton #John, #Tyler #Perry and #James #Corden. #And listeners of #Archewell #Audio were stunned when their son #Archie delivered his first public words, wishing everyone a #Happy #New #Year. The inclusion of #Archie, just 18 months old, appears to show the #Sussexes trying to outdo their sister-in-law #Kate, #Duchess of #Cambridge, who herself made #Royal #Family history this year by becoming the first member of the monarchy to appear on a podcast.

#She joined #Giovanna #Fletcher, this year’s I’m A #Celebrity #Get #Me #Out of #Here! winner, on the #Happy #Mum, #Happy #Baby broadcast, which saw the future #Queen consort detailing the challenges experienced during motherhood.

#Her moving reflections and open honesty, earned her acclaim, as previously it was rare for such a high-standing figure within the #Royal #Family to speak in such detail.

#But months later, #Meghan and #Harry announced they had gone one step further than #Kate, and signed a reported £30million ($40million) deal to create podcasts for #Spotify.

#In the first episode, the couple went another step further than #Kate dared to by including their child in the broadcast.

The couple’s #Spotify deal came amid reports of a row between the #Sussexes and #Cambridges, with the former opting to quit senior royal life this year to lead a financially independent life, while aiming to keep #Archie out of the spotlight.

#Reports suggest that #Harry and #William fell out after the #Duke of #Cambridge was critical of #Meghan, with the #Duke of #Sussex claiming he spoke “snobbishly” about his then-girlfriend at some point between 2016 and 2017.

#Tensions came to a head last year, after #Harry spoke about how he and his brother were “on different paths” during an emotional tour of #South #Africa.

#Archie’s appearance drew criticism and praise, with some arguing that the #Sussexes had employed “double standards” by letting their young son speak on the show.

#Many #Harry and #Meghan supporters have been critical of the #Cambridges, alleging they would use their children for PR purposes, including earlier this year when #Kensington #Palace released a video of #Prince #George, #Princess #Charlotte and #Prince #Louis all speaking on camera to naturalist #Sir #David #Attenborough.

#One #Sussex critic wrote: “#So interesting, though, because #Meghan #Markle fans always say that the #Cambridges use their kids for PR. #But putting #Archie on a podcast is ok?”

#Karleigh #Smith, who described herself as a #Hollywood news and entertainment editor, also claimed that the podcast showed the major differences between the #Cambridges and #Sussexes.

#She said that after listening to the podcast, “it finally dawned on me” why the #Sussexes were “getting it so wrong compared to #Kate and #William” during a difficult 2020.

The commentator wrote: “The #Cambridges speak TO people, whether it’s playing bingo with oldies on #Zoom or visiting frontline workers during a train journey through the heart of the UK.

“The #Sussexes speak AT people through CNN, #Time, or via their celebrity friends on #Spotify, lecturing the suffering public from their house on the hill and offering ‘cheers’ and platitudes.”

A third added: “#For two people who wanted privacy, I find it strange if they are now parading #Archie too.

“#Perhaps their idea of privacy is different from mine!”

#Despite the negativity, others praised the couple for trying to offer “hope” in a year that has seen the world ravaged by coronavirus.

#One #Meghan fan concluded: “#William and #Kate are senior royals that’s literally their job… which they aren’t quite good at meanwhile #Meghan and #Harry who are non-working royals do it because they care.”

#Royal #Family fans have been unable to see #Archie as he has not been in the UK since #November 2019, when he left to go to #Canada with his parents.

#While #Harry and #Meghan returned to the UK to hash out their exit from the #Firm, the child stayed in #North #America with friends of the couple.

#It is hoped the trio could be back next year to mark #Prince #Philip’s 100th birthday on #June 10.
