But British television personality Piers Morgan quickly dismantled this suggestion and gave Markle an unpleasant new nickname. “It’s not your ambition we dislike, Princess Pinocchio – it’s the vile way you trash the Royal Family whilst simultaneously exploiting your royal status for millions of dollars as with this podcast,” Morgan tweeted.
Meghan Markle on her podcast #Archetypes: ‘I don’t ever remember personally feeling the negative connotation behind the word ambitious, until I started dating my now-husband. And apparently, ambition is a terrible terrible thing, for women that is, according to some.’ Ouch…— Claudia Aoraha (@claudiaaoraha) August 23, 2022
In addition to criticisms about the podcast lacking entertainment value, some critics even questioned some of the facts Markle presented. In particular, a story she told about a fire in her son Archie’s room was called into question. According to the Daily Mail, Markle said on the podcast that a fire once broke out in the room where Archie was supposed to be sleeping. Even though Archie was not in the room at the time, Markle told Williams she was “in tears” after the incident, but she was forced to continue with her royal engagements. The Mail reported that others recalled the incident, but they did not remember seeing an actual fire. Instead, witnesses saw smoke coming from a heater, which was subsequently unplugged. In addition, royal expert Angela Levin said Markle should not have been surprised that she had to continue with public engagements, especially since Archie was never actually in danger. “Meghan was outraged that she had to go on another royal engagement in South Africa after she heard there was a fire in baby Archie’s room,” Levin wrote, according to the Mail. “Nasty to hear but as an actress doesn’t she know the show must go on[?] Luckily he wasn’t there but odd it was never leaked to the press.” By most accounts, the first episode of Markle’s podcast was a disaster. The narcissism she has become known for is likely to weigh down any future episodes. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
