After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry chose to step away from their roles as acting members of the royal family, the couple has been under heavy scrutiny for nearly every action they’ve taken post-Megxit.

From their decisions to partner with corporations such as Netflix and Spotify for flashy media deals to the actions they’ve taken in addressing political matters such as the U.S. Presidential Election, the pair always seem to be in hot water for one reason or another.

While there have indeed been some missteps for the couple, which was always expected as they entered uncharted waters, the overall perception from royal insiders has been that the pair simply had different hopes for their lives — aspirations that have apparently left them “desperate to stay in the spotlight.”

In a new interview with The Express, CEO of Republic, Graham Smith shared his insights on the couple and the decisions they’ve made in the months following their departure from royal life. During the conversation, Smith alleged that Meghan and Harry want nothing more than to find new ways to keep people interested in and talking about them.

“I think Meghan and Harry are very clearly desperate to stay in the spotlight,” Smith claimed, adding that “The problem is that their only claim to fame is having been royals.”

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry more interested in being celebrities than royals

While Megxit shocked the world, Smith seems to think the writing was on the wall from the start in that the couple was more concerned with being celebrities than serving as legitimate figureheads within the royal family.

“It is very clear that they wanted to be celebrities and they wanted to do it on their own terms. They wanted the life of a carefully managed celebrity rather than a royal who is, even in a less than ideal way, open to scrutiny and challenge,” he alleged.

Whether it’s a fair assessment is up for debate, as there are definitely arguments in support and against the claim.

Do you think Graham Smith’s assessment of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is a fair assessment when looking at the couple’s actions from the past year? Or do you think Smith is yet another overly harsh critic making a mountain out of a molehill?
