Top 5 Brutal TV Moments Meghan Markle Was Name-Dropped

When Trevor Noah brought up Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, on TV in January 2020, it was undeniably harsh. Even so, unlike other criticisms, it wasn’t Meghan who looked the worst. “The British royal family, they’re like the Kardashians with an occasional beheading,” Noah began. He elaborated on Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan’s decision to step back from royal duties, showing a clip of Queen Elizabeth II arriving at Sandringham for crisis talks about “Megxit” with Harry, his brother Prince William, their father King Charles III, and Meghan joining via phone from Canada.

Noah pondered what prompted Harry and Meghan to leave the U.K. and then offered a searing narrative. He condemned the British press, highlighting a Daily Mail headline from November 2016, “Harry’s girl is (almost) straight outta Compton,” a BBC correspondent’s offensive social media post depicting the couple’s baby as a chimpanzee, and Princess Michael of Kent’s openly racist jewelry choice.

In March 2021, Harry and Meghan sat down with Oprah to discuss the racism they faced, which influenced their decision to leave. Harry mentioned that an unnamed royal questioned the potential color of their baby. “He did not share the identity with me,” Oprah said on “CBS This Morning” the day after the interview aired. However, she explained, Harry asserted it “was not his grandmother, nor his grandfather that were a part of those conversations.” Christopher Anderson’s book “Brothers and Wives” later claimed that the alleged commenter was Charles.
