YouTubers Josh Pieters (pictured right) and Archie Manners (pictured left) have revealed the biases of ‘Royal Experts’ against Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
Pieters is perhaps best known for getting Katie Hopkins to accept a ‘C-U-N-T’ award.
In a YouTube video, Pieters and Manners posed as a production company and interviewed Royal Experts about Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey – before the interview aired.
The concept behind the video was to see if these ‘experts’ would give their opinion on a video they hadn’t seen, and brought them on to a fake TV show.
They interviewed royal commentators Richard Fitzwilliams and Victoria Arbiter, Ingrid Seward, Majesty magazine Editor-in-Chief and Dicki Arbiter, the Queen’s former secretary.
Seward’s reflections on the interview that she hadn’t seen include that it was “an actress giving one of her great performances. From start to finish, Meghan was acting.”
Fitzwilliam critiqued the interview, which he also hadn’t seen, as “not balanced”, arguing that “Oprah is a friend and gave them an esay ride…she was totally sympathetic and there is a great deal in it that the palace will find deeply concerning.”
His final point may be apt, as Meghan and Harry focused on a series of incidents that made them feel unwelcome in the palace, including that Meghan was suicidal and denied medical support by palace officials.
The YouTubers also asked the commentators about Meghan’s “comments about Prince William”.
In the actual interview, Meghan did not specifically refer to any members of the Royal family personally, other than to say that the Queen “has always been wonderful to me”.
She also said that Kate, Duchess of Cornwall, made her cry before her wedding, but she later apologused and gave her flowers.
Prince Harry, in contrast, was more revealing, stating that his father Prince Charles has “stopped taking my calls”, and that while he loved his brother William “to bits”, they were on different paths and the relationship was at “space at the moment.”
Commenting on the unaired interview, Seward said that Meghan, “making comments about the Royal Family didn’t surprise me at all. I think she was very unwise to do it, but she’s the kind of woman who wants her say.”
Fitzwilliam said that “there was no need to go into so much detail as to why they were so unhappy as members of the royal family.”
Oprah Winfrey’s interview with the Royals was watched by more than a million Australians when it aired on Monday night.
