KEY POINTS

  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are everywhere in the media these days
  • Mercy Muroki said it's the public that needs privacy and space from the royal couple now
  • Sophie Elsworth felt that the royal couple has continued to put themselves in the spotlight

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are exposing too much of themselves even though they have been asking for privacy, according to GB News presenters.

On Wednesday, Mercy Muroki weighed in on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's various projects. For her, they are everywhere in the media right now and this contradicts what they said when they asked for privacy after stepping down from their royal duties. According to her, she is not interested in what the royal couple has to say. However, she is "forced to listen to their opinions because they're literally inescapable."

"Meghan and Harry say they want some privacy in space, but I'm starting to feel like it's us who need a bit of privacy and space from them," she said. "You turn on your TV and there they are doing their interviews in front of millions of people. So, you flip to Netflix and there they are again with their multi-year, multi-million dollar deal. So you switch that off and think 'Well I'll just listen to a nice podcast instead' and there they are again being their weird and woke selves."

She added that if one decides to switch off completely and read a book, the couple is there again. Markle released her children's book "The Bench" a few months ago. Meanwhile, Prince Harry announced that he has been working on his tell-all memoir.

Muroki's co-anchor Patrick Christys commented on her statement saying there's some "strong stuff" there before agreeing that the royal couple is indeed inescapable because the two are "everywhere" despite their request for privacy.

"Yeah, they said they wanted privacy. But I think they're starting to invade Britain's privacy," she added.

Author Sophie Elsworth shared the same opinion when she was interviewed by Sky News Australia host Andrew Bolt. The host said it was a mystery for him that the royal couple said they fled from Britain for privacy but are coming back there with their own film crew to film his upcoming documentary "Heart of Invictus."

"Sophie, I'm a bit puzzled is their definition of privacy somehow different from mine?" Bolt asked the author, who also shared the same opinion on the issue.

"And mine Andrew, I mean, seriously, this woke, narcissistic privileged couple has done nothing but put themselves in the spotlight ever since they fled the U.K.," Elsworth said. "They've done podcasts, they've done books, they've done sit down sob stories with Oprah I mean it just goes on and on."

Although many complained about Prince Harry and Markle's exposure after they asked for privacy, some celebrity figures also defended them, including Oprah Winfrey. According to the media mogul, the royal couple asked for privacy from unwanted media attention. She added that she herself has also asked for privacy, but she's talking all the time.

"That's what people are missing. Privacy doesn't mean silence," Winfrey told Entertainment Tonight.
