KEY POINTS

  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry don't think broadly when making decisions
  • The Duchess of Sussex allegedly has this desire to be always on top
  • The royal couple just hired new people to be part of their PR team

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry lack common sense for royal biographer Angela Levin.

Levin, author of "Harry: Conversations with the Prince," recently spoke about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on TalkRadio. She made an assessment on the couple after reports that they hired new members for their PR team surfaced. Levin said that Prince Harry and Markle realized something was wrong because their approval rating dropped.

“They are going down with all the, 'do you like Harry and Meghan?'" Levin said.

“But I think it is because they lack common sense,” she continued. 

“They lost it because they don't think broadly. They don't think ‘Will someone be hurt if I got to do this before I tell other people what to do?’I don't think they like that, so they have 15 people who are trying to get them on every channel around the world. But if you haven't got common sense, you're not going to do the right things in the right way.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex just hired Christine Schirmer, the former head of communications at Pinterest. They also hired another one from Deluxe, a video creator and distribution company. Levin just smiled when the host mentioned the expertise of the new members of the Sussexes' PR team.

"Yes, but I just say, you could have learned from people telling you what to do, but if you haven't got a gut instinct you're at a huge disadvantage and I think that's a problem."

Aside from that, Levin also mentioned some attributes of the duchess that would possibly make it more difficult for them moving forward. Levin was referring to Markle's competitive side and her alleged desire to be always on top.

"And I also think Meghan is based on one-upmanship and winning and jealousy of other people having something and she has to triumph over that," she continued.

"She has got many talents, she is a very bright woman and she speaks well. But she has got a wish for being the number one in every possible area. And she messes up because she doesn't understand the rest of us and what we think."

Levin recognized the people that still support the duchess. However, she thinks that they are getting “smaller and smaller and younger and younger.”

Just recently, Levin called Markle "foolish and arrogant" after reports that she admitted to sharing her personal information with someone to be passed on to the "Finding Freedom" authors. Several netizens agreed with her because the Sussexes already denied any contribution or involvement in making the book in the past months.
