In an opinion op-ed for the Daily Mail, Piers Morgan, a vocal critic of the couple, said that it was an “astonishing achievement” that they managed to find such a staggering sum of money if they thought that their “combined experience of producing anything in Hollywood could be written on the back of a postage stamp”.

Piers Morgan has questioned why Netflix Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had a multi-million-dollar deal when they saw their relative lack of experience in Hollywood and claimed their hypocrisy and elitism will show in everything they produce. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex who recently founded a yet-to-be-named production company, this week signed a multi-year deal with Netflix valued at around $150 million, under which they will be paid for film documentaries, docuseries, feature films, scripted shows and children & sports programming.
In an opinion op-ed for the Daily Mail, Piers Morgan, a vocal critic of the couple, said it was an “amazing achievement” that they managed to secure such a staggering sum of money if they considered their “combined experience of producing anything in Hollywood could be written on the back of a postage stamp ”
He said that their joint CV could be summarised with information about how “Meghan was a suitcase girl on Deal or No Deal and an actress on Suits, a Canadian television show” and how Harry demonstrates “real thespian promise with his hostage video performances during Lockdown.”
Morgan claimed that Netflix did not sign the couple for their experience and that they were hired because they are royal and titled and can “provide spectacular global media attention simply by blowing the wind in public. He said that the streaming company which has 193 million subscribers worldwide was based on “media attention generating enough new subscribers to justify the huge price tag”
The host of ‘Good Morning Britain’ went on to pick out Netflix co-CEO and chief content officer Ted Sarandos’ statement where he wrote that Harry and Meghan had “inspired millions of people all over the world with their authenticity, optimism and leadership” and said it was just ‘disingenuous sycophantic blunder’ ;
How could anyone feel inspired by Meghan and Harry’s ‘authenticity, optimism and leadership’ or’resilience’ given that they’ve spent the past two years screaming, ill-equipped, living off rich people and preaching about equality from their position of supreme elitism? Before adding that the couple’s statement was also ‘comically absurd’ Morgan argued.
Announcing the deal, Harry and Meghan had said that their lives had enabled them to understand the power of the human spirit: courage, resilience and the need for connection – something Morgan asked. “This is the same Meghan and Harry who run with indignity away from royal duty and distance themselves from everyone and everything in order to become shameless celebrity money grabpers – right? evt asked.
He also slammed them for claiming that they wanted to make ‘Inspirational Family programming’ by writing: “Two people who have so heartslessly and brutally deserted their own families are now going to be teaching us how to be good families?”
Morgan said the Netflix deal was “beyond parody” before she went to showcase a few of the “hyper-woke, self-serving productions” viewers could expect from the couple. These included shows such as ‘How to Have Your Royal Cake and Eat It’a poke at how they exploited their royal status’Around The World in 80 Private Jets ‘, which highlighted their hypocrisy in environmental matters’as well as ‘The Frown,”and more.
