Meghan Markle news: Prince Harry & Meg slammed for dropping 'truth bomb' podcast on 25th anniversary of Lady Di death | The Sun

AN Australian commentator has slammed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for dropping a "truth bomb" podcast on the anniversary of Diana's death.

Speaking on The Morning Show, Peter Ford condemned Meghan Markle's decision to release the second episode of her podcast, Archetypes, on the 25th anniversary of Lady Diana Spencer's death.

"This anniversary wasn't exactly a surprise; we knew it was coming," the journalist pointed out.

"So why would you schedule that interview for yesterday? Why not put the podcast off for a week. You know, get out of the news cycle."

Ford later took to Twitter to continue his rant, stating: "On the actual 25th anniversary of Princess Diana's death, guess who inserts herself into the news cycle?

"[She could have done] a podcast that drops today that talks about Diana's legacy and causes she supported. Would actually get massive coverage had she done it.

"Or alternately she has the sway to tell Spotify to not release it for 24 hours. Surely this must cross Prince Harry's mind?"

The second episode of Meghan's bombshell podcast saw the Duchess interview pop icon Mariah Carey.

    Diana dreamed of LA, friend claims

    A close friend of the late Princess Diana has claimed she dreamed of moving to the United States prior to her death.

    Stewart Pearce, who was Diana’s close friend and voice coach, spoke exclusively to the Sun ahead of the 25th anniversary of her death.

    “Diana was also very fascinated by the nature of some of the conversations with creative moguls in Los Angeles and the USA,” Pearce said.

    “She wanted to really move into use of film and video, because video was becoming extraordinarily successful in terms of broadcasting projects and the significant seas around the ethos around the ways we move forward.”

    “She was having fun for the first time in her life, she had matured into a level of sensuality and sexuality that all women can relate to where they feel held, trusted, considered intelligent, and there is faith in their opinions and creativities. 

    “In other words, Diana felt 99.9 percent supported by Dodi.”

    “She was really charged with a level of verve, brio, vitality and dynamic force she was excited by as one often is when one has gone through finishing a major relationship that needs to come to a close,” Pearce told The Sun.

    Meghan googled Prince Harry before their first date

    Early in Meghan's relationship with Prince Harry, she claimed that she had no prior knowledge about the Royal Family, but according to royal authors, she did extensive research before first meeting her husband.

    She said: “It’s so interesting because we talk about it and now and even then, I, you know, because I’m from the States, you don’t grow up with the same understanding of the Royal Family and so while I now understand very clearly, there’s a global interest there. 

    “I didn’t know much about him, and so the only thing that I had asked her when she said that she wanted to set us up, was, I had one question. I said, ‘Well is he nice?’”

    But according to the authors of Finding Freedom, Meghan conducted a thorough Google search on Harry ahead of their date.

    American journalist claims the Firm ‘hates’ women

    Writing for the Independent, Clémence Michallon stated that the royal family needs women.

    The author said the Firm needs women “not just because they occasionally sit at the top of its hierarchy, but also for PR.

    “When you read about the royal family in a magazine or in a newspaper, you will read about its women.”

    Clémence states that the rules of succession were changed in 2013, when Prince George was born.

    She wrote: “The rules of succession changed to favour the eldest child, rather than the eldest son.”

    Speaking on the future of the Institution, she said: ” If it’s going to be here at all, then it needs to evolve.

    “Giving the ladies it so essentially needs a fair shake might be the best place to start.”

    Duchess of Sussex put the Royal family on trial in her new interview

    The Duchess of Sussex put the Royal family on trial in her new shock interview with The Cut, resulting in a swirl of controversy.

    Meghan Markle recently spoke to New York based The Cut, where she made shock claims that members of the British public had called her and Prince Harry's two children the "N-word".

    But Meghan's bombshell interview left many baffled, when sherevealed she'd taken steps to "forgive" the Royal Family for her "treatment" when part of the Firm – and comparing herself to Nelson Mandela.

    And while her claims are yet to be substantiated, many have criticised her for using her royal title to secure interviews while also slamming the Firm.

    Writing in the Telegraph, Allison Pearson said Meghan's "grievances grow ever bolder and more extravagant, floating free of any observable reality."

    She said: "Clearly, it’s time the Sussexes lost their royal titles whose privileges they enjoy without the accompanying responsibilities and restraints."
