Political commentator Andrew Neil took aim at Meghan Markle as the Duchess of Sussex releases her first children’s book. The book is set to focus on the relationship between fathers and their sons while being based on the relationship between Prince Harry and his son Archie. While speaking on This Morning, Andrew Neil insisted it was hypocritical of Meghan to focus on this topic.
He insisted that Meghan and Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey did no good for Harry and his father’s relationship.
He added it was concerning that the front page reads “Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex” after the pair have attacked the institute of the monarchy.
He said: “You say it is on the relationship between fathers and sons or fathers and their kids, I’m not sure her interview with Oprah did very much for that particular relationship for Prince Charles and Prince Harry.
“I do think it is interesting that she has got the Duchess of Sussex plastered across the front page.

“This is after having savaged the Royal Family in that interview with some really major complaints.
“Most of which we can check factually turn out to be true like them being wedded in advance or Archie being denied being a Prince.”
Mr Neil insisted this book was about making money and called for people to focus less on the royal pair.
“I think there is a little bit of hypocrisy here, she is going to make money, that is the aim of this now.
“My sense is that the sooner the media and the public lose interest in this couple that live just north of Los Angeles in California the better we will all be.
“It is no big deal really.
“Having read a little bit of it in the publisher’s press release, the pros are pretty terrible.”
Many commentators have attacked the Duchess for the release of her new book, most notably former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgn.
Mr Morgan wrote in a Daily Mail column: “Notwithstanding Ms Markle’s seemingly unlimited thirst for committing attention-seeking acts of gargantuan hypocrisy, this seemed beyond parody. But it was real.
“I wonder how much these touching sentiments will resonate with her own family, or her husband’s?
“Lest we forget, Ms Markle has ruthlessly disowned her father Thomas and refuses to have anything to do with him despite the fact they now live just 70 miles from each other.”
