Rob Jobson described Meghan Markle as “disingenuous” and Prince Harry as “unrecognisable”

Speaking on True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat, Jobson claimed that the Duchess of Sussex never planned on staying in the royal family.

He said: “Harry’s barely recognisable and I think she’s totally disingenuous.

“I think she had a plan from the outset that she wasn’t going to stick with it [The Royal Family] and it didn’t take long, before… all that thanking the royal family.

“The royal family would have done their best to have helped her and they would have tried.”

Meanwhile former Buckingham Palace press officer Dickie Arbiter discussed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s statement confirming they were not returning as senior members of the Royal Family.

Last week, a statement released by the Palace said it is “not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service”.

However, Meghan and Harry then quickly hit back with their own statement which said: “We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”

Discussing the couple’s statement, royal expert Dickie – who was the Queen’s press spokesman for 12 years from 1998 to 2000 – said: “It was petulant, it was rude, it was immature.”

Meanwhile, Jobson added: “The rudeness of the statement they issued after they left! Frankly, they have been given a lot of slack, but they were damn right rude to the Queen and the Royal Family.”

The Megxit confirmation came one month earlier than expected – as Meghan and Harry were granted a one-year trial to leave the Royal Family back in March 2020.
