Meghan Markle news – Humiliation for ‘preachy’ Duchess as Netflix Pearl cancellation ‘proves her woke bubble has burst’

MEGHAN Markle has been left humiliated after her “woke bubble” was “burst” by Netflix axing her series, a writer has sensationally claimed.

Over the weekend it was announced Meghan’s upcoming animated series Pearl was quietly dumped by Netflix.

Prince Harry‘s wife served as executive producer on the show, working with a number of bigwigs including David Furnish, Elton John‘s husband.

But writing for The Telegraph, Matthew Lynn said the Duchess’ “dire-sounding Pearl was a perfect example” of how Netflix’ has “been captured by a brand of preachy, politically correct, woke programming that is at risk of driving away audiences”.

He suggests Pearl’s drop from Netflix demonstrates how streaming companies “are starting to work out that sanctimonious woke programming doesn’t pull in the viewers.”

Lynn continued: “Dull, worthy, preachy, and sermonising (what were the chances that the inspiring female leaders featured would include an animated Mrs Thatcher discussing the importance of controlling inflation, or indeed a CGI Queen Elizabeth I on the making of the modern world in Tudor England? I am just taking a wild guess here, but possibly not very high), it embodied the worst of Woke-flix.

“But it goes a lot deeper than that. Very soon the entertainment industry will have to get back to being what it should have always remained: an entertainment industry.

“Its values should be neither right or left of centre, and with a few obvious boundaries such as preventing racism or sexism, it shouldn’t promote any political agenda.”

    Brown suggests Meghan wasn’t at all comfortable with the set up and couldn’t get her head around the representation reason the trip – that she and Prince Harry were there representing the Queen.

  • Westminster Abbey coronation for Prince Charles and Camilla disrespectful to Princess Diana?

    The question of Prince Harry’s attendance is in question again.

    Talk has turned to whether he will attend his father’s coronation if it’s held at Westminster Abbey, where his mother’s funeral was held.

    Camilla will become Queen Consort; a title it is believed should have been for his mother.

    It is thought the Duke considers it to be disrespectful, though this is tradition – the Queen was also coronated there.

    Earlier this year, Prince Harry and Meghan failed to show up for Prince Philip‘s memorial service to mark one year after his passing.

    Recently there has been talk of whether he will be in attendance for his grandmother’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

  • Charles tasked with ‘sensitive trip’ to Canada

    Prince Charles has been praised by a royal commentator for mastering the art of diplomacy ahead of a sensitive royal tour.

    In an op-ed for Yahoo! news, royal author Omid Scobie said: “Later this month, Prince Charles will acknowledge the abuse of thousands of Indigenous children by Canada’s now dismantled residential school system during a tour with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

    “It’s an important moment that will include time with Indigenous leaders and community members in the spirit of reconciliation.

    “As one of the only family member aside from the Queen to truly master the art of diplomacy, I can see why Charles has been tasked with such a sensitive trip.”

  • Duchess is ‘too thin skinned’

    Meghan Markle has been warned against running for US President as she is “too thin-skinned” a royal author has claimed.

  • Security breach ‘bad timing’ in run up to Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

    The security breach comes as police and the military gear up for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next month.

    Ex-Met Police commander John O’Connor said: “The timing is very serious. They should already be on full alert for the Jubilee.

    “We are still under a continuing threat from terrorists, It’s this lackadaisical attitude which leads to disasters.”

    The Coldstream Guards protect Her Majesty and carry out ceremonial duties.

  • ‘Blow for the monarchy’

    Ms Brown admits Harry and Meghan stepping back from royal life in January 2020 was “definitely a blow for the monarchy”.

    She continued: “I think when the Queen does die, I do believe there’ll be a kind of desire for Harry to serve his country.

    “I think he’s going to want to rethink it, probably.

    “And frankly I don’t think the entertainment efforts are going that brilliantly, you know, sitting in Montecito.”

  • ‘Queen needs protecting from Prince HARRY’

    A royal expert has blasted Prince Harry for hurling “hand grenades” at his family and claims the Queen needs “protecting” from him.

    His concern for Her Majesty’s well-being was slammed by critics after it appeared to be another sly dig against The Firm.

    Now former Vanity Fair editor and royal author Tina Brown has hit out at the 37-year-old for adding another snarky comment to his long list of public remarks.

    The author told the Daily Mail: “Right now it’s not going to happen. 

    “And it’s not going to happen largely because Harry keeps lobbing these fresh hand grenades at the family, just when they’re beginning to think, ‘Well, can we re-establish some trust with the House of Sussex’. 

    “There’s yet another fusillade from an American talk show and everybody in the family thinks, ‘Well, what was that about?’

    “The most recent comments by Harry about, you know, he came to make sure the Queen was protected – a lot of people I think in the family thought, ‘Well actually she needs protecting from you, Harry’.

    “So that isn’t helpful.”

    A source told the Sunday People : “There have been reports about hikers going out on late-night jaunts close to Harry and Meghan’s place.

    “It’s a possible threat to them and the children, not least because there have also been claims hikers have been smoking and tossing their cigarettes on the ground.

    “Any fire there could easily get out of control.”

    Neighbour, Bruce Savin, told the Montecito Journal: “Last Saturday night, we saw dozens of hikers with flashlights at 9.30pm.

    “In disbelief we watched a hiker take a puff off his cigarette before extinguishing it under his foot.

    “Night hiking is dangerous enough but in a high-risk fire area it is an ­absolute threat to us all.”

    It’s not yet clear whether they were invited or whether they simply chose not to go.

  • Dan Wooton jibes at Meghan and Harry

    It was announced this weekend Meghan’s Netflix animation, Pearl, has been axed.

    Writing in for the Mail, Wooton said: “here’s the problem with putting a preening princess with zero executive experience at the heart of the creative decision-making process: She hasn’t the faintest idea how to make a compelling drama series.

    Pearl was shaping up to be worthy tosh – and Netflix is no longer prepared to treat even its British Royal Family staff members with kid gloves.”

  • Sussexes took ‘Pointless’ Australian trip to Australia

  • Biographer hits out

    The Duke of Sussex has yet to confirm whether he and his wife will be returning to the UK in June to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.

    Biographer Angela Levin is questioning whether the Duke is attempting to ‘manipulate’ the Jubilee celebrations after he has failed to confirm his plans.

    Speaking to TalkTV, Ms Levin said: “Harry’s said it was ‘security and everything else’ that’s stopping him.

    “What everything else can it be? I hate people who manipulate like that. Ever manipulating, ever putting themselves at the front, and all about me.

    “What about the Queen, for goodness’ sake? We now know she might not even be able to get onto the balcony.”

  • ‘She’s very good at talking a good game’

    It has recently been announced that ‘Pearl’, the animated series for which Meghan was to be an executive producer, was dropped by Netflix

    Speaking on TalkTV, Mike Graham said: “The great thing about Meghan is that she’s very good at talking a good game but not so much as carrying out the game.

    “We’ve not heard any more from her since that Oprah Winfrey interview about all of the things she claimed were true which were later debunked.

    “She’s kicked all that off into the side.

    “She’s only made one podcast for Spotify. They asked them to do a series of podcasts.

    “I think they’re going to try and gear up to see if they can do a second one. I do a podcast every day on this show.

    “These people who haven’t even got jobs can’t even manage to do one a year.”

    “This series was heartwarming and funny. It would have inspired young girls and spoke to the underrepresented.

    “It would have been so meaningful to our audience.

    “I’m feeling for our team and everyone who helped along the way.

    “It was an honour to lead such a talented team from around the world.

    “You brought an abundance of passion to Pearl and I’m SO proud of what we were able to accomplish and very grateful to have worked with each of you.”

    The Duchess of Sussex is expected to launch her first-ever podcast – Archetypes – produced exclusively for the music-sharing platform Spotify this summer.

    Speaking to TalkTV, Ms Levin said: “Spotify is waiting for the summer for her to do another thing which is about women who are stereotyped.

    “Where does it come from? She’s going to speak to historians and women who feel stereotyped.

    “But hang on, what’s going on with it? Nothing yet so it’s very similar to Netflix.

    “It’s all about her, being a proud woman but actually, it’s sort of passé.”

    She added: “We’ve all moved on, most women are ok, the thing now is gender rather than actually being a woman.”

  • ‘It’s becoming this saga’

    A number of royal commentators have called on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to avoid the festivities as to not overshadow Her Majesty’s achievement.

    Speaking with the MailOnline’s Palace Confidential, Richard Eden said: “I really get the impression that Harry and Meghan are loving all the speculation about whether they’ll come for the Jubilee or not.

    These comments come in relation to The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, an event that marks her as Britain’s longest-ever serving monarch.

    “What should be the wonderful celebrations of the Queen’s amazing long reign, instead it’s sort of becoming this saga or will-they-won’t-they-come?” Eden added.
