Several national newspapers have launched scathing attacks on Harry and Meghan, saying they had shown no understanding of what their roles entailed, and had been disrespectful to the Queen.
The Daily Mirror, one of three papers facing lawsuits from the couple, fumed in its coverage about “an extraordinary day in the history of the royal family”.
“And he didn’t even have the guts or decency to tell her, or his own father, of the bombshell he was about to drop in their laps.”
“Well, good riddance,” Ms Bletchly added. “I for one have had a bellyful of Harry’s eco-warrior hypocrisy.
“The tragedy is he was once the most loved of the modern royals – from the moment he walked behind his mother’s coffin our hearts ached for him. Then he met Meghan. But boy, she changed our Harry.”
