Royal commentator Robert Jobson has criticised Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for releasing a “woke nonsense” statement regarding the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan on their website Archewell. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said they “feel the many layers of pain” and were “left speechless” by the dramatic scenes unfolding in Kabul, and urged people to donate to organisations in need.
In an interview with GB News presenter Dan Wootton, Mr Jobson said: “My feeling on this is that this is the couple that wanted their privacy, they craved their privacy.
“They are desperate to be on the front pages at every opportunity, how they can say they are experiencing how the world is on the edge from their 15-million mansion in the heart of California, I really don’t know.
“I do think that when Prince Harry was a member of the Royal Family and he had a voice to help people, it’s a shame he’s not got that voice at the moment to really get some action going.
“Some of our comrades have come home from Afghanistan and are really going through a mental crises – he was a person who could galvanise those people.”
He continued: “This sort of guff doesn’t mean anything, it’s more woke nonsense from Princess Meghan and Prince Harry that nobody’s actually listening to.
“They never got the invite to the Obama party and they’re desperate to get on the front page.”
Meghan and Harry’s released the statement through their non-profit organisation Archewell on Tuesday, after witnessing the dramatic takeover of Kabul and the mass evacuation operation currently underway at the airport.
In the space of a week, the Taliban managed to seize power in all of Afghanistan’s provinces, after the US withdrew their troops following a 20-year war. Thousands have fled their homes and are waiting to be airlifted from Kabul airport, with British and US troops deployed to the region to assist with evacuation efforts.
In their statement, the Sussexes said: “When any person or community suffers, a piece of each of us does so with them, whether we realize it or not. And though we are not meant to live in a state of suffering, we, as a people, are being conditioned to accept it. It’s easy to find ourselves feeling powerless, but we can put our values into action — together.”
“As an international community, it is the decisions we make now — to alleviate suffering among those we know and those we may never meet — that will prove our humanity.”
Prince Harry also released a statement through the Invictus Games Foundation, where he called on veterans to “support one another”.
The Duke served within the British military for 10 years and undertook two tours of Afghanistan.
In 2008, he was deployed to the region but was removed after 10 weeks after an Australian magazine broke the media blackout designed to ensure his safety, and published his location.

He returned to the Helmand Province in 2012 to work as an Apache helicopter, qualifying as an aircraft commander.
The Duke resigned from his military career in 2015 in order to become a full-time working member of the Royal Family, and established the Invictus Games.
As a Paralympic-style sporting event, the Invictus Games encourages injured servicemen and women to participate in sports tournaments.
After deciding to leave the Royal Family in 2020, Prince Harry was stripped of his military appointments and royal patronages, as part of the couple’s Megxit agreement with Buckingham Palace.
These appointments included Captain General Royal Marines, Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Honington, and Commodore-in-Chief of Small Ships and Diving, Royal Naval Command.
