Meghan Markle and Harry ‘exploiting' royal connections says expert
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have partnered up with Spotify to introduce their new podcast Archewell Audio. However, commentator Darren Grimes has warned this could be a dangerous move by the Duke and Duchess. During his Reasoned show on Youtube, he said that this could put the Royal Family in a compromised position if the royal couple introduces anyone who holds strong political views.
Mr Grimes also reflected on what Meghan and Harry could talk about on this podcast and whether they would choose to delve into politics themselves.
He also questioned how the Royal Family would react to this possibility.
He said: “We have already seen that they have got their own honours and gongs to hand out now in competition with Her Majesty the Queen’s MBEs OBEs, Knighthoods you name it.
“Will Meghan and Harry be offering other platforms as far as politics is concerned too?
