Royal commentator Richard Eden hit out at Sussex biographer Omid Scobie for an “unintentionally hilarious” column. He described Mr Scobie as being the Sussexes’ “most outspoken cheerleader”. Writing in his column for Yahoo, Mr Scobie had said Meghan “finally has her voice back”.
He wrote: “After settling into a new life in California, the public’s time with Meghan has been surprisingly minimal.
“Though the duchess has opened up on occasion, including a deeply personal op-ed on miscarriage in 2020, she has really only been seen via her ongoing charitable work.
“Her personal life and image are still very much shaped through the lens of the media.
“But that could all be about to change after the launch of Archewell Audio’s first podcast, Archetypes.”
Mr Scobie added: “As someone who has been called every name under the sun, it’s not only an important conversation about how society talks about women, but also a clever way of taking on the detractors Meghan was previously unable to answer back to.
“Once silenced by the establishment, it’s clear that Meghan finally has her voice back.
“A voice that will be very familiar to those who followed her before Harry.
“This time, however, she’s brought an entire movement alongside it.”
But hitting out at Mr Scobie’s comments on Twitter, Mr Eden wrote: “[Omid Scobie’s] latest column (I read it so you don’t have to) is unintentionally hilarious.
“The Duchess of Sussex’s most outspoken cheerleader claims [Meghan] is now leading ‘an entire movement’.”
Mr Scobie made his comments about the Duchess of Sussex after she launched the first episode of her “Archetypes” podcast earlier this week.
The first episode of the podcast saw Meghan sit down with recently retired tennis star Serena Williams.

During the episode, entitled “The Misconception of Ambition”, Meghan and Ms Williams discussed motherhood, pregnancy, and the labels which try to limit women’s capabilities.
Meghan said she began to feel the “terrible” connotations behind the word “ambition” after she started dating Prince Harry.
She explained: “I don’t remember ever personally feeling the negative connotation behind the word ambitious until I started dating my now husband.
“And um, apparently ambition is, uh… a terrible, terrible thing, for a woman that is – according to some.”
She added: “So, since I’ve felt the negativity behind it, it’s really hard to un-feel it.
“I can’t unsee it, either, in the millions of girls and women who make themselves smaller – so much smaller – on a regular basis.”
The podcast, which aims to investigate the “labels that try to hold women back”, was born out of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s £18million deal with Spotify, signed in December 2020.
