Prince Harry, Meghan Markle seen as 'nauseating hypocrites' at Global Citizen Live
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have thrilled the crowd during their speech at the Global Citizen Live concert in New York over the weekend. But not royal biographer Angela Levin, who said their appearance appalled her.
The author of "Harry: A Biography of a Prince" criticised the couple's appearance on stage and likened them to cheerleaders. Especially the Duke of Sussex, who was seen cupping a hand to his ear as he waited to hear the cheers from the crowd...
She said the 37-year old acted "like a cheerleader, or master of ceremonies, whipping up the crowd with shouts of 'Come on, we want this! and the crowd yelling 'Yeah!' and Meghan chipping in with, 'It's got to happen.'"
Levin pointed out that the couple can hardly be considered experts about COVID-19 or climate change. She called them "vacuous and superficial" and attacked them for their use of private jets despite their lectures on sustainability.
Yes they are hypocrites, but it is also a situation requiring more than condemnation. Presumably a cheering audience doesn't see them as the charlatans they so clearly are.
Individual audience members may be aware of the hypocrisy but possibly they don't care because their message is up there on stage and to them that matters more than hypocrisy. Like football supporters they cheer their side even if the star player is a hypocritical creep.
