Sky News presenter denounces ‘hypocrites’ Meghan and Harry after previous ‘confidentiality’ pleas

A Sky News presenter slammed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry following the Duchess’s recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

Sky News Australia host Andrew Bolt hinted that the royal couple had been hypocritical, this was the Sussexes’ second major TV interview this year despite their previous pleas for confidentiality.

Harry and Meghan stepped down from royal duties last year and moved to California, apparently far from the royal spotlight in the UK.

Their first explosive interview, with talk show legend Oprah Winfrey, aired eight months ago.

Bolt, 62, asked how Meghan’s latest appearance on The Ellen Show matched the couple’s previous requests.

He fumed: “But wait, didn’t the same Meghan Markle and Prince Harry say last year that they had taken a” revised media approach to ensure diverse and open access to their work “and this ‘updated approach aims to engage with grassroots media organizations and promising young journalists’?

“When was Ellen DeGeneres last listed as ‘Young Journalist in the Making’? “

Bolt’s guest on the show, YouTuber and commentator Daisy Cousens, agreed and pointed to “cognitive dissonance” during major public appearances after asking for “privacy.”

She also agreed with Bolt about the Sussexes’ claim that they wanted to work with “promising journalists”.

“Where are they? Since then it’s Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah, Time magazine, Netflix, Apple TV,” she said.

“For goodness sake the closest thing to either of them has been ‘field journalism in the making’, which is when Prince Harry did a podcast with the comedian. Hollywood artist Dax Shepard.

“And all they did was talk about how difficult it is to be extremely famous in Los Angeles.”
