Meghan Markle, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, have faced criticism from royal commentators after they spoke to the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have sparked fury after giving statements about the “uncomfortable past” of the Commonwealth. Royal author and expert, Robert Jobson, has hit out at the couple for “disrespecting” the Queen.
Speaking to talkRADIO, Mr Jobson said: “I think that to criticise the Queen’s life work is disrespectful.
“I think that things have changed since the Queen inherited this role as head of the Commonwealth.
“At that time, it was only a handful of countries who had joined the Commonwealth.
“In that time there has been a huge improvement and development in what has happened in terms of money put into education and professions which are linked through the Commonwealth.

“To me, Meghan Markle doesn’t understand the Commonwealth.
“Harry is frankly just picking bits out that he wants to.
“It’s very easy to critcise something from a distance in a millionaire’s mansion that has actually done a lot of good over the years.
“I really do think that they should think very carefully before criticising and asking the British public to apologise again for our behaviour in the Commonwealth.”
“I think there is a hell of a lot we together need to acknowledge.”
Meghan added: “We have to in this moment and time say, we’re going to have to be a little uncomfortable right now.
“It’s only in pushing through that discomfort we get to the other side of this and find the place you’re all talking about.
“Equality has not put anyone on the back foot, it puts us all on the same footing which is a fundamental human right and that’s what we’re talking about here.”
