Piers Morgan isn’t the only one to publicly bash Meghan Markle, as Megyn Kelly has also slammed the Duchess of Sussex – in particular, the things she said on her latest podcast!

Criticism For Archetypes Podcast

The 51-year-old journalist and media personality is no fan of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, having criticized them on several occasions over the years. And her latest criticism came on the Tuesday, November 1st episode of The Megyn Kelly Show on SiriusXM when she slammed the 41-year-old mom-of-two for constantly referring to Prince Harry as her “husband” on her Archetypes podcast, when she was “talking about him helping her get the kids ready in the morning.”

In case you missed it, Meghan was joined on her podcast by comedian and Better Things showrunner Pamela Adlon to discuss the ‘archetype’ of the good wife/bad wife. Meghan and Pamela were discussing the challenges mothers face during that ‘morning rush’ of getting everyone ready in the morning when Meghan started opening up about the “chaotic” and “whirlwind” time in her own household.

Revealing to Pamela that mornings in the Sussex household usually involves keeping “two monitors on for the kids to hear them,” making breakfast for all “three of them” (in reference to Prince Harry and their two kids, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1), doing lunchboxes, and then getting out the door. Pamela interjected that she hoped “dad was being a good contributor to the kid time,” when Meghan proudly stated, “Oh, my husband? He’s great!” And that comment in particular, for some reason, did *not* go down well with Megyn!

“We get it. You bagged the gorilla,” Kelly said, when talking with Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan author Christopher Anderson, who is coming out with a brand new book about Prince Harry’s father, titled: The King: The Life of Charles III. “Congratulations! You got the big bear. You want us to know,” she added.

Kelly then continued to slam both Meghan and Prince Harry and their apparent disrespect of the royal family – something Piers Morgan has spoken about on several occasions – adding: “There seems to be no limit on their appetite for ripping on the royals to whom they owe all of their fame and literally most of their fortune.”

Megyn Slams Meghan's 'Deal Or No Deal' Comments

The Sussex's morning routine was just the tip of the iceberg, as Megyn also had a *lot* to say about Meghan's infamous comments about being "objectified" and treated "as a bimbo" when she appeared as a briefcase girl on Deal or No Deal in 2006. Meghan told Paris Hilton in a previous Archetypes episode that she felt like her appearance on the gameshow "was solely about beauty, and not necessarily about brains." She added: "I would end up leaving with this pit in my stomach, knowing I was so much more than what was being objectified on the stage. I didn’t like feeling forced to be all looks and little substance. And that’s how it felt for me at the time, being reduced to this specific archetype."

However, Kelly wasn’t buying what Markle said, insisting that she "knew exactly what she was getting herself into on that job and it was no surprise to her that they wanted her to look as good as possible while doing it." "What she’s trying to con us on now is whether she enjoyed it," she added, calling Meghan the "Duchess of Duplicity." "She loved every minute of it! She wanted to be objectified!!"

Twitter Slams Megyn's Comments

Social media may not always be on Meghan's side – but it is seldom on Megyn's side either. As expected, the comments she made about the Duchess on both occasions did not go down well on Twitter – especially her issue with Meghan referring to Prince Harry as her husband – which soon caused #MeghansHusband to trend on the platform.

"Everyone deserves a husband who puts his wife and children first! Just like #MeghansHusband does for her and their kids!" exclaimed one fan, alongside a black and white picture of the couple from their wedding day. "I had to look into why #MeghansHusband was trending. It turns out someone that I never heard of until today, Megyn Kelly has an issue with Meghan Markle calling her husband...her husband? Racism comes in all forms. TAKE NOTE!" added another.

"Meghan's husband. There I said it. This makes a certain irrelevant Karen mad. Imagine calling the manager because someone called their husband, their husband. Jealousy and racism makes people stupid. #MeghansHusband," someone else commented. Another Twitter user wrote: "The fact is Megyn Kelly is choking and having sleepless nights simply because this handsome Prince in the world is Meghan Markle’s husband They are husband and wife and there is nothing she can do about it. #MeghansHusband #PrinceHarry #sussexsquad #MeghanMarkIe."
