Megyn Kelly Slams Prince Harry As ‘Insecure’ After Netflix Special: ‘He Needs A Therapist, Not An Annoying Wife’
Akin to Piers Morgan, Megyn Kelly has not been shy about expressing her thoughts on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle over the years, so it was inevitable that she was going to have a *lot* to say about their $100M Netflix Harry & Meghan docuseries which premiered on Thursday, December 8th and concluded on Thursday, December 15th.
Megyn Kelly Slams ‘Harry & Meghan’ On SiriusXM Podcast
The 52-year-old media personality didn’t hold back on her SiriusXM podcast The Megyn Kelly Show on Monday, December 12th, and called the docuseries a “boring, uninspiring, interminable waste of time,” adding that it’s less of a “tell all” and more of a “tell what you think makes you look good.” Wow!
“Those are three hours I’ll never get back,” she quipped, before going on to talk about Prince Harry, 38, needing help to work through issues such as his mother’s death, which he doesn’t appear to be getting from the 41-year-old former Suits actress.
“Good gracious is this man insecure,” Kelly said, before going on to suggest that he is still “carrying emotional baggage” following the late Princess Diana’s death when he was just 12 years old. “He clearly hasn’t worked out the trauma of his mother’s premature death,” Kelly said, and then suggested that he needs “a real psychotherapist” to help him, “not a whiny, woke, annoying wife.”
"Believe it or not this couple is still complaining," Kelly continued. "From the Montecito mansion, with two beautiful, perfectly healthy children, a little chicken coop and flower garden out back, matching Uggs for Meghan and her toddler, all royal titles still intact complete with matching stationery, and nearly 200 million dollars in the bank thanks to their insatiable desire to 'finally tell their story.' Like to Oprah. And on Spotify. And to New York Magazine. And in a memoir. And… well you get the point."

Megyn Kelly Slams Meghan Markle's Comments About Her Father
Kelly also didn’t hold back when it came to what Meghan said about her estranged father, Thomas Markle, who she thought didn’t deserve to be ghosted just because of the small mistakes he made with the media. "She doesn't have a dad? What a farce. She does have a dad. He raised her and loved her and paid for her college and never asked for any of this attention," Kelly said.
"He screwed up in dealing with the paparazzi – staging photos of himself getting ready for her wedding reportedly in exchange for money. Not good but was it really unforgivable?" she asked. "One mistake after a lifetime of loving and supporting her? You know who doesn't have a dad? Me, and millions of others out there who would kill to have just one more Christmas with them."
Kelly's Previous Criticism
This isn’t the first time Kelly has taken a swipe at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Just last month on her Megyn Kelly Show podcast, she slammed the mom-of-two for some comments she made on her own Archetypes podcast, including the way she kept praising her husband – which Twitter found to be quite a strange thing to criticize her for – saying: "We get it. You bagged the gorilla," and "Congratulations! You got the big bear. You want us to know." Kelly also slammed the comments the Duchess made about feeling objectified when she was a briefcase girl on Deal or No Deal before landing her role in Suits, saying 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." Kelly went on to add: "She loved every minute of it! She wanted to be objectified!!"
Kelly also had several digs at Prince Harry too, in particular how he and Meghan continue to trash the royal family, saying: "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."
