After a disastrous month owing to the sad demise of The Queen, things have finally started to come to normalcy. Speaking of which, everyone’s attention has once switched to Meghan Markle from Her Majesty. The Duchess of Sussex once again finds herself at the center of criticism. This time as royal experts comment regarding her Spotify Podcast.

The former working royal has worked with her sweat and tears to gain the respect that she deserves, but it seems even after refuting the accusations, a suspicion nonetheless lingers. Although Markle took her greatest stance for gender equality, it was enough according to royal experts.

Royal experts call Meghan Markle pausing her Spotify podcast a PR move

Royal author and biographer, Daniela Elser, has issued insights on a huge list that points out Meghan’s faults. In a news piece for the New Zealand Herald, she issued a disclaimer that read, “Meghan Markle’s biggest mistake comes into focus”. According to her, Meghan allegedly “lacks contribution” to the fight for ‘gender equality. She particularly targeted her Spotify Podcast, claiming the current hold on her episodes since the Queen’s death was more of a “PR exercise.

Her point of criticism was the absence of any steps or actions taken towards what had been promised. “Speaking up is great but where is the follow-through?” she asked. According to her words and preachings, Meghan should have been the front woman feminist of the country. She claims that The Duchess has the passion, brains, connections, and the media knowledge to really do the sort of work that can move the dial.

Quoting the Roe vs Wade case as “impassioned, eloquent, urgent stuff,” that the Supreme Court struck down, Danielle expected Meghan to show up on this extremely important case. However, Markle is yet to make a comment on the same.
