Meghan Markle ranks pretty high on the list of unlikeable people. Her incessant complaining about being oppressed while attaining multi-millionaire status. Her insisting that she confronts racism everywhere she turns, yet was able to snag a prince whose family threw her a lavish wedding. Her begging for privacy at the same time granting interviews, writing books, hosting a podcast, and filming a Netflix special. Not bad for someone who claims to be suffering.
One person who has weighed in on all things Meghan is former Real Housewife of New York City Bethenny Frankel, who took to TikTok to opine on the Sussexes in general and MeAgain Migraine Meghan. Frankel did not hold back on the Duchess and her public image mishandling, calling her “polarizing,” “a sh*t show” and “a woman without a country.” She prefaced her video with a premonition that she will be canceled for expressing her opinion on Duchess Meghan, but said that she should be able to say what she wants without fear of reprisal.
“She is a terrible, terrible businessperson, strategist, she’s playing checkers, not chess, because she is overplaying her hand, and she is painting herself into a corner, becoming a woman without a country,” Frankel added.
Meghan and hubby Prince Harry notably left the UK and official royal duties almost two years after they tied the knot in 2018. Ostensibly they made the decision to resign from the royal household to avoid the intense media scrutiny that had followed them since they announced they were a couple and to mitigate the pressure of royal life. However, they have not stayed in the background, not shied away from public events.

Frankel noted that Meghan was not comfortable being a royal and “got out of something that was a terrible situation for her.” Yet, Meghan has not been graceful in stepping back, and many have questioned her motives for doing so, and the choices she has made since then. While some have publicly derided Meghan, others have stayed quiet, preferring to gossip within the confines of friendship.
As Breitbart reports, Frankel went on to say that back when she was criticizing Prince Harry and Markle’s Oprah interview — in which the Duchess of Sussex suggested the British royal family is racist — she had “many A-list people text me that they agree with me secretly.” She suggested that much of Meghan’s problem is in her delivery of the messaging, and offered that those advising her may not be the best and brightest people.

Even Prince Harry was not spared Frankel’s diatribe, implying that he is the weak link in the relationship. “Unfortunately, she is not married to someone who can help her navigate this, because it doesn’t seem like she listens to him, and he may not even have any input,” she said. “He could be Fredo or Sonny from The Godfather — because he, in his own life, has made some bad choices. It’s not a great combination.”
Apart from her TikTok videos, Frankel also has her own podcast, ‘Just B.’ In a recent episode, she questioned whether Meghan wanted to fully leave the royal family in order to change it, or just use its connections and caché to further her own career. “when you leave the royal family, leave the royal family. It’s behind you, you learned something, you said it, we heard you say the same thing five times five different ways, you’re probably not changing the royal family.”
