Meghan Markle blasted for using royal title for ‘commercial gain’


Meghan Markle blasted for using royal title for ‘commercial gain’


Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, will also add author of children’s books to her resume.

On June 8, Random House Children’s Books will release “The Bench,” a book written by Meghan Markle and illustrated by Christian Robinson.

Random House said in a press release that the book is “about the special bond between father and son – as seen through a mother’s eyes.”  The story began with a poem Meghan penned for her spouse, Britain’s Prince Harry, on Father’s Day 2019, soon after the couple received son Archie, according to the duchess.

Meghan, who is expecting her second child, a baby girl, said, “That poem became this story.” “Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolor illustrations that capture the warmth, joy and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life; this representation was particularly important to me, and Christian and I worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens. My hope is that ‘The Bench’ resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine.”

According to the press release, the longtime “Suits” actress will also narrate the audiobook edition of “The Bench.”

Peter Ford, a Sunrise reporter in Australia, said: “What was she going to do? She was either going to write a children’s book or country music songs.


“The book has already gone right to the top of the bestseller list based on pre-sales and orders.

“The thing about this is although it’s a nice feel-good thing to write a lovely children’s book, this is not being done for the Archewell Foundation. It’s not being done for charity.

“This money is going straight into her Glomesh which is why it gets very tricky when she starts putting on the Duchess of Sussex title on the book because this is for commercial gain and you cannot use a royal title for commercial gain.”

Ali Miraj, a BBC Radio 5 contestant, has slammed the pair for using their royal status for “monetary gain”

Mr. Miraj explained: “It’s interesting the fact they want to go and make Netflix documentaries and hang out with Oprah and I’m fine with that.

“What I’m not fine with is using the Sussex royal’s brand to go and monetise it, that’s what I’m not comfortable with.

“The Royal Family is one of the most prized brands on the planet and bits of that accrue to the UK nation as a whole.

“It’s not private to the Queen or anyone else, it accrues to us and if you then have a concept where you’re going to use that title for monetary gain, it doesn’t sit well with me at all.

“If they want to have a private life, fine. If they want to be woke celebrities, no problem with that.

“Dispense of your titles, renounce your titles, and just be Meghan Markle and Harry Mountbatten-Windsor. I’ve got no issue with that.”

Meghan Markle has also been criticized by Piers Morgan for using her royal title, Duchess of Sussex.

Piers has renewed his critique of the Duchess of Sussex in his latest column for the Daily Mail, now challenging the usage of her royal title in the author credit of her latest venture, a new children’s book called The Bench.

In his column, Piers wrote: “Yet when it comes to flogging her book, what author name does Meghan Markle use?

“Ah, of course: ‘Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex.”

He goes on to say: “Yes, she continues to cynically exploit her royal titles because she knows that’s the only reason anyone is paying her vast sums of money to spew her uniquely unctuous brand of pious hectoring gibberish in Netflix documentaries, Spotify podcasts or children’s books.

“Of course, her equally cynical publishers don’t give a damn about any of this shocking double standard.”
