Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may have ruined their chances of living a celebrity lifestyle with their bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview, a royal commentator has claimed.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, and his 39 year old Duchess wife sat down for an explosive interview with the chat show legend, which aired in the UK earlier this month.

Making a number of claims about their time as part of the Royal family, Meghan claimed there were "concerns" over the colour of their son Archie's skin, that Kate Middleton had made her cry, and that they were already married before their lavish Windsor Castle ceremony in 2018 – the latter of which has now been retracted by a representative for the couple.

The Guardian's royal commentator now believes their interview will have cost them a life of mingling with other A-listers.

Barbara Ellen asked in her opinion piece: "Is this a good look for the 'global philanthropy'-minded couple? Put it this way: has Michelle Obama ever sat on a TV sofa b***hing about her sister-in-law?"

She added: "While it's accepted that such behaviour is offensive to the royals, it's forgotten that it's also the antithesis of how the mega-rich, uber-influential, notoriously private elite conduct themselves.

"The Sussexes aren't going after standard-issue celebrity: one doubts their game plan is to end up on Dancing with the Stars.


"This is about the higher echelons of fame, at least Beyoncé/Clooney level, maybe Obama/Gates, considering those philanthropic impulses, a bit of swishing around with earnestly normcore billionaires or trillionaires, tech moguls and the like."

Barbara went on suggest that the likes of celebrity Meghan and Harry seemingly aspire to be like are "a discreet breed, living in micro-managed worlds, operating a strict privacy-first code."

Adding: "These people are unlikely to feel true kinship with people who give explosive gut-spilling interviews, never mind leak private family conversations to showbiz journalists."
