Howard Stern is not a fan of how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have portrayed themselves in their new Netflix docuseries, “Harry & Meghan.”
“They come off like such whiny bitches,” the radio host, 68, said Monday on his Sirius XM show. “I gotta tell you man, I just don’t get it.”
Despite his criticism, Stern said he empathized with Harry, 38, over the loss of his mother, Princess Diana, which was discussed in the doc.
“They treated her like s–t,” the “Private Parts” author said. “That Prince Charles was such a f–king c–t to Lady Diana … and I feel bad for Prince Harry losing his mother there.”
However, he added, “But Jesus Christ, when those two [Harry and Markle] start whining about ‘wha wha wha and they don’t like me,’ and she [Markle] wants to be beloved in this country.
“It’s just weird to see two people who keep screaming, ‘We wanted our privacy, we wanted the press to leave us alone,’ and then what is their special that they put out on Netflix?Showing you them and their kids and their life.”
Stern concluded, “It’s like the Kardashians except boring” and later added of Harry, “I think he’s eventually not gonna dig her. I’m telling you.”‘
After “Harry & Meghan” premiered last week, several people on social media expressed similar criticism, forcing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, 41, to issue a statement clarifying that “privacy” was not the reason they quit the royal family.
“Their statement announcing their decision to step back mentions nothing of privacy and reiterates their desire to continue their roles and public duties,” the couple told the New York Times on Dec. 8 via their press secretary Ashley Hansen.
“Any suggestion otherwise speaks to a key point of this series,” the spokeswoman added.
“They are choosing to share their story, on their terms, and yet the tabloid media has created an entirely untrue narrative that permeates press coverage and public opinion. The facts are right in front of them.”
Volume II of “Harry & Meghan” premieres this Thursday on Netflix. Volume I, which includes three episodes, is available on the streaming platform now.
