According to Nigel Farage, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are ‘despicable’ for blaming racism against Meghan on Brexit. A six-part Netflix documentary series titled The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reveals details about the royal family and alleged racism and harassment by the British press.
According to Meghan in the first three episodes, which were released at 8am on Thursday, she finds the formality of royal life “surprising”, while Harry believes his family’s view of his wife is clouded by her being an actress.
As a result of negative press coverage about Meghan, Harry stated that articles in the press contained “racist undertones” as well as “outright racism”.
The documentary’s author David Olusoga says: “I wanted it to work, so many people wanted it to work.”. But the fairytale is embedding itself in a nation that is having a pretty toxic debate about the European Union.”
Then there is a sound bite from former British prime minister Boris Johnson and presenter Nigel Farage of GB News.
According to Olusoga: “If you go back and look at the social media at that moment, immigration is at the absolute centre of those debates, and immigration is very often in this country a cypher for race”.
Continuing, Prince Harry says: “The EU commissioned a report in 2016, exactly the same that our relationship became public. It warned that if the Government isn’t going to do something or if the media aren’t going to sort themselves out, that a culture war that already existed was going to become huge and become a real problem.”
In response, Nigel Farage said: “Well, perhaps no great surprise that Harry and Meghan choose to use Brexit as one of the causes for the terrible racism that was put against them.
“They draw on extreme left wing historians. They draw on fake news headlines from the Guardian and elsewhere.
“And what they’re really saying is that 52 per cent of Prince Harry’s country of birth are bad racist people.
“This is all about politics ultimately, isn’t it? This is all about short-term make money out of dissing the royal family and the United Kingdom and then long-term give a political platform from which Meghan can launch her career in the USA.
“I think in their actions, their behaviour towards their family and everybody else, they are nothing short of despicable.”
