MEGHAN Markle is “faking” her love for Prince Harry in a bid for a more high life, fears Germaine Greer.
The controversial feminist told Australian broadcaster 60 Minutes she was sceptical of just how authentic the Duchess had been in her marriage, with the outcome “likely to be disastrous”.
The 81-year-old said: All I can think is she’d better be in love.
If she’s been faking it all this time, oh boy, what misery. How many orgasms will it take? How many fake groans will get her through this?
Greers comments come afterPrince HarryandMeghan Markles decision to step back from the Royal Family last month.
Since quitting their roles as senior royals, it has been reported that Megan is looking for an agent in a possible return to showbiz, with Harry even caught on camera pitching his wife as a voice over artist to Disney CEO Bob Iger.
Many believe their self-imposed abdication was a ploy driven by the fame-hungry former Suits star in a bid to return to Hollywood.
Long-time royal critic Germaine Greer suggests there were warning signs of Megxit from the outset.
Greer told 60 Minutes the Duchess potential to manipulate her husband in order to climb the celebrity ladder was evident in their extravagant 32 million wedding, which was full of showbiz.
She said: The marriage was terrible too, because it was full of showbiz personalities, as if Megan lived in a completely artificial world.
“The whole point about showbiz – it’s not real, and it won’t sustain you.
Greer explained she wasn’t at all surprised when the couple announced their plans to step back from Royal duties just 599 days after walking down the aisle.
Just two years ago, she told 60 Minutes: “She’ll bolt. She’s bolted before, alluding to Meghans former failed marriage.
Her eerie prediction was based on the argument that a combination of boredom and pressure would see Meghan call time, adding: “But maybe shell take Harry with her.”
Greers scepticism was backed by Prince Harrys official biographer,
Angela Levin, who on Sunday claimed the Dukes bid to make his wife happy was to the detriment of himself, and that Meghans focus on celebrity was to blame for her unpopularity not racism.
Levin said: I think a lot of the criticism has come about because she sort of lectures the public on how they should behave, but not do it herself.
“We shouldn’t fly, but she can go off on private jets to Elton John and see the Clooneys and all that sort of thing.
Also speaking to 60 Minutes on Sunday, Trisha Goddard argued it was indeed the force of racist undercurrents in the UK that was to blame for the couples relocation to Canada.
She told reporter Tom Steinfort: There’s a narrative that’s been here long before Meghan Markle, which bubbled to the surface about this.
There are ways of saying things you know about, Them, exotic. A lot of it is also very misogynistic, Oh, she’s got Harry wrapped around her finger.
The television presenter added that the decision to step back from their royal duties was likely one made by Harry.
But she claims it was easier for the British public to turn on Meghan for the ‘Megxit’ mess, mimicking the public outcry: How can he possibly desert us? It must be her.
That’s the misogyny bit as well. If I can use that term, he’s p***y whipped, as they call it. I think it’s racism. I think it’s xenophobia. I think it’s misogyny, shes a strong woman.
Greer’s explosive claims came as the Duke and Duchess made their first post-royal public appearance.
Prince Harry gave a speechat a money summit for an investment bank held at a luxury five-star hotel in Miami.
Wife Meghan was also there for the swanky wealth event the first time they have been seen together since moving to Canada.
It is not yet known if or how much Harry was paid for the event at 1 Hotel South Beach, though media experts have predicted the couple could make 400,000 for a single speech.
