Radio shock jock Howard Stern slammed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for acting like “whiny b—–s” during a blistering review of their widely scrutinized Netflix docuseries.
During Monday’s episode of his SiriusXM radio show, Stern and his co-host Robin Quivers joked about their struggles to watch “Harry & Meghan.”
Stern said he had barely gotten through “almost the first episode” – and was already fed up with their antics.
“It’s been painful,” Stern said. “I wouldn’t stay with it, but my wife wants to watch it, so, we have shows we watch, but they come off like such whiny b—–s. I gotta tell you man, I just don’t get it.”
“I get Prince Harry being pissed off at the monarchy for his mother. They treated her like s–t,” Stern added. “That Prince Charles was such a f—ing c–t to Lady Diana.”
“That’s your father,” Quivers agreed while referencing Prince Harry. “You gotta deal with the father who really screwed over your mother and knew what he was doing the whole time he did it. There was nothing real about that relationship from beginning to end.”
Stern expanded on his criticism of the Sussexes.
“And I feel bad for Prince Harry losing his mother and all that, so you got my empathy there,” Stern said. “But Jesus Christ, when those two start whining about ‘wah wah wah,’ and ‘they don’t like me’ and she wants to be beloved in this country, but man, oh man.”
The couple released the explosive six-part docuseries as part of a production deal with Netflix reportedly worth $100 million. The series provides an inside look at their relationship and the circumstances that led the couple to step away from the British royal family in 2020.
“it’s just very weird to watch two people who keep screaming, ‘We wanted our privacy, we wanted the press to leave us alone,’” Stern said. “And then what is their special that they put out on Netflix? Showing you them and their kids and their life. It’s like the Kardashians – except boring. You know what I mean?”
“It would be one thing if all the footage was from now,” Quivers chimed in. “But they’ve even got footage of them taping themselves on their phones when they’re going through all this. So they were always recording themselves.”
“It’s just weird. It seems so hypocritical,” Stern replied. “I think we heard the story when Oprah interviewed you the first time.”
The first episodes of the series were panned by many viewers who felt they lacked any new drama.
Stern added that it was “hard to relate” to the ex-royals after getting a glimpse at their lavish lifestyle.
“When you see those palaces and you see the grounds, I could live my whole life in that palace, in the grounds,” Stern said. “Cause you know, I live in my house. I haven’t left in three years. It doesn’t seem like prison to me. You know, and then you got butlers and cars and food and, f—k you.”
Near the end of the segment, Stern suggested the couple might break up. The pair married in 2018 and have two young children.
“I think he’s eventually not gonna dig her. I’m telling you,” Stern said.
