King Charles needs to step in and put an end to the endless attention around the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle’s former friend said.
TV presenter Lizzie Cundy, who struck up a friendship with the Duchess of Sussex in 2013, thinks the Sussexes need to end their “moaning and whinging” and says they’ve built a career “out of complaining.”
“In light of the recent cartoons mocking Meghan and Harry, King Charles needs to intervene and stop her memoirs,” Cundy told the Mirror.
“Enough now of their moaning and whinging, all they do is backstab and make a career out of complaining.”
“It’s so bad now that we’re a laughing stock across the pond making cartoon features of the couple – it’s time for this to stop,” added Cundy, who no longer boasts a friendship with Markle.
The Sussexes found themselves the butt of the joke in the latest “Family Guy” episode, in which their money-hungry ways were mercilessly mocked by the animated show.
“Meghan can forget a career in politics because, with their moaning, they’ve become laughingstocks, not just here but in the States,” Cundy notes. “Their celebrity friends have moved away from them. They’ve had to try and reinvent themselves but they don’t know how. They make money by slating our royal family.”
Cundy added that Charles “needs to intervene” to block any potential projects Markle may have in the works, such as a rumored memoir.
“Meghan, put the pen down, the royal family can’t take it anymore and the British public has had enough,” Cundy told the outlet, addressing her former pal directly.
“The royals can’t take another cartoon series of them being mocked. Please, for once, put the pen down. King Charles, grow a backbone and tell her straight.”
The episode in question roasted the couple over their Netflix deal, rumored to be worth $100 million, and showed Peter Griffin (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) on an adventure to become a TV extra to make money.
“I’ll go it alone, just like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry,” he says.
The scene then cuts to animated versions of Harry and Meghan, lounging by a pool, when their butler comes with a check.
“Sir, your millions from Netflix for … No one knows what,” the butler says, to which Harry replies, “Put it with the rest of them.”
Markle then urged Harry that the pair needs to create a $250,000 sponsored Instagram post for Del Taco.
In March, Cundy told GB News that she “really got on” with Meghan after the pair met at a charity dinner in 2013, before their short-lived friendship ultimately crumbled.
“I was friends with Meghan for a while and I really got on with her,” she said at the time. “I was asked by a friend to look after her at a charity event and I thought, ‘Who is this woman?’ No one actually knew who she was.”
