AceShowbiz - Gayle King jumped to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's defense amid criticism over their new Netflix docuseries, "Harry & Meghan". During her appearance in the Thursday, December 8 episode of "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen", Gayle noted that the show isn't a "reality show."
In the episode, Andy joked about how Meghan previously said that she wasn't interested in doing a reality show. In response, the "CBS Mornings" anchor corrected the host, "It's not a reality show. It's not."
Gayle also showed excitement for the six-part docuseries. The award-winning journalist said that she "can't wait" to tune in to the new docuseries, which arrived on the streaming giant on Thursday.
Meanwhile, in other news related to Harry, a royal expert shared that the Duke of Sussex seemingly won't be getting warm welcome from the United Kingdom when he returns. "I can't imagine they'll be welcome," journalist Tom Bower told Page Six on Thursday.
"I don't think Harry will be ever welcome back in England," he added. Tom went on to claim that the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes most likely won't be invited to Prince Harry's dad King Charles III's coronation.
The journalist noted that Harry has distanced himself from the royal family. "I think he's just cutting himself off from it all. You know, he is turning himself into an outcast, and I don't think anyone's going to be looking to - to see if he's welcome here," the author of "Revenge: Meghan, Harry, and the War Between the Windsors" said, "And … with her, she's finished now for sure. And he's on the verge of being finished."
While Tom said that Charles "hates confrontation," he believed that the father and son's relationship has been severely damaged. "Charles hates confrontation … That's why he said in his first television interview address after the Queen died, 'Harry and Meghan, we send our love,' " Tom noted. "But, you know, the love has been spurned."
"His attempt at reconciliation is an attempt to get them to modify what they say to Netflix and [what] the book has got, and the reason is simply that Meghan is determined on fame and fortune and doesn't care two hoots about the royal family," he continued. "They didn't give [Markle] what she wanted - i.e., fame and celebrity on her terms - so now she's going to turn this against them."
Volume I of "Harry & Meghan" debuted on Thursday on Netflix, with Volume II being able for streaming on December 15.
