Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Criticized as “Montecito Muppets” for Silence

In a scathing critique by a former royal correspondent, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been disparagingly labeled “Montecito muppets” due to their perceived silence during the Christmas period. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who have been relatively quiet in recent weeks, are speculated to be responding to the aftermath of Omid Scobie’s controversial book, Endgame. While the couple shared their annual Christmas card, they refrained from posting any messages on social media on December 25.

Charles Rae, a former royal correspondent for The Sun, expressed his views on GB News, stating, “It’s great to have had a Christmas period where we’ve not heard anything from the Montecito muppets. They’ve been quiet ever since the fallout of Omid Scobie’s book Endgame.” Rae suggested that the couple’s silence may be a reaction to the book, insinuating their possible involvement in its creation or authorization of individuals to speak on their behalf.

Omid Scobie’s book stirred controversy within the royal family, especially after a Dutch version seemingly revealed the names of individuals accused of racism by Harry and Meghan during their interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021. Despite the couple not explicitly naming the family members in question, suspicions arose regarding the accidental publication of an early draft containing the names.

The couple’s Christmas card featured a cheerful photo from the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games in Düsseldorf. The card expressed holiday wishes on behalf of Prince Harry and Meghan, along with gratitude for support in 2023. Notably, the card excluded images of their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, a departure from previous years when glimpses of them were occasionally shared with the public.
