Prince Harry and Meghan Markle drew flak during their trip to New York for a slew of reasons.

In its Oct. 17 issue, National Enquirer claimed that Prince Harry and Markle were branded hypocrites following their trip because of their contradicting stance on poverty.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been calling for the end of poverty, and they have also been expressing their concerns over the issue.

However, they were accused of flaunting their lavish lifestyle during their four-day trip.

The tabloid’s source more specifically attacked Markle for wearing a $7,500 designer outfit and $387,000 worth of jewelry.

“What was she thinking? How tone-deaf can you get?” the source said.

Prince Harry and Markle also attended an event that was aimed at promoting the largest-ever climate protection bill in the country.

“Then hours after speaking at the concert, they flew back to their $14 million California mansion on a private jet – something they do repeatedly. Harry and Meghan should be ashamed of themselves,” the source said.

Other than this, Prince Harry and Markle were also criticized for turning their four-day trip to New York into a royal tour.

Some royal fans and royal experts voiced their dismay toward Prince Harry and Markle especially since the couple previously quit their royal duties to live a quieter life in the United States.

But when they arrived in New York, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were reportedly joined by a massive entourage. And they also brought their own videographer with them.

Other critics went as far as slamming Markle for wearing oversized clothing when it was too hot in the Big Apple when she visited. And they also slammed her for having difficulty in shedding her unwanted pregnancy weight gain.

However, some of these criticisms are unfounded. It is important to note that Prince Harry and Markle are not the only members of the royal family who have been calling for the end of poverty.

They are not also the only members of the British clan who have been speaking up against climate change. And they aren’t the only members of the royal family that continue to take private jets and cars to their destinations.

However, Prince Harry and Markle are the ones who are mostly criticized by the press. And this is one of the reasons why they decided to quit The Firm.
