The Duchess has recently launched her new venture

GB News presenter Andrew Pierce has hit out at the Sussexes, suggesting they have “run out” of things to say about the royals.

Since stepping back from royal duties in 2020, Meghan and Harry have been critical of the royal establishment and they have made that clear in a Netflix documentaries, an interview with Oprah Winfrey and Harry’s memoir, Spare.

Meghan’s latest venture with her new lifestyle brand, American Riviera Orchard, prompted discussion on Britain’s Newsroom as Lord Kulveer Ranger suggested it was “peak Harry and Meghan Markle”.

“They’re really struggling to get the content. It’s all about content”, he said.

“If you want people listening to your podcast and the clicks, you’ve got to have something to say.

“Originally it was, they were royals and there was something going on, now it’s the jam.”

Andrew waded in to say: “Is the point here that unless they’re bitching about the Royal Family, there’s no way they can monetise?”

He responded: “I think monetisation of the family only had so much room, they have to define themselves for the future.

“They’ve gone for a very crowded market.”

Andrew was scathing in his assessment of Meghan’s latest venture, arguing “nobody is going to tune into Netflix to see her making a pot of jam”.

Carole Malone also waded into the discussion to question why the Sussexes aren’t focused on “trying to save the world”, arguing that appeared to be their ethos as they initially cut ties with the Royal Family.

“The premise was, ‘I’m going to end world poverty’, they’re not doing that now”, she said.

“They have to make money now. You have to make a buck. This is how they are doing it, I think.”

Andrew then went onto suggest the couple have made a “terrible error” and they are now looking to “desperately reinvent the wheel”.

Meghan launched the new business venture last month with an Instagram teaser.

It was soft launched earlier this month with the Duchess sending out jars of strawberry jam to her friends ahead of formally bringing out a range of items.

Fashion designer Tracy Robbins was among those to post an image of the jar, which the Duchess sent out nestled in a basket of lemons.

Her jar was numbered “17 of 50” and she posed an image of the gift on her Instagram account with the words “Breakfast, lunch and dinner just got a little sweeter”.
