Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced two new Netflix projects

Commentator Lizzie Cundy has hit out at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for their "ridiculous" decision to delve into new Netflix projects, despite the Royal Family's cancer concerns.

Their fresh announcement comes as King Charles and Princess Kate both continue to receive treatment for cancer, which was announced earlier this year.

Despite the ongoing health concerns for the King and Princess, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are revelling in their stateside success, as it was announced that the couple will produce two new projects for Netflix.

Meghan will create a new cooking and lifestyle series, and Harry will explore the behind-the-scenes world of professional polo.

Speaking to GBN America, Lizzie Cundy criticised the royal couple for "not being relatable" at a time where the Royal Family is facing a double health crisis.

In discussion with host Nana Akua, Cundy said the Duchess is "trying to relaunch herself as a Gwyneth Paltrow type", and is "not reading the room" in regards to the King and Princess of Wales.

Discussing the Netflix projects, Cundy raged: "They've got these new Netflix shows about making jam and cookery, and Harry's is about polo playing, it's not really relatable.

"I think it's pretty insensitive when Catherine's going through what she's going through and the King is going through his cancer issues too, it's really insensitive, to be honest."

Nana agreed with Cundy, and admitted she finds it "fascinating" that Harry and Meghan "don't realise how ridiculous they're coming across".


Nana added: "I do find it quite astonishing that they think that people won't look on this and think how ridiculous they are.

"It feels to me that they should realise how ridiculous they're coming across, how heartless and insensitive they look, but they don't appear to realise any of that."

Cundy raged: "They never read the room do they? They're so into themselves they can't see the wood for the trees!

"We've heard Meghan going on about the trolling and all the horrible comments and you just think, look at what you've actually done to poor Kate."

Nana then opened the discussion to Meghan Markle's other latest project, American Riviera Orchard, which saw the royal release a limited supply of 50 jams to her friends and American influencers.

Cundy said royal fans are "sick to death of Meghan across the pond" in America, and the launch of her brand is "fake and phoney".

Hitting out at the brand, she told GBN America: "I don't think anyone will be interested at all. It's fake. It's phoney. It's cheesy.

"I think people are really seeing her for what she is. I think she should come out and actually apologise for what she's done to poor Kate, and maybe not be so insensitive."
