Though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle claimed they wanted to live a more private life now that they've stepped down from the royal family, their actions say otherwise — and former royal aide Dickie Arbiter couldn't help but call them out on it.
"They left this country because they wanted privacy. They wanted away from the publicity," the Queen's old spokesperson noted to The Sun. "And since they left this country, the U.K., they’ve done nothing but seek publicity."
Arbiter is referring to the pair's recent interviews, which started with their March sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, where they stated that they were mistreated by the royal institution. The duo also admitted that one of the reasons behind their move to America was to escape the incessant U.K. paparazzi and press.
After the CBS special, Harry appeared on comedian Dax Shepard's podcast, where he shaded the family's parenting skills and compared life as a royal to "living in a zoo."
The father-of-two then spoke candidly about his mental health struggles in an Apple TV+ documentary, where he suggested that his troubles stemmed from his "upbringing."
Harry also stepped into the spotlight when he hosted Global Citizen's VAX LIVE: A Concert to Reunite the World. While Meghan couldn't attend in-person due to her pregnancy, she did record a video message.
Meanwhile, the actress just released her first children's book, The Bench.
Their multitude of public gigs is what's getting under Arbiter's skin. However, he pointed out that the duo will likely disappear for a while since Meghan just gave birth to their daughter, Lilibet Diana, on June 4.
"Now they are saying Harry is taking five months paternity leave and hopefully he will stay quiet in those five months," the former royal aide said. "Quite frankly, to put it simply they need to put up or shut up."
