Prince Harry and Meghan grab us by throat and hold our attention, says expert

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been given an odd back-handed compliment by a royal author after a rise in recent media attention.

Over the last month or so, the pair have made headline news for appearances at award ceremonies, podcast contract cancellations and for being evicted from a royal cottage.

And while rumours have been ramping up about their future together – and their separate careers – a royal expert has claimed that the pair know how to “grab” the public “by the throat”.

Speaking to Fox News Digital, royal author Christopher Anderson praised the couple for their Hollywood Critics Association awards nomination for the six-part Harry and Meghan Netflix docuseries.

He said: “This nomination is as much a nod to the series' highly-respected director Liz Garbus as it is to the Sussexes, who made it very clear they had given Garbus free rein to tell their story.

“Meghan was careful to stress that the end result was not exactly the way they would have told it, which I think was a very clever way of distancing themselves from the project if people wound up not liking it.

“But look, you've got to hand it to Harry and Meghan – they know how to grab us by the throat and hold our attention, and in Hollywood that's pretty much all that counts.

“But if the critics who hand out these awards are going to be honest with themselves, they'll see that the series was a whiny exercise in self-indulgence.”
