Duchess Meghan is criticized for imitating a British accent.
Duchess Meghan, 40, has had to endure criticism time and time again, including on the latest episode of her Spotify podcast ‘Archetypes’. The trigger was a single word spoken by an American with a British accent. This upset some listeners.
British actress and activist Jameela Jamil (36) was Meghan’s guest. She greeted the Duchess of Sussex by saying: “Are you alright honey? Hello.” (to Dt. “Are you okay babe? Hello”) Prince Harry’s wife, 38, then imitated a British accent, turning “Hello” into “Ello.”
Twitter users are blaming Meghan
It is disabled for some Twitter users. “Are you making fun of the British accent now? Please Meghan shut up,” complains a user who clearly sees the impersonation as an attack on the British. Another poked fun at her, calling her pronunciation “really pathetic”, while another wrote: “She’s so fake.”
Four years ago on a trip with Queen Elizabeth II. († 96), who died in September, Meghan, who once wanted to gain British citizenship, is said to have tried to speak with a British accent. A CNN reporter noted at the time: “Strictly speaking, it doesn’t sound very British to a Brit – yet. But he’s on his way there.” And further: “I think it’s obvious that he speaks more slowly and emphasizes more precisely – as all members of the royal family do, so that people can understand them.
Girlfriend defends Meghan
Her friend Jameela Jamil also knows that Meghan has to put up with a lot of hate. He doesn’t understand it and now he’s resisting it. He describes the Duchess of Sussex as “such a kind and civilized woman”. The actress told Jamil on the podcast, “It’s unbelievable how much shit you have to put up with, Meghan.” Jamil shouldn’t like that a podcast episode with her as a guest has set off another wave of criticism.
