For months, the world has been captivated by the narrative surrounding Princess Catherine’s health and her courageous battle with cancer.

Prior to Catherine’s emotional revelation, the Wales’ had deliberately shielded their young family from the public eye, keeping the world unaware of the Princess’ health struggles.

Even Harry and Meghan found themselves among those left in the dark until Catherine bravely shared her diagnosis, further highlighting their distance from the inner workings of the Royal Family.

Speaking to GB America, Daily Mail columnist Maureen Callahan said, “What’s true, that we know, is that Harry and Meghan are now in a complete informational blackout. They have no idea what is going on with the health of Kate.”

Callahan added that the pair also have no insights into King Charles III’s health indicating the Sussex’s are out on a limb.

“The only real thing that Meghan Markle and her husband have to merchandise is their connection to the Royal Family, it really is the singular point of interest for either of these people,” she said.

Callahan and her host, Nana Akua, were commenting on the postponement of Meghan’s podcast, Archetypes.

While Archetypes is on hold, the Duchess’ cooking show, American Riviera Orchard, is going ahead as the Royal Family navigate their health challenges.

“At the same time, she and Netflix believe when better than now to announce that she’s filming her new cooking show,” Callahan said.

“When is better than now for Meghan to launch her ridiculously, terribly, pretentiously named American Riviera Orchard.”

Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry have been slammed recently for the insensitive timing of the launch of the Netflix cooking show and Harry’s polo documentary. 

Again with GBN America, royal commentator Lizzy Cundy did not mince her words on the matter saying, “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,” Cundy added.

“They never read the room do they? They’re so into themselves they can’t see the wood for the trees!”

Despite these criticisms, it is believed that Meghan is unlikely to relent on her strong feelings towards the Royal Family.

Royal author Tom Quinn speaking exclusively to The Mirror said, “Harry would like a reconciliation, but supports his wife completely and until she feels that the Royal family have been sufficiently nice to her – and grovelingly apologised for the past – it’s not going to happen.”

While Harry may be inclined towards reconciliation, his allegiance to Meghan seems unwavering, with her grievances serving as a barrier to any meaningful reconnection.
