It’s safe to say Megyn Kelly doesn’t have a lot of respect for Meghan Markle. Apparently, it has nothing to do with the fact they spell their names differently.
Instead, Kelly called Markle a “B-list actress” and “social climber.” before referring to husband Prince Harry as “thin-skinned.” All of it took place during Kelly’s podcast interview with Tom Bower. Bower authored the best-selling book Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors.
“These two are as thin-skinned as they come when it comes to their public image, whether they matter what people write about them and whether they are adequately ‘protected’ by those around them in maintaining these pictures they think they have,” Kelly said of the Sussexes.

Bower referred to Markle as “tactile,” adding that she “chased a man in England” in 2013. This following her divorce from film producer Trevor Engelson.
Markle made a name for herself in the USA Network series Suits, marrying Harry in 2018. Two years later, they left the royal family. Per Bower, she always sought to be a celebrity, “but wants to control the narrative.”
He then laughed off the couple’s claims that the press treats them unfairly.
“Anyone who gets in her way is teased and attacked, and Harry has become hypersensitive and hates the media and yet seeks approval from the media by going on Netflix or Spotify or Apple TV,” Bower said. “The contradiction and the hypocrisy is enormous.”
As for Kelly, she can’t understand why a couple that seeks attention so much is upset when not all of that attention is favorable.
“Her whole thing is about image, so I can see why she’s so easily upset when it comes to bad press,” Kelly said of Markle.
