Gyles Brandreth says Meghan’s swagger protest is ‘mockery’

Royal author Gyles Brandreth called the Duchess of Sussex’s display of humility in front of the Queen “ridiculous” and “disgraceful”.

His writer and broadcaster told Vanessa Feltz’s Drivetime show on TalkTV: “Nobody bowed to the Queen like that, and no one advised her to do so either.”

In the Netflix documentary of the Sussexes, Meghan, who was sitting on the sofa as the Duke of Sussex stood beside her, spread her arms wide and lowered her head as she recounted how she tried to greet the monarch too how they tried when they first met. meet.

Brandreth, a friend of the royal family, said the King doesn’t seem to watch documentaries because he doesn’t spend much time watching television, but that the show is “more interesting” than “explosive”.

He said of bowing: “It’s a shame, because it’s mocking – and nobody bows to the Queen like that, and no one can advise her to do it that way.”

He added of Harry: “He will know that the bow, as it were understood, is a short nod and that the kneeling is to show respect for the sovereign, and in the case of The Queen – a woman in her 90s who has truly earned respect throughout her life of service, and that’s all.

“Doing this kind of mockery is uncomfortable, but it’s a cultural difference. It’s like you would bow if you were playing Snow White.”

Brandreth said of the series that the trailer is more interesting than the entire show so far.

“If you look at the long history, you find it interesting, but you don’t find it disturbing. For example, I don’t think the King will see it,” he said.

“He doesn’t watch TV much. I don’t think he will learn much except about his son’s unhappiness in this situation. We can all learn lessons about how we run things.” Gyles Brandreth says Meghan’s swagger protest is ‘mockery’
