Royal Pair Faces Hollywood’s Harshest Criticism Yet: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Under Fire


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry: Nominated as Hollywood’s ‘Biggest Losers’ of 2023

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been nominated “Hollywood’s Biggest Losers” of the year by The Hollywood Reporter. The couple, who left their royal duties in 2020, were taken to task by the publication, which claims that “scorn and mockery” towards the couple hit an all-time high this year, leading to an unbecoming Hollywood status for Harry and Meghan.

The Hollywood Reporter’s List

The Hollywood Reporter revealed their list of “The Biggest Hollywood Winners and Losers of 2023,” providing a comprehensive look at a year when women dominated and some stars didn’t cut. In a list with no particular order, the publication shared winners and losers and their specific reasons for falling into their respective categories, as per the article’s author.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Nominations

The Hollywood Reporter named Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as one of Hollywood’s “Biggest Losers” of 2023. The publication listed various reasons prompting this not-so-flattering category, highlighting the couple’s transition from royal life to cashing in their celebrity status in the States, which was met with backlash in forms of criticism and mockery as reported by the publication.

Furthermore, The Hollywood Reporter mentioned that the couple faced severe criticism after releasing content including a Netflix documentary and biography, which were perceived as unwelcome and pretentious by the public. The couple’s ventures into new media platforms like Spotify were also followed by harsh judgment, ultimately contributing to their Hollywood ‘loser’ status.

Hollywood’s Irony

Interestingly, Meghan Markle’s loss was grouped in the same passage as the female power duo of 2023, Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig. Gerwig and Robbie experienced a massive win with the success of the movie Barbie, making history and becoming powerful icons in the male-dominated movie industry of 2023. This ironic pairing is noteworthy considering Meghan Markle’s prior significant efforts in advocating for feminist issues throughout her public life.

The Future for Meghan Markle

Despite the recent setback, Meghan Markle’s latest red carpet appearance hinted at exciting things ahead. At Variety’s Power of Women Event in Hollywood, Meghan expressed enthusiasm about future endeavors, leaving the audience with the promise of “exciting” things on the horizon. This indicates that Meghan is not disheartened by the recent criticism and remains focused on creating meaningful content that aligns with her personal and professional ethos. Her persistence demonstrates resilience and determination, suggesting that her influence and impact will continue to grow over time.

It’s evident that despite being labeled as a Hollywood ‘loser,’ Meghan Markle remains committed to empowering and uplifting women, striving to make a positive impact through her work and activities. This determination, coupled with the support of her husband Prince Harry, indicates that Meghan Markle is far from being counted out in the ever-evolving landscape of Hollywood and beyond.
