Kelly, who has often made it clear that she is not a fan of the royal ex-pats, laid out a series of things she believed that Harry and Meghan had done wrong — and for which they probably owed a few people apologies.

“Here’s just a couple, off the top of my head, all right?” Kelly began, clearly taking on that responsibility herself.
“Your wife’s a bully,” Kelly asserted, going on to cite reports from people who had worked closely with Markle and had said that she was emotionally abusive to staffers. A palace aide said that the then-Duchess of Sussex’s behavior was “more like emotional cruelty and manipulation, which I guess could also be called bullying.”
The reports were so pervasive that Buckingham Palace eventually opened an investigation into the allegations — but once the investigation was completed in June of 2022, the results were kept private. According to royal author Katie Nicholl, the main reason was that the Queen “didn’t want any more drama.”
“One of the other people that she apparently made cry was Princess Kate,” Kelly continued. “She told Oprah that Kate made her cry, but we now know from your own book, Harry, that it was Meghan calling Kate ‘a baby brain, it’s your baby brain’ after she gave birth to her third child. That has a tendency to make people not like you, when you have the nerve to comment on their hormones after they just had a baby when you barely know them.”
Kelly went on to call Markle “a brat,” saying that she had caused a scene when she didn’t get to have the tiara that she wanted, among other issues. She also addressed the fact that Markle had appeared to cut people out of her life — her own family members — after they supported her on her way to the top.
Kelly then redirected her attack to Harry, criticizing him for complaining about how he and Markle were covered in the press.
“Forget the lawsuits, though, it’s your whiny statements about the nasty press,” Kelly said, breaking into a fake tearful voice as she continued. “You don’t think George Clooney’s had negative things written about him? Tom Cruise never had negative things written about — he doesn’t use his speeches or his media appearances to whine about the mean media they say the things that aren’t true — we’re sick of it! Shut up about your negative press coverage.”
