Among those who slammed Meghan Markle publicly following her interview with Oprah Winfrey is controversial Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Carlson is convinced that the Duchess of Sussex is only trying to depict herself as the victim, but is in fact a “manipulative opportunist” and a “narcissist.” On his show Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday, he made sure he spoke openly on how he feels regarding Meghan’s words and brought the attention to the story about the argument between Meghan and Kate which apparently took place just before the wedding.

“Here’s this royal person, one of the most famous and fawned over people in the world telling Oprah that she was incredibly wounded because she got into some sort of petty argument about dresses with her sister-in-law at her wedding three years ago. So stop the presses,” the host said before he invoked one of the darkest days in the American history.
“She and her sister-in-law had a tiff about clothes. That’s never happened before. She thinks this is important enough to bring up in a television interview. It was her 9/11. So of course she considers it newsworthy. OK, so she’s a narcissist.”
Speaking to Oprah, Meghan raised her concerns over the Royal family choosing to lie in order to protect other members, “but they weren’t willing to tell the truth to protect me and my husband,” referring to the media headlines that she made Kate cry, when just the opposite happened, according to the former Suit actress. The Palace did not try to correct those writings.

Carlson further explained how he felt Meghan didn’t have the right to feel oppressed after she became part of the Royal family.
“What she’s really saying is that despite her enormous wealth and fame, despite the fact she never has to cook her own dinner or drive her own car ever again as long as she lives … she is, and this is the headline here, she’s actually an oppressed victim. She may look powerful, but she’s powerless.”
