Prince Harry and Meghan Markle started their new life in the United States after they made the shocking decision to step down from their royal duties some years ago.

Ever since, they have been under the spotlight, something they claimed they tried to run away from as they felt immense pressure from the British media and tabloids. Over the years, they gave interviews, during which they spoke of their former lives and exposed details regarding the members of the Firm, released a documentary, and Harry published his all-tell memoir Spare, among the rest.

All this led to further deepening the disagreements between them and the rest of the royals, burning even more bridges.

In the US, Harry and Meghan tend to make friends, but they want to be seen around celebrities, as per Hollywood insider, broadcaster, comedian, and actor Tim Dillon.

“I know people in LA that know them, and all they want to do is hang out with celebrities. I was at a celebrity party the other night talking to somebody about this, and they go, ‘these people are just… it’s constant with them,’” Dillon said on the “They Come and Go” episode of his podcast, The Tim Dillon Show, as reported by the Daily Mail.

“She was texting the person I was with there – and, ‘no, you can’t come’. I shouldn’t have even been there. But the point is they just won’t stop, these two. They are just like moths to the flame trying to hang out… They’re like low-grade reality stars that are trying to attach to anything.”

Further, Dillon claimed that a friend of his showed him a text message from Meghan in which she begged to people to ‘hang out.’

“She is trying to get places. It’s sad. A lot of it isn’t working, and they are rolling their eyes to me, and they’re going LOL, and we are all having a good laugh about this because they’re just a bunch of goons, and no one cares.”

The comedian added, “Now listen, at the end of the day, I respect the hustle, I get what she’s trying to do, I get what they are trying to do, but it didn’t work, right? A lot of people at this party were like, ‘Hey man, you know, we text her back, we tried to be nice, she’s the Duchess, but we’ve had enough, we’ve had enough of her.”

It seems like the Sussexes have a hard time meeting new people. In the past, they were said to be close to David and Victoria Beckham and Gorge and Amal Clooney, but that’s not longer the case, sources claim.

According to a source speaking with Closer, the Sussexes are struggling with many of their famous friends distancing themselves. For instance, David Beckham was reportedly “absolutely furious” after Harry and Meghan allegedly accused him of leaking stories, with one report suggesting their friendship is irreparably broken.

“Their A-list friends that are supportive are few and far between. Any chance they had of mending fences with the Beckhams has been squashed by the royals; Tom Cruise has clearly chosen to side with the royals, George and Amal Clooney have all but dumped them too, and even Elton John has been too busy to give them a whole lot of attention,” the source told Closer.

Recently, Prince William brought his son, Prince George, and his daughter, Princess Charlotte, to a Taylor Swift concert after which the superstar posed for a photo with the trio and later published it. Allegedly, the photo angered Meghan.

According to insiders, “the Sussexes believe this is another attempt from William of showing Harry and Meghan they are firmly outsiders when it comes to the Royal family, despite Harry’s attempts to get back in touch with The Firm.”

Recently, Harry received the Pat Tillman Award for Service at the 2024 ESPY Awards.

However, the mother of the US soldier killed in Afghanistan in whose honor the award is named criticized Harry for receiving it in the first place.

“I am shocked as to why they would select such a controversial and divisive individual to receive the award. Some recipients are far more fitting. There are individuals working in the veteran community that are doing tremendous things to assist veterans,” she told the Daily Mail.

“These individuals do not have the money, resources, connections or privilege that Prince Harry has. I feel that those types of individuals should be recognised.”

A spokesman for ESPY answered, ‘”While we understand not everyone will agree with all honourees selected for any award, The Invictus Games Foundation does incredible work, and ESPN believes this is a cause worth celebrating.”

A royal expert claims that “collecting trophies” is a part of the Sussexes’ “game.”

Royal expert Kinsey Schofield appeared on Talk TV, stating that “the public see through” what the Sussexes are trying to accomplish.

“I see Prince Harry and Meghan Markle accepting more trophies for awards that I don’t understand what they’re for, than this life of service that they promised us. How many awards did Meghan accept for her podcast that was cancelled and slammed by her own network?” Schofield said as per Express.

She added: “This is all a game to them [Harry and Meghan]. I guess they’re trying to buy the public’s respect, they’re trying to buy good PR through networking and creating these opportunities to collect trophies for their mantle, but I think the public sees through these individuals.”
