With excerpts from Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir “Spare” circulating the internet, news outlets and daytime talk shows have already started to analyze the Duke of Sussex’s shocking claims with a fine tooth comb. During a recent episode of “The View,” Joy Behar compared the royal family’s constant attacks on Meghan Markle to that of musician and peace activist Yoko Ono, who was famously married to John Lennon. “It seems like everyone in the royal family treats Meghan like Yoko Ono,” she said (via Decider). For those unaware, the acclaimed performance artist was subjected to hateful abuse during her marriage to Lennon, with some even calling her a “dragon lady,” per NBC News.
“Yoko Ono allegedly broke up The Beatles, and she became the pariah of that generation. It’s almost the same thing here,” Behar continued. “I mean, why would [Prince] William — if this is all true — why would William be so upset with Meghan and go after her to her husband?” Other members of the panel echoed similar sentiments, with Ana Navarro describing the public deterioration of the family’s relationship as “incredibly painful.”
While all sides of the Windsor clan have kept quiet regarding the controversial leak, royal expert Katie Nicholl revealed that Prince William and King Charles III are bracing themselves for “further damaging revelations” in the upcoming memoir, per Vanity Fair. “The fact that Harry has written about private family moments … will be upsetting for the royals,” she added.
