US radio host Howard Stern has slammed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle over their new Netflix docuseries – branding them ‘whiny b*****s’.
The first three episodes of the couple’s series arrived on the platform last week and features revelations about everything from their first date, Princess Diana and supposed racism in the UK.
Speaking to co-host Robin Quivers on his radio show on Sirius XM, Stern criticizes the pair saying the show is ‘very weird’ for two people who have historically plead for privacy.
The couple, who stepped away as senior royals but have retained their titles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex, issued a statement arguing ‘privacy’ was not the reason they quit the Royal family.
Stern questioned the motivation behind the series, which he described as ‘like the Kardashians except boring’.

‘It’s been painful. I wouldn’t stay with it, but my wife wants to watch it, you know, we have shows [that] we watch, but they come off like such whiny b*****s. I gotta tell you man, I just don’t get it,’ he said.
Stern began the segment by sympathizing with Prince Harry, who lost his mother Princess Diana in a horrific Paris car crash August 1997.
‘I get Prince Harry being pissed off at the monarchy for his mother,’ he said.
‘They treated her like s**t, she really was, that Prince Charles was such a fucking c**t to Lady Diana.’ ‘That’s your father,’ Quivers said regarding Prince Harry.
‘There was nothing real about that relationship from beginning to end.’
Stern went on to speak of what he called the hypocrisy of the docuseries, which is set to release a further three episodes on Thursday.
‘I feel bad for Prince Harry losing his mother and all that,’ Stern said. ‘So, you got my empathy there.
‘But Jesus Christ, when those two start whining about ‘wah, wah, wah, and they don’t like me’ and she wants to be beloved in this country, man oh man.
‘It’s just very weird to watch two people who keep screaming, ‘we wanted our privacy, we wanted the press to leave us alone’ and then their special on Netflix.
‘Showing them and their kids and their life. It’s like the Kardashians except boring. You know what I mean?’

As the pair continued to discuss the complexities of the royal couple’s situation Stern remarked, ‘I don’t know. I found it troubling.’
‘How many times can you sell the same story?’ Quivers asks. ‘Like, maybe they can make a cartoon out of it,’ Stern suggested.
Stern dived into how luxurious the couple’s life was back in England and said he didn’t understand the motivation.
‘Where do you go with this? Is this your career? Talking about how humiliated you were being part of, I don’t know, living in a castle – it’s hard to relate to,’ Stern said.
‘It’s like, it looks pretty terrific to me. If it was me [and] I never had to worry about money and never had to worry about work.
‘First of all, that estate, when you see those palaces and you see the grounds, I could live my whole life in that palace, in the grounds.
‘I live in my house [that] I haven’t left in three years. It doesn’t seem like [a] prison to me. Then you got butlers and cars and food and — f**k you!’
In a trailer detailing the next three episodes of the docuseries Markle is heard ramping up her war on the Royal Family.
In the final three episodes, the Duchess of Sussex said stories would be leaked or made up about her or Harry to ensure negative press about other royals would ‘go away.’

In the teaser Markle claims there was a conspiracy to attack her while her British privacy lawyer Jenny Afia described it as a ‘war against Meghan’ from within Buckingham Palace ‘to suit other people’s agendas’.
Afia insists she has seen the evidence before Markle’s friend Lucy Fraser, a British former PR manager who was a mystery figure until a week ago, declares: ‘Meg became this scapegoat for the Palace’.
Markle also suggested she was made a scapegoat, adding: ‘You would see it play out. A story about someone in the family would pop up for a minute, and they’d go: ‘We’ve got to make that go away.’
Today’s 65-second trailer does not feature Prince Harry, who has already accused unnamed shadowy figures of lying about him and his wife to protect his brother Prince William.
He also talked of ‘institutional gaslighting’ – believed to be an attack on his own family and their staff.
Royal experts predict the Netflix series will destroy Harry’s relationship with William, who will view it as disloyalty.
But critics have accused the couple of using Netflix to launch a disinformation campaign against the Royal Family and the British press.
There are growing calls to see the evidence for these highly damaging claims with one royal source declaring: ‘No one is taking lessons in honesty from them.’
The first three episodes of Harry & Meghan – part of the Sussex’s’ multi-million-dollar deal with Netflix – were streamed last week.
The initial tranche covered the couple’s courtship and romance, but many were left deeply unhappy about the program’s full-on assault on the late Queen’s Commonwealth legacy, with some saying it seemed as if the couple want to ‘bring down the monarchy.’
Harry also let rip with a string of sly digs at his family, particularly his father and brother, including the suggestion that they had married not for love but to a woman who fit ‘the mold.’
Both Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace declined to comment.
It is understood that the royal households intend to wait until the entire series has aired before they decide whether to respond to some of the couple’s more hurtful or damaging claims.
