LA is ‘not a place’ for Harry, suggests ex-Vanity Fair editor who says Prince’s military past and the couple’s taste for ‘lecturing’ people while enjoying a luxury lifestyle count against them
- Graydon Carter, 71, says the Prince’s move to LA has saddened the British people
- He says it is hard for them to lecture people when they live in a 14-bed mansion
- In comparison he says that Kate and William do things ‘almost to perfection’
The former editor of Vanity Fair has branded Harry and Meghan’s move to LA a ‘terrible mistake’ because the Prince doesn’t fit in there.
Graydon Carter ran the publication when Meghan Markle announced in an interview with the glossy magazine that her and Harry were ‘two people who are really happy and in love’.
In an interview with The Telegraph the Canadian journalist, 71, said Harry would be crazy not to return to the UK, adding: ‘Los Angeles is not a place for people who don’t have a part in the professional firmament.
‘Meghan was on a middling TV show that a lot of people didn’t see, and as for Harry: being a soldier and liking football are just not saleable talents out there. You can get it right if you stay on message in LA’.
The former editor-in-chief also said that their move to Beverly Hills has saddened the British people and that ‘it doesn’t make a lot of sense to them’.
He added that it is hard for the couple to lecture people about the state of the planet when they’re ‘flying in private planes, living in a 14-bedroom Beverly Hills mansion and living off the state’.

He also admitted that in 2017 when a member of his magazine team suggested trying to get Meghan for the cover story he didn’t know who she was.
He added that the issue didn’t sell very well given that ‘it hadn’t settled in people’s minds yet that this woman was going to marry an English prince’.
In the interview he said: ‘British people are clearly just saddened that this star, in their eyes – and I mean Harry, not Meghan – has left the country and gone his own way. It doesn’t make sense to a lot of them.’

In comparison to the now LA-based royal couple, he said that Kate and William do ‘things almost to perfection’.
He also had advice for other royals including Prince Andrew, saying he should ‘lock himself in a room and stay there and never say another word to anybody ever again’ except if he is testifying in a New York court room.
It comes as it has been revealed that Harry and Meghan were frustrated that William and Kate got all the best official roles and felt ‘cut adrift’ from the Royal Family and ‘viper’ courtiers.

The sensational new Finding Freedom biography claims the couple were upset they had to take a ‘backseat’ to other family members such as Prince William and Prince Charles who were given priority for their own projects.
It comes as the sensational new Finding Freedom biography is released
The biography is written by journalists Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, who are fans of the couple and have set out to ‘correct the record’ and shift the spotlight on to their charitable ventures.
The Sussexes say they did not contribute to the book, but Scobie and Durand’s account is based on extensive insight from friends of the couple.
Their account claims that Meghan and Harry battled against courtiers who feared they would become more popular than the Royal family itself and singles out William and Kate for criticism over their alleged freezing out of the couple.
Scobie has also hinted at racism within the Royal ranks, saying ‘there are individuals who may like to take a look at how they view the world’. – and the book claims the couple were ‘propelling the monarchy to new heights around the world’.
In a tearful remark to a friend, the Duchess of Sussex claimed she gave up her ‘entire life for this family’ and then had no choice but to quit – but adds she ‘couldn’t imagine wanting to set foot in anything royal again’ after Megxit.
It also describes how Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, attempted to go straight to the Queen, 94, to settle Megxit after flying in from Christmas in Canada.
