James Blunt Talks Criticism Of Friends Prince Harry And Meghan Markle: ‘The Vitriol Seems Like Bullying To Me’

James Blunt spoke about the criticism his friend Prince Harry has been receiving during an appearance on Wednesday’s “Good Morning Britain”.

Blunt, who attended Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding last May, said of the pair: “What I think I can see is that they seem to be on the cover of the newspapers a lot and it seems to be vitriolic quite a lot of the time.

“He’s a very nice man, a really phenomenal soldier, who does a lot of work for other people, for charities, for veterans, for Sentebale charity, for children in Africa, and I think under great scrutiny they seem to try a lot for other people.

“So the vitriol seems a bit like leaning on bullying to me.”

Blunt’s comments come after both Harry and Meghan spoke about dealing with criticism from the media during their documentary “Harry & Meghan: An African Journey”, which aired in the U.K. over the weekend.

Meghan also admitted it has been “challenging” being the target of media scrutiny, especially while she was pregnant with baby Archie.
