Megyn Kelly has mentioned Megan Markle in several episodes of The Megyn Kelly Show. According to The New York Post, in November 2022, Megyn Kelly said that she doesn’t think that Meghan Markle needs to keep saying that Prince Harry is “my husband.” Kelly explained, “There seems to be no limit on their appetite for ripping on the royals to whom they owe all of their fame and literally most of their fortune.”

In May 2023, according to The Daily Mail, Kelly commented on Markle not attending King Charles III’s coronation. She said, ‘I’m glad she’s [Markle] not going. Who wants to sit and look at her try to pretend like she’s there in any way supportive of the royal family? She hates them, despite the fact that they made her a megastar.”

Kelly never sounds pleased when she brings up Markle. However, this seems to be one-sided. Markle doesn’t seem to have responded to what the podcast host said about her.

According to Aceshowbiz.com, Kelly explained in August 2023, “It’s not personal. I don’t think she’s evil. I just hate what she represents. I can’t stand her, for all sorts of reasons. Looking at herself, and encouraging young girls in America and around the world to look at themselves and have other people look at them instead of listen to them. Because when you listen for 20 seconds, you’re revolted at the banal emptiness that is the shell of that woman.”

Kim Kardashian is aware that Megyn Kelly has said some negative things about her in the past. In 2015, Kelly insulted Kim in an interview with Variety and said young girls will look at Kim and think they need plastic surgery.

In 2022, Peter Dinklage was interviewed on the WTF podcast hosted by Marc Maron. The conversation turned to the live adaptation of Snow White. The actor explained that referring to “the seven dwarfs” is insulting.

He said, “Literally no offense to anything, but I was sort of taken aback. They were very proud to cast a Latino actress as Snow White, but you’re still telling the story of ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.’ Take a step back and look at what you’re doing there. It makes no sense to me.”
