Whoopi Goldberg didn't seem convinced about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's description of a "near catastrophic" car chase they experienced. During an episode of The View, Goldberg joked about the incident. She remarked, "If it was possible to have car chases in New York, we'd all make it to the theater on time." The host expressed doubt that the incident reached the level of severity portrayed by their spokesperson. Her co-host Joy Behar chimed in, pointing out that even ambulances aren't able to get through traffic in New York.
TV host Megyn Kelly also weighed in on the incident during her SiriusXM show. She suggested that Harry and Meghan were exaggerating the situation to garner attention. Bethenny Frankel expressed skepticism as well, referring to the couple as "babies who want attention." However, she acknowledged that the situation sounded scary. "Perhaps this was the worst car chase since Princess Diana, but people have a hard time believing it," Frenkel said. "It's a story that keeps being pushed." She then encouraged the couple to take precautions to avoid such circumstances in the future.
Harry and Meghan's Spokesperson Paints A Very Dramatic Picture
Harry and Meghan's spokesperson released a lengthy statement about the alleged incident. "This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians, and two NYPD officers," the spokesperson said. "While being a public figure comes with a level of interest from the public, it should never come at the cost of anyone's safety. Dissemination of these images, given the ways in which they were obtained, encourages a highly intrusive practice that is dangerous to all involved."
Harry and Meghan have demanded that the agency that employs the paparazzi members involved hand over the footage. However, they have refused. "In America, as I'm sure you know, property belongs to the owner of it. Third parties cannot just demand it be given to them, as perhaps Kings can do," said the agency's lawyer. "You should sit down with your client and advise them that his English rules of royal prerogative to demand that the citizenry hand over their property to the Crown were rejected by this country long ago. We stand by our founding fathers." It is certainly a dramatic statement, but it is also no doubt effective. What do you think of the situation? Is the couple exaggerating? Sound off in the comments!
