Meghan Markle has launched a campaign for her 40th birthday, but not everyone is convinced, with This Morning’s Matthew Wright branding it ‘cringey’.
The Duchess of Sussex is celebrating her 40th by asking 40 of her friends to take 40 minutes to mentor women going back into the workplace after Covid-19.
While she said she agrees with the principle, Beverley Turner, who appeared on the show to chat to Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, declared there was ‘too much Meghan Markle’ in the video, saying she would expect someone who’s turning 40 to have more wisdom.
‘She’s just not very funny,’ she added.
Matthew was a little more generous, saying Meghan’s got her message across.
‘It is kind of naff, the comedy is a bit cringey but the message she’s getting out there…is a really important one,’ he said.
However, many This Morning viewers weren’t impressed with the comments, sticking up for the Duchess.
‘There’s a lot of Meghan Markle in this” in a segment about Meghan Markle’s 40th birthday,’ one pointed out.
‘Does it really need to be funny to get out a good message in mentoring and helping women? Bored of women not hyping each other up,’ another said.
One more added: ‘Obviously the video she put out wasn’t meant to be taken seriously, why they analysing every second of it?’.
