In news that will shock nobody who pays attention to the monarchy, royal experts are far from experts. Rather, most of these senior citizens are simply diehard monarchists who love to chat with the media. Some people play bingo… some people fabricate nonsense for tabloids. Now, two enterprising YouTubers have exposed royal experts for the frauds they are by tricking them into lying about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming Oprah interview.
Josh Pieters and Archie Manners are a pair of YouTubers who you might remember from when they pranked a far-right commentator into accepting a bogus, suggestively titled award.
Now, the pair have tricked a number of royal experts into talking about the upcoming Oprah interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry—well before it actually airs. The experts who couldn’t wait for their opportunity to talk about this interview, despite the fact they absolutely could not have watched the interview, include: the Queen’s former press secretary, the editor of Majesty magazine and a royal commentator from CNN.
Truly, subject matter experts.

Reactions to the video have pointed out the hypocrisy of the experts accusing Meghan of lying while telling bald-faced lies themselves.
“This video scares me, because the toss these so-called experts spewed sounds like at least 80% of the filler crap you see in daytime news reporting,” commented one person. “It makes me wonder how many “pre-emptive interviews” we have on telly. It’s clearly standard practice based on how comfortable these people were to accept this interview, and as someone working at an entry-level in the media I genuinely had no idea. Thank you for another amazing video guys!”
“They’re literally all just grifters making money at the expense of people’s mental health,” wrote another.
