Howard Stern Finds It “Painful” To Watch Harry & Meghan’s Netflix Docuseries: “It’s Like The Kardashians, Except Boring”

The radio host said the royal couple comes off as “whiny b****es” on the show.

Howard Stern has had it with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Speaking on his Sirius XM Show on Monday (Dec 12), the radio host said he had trouble sitting through the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan.

“It’s been painful,” Stern said of the series that chronicles the couple’s feud with the royal family and the media, per Mediaite.  “I don’t — I wouldn’t stay with it, but my wife wants to watch it, so, you know, we have shows we watch, but they come off like such whiny bitches. I gotta tell you man, I just don’t get it.”

Okay, the part that Stern did get was where Harry talked about how his mother, Diana, was treated by the royalty.

“I get Prince Harry being pissed off at the monarchy for his mother,” Stern said. “They treated her like s***…She really was like, just Prince Charles was such a f***ing c*** to Lady Diana.”

He added, “I feel bad for Prince Harry losing his mother and all that. So you got my empathy there. But Jesus Christ, when those two start whining about ‘wah wah wah, and they don’t like me’ and she wants to be beloved in this country…it’s just very weird to watch two people who keep screaming, ‘We wanted our privacy, we wanted the press to leave us alone.’ And then what is their special that they put out on Netflix — showing you them and their kids and their life. It’s like the Kardashians except boring. You know what I mean?”

Stern also found the series just as pointless. “Where do you go with this? Is this your career…talking about how humiliated you were being part of, I don’t know, living in a castle — and it’s hard to relate to,” he said. “It’s like, it looks pretty terrific to me. If it was me, I never had to worry about money and never had to worry about work.”

In his show, Stern predicted that Harry will split from Meghan one day. “I think he’s eventually not gonna dig her," he said. 

Netflix dropped the first three episodes of Harry & Meghan on Dec 8, with three more set to launch on Dec 15. The show debuted with a total of 81.55 million hours watched in its first week, the company said in a press release Tuesday, making it the highest viewing time of any documentary to launch on the streaming service in its premiere week.
