Prince Harry, Meghan Markle’s desire to paint Britain as ‘land of vile snobs’ ignites fear: report

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to follow through with explosive tell-all Oprah interview has caused experts to break into fear over potential repercussions over the “land of vile snobs” England.

This claim was made by royal historian Dominic Green. In his Telegraph piece titled, Oprah interview will confirm America's suspicion that Britain is a land of vile snobs, he claims, "Class snobbery has always been an English vice.”

"Now that boarding schools run background checks on their staff, it might be one of the last things that reassure the English that they're still English. And of course, Americans have a class system too.”

"They live in a hierarchy of hard cash, where it's natural to complain about the media violating your privacy while you franchise your infant son as a human podcast."

"But when Americans talk about snobbery, they don't mean the Old World snobbery about when you put the milk in your tea or whether, like Michelle Obama, you lay hands on the Queen."

"They mean the real New World snobbery: the snobbery of race, and the social legacies of slavery. Monday’s proceedings are going to trash Britain’s image in American eyes.”
