Nigel Farage has weighed in on the Harry and Meghan discourse, branding them "despicable" for hinting that Brexit contributed to racism she experienced.
While neither of them mentioned the word "Brexit" in their Netflix series which was released yesterday, Prince Harry said the couple started dating in 2016 (when the referendum took place) and hit out at news articles about Markle that had “racist undertones” as well as “outright racism”.
At one point, the Duke said the series is not “just about our story”, adding: “This has always been much bigger than us" while footage appears on screen showing a Brexit protest followed by Boris Johnson vowing to “take back control of this country”.
And in one episode, academic David Olusoga said that the couple’s “fairy tale” was “embedding itself in a nation that is having a pretty toxic debate about the European Union”.
It is fair to say all this really irked Farage who took to Twitter to rant about the show.
