Nicholls mentioned that Nicholls and the couple will be discussing Climate Change, an issue on which both parties have commented before. “Harry is probably going to be pretty impressive on that front,” she said, giving the couple’s statements on the COVID-19 pandemic as an example of what we might see in their UN address.
“Whether they like him or not, over there in America they do tend to listen to him,”She nodded. Holmes continued to criticize Duchess and Duke of Sussex, saying “My problem with this is, fine if he’s got a message on climate change, on poverty or goodness knows what.”
“Or is he there as a showpiece, or profile, or shining a spotlight on the Archewell Foundation? He’s either in favor of all these things or he’s there as a business,”The anchor closed the newscast.
Holmes’ History Of Criticizing The Couple
Holmes has not slammed Harry this time around. Before the couple’s appearance at the queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, He laughedIf they were to show up, then the rest of the royals should “just throw him over the balcony and her [Meghan] with him.”
Holmes has also come under fire for his criticisms of Markle in the past, so it’s no surprise the news anchor is criticizing the couple before they’ve even given their speech. It’s unknown what exactly they will touch on while discussing climate change, but the couple have become outspoken voices in the fight for a greener world and will most likely give an impressive speech.
