Why did New York Magazine include The Sussex Couple In The ‘Nepo Babies’ List?
Firstly, Prince Harry is the son of the Late Princess Diana and King Charles III, and secondly, because of his celebrity wife, who allegedly made her way with her dad, Thomas Markle’s help. As per the report, the Duchess of Sussex belongs to the “well-connected” because her father, Thomas Markle, worked as a lighting director in Hollywood and helped her with various Hollywood sets.
As a child, Meghan Markle’s Friday treat was watching Thomas work as a lighting technician at ABC Studios in Los Angeles, and she even appeared as an extra on the hit show Married… With Children.
Multimedia Editor of Vulture, Anne Victoria Clark, asked whether there was “anything more charming than the nepo baby who gave it all up for the woman he loves.”
She said Prince Harry is an “actual duke who stepped away from his dukedom in favor of a path of most resistance while attacking the Royal Family.”
The editor concluded that even though the Sussexes have quit royal duties, Harry is “still extremely wealthy and privileged,” but adds sarcastically that “his constant sniping at his family fuels our slow progress towards the socialist utopia promised in Star Trek.”
Nevertheless, there is a problem with the term ‘nepo baby‘ in that it discredits the hard work and talent that has led to the success of many celebrity children; as it implies, they are there due to who they are rather than their ability.
