Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been mocked in a recent SNL sketch. Comedian Michael Che joked that Meghan was being offered “$19 an hour” to attend the Coronation, with a picture of Meghan as a maid depicted in a maid’s outfit shown on the screen behind him. A Reddit user also shared the clip and said: “YA’LL! Hollywood is laughing at them.”

Comedian Chris Rock has also lampooned the Duchess and her husband in his recent Netflix special. He joked about Meghan’s claims an unknown royal had “concerns” about “how dark” their son Archie might be when he was born. Rock said: “In-law sh*t.”

He added: “That’s not racist. Because even black people want to know how brown the baby’s going to be.”

Trevor Noah made a joke about Prince Harry’s “frost bitten penis” while hosting the Grammy Awards, and even James Cordon – who welcomed Harry on his show and went to his wedding – has joked about the revelations from the royal’s autobiography Spare.

A former friend of Meghan Markle has told Express she and Prince Harry have now become “low hanging fruit for Hollywood comedians”.

Nick Ede, who met Meghan Markle when he asked her to co-host the Global Gift Giving Gala in 2013. The pair remained friends for a number of years before “she had to cull her friends”.

He said: “I don’t think they would have thought that people like Trevor Noah, for instance, would joke about them at the Grammys and that it would be humiliating.

“James Corden’s had Harry on his bus and now suddenly he’s joking about them. I think there was a massive miscalculation there from them.”

Nick went on: “Humour is always about the zeitgeist of what’s going on. It’s about what’s happening now, so they’re the sort of low hanging fruit.”

He added that Meghan and Harry’s behaviour was “going to start to grate on people”.

Nick said: “I do think that with the documentary, and the podcast, and the book, that it’s become as a lot of people say a pity party. And when you really look at it and actually look into their world, it’s difficult when we see what’s going on in the world with a huge economic crisis and wars etc, to kind sympathise anymore.

“The first interview (with Oprah) really did open up people’s eyes to a lot and I think it was really significant.

“But they keep saying, ‘here’s my life. It’s terrible. And we’re here to educate you guys. To be honest, I think that is going to start to grate on people.”
