The Carpetbagging Copycat

The Duchess of Sussex gets mocked on social media after “stealing” James Stunt’s ‘iconic dressing gown look’ to introduce her newly arrived son

Yet again ‘Murky Mucky’ just couldn’t help herself. Even on the day she introduced her child to the world, she just had to put her foot in the proverbial.

Aside from offending The Guardian’s Archie Bland by ‘hijacking’ his name for her kiddie – he penned a somewhat whacky diatribe in reply – the “thanking you all for the well wishes” (send her for English lessons urgently) newbie royal has made a mockery of herself by ghosting the outfit James Stunt wore for his first ever YouTube video for her, Prince Harry and plain old Mr Archie’s first media outing.

Archie Bland’s article about “Team Archie”

In an amusing post shared on her Instagram feed, The Steeple Times’ Claire Rubinstein, herself an ex-BBC employee (but not one as brazen as the now rather ludicrously sacked Danny Baker, a man who stupidly got a bit carried away with a picture of a little chimpanzee and then “got chucked under the bus” by nasty old Auntie on Thursday), put up an image of Stunt in his ‘iconic dressing gown look’ alongside one of the Duchess of Sussex in her pretty much identical baby introducing garb.


Rubinstein accompanied the post with the hashtags: “#bitchstolemylook #robelife #meghanmarkle #jamesstunt #roberoyalty”


Elsewhere, on social media, others shared equally amusing insight about the new ‘royal morphed into commoner at the demand of the modern day Mrs Simpson’s’ arrival. On the especially middle class ‘The Archers Anonymous’ group on Facebook, one Neil Jeffrey declared: “So nice of the Duke and Duchess to name the baby after a carpet.” Yes, indeed, Archie Carpet of Milton Keynes must be delighted. Sales will no doubt now rocket.

  1. Prince Harry is a prat. He should never have married this social climber. She has no respect for anyone and she treats her family like dog turds.

  2. Claire Rubinstein is plainly a lady with a sense of humour. MeGAIN Markle is not. And as for James Stunt, love his YouTube videos. He should have a TV show.

  3. Poor darling, she looks exhausted after that birth ordeal. Probably the 18 midwives and specialists on standby was too much for her. I like the comment by William, “welcome to the sleep deprivation club” etc. I really don’t think she, or Harry will be getting up in the middle of the night to tend to a screaming sprog like the rest of us mear mortals.

  4. Finally Britain sees how a real adult reacts to this silly, infantile fantasy ya’ll wallow. Meghan and Harry are going to move out and have real adult lives in the real world. So refreshing. You must admit this royal shite becomes tiresome fast.
