While Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are relatively well-liked in the United States, they will be somewhat less popular in Japan, where behavior towards the Queen is described as rude.
Japanese fans of the monarchy can’t believe the Sussexes behaved so rudely to Queen Elizabeth, says Angela Levine, a keen observer of the royal family.
The journalist is also the author of several books on the royal family.
“No one would treat their royal family like this”, the expert explained, even qualifying the Sussexes’ brazen unpacking against Oprah Winfrey as “rude” to the Queen.
“The Japanese are fascinated by our royal family. From time to time, one of their TV stations asks me to keep up with what’s happening in the UK. Their main interests at the moment are Harry and Meghan and who can blame them He can’t believe his behavior towards the royals is so harsh. No one will behave like this towards their royal family, they tell me,” she said.
