Adore England ,

Like is Controversial...

Interesting every review makes certain how much listeners dislike Maggie & now Omid. But, the Podcast is simply a fun run on the Royals day to day diaries. & it is Fun! They, the Royals create the best of England & the Commonwealth. The monies & incomes they’ve created for the citizens. The work they do for all the charities...Just amazing the income created for $1.80 tax on each taxpayer imposed. Sorry but without, the country would become the loss cause & suffer beyond means.
Been to UK many times & adore visits to the countryside, the Lake District, York, the beautiful gardens. There’s so much more than controversy over the Royals, it is a shared wealth which is simply shared by the various Podcasts, YouTube & media.

Spickering ,

CBS PR for the Sussexes

Omid used to do reporting on the younger royals. He has since gone all in on the Sussex brand, acting as a PR shill for M & H. There’s no independence here. Such a shame. This man in his 30’s will now have no future in royal reporting, which is his only skill, as he will rightfully be denied access to Palace resources in the future. I hope it was worth it.

Omid is a scam

ABC can do better than this gossipfest. Pod Save The Queen and The Royal Rota are far more informed than this speculative drivel.

Omid presents himself as being a royal insider. He’s not. He presents himself as being a spokesman for the Sussexes. He’s not. Omid presents himself as being the author of Finding Freedom and consistently avoids mentioning his co-author, Carolyn Durand, a woman who IS a royal insider. In short, Omid is a scam who does nothing more than presenting his own speculative and well-spun fiction as fact while stealing the work of real journalists that he presents as his own work. He has a favorite royal and will always choose salacious & untrue details that slander others while promoting his crush, Meghan. His podcast innuendos are almost stalker-like and would fit right in with any tabloid that claims the Queen is from Mars. He should drop the pretense of being a legitimate royal reporter and just call his podcast ‘Markle’s Manboy Musings’.
