Sharon Osbourne alleges Meghan Markle only talks to people with ‘a certain bank balance’

Sharon Osborne, who is a former X-Factor host and the wife of rocker Ozzy Osborne, has hit out at Megan Markle by saying that Markle will choose friends who possess “a certain bank balance” and states that Markle is “hardly a victim.”

Osborne was removed from another of her shows CBS’s The Talk in 2021 after getting into a heated debate about racism with her colleague Sheryl Underwood, which was initiated by a conversation about Markle.

CBS said at the time that “Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace.”

Osbourne said during a recent interview with Newsweek that her views on Markle haven’t changed. Markle left the UK with her husband Prince Harry after they resigned from their royal duties in January 2020.

“I’ve never met her in my life,” Osbourne said to Newsweek when asked about Markle. “But she mixes with the royalty of showbiz, put it that way… I think that you have to be over a certain bank balance for her to talk to you.”

She continued, “It’s all the wealthiest of the [wealthy] in the industry that she hangs out with. And there’s nothing wrong with that at all. God bless you. But she does tell some porky pies [lies]. Put it this way, she’s surrounded by very, very, like how can I do this politely? It’s the cream of the cream in Hollywood music, film, everything she’s surrounded by.”

“She’s hardly a victim,” Osbourne added.

Osbourne did acknowledge that Markle was treated “very harshly” by the UK paparazzi when she first arrived.

“I think that the British press did treat her very harshly when she came,” Osbourne told the outlet. “I can remember one headline, which was very, very ugly. And who knows what goes on in a family? Does every member of every family get on? No… Who knows what goes on in a family or a marriage? I always say nobody ever knows.”

Osbourne also discussed the UK’s intrigue into Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and their divisive impact on the monarchy.

“This American goes to England, marries a prince, and do they [live happily ever] after? No,” she said. “So it bought a lot of attention to this couple, a lot of attention, which goes on and on as we speak. And it’s like you’re either a royalist, or you agree with Harry and Meghan.”
