Prince Harry and Meghan Markle supposedly tried to ‘gag’ school children during their trip to New York City back in 2021.

Royal Family News: Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Tried To ‘Gag’ School Children?
Is it even possible to ‘gag’ school children and forbid them from speaking to the media? That’s what critics want to know. As many royal fans can remember, Meghan Markle visited Public School 123 in New York City back in 2021.
Wearing an outfit that was worth $5,000 and her Cartier watch, she read a book to schoolchildren who were mostly living on benefits at home.
The Sussexes insisted that everyone sign a clause that would forbid anyone from speaking to the media in a negative light about their experience with the royal couple. If anyone wanted to say anything bad, Harry and Meghan wanted them not to say anything at all.
For many royal critics, they believe this was a very odd thing to do. Royal author Richard Fitzwilliams even told GB News, “It’s very peculiar, it’s extraordinary because I mean this is taking privacy to extraordinary lengths. Firstly, if you’re looking for favourable publicity, and the Sussexes love both publicity and favourable publicity, you wouldn’t do this sort of thing.”

He continued, “Secondly, usually they’re very presentable in crowds, always say with children. The whole idea of doing something like that is weird because it’s totally counterproductive if it gets out, as it has done. “But also, it’s impossible to know precisely what the children could have said that wasn’t favourable.”
So far Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not made any comments about the ordeal. But then again, there’s a very slim chance that anything will be said seeing how they visited the school children nearly two years ago.
