Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have come under fire from a royal commentator for their "elitism" and have been branded "frauds" regarding the educational choices for their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

The Sussexes are said to be eyeing some of the most elite schools in Montecito, California, with reports suggesting they've toured a private school where fees can soar to £40,000 annually.

Harry is a former student of top-tier institutions such as Ludgrove and Eton College in England, while Meghan is a graduate of Immaculate Heart High School, a Catholic all-girls establishment in Los Angeles, the Express reports.

US journalist Lee Cohen has expressed his exasperation at the couple's actions, criticising them for considering such an exclusive and costly education for their kids when they claim to stand for equality and social justice.

Speaking to GBN America, Cohen remarked: "Their supposed commitment to progressive causes is nothing but a facade. If they're willing to indulge in this epitome of elitism, there is no advocating for equality.

"Yet they're willing to pay staggering tens of thousands per year for their children's education.

"How can they possibly justify this when so many families struggle to afford even the basic necessities?

"Sending their children to such a prestigious institution completely exposes the frauds that Harry and Meghan are. By perpetuating the very systems of privilege that they claim to expose."
