Meghan Markle's 40th birthday charity stunt has been slammed for being "all about Meghan" by a royal biographer.
The Duchess of Sussex asked fans to donate 40 minutes of their time to good deeds on the day.
She also contacted celebrities who agreed to spend time mentoring women back into work after the Covid pandemic.
But royal biographer Duncan Larcombe argued the scheme has not been a success in Britain, the Express reports.
He told True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat: “It's great, she's doing that, she's just had a baby, and it's all about Meghan, and it's all rubbish frankly. It's gone down so badly in this country.
“She has left behind her a trail of devastation, on the Markle side, and now on the Windsor side.
“I don’t want to see her lecturing young mums having to go back to work from inside her $11 million LA mansion.
“This initiative is nonsense, she should be spending her time trying to build bridges with the very people that she and Harry have betrayed.
“That's what I think most people in this country believe.”
Meghan, who turned 40 on August 4, is estranged from her father Thomas, and has a tense relationship with half-sister Samantha and half-brother Thomas Jnr.

“Meghan and Harry are attacking the world. Attacking his 95-year-old grandmother is unforgivable.”
