Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could be facing more court time after an American YouTube star said she wanted to sue them for defamation. Shallon Lester was featured in the couple’s Netflix docuseries Harry & Meghan in a section about online trolls.
One of her videos appeared onscreen when they were talking about a coordinated campaign against the duo on social media. Those behind the “hate propaganda” were dubbed ” housewives” and “middle-aged Caucasian women creating just constant attacks”.
But Lester, 43, has taken umbrage to that and claims she will take them to court. Speaking this week, she accused the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of presenting a “tinfoil hat conspiracy theory as fact”.
She also accused them of lacking “integrity” and claimed the world was “tired of watching Meghan and Harry present their imagined victim narrative as fact”. But who is Shallon Lester and why has she got under the skin of Harry and Meghan?

Reality TV and YouTube rants
According to Lester’s website, she is an “author, sexpert, influencer and all around weapon of feminine wiles”. Her site included an ‘Alpha Academy’ to help women get back with their exes.
Lester first came to screen prominence in 2010 when she appeared in MTV reality TV show Downtown Girls. The programme followed five female friends as they navigated life and love in New York City.
Before that she had co-authored ‘Hot Mess: Summer in the City’ with Julie Kraut in 2008 and followed that up with her own book, ‘Exes and Ohs: A Downtown Girl’s (Mostly Awkward) Tales of Love, Revenge and a Little Facebook Stalking’ in 2011. She has also written for Glamour magazine, the New York Daily News, and Gossip Girl and was once dubbed “a 21st century Carrier Bradshaw (only with a better nose and cheaper shoes)”.
Nowadays, she is best known for her YouTube channel which currently has 350,000 subscribers. The channel promises “celeb gossip and love lessons”. Lester says: “I spill the tea on celebs like Kylie Jenner, the Kardashians, Meghan Markle, Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin, Rihanna and more to see what lessons WE can learn, and give you no-BS advice on everything from dating apps and players, to family and friends!”
Her most recent video was about comedian and actor Pete Davidson, who has just entered rehab. It is entitled “The pros & cons of dating a messy guy”. Other celebs she has featured include Taylor Swift, Megan Fox and Harry Styles.
She has been hugely critical of Harry and Meghan, especially the Duchess, and describes herself as a “Meghan truther”. In a video posted after Spotify dumped Meghan’s Archetypes podcast, Lester blasted those who called criticism of Meghan racist and calls her a “grifter” who was “not what she seemed” when she and Harry first got together.
