“They need to shut the f**k up,” the millionaire businessman ranted in a recent online post. 

The 55-year-old, who is the younger brother of Carole Middleton, was speaking in the aftermath of the Sussex’s recent online interview in which they spoke out about “structural racism” in the UK.

He said the pair needed to stop interfering in British politics from the other side of the Atlantic and let the British people get on with “saving lives and the economy”.

In a post on LinkedIn, Gary, who lives in London with his fourth wife Julie-Ann and also owns a luxury villa on the party island of Ibiza, wrote, “With so much stuff going on in the world still these two muppets are craving attention!

“Please shut the F up and bring up their child and stop talking let alone demanding!!

“Harry you have lost our love and respect, Meghan you are a wrong’n. Now hush please we are kinda busy saving lives and an economy. 

Harry (36) and Meghan (39) recently spoke out from their $14 million (about R230 million) mansion in Santa Barbara to mark Black History Month.

The former Suits actress praised the Black Lives Matter protests that have been happening across America as “a beautiful thing” while the prince admitted he’d has “an awakening” about his white privilege.

“I wasn't aware of so many of the issues and so many of the problems within the UK and also globally as well,’ he said. ‘I thought I did but I didn’t,” said the sixth-in-line to the throne in their Zoom interview.

“You know, when you go in to a shop with your children and you only see white dolls, do you even think, ‘That's weird, there is not a black doll there?’

“And I use that as just one example of where we as white people don't always have the awareness of what it must be like for someone else of a different coloured skin, of a black skin, to be in the same situation as we are where the world that we know has been created by white people for white people.”

Gary, whose history includes being arrested for assaulting his wife after she accused him of doing cocaine, added that this “new Harry is someone I don’t recognize”.

“I find it totally frustrating to be lectured daily on any topic they deem to be important.

“They have abdicated the UK for the US and obviously don’t give a damn about the Royal family.

“We’ve all had enough of them lecturing us. You can’t sell your soul to Netflix for a reported £150 million (R3.1 billion) and then dictate to Mother England.”
