Princess Beatrice and Eugenie have been slammed for a rare interview they did with Vogue last year.
In the August 2018 article, the sisters opened up about living life in the royal spotlight.
"We want to show people who we are as working, young, royal women, but also not to be afraid of putting ourselves out there," the pair declared.
However, Daily Mirror Royal Editor Russell Myers says he found the whole interview rather "cringeworthy."
In an episode of Pod Save the Queen, Myers said: "It's pretty cringeworthy in my opinion.
"The very fact that they are talking about the pressures of their personal lives, about being young independent woman while being members of the Royal Family - it's just a bit too much to stomach for some people, myself included."
Myers went on to criticise the duo, who told the magazine "We're real."
"It's just a tad ridiculous that they are saying this," he continued.
"They've been heavily criticised in the past about the number of extravagant holidays they're taking while not being too conscientious in their work life.
Myers then went on to compare the women to their"own-to-earth" cousins Prince William and Harry.
"If they want to be taken seriously talking about their charity work, which they do do, they've got to bring themselves back down to earth."
