Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have faced strong backlash over alleged ‘publicity stunt’ in order to make them ‘look good on social media’, a royal expert claims.
According to the details, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly came under fire over their bid to earn publicity on social media.
Phil Dampier, author of Royally Suited: Harry and Meghan In Their Own Words, said they often leaked news to the media via their spokesperson rather than announcing it themselves. He claimed they did this to paint a flattering picture of themselves on social media but it instead looked “manipulated and contrived”.
This came after a spokesperson for the Sussexes recently confirmed the couple had “privately congratulated” Kate Middleton and Prince William on their 10 year marriage milestone.
The author was reported to have said: ‘Instead they [Meghan and Harry] relied on their spokespeople leaking out the fact they sent a message, making it look manipulated and contrived.’
Speaking to The Sun, Dampier said the Queen and Prince Charles’ public message to William and Kate was public, so Harry and Meghan’s should have been too.
Meanwhile, Piers Morgan has once again taken a swipe at the Duchess by insisting he doesn’t believe her. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry do not miss any opportunity to capture the attention with their moves.
