Meghan and Harry warned dont keep knocking Royal Family by PR expert

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been warned not to keep “knocking” the Royal Family by a PR expert.

Since departing from royal duties, Meghan and Harry’s relationship with their royal relatives has reportedly been strained.

This came to a head during an interview with Oprah Winfrey shortly after the couple had settled in LA, where a number of accusations were levelled against the royal institution.

Later on this year, Harry is set to release a tell-all memoir, allegedly raising fears among members of the Firm about what details might be included.

Now, addressing where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may go next, a PR expert has warned the couple against damaging their relationship with the royals further.

Richard Fitzwilliams began by acknowledging that Harry and Meghan have “enormous potential”, referencing TIME Magazine’s decision to use the couple as cover models for their ‘World’s 100 Most Influential People’ issue in September last year.

“I appreciate totally the work that Harry wants to do for Invictus and mental health, the work that Meghan wants to do for mental health, and the disadvantaged… that’s always been part and parcel of what she wants to do,” he said, speaking to the To Di For Daily podcast.

But, with news that Meghan’s half-sister Samantha is launching a lawsuit against her ex-royal relative, Richard pointed out that “partly through no fault of her own”, the Duchess had difficult relationships with her own family.

“And also she’s created a rift with the Royal Family, or at least worsened it by Oprah,” he added.

“Whatever future they want, they’re completely unpredictable in my opinion, don’t keep knocking the British Royal Family.

“Don’t keep knocking your family, which it is. They have a very destructive side, and Oprah showed that very clearly.”

During the interview with the US chat show host, Meghan suggested that she had seriously struggled with her mental health, and the couple also claimed that an unnamed royal member had made comments about the colour of Archie’s skin.

After the Oprah interview, Buckingham Palace said they were "saddened" by the allegations and would address the issues privately as a family.

More recently, the Sussexes appear to have moved on from their royal lives, signing deals with streaming platforms, and receiving an award from the NAACP for their charity and social justice work.

“They’re always talking about freedom and positivity, which is excellent. There’s no positivity if Harry produces a book that is going to cause harm in the Jubilee year to the Queen,” he continued.

“If you talk positively, it’s high time they acted positive when it comes to the Royal Family.”

This comes as Harry announced that he would not be attending a memorial for Prince Philip, which is set to take place in the UK later this month.
