The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were recently honoured with the prestigious accolade of being named in Time magazine’s illustrious list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Meghan and Harry said they were “humbled” to be featured in the publication as bold new images of the royal couple sent royal fans into a spin. But royal experts have suggested the new photos risk inflaming a “PR battle” between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their royal relations abroad as young members of the Firm jostle for prime position.
She said: “There is now something of a philanthropic land grab going on, with the royal house and the breakaway state of Sussex now both laying claim to similar ground.”
She added: “Harry and Meghan face being forced into a protracted PR battle with the royal house.”
It comes as the Duke of Sussex has taken part in a joint family venture to commemorate the life of his late grandfather, Prince Philip.
Harry and William will join other senior royals in paying tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh in a BBC film in what could be the first signs of the brothers’ rift beginning to thaw.
