The Royal Family links will ‘always benefit’ Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
According to an expert, MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry will “always” profit from their royal ties because they have been weaved into their brand.
According to brand and reputation management expert Eric Schiffer, Meghan and Prince Harry can’t “wipe out” their ties to the Royal Family due to their history and DNA. “Harry and Meghan can be successful without blatantly utilizing the linkage [to the Royal Family]because they have developed a base now,” the observer said when asked if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex can be successful in the future without leveraging their royal links.
Mr Schiffer added, explaining why it is difficult to “unlink” this royal bond: “Harry’s mother was Princess Diana, and that will never leave him, therefore being able to disconnect the royalty is impossible for Harry.”
“As a result, he will always benefit in some way, large or small, from the tremendous power that the Crown and Diana wield.
“Today, it’s hard to separate the two.”
Two months after announcing their decision to create a “progressive new role” for themselves within the Firm, Meghan and Prince Harry officially stood down as senior royals at the end of March 2020.
The Duke and Duchess wanted to split their lives between North America and the UK, retain their full titles and patronages, and continue to serve the Crown while also pursuing for-profit projects to become independent from the Sovereign Grant, according to a bombshell statement released in January last year.
Following talks among the royals, their plans were thwarted, and Meghan and Harry eventually stepped aside, refusing to use their HRH styles, participate in royal engagements, or maintain their royal and military ties.
Meghan and Harry have used their royal titles of Duke and Duchess on several occasions in recent months.
Meghan made her debut as a children’s book author last year with the short story The Bench.
Her name appeared on the book’s cover with her Duchess title, prompting accusations from critics that she was attempting to profit from her royal ties.
Meghan and Harry have also been accused of “cashing in” on the royal brand by referencing their interactions with members of the Firm and the Palace during a series of public appearances.
Prince Harry appeared on a special episode of James Corden’s Late Late Show in February. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
