Prince Harry ‘more interested in building his brand’ than going to family events, claims expert

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down as senior royals in January 2020, and since relocating to the US they’ve embarked on a new career in Hollywood, signing big deals with Netflix and launching a new lifestyle brand

Prince Harry is more interested in building his brand than worrying about being invited to family events, a royal expert has claimed.

The 39-year-old Duke of Sussex relocated to the US in January 2020 with wife Meghan Markle and their son Prince Archie, and since stepping down as senior working royals, they’ve settled in Montecito, California and added Princess Lilibet to their growing family. His relationship with big brother Prince William, sister-in-law Kate Middleton and his father King Charles has seemingly been negatively impacted by his move Stateside, and Harry’s memoir Spare did little to help build bridges between him and his estranged family.

After making a series of explosive allegations in the memoir released last year, including the claim that Charles’ second wife Camilla had been using her PR team to plant negative stories about Harry in the press, his relationship with William was effectively over, and the warring brothers haven’t spoken for over a year. While he’s missed out on being invited to big family events, such as Charles’ 75th birthday last year, as well as Christmas and Easter, royal expert Louella Alderson believes Harry is too busy to worry about being left out.

“It’s likely that Harry is more focused on his family and building his new brand rather than spending a significant amount of time thinking about every event he is no longer part of. Harry now has his own life in America which appears to be keeping him busy,” she told The Mirror.

Both Harry and Meghan have “a lot on their plate”, and don’t have time to worry about their strained relationship with senior royals, despite the King’s cancer diagnosis earlier this year. The Duke flew to London when he was informed of the news as he made a desperate dash to be by his father’s side, but only met with the monarch for 45 minutes before Charles headed to Sandringham with Camilla.

“Harry and Meghan also have much bigger things to worry about at this point in their lives. With their declining popularity rates, constant media scrutiny and ongoing legal battles, they have a lot on their plate,” Louella continued. She believes Harry and Meghan won’t be bothered by the reports they’ve not been invited to Princess Eugenie’s birthday this weekend, as they will be too busy working on their own projects in the US.

Meghan recently launched her lifestyle brand American Riviera Orchard, and there are rumours the new project will see her front her own cookery show on Netflix. The brand, which is being compared to Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, will sell homewares, including table linen and crockery, as well as nut butters, jellies and jams, which an international collection will focus on yogawear and pet products.
