A podcast host has claimed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle show a ‘desperation to be taken seriously’ as they try to ‘align’ themselves with ‘important people’ in the USA

Prince Harry must harbour private thoughts about having “given up a lot” as his and Meghan Markle’s standing falls, royal experts have claimed.

Residing in a Montecito mansion after departing senior Royal duties in 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been associating with influential figures as they are thought to be eager to establish high-profile connections in the US. Speaking on Sky News Australia, Royal commentator Kinsey Schofield remarked: “They [Harry and Meghan] try to align themselves with people like Governor Gavin Newsom [California’s Governor], Stacey Abrams, Vice President Kamala Harris, and former First Lady Hilary Clinton. They go out of their way to associate themselves with some of these people.”

In agreement, Sky News host Rita Panahi reflected on the couple’s current position being “a long way from the standing they once had”.

Discussing the recent D-Day commemorations attended by King Charles, Queen Camilla and Prince William, Rita spoke of the powerful global message sent from mingling with global leaders. Kinsey said: “I’m sure he sits back and thinks ‘I’ve given up a lot and now I’m chasing Netflix money’.”

Meanwhile in France, King Charles and the Prince of Wales honoured the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings alongside world leaders and veterans. Their speeches lauded the “bravery and sacrifice” of the individuals who “served at that critical time”, reports the Express.

King Charles has embarked on his first overseas trip since his cancer diagnosis, travelling across the English Channel to attend commemorations for the 80th anniversary of the 1944 D-Day landings in Normandy. Speaking in French, the King conveyed his gratitude to the French people for their “warmth” and “generosity” towards D-Day veterans, which he described as the “most moving and memorable part of these anniversaries.”

His Majesty’s visit to France marks his return to public engagements after receiving clearance from his doctors, who were “encouraged” by his progress following his cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly facing difficulties securing invitations to high-profile events in the United States.

Speaking to the Mirror, Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams said: “The challenge for Harry and Meghan is to attend comparable events in the United States which are not focused on them.” He added: “The Met Gala and the Oscars are the sort of events they would benefit from being seen at, since they have pretensions to be A-listers. Barack Obama’s 60th, held in 2021, the year they were in Time Magazine’s Top 100, is the sort of event they would undoubtedly want to be seen at but were not invited to.”

Last week, the Sussexes also missed out on the high-profile wedding of Hugh Grosvenor, the 7th Duke of Westminster, a close childhood friend of both Prince Harry and Prince William.
