Royal expert Daniela Elser said that the couple has “taken hit after hit over the last 12 days or so”, adding: “things are not exactly looking that rosy over Montecito way”.
Not only did “not many people turn up” to Prince Harry’s address to the United Nations on July 18, Ms. Elser claimed, but shortly afterward royal author Tom Bower released his book, “Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War Between the Windsors”.
Ms. Elser described the book as being a “largely unrelenting, highly unflattering take on the Sussexes”.
Then came the court battle between Meghan and her estranged half-sister, Samantha Markle, who accused Meghan of allegedly telling “false and malicious lies” during her Oprah Winfrey interview last year. The Duchess of Sussex has denied the claims.
Ms. Elser also noted that the couple may have been left with a hefty bill as a result of Prince Harry’s legal battle with the Home Office over his security arrangements.
The commentator explained: “The Sun has reported that the UK Government has spent $156,000 on the case from September last year to May 2020.
“If Harry’s costs are similar then that would mean he has also spent well into the six figures to argue the case over his security arrangements which only pertain to the handful of days per year he has spent, on average, in the UK since quitting.” – express
