Royal Family News: Prince Harry and Meghan Need to Be At Platinum Jubilee For “Their Brand”
British royal family news shows that the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebration occurs next year. The occasion is the monarch’s seventh decade on the throne and questions are swirling as to whether Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be present to help the royals celebrate. For one thing they removed themselves from the monarchy in a distasteful and disruptive move dubbed Megxit, so would they even want to be there?
Since leaving they have made no bones about how victimized they were by living in the palace rent free, all luxuries paid for by the taxpayer, having personal aides to do their bidding, and so on. Cry me a river.
Royal Family News: Will The Markle’s Return
One royal expert told Express.co.uk that it would be surprising if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stay home and do not attend the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year. Why would they want to be in a locale where their popularity has plummeted and public opinion of them is at an all-time low?
According to the expert the only claim to fame they have comes via their royal-ness, no matter how slim the margin is. Which is why they insist on being called the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wherever they go?
Royal Family News: The Markle’s Are Trading Off Others’ Fame
Ian Lloyd states that the thirty pair’s association with Queen Elizabeth and Harry’s relationship to the late Princess Diana is the “only reason” they are newsworthy. Ouch, but the truth hurts.
Lloyd has worked for decades as a royal photographer and biographer and he said: “I would be surprised if they didn’t appear next year for the Jubilee, and that’s because their brand relies on the fact that they are associated with the Royal Family.”
“As much as they appear to fight against it and go off in their own direction to do things, the only reason that they are getting the fame they have at the moment is because Harry is the grandson of Elizabeth II and his mother was Princess of Wales, Diana, who everybody in America adored.”
Royal Family News: The Markle’s Are A Brand
Is he wrong? Many royal fans would agree wholeheartedly that the moppets have done nothing to earn any level of fame. They have produced zero for Netflix and Spotify after landing obscene contracts and one has to think their bosses are fuming as they watch the Markle’s play polo and model designer dresses all day long versus completing the terms of their work contracts.
Ian contends, “The association with the Royal Family is vital so I think they would probably want to come to be associated with them, just to keep their brand alive.” Because without anything of substance to their name, a hollow brand is all they stand for.
