Meghan Markle was seen sobbing as the Sussexes were denied any share of the one-billion-dollar inheritance from the Queen, while other members of the royal family, such as Wales, received their portions.
Since the release of Prince Harry’s revealing memoir, “Spare,” the couple has faced negative press coverage, which has affected their popularity. However, there is hope that they can regain public favor and become hot properties in their own right if they refocus their efforts away from the royal family.
According to PR expert and author Ria Freeman, Meghan and Harry have much to offer outside the royal family. Megan’s advocacy for women and girls and Harry’s work with veterans and the Invictus Games hold great potential.
Recovering their popularity won’t be an overnight process, and it will require considerable effort, but Freeman believes they can shine if they refrain from making negative remarks about the royal family.
Being associated with the royal family may not necessarily help them establish themselves in their own right, so the key is for Meghan and Harry to focus on making a positive difference in the world. Freeman emphasizes that there are numerous opportunities they can pursue, and both of them have the potential to be highly sought-after public figures.
Since Meghan and Harry’s separation from the royal family and their move to California in 2020, media coverage has predominantly revolved around their relationships with the royals. From the famous Oprah interview to Harry’s appearances, much attention has been on their ties to the royal family.
However, tensions escalated significantly after the release of Harry’s memoir, where he made surprising allegations against members of the royal family, including King Charles, Queen Camilla, and Prince William. This strained the family relations and impacted the Sussexes’ popularity in polls conducted in both the United States and the UK.
According to Freeman, it’s now up to Meghan and Harry to minimize the negative noise surrounding them. By setting clear goals and focusing on their own initiatives, they have a chance to bounce back in the public eye and regain their popularity. Their potential to make a positive impact in the world remains significant, and many are eager to see what they do next.
Despite the setbacks caused by the Memoir’s release and media campaigns, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have the opportunity to rebuild their image and become influential figures through their own endeavors. Whether they continue to be associated with the royal family or carve their own path, their actions in the coming days will determine how they are perceived by the public.
