Kate and William may ‘strike back’ as Harry and Meghan ‘take control’ -check

 

KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are launching a “strike back” after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made the front cover of Time magazine, a royal expert has claimed.

 

 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were recently honoured with the prestigious accolade of being named in Time magazine’s illustrious list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Meghan and Harry said they were “humbled” to be featured in the publication as bold new images of the royal couple sent royal fans into a spin.

 

 

But royal experts have suggested the new photos risk inflaming a “PR battle” between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their royal relations abroad as young members of the Firm jostle for prime position. Commenting on the photos, royal commentator and author Duncan Larcombe sensationally claimed Kate and William were “concerned” as, unlike Harry and Meghan, they have “no control over the narrative.

He said: “Kate and William are in danger of being dragged into a transatlantic popularity contest. “They will feel anxious over the cover and everything Harry and Meghan do as it always seems to reflect on them.

 

 

And now commentator Daniela Elser has suggested the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are staging a “strike back” with their charitable endeavours. She said: “There is now something of a philanthropic land grab going on, with the royal house and the breakaway state of Sussex now both laying claim to similar ground.

She added: “Harry and Meghan face being forced into a protracted PR battle with the royal house.” It comes as the Duke of Sussex has taken part in a joint family venture to commemorate the life of his late grandfather, Prince Philip.

 

 

Harry and William will join other senior royals in paying tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh in a BBC film in what could be the first signs of the brothers’ rift beginning to thaw. Neither Meghan nor the Queen has taken part in the documentary, which will air on Wednesday at 9pm on BBC One. The Duchess of Cambridge and other spouses of the Queen and Philip’s grandchildren also will not appear.
