Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s ability to generate headlines and “overshadow” the rest of the Royal Family has been branded an “open sore” for the Palace’s media team. Political commentator Ed West was scything of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after being invited by The Sun’s Steven Edginton to discuss the future Royal Family following the death of Prince Philip.
Mr West said: “We know whatever Harry and Meghan do it is of interest, it drives traffic and sales newspapers.
“So everything they do is going to inevitably overshadow the rest of the Royal Family.
“So it is going to be a running sore to the Royal PR team.
“And in the case of Meghan and Harry, they just seem to like speaking out.

“So that is that’s the kind of terrible combination.”
Mr West went on to compare Prince Harry to his “embarrassing” grand-uncle Edward VIII, who abdicated the throne in order to marry his American lover Wallis Simpson.
He said: “Edward VIII didn’t really say much, I mean he was a bit of an embarrassment.
“Everything about him was embarrassing as a king he was just unsuitable.

Mr West continued: “Harry is unfortunately of similar ilk.

“You have to be slightly bland, you need to be someone who can cope with this kind of mad Truman Show world they are in.
“And not go off the rails and not particularly want attention.”

He added: “You know, treat just like another job.
“Well, he and Meghan have a kind of combustible urge to be in the news but also hating it.”
Royal watchers have grown increasingly frustrated about Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s ability to occupy headlines, especially around the funeral of Prince Philip earlier this month.
Notably, details of Meghan Markle’s personal message written on the wreath left at St George’s Chapel were leaked to the press, while Harry was also the focus of speculation after the Queen was forced to break with tradition and ban all military outfits from the service in a bid to spare the Prince’s blushes.
