Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been accused of making “mistake after mistake” after stepping down as senior royals in March 2020. In Dusseldorf, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex went on a royal walkabout but said they were not allowed to give out autographs which are in keeping with royal protocol. Royal commentator Christine Ross claimed the pair do not appear to have “found their footing”.
Speaking on Us Weekly’s Royally Us, Ms Ross said: “I even saw today when they were in Dusseldorf, they did a walkabout, which is a very royal thing to do, you don’t usually see that.
“In one of the clips I saw, Meghan said that she wasn’t allowed to give out autographs.
“So there was this weird blurred line, if they were just normal people, you see celebrities giving autographs all of the time.
“I feel like they haven’t found their footing in being non-royals but also being non-celebrities.”
Co-host Christina Garibaldi added: “Nobody has really done this like them before, nobody has tried to be celebrities and royals.
“They are trying to find their footing, but it just seems like they keep making mistake after mistake, and misstep after misstep, and it’s just not really hitting and not really connecting with a lot of people.”
The royal couple did thrill fans in Germany as they went on a walkabout in the hot sunshine before taking a cruise along the River Rhine.
Harry and Meghan shook hands and chatted with an eager crowd outside Dusseldorf Town Hall as they marked the one-year countdown to The Invictus Games coming to the city.

Shouts of “Harry, Harry” could be heard, while Meghan posed for selfies with members of the public who stood in the sun to catch a glimpse of the couple on their short visit to Dusseldorf.
The duchess wore a cream halter-neck knitted vest by LA-based designer Anine Bing, and beige wide-legged belted trousers.
The couple’s outing on Tuesday comes after they made their first public appearance in the UK since returning for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee earlier this year.
The MS Rhein Galaxie which Harry and Meghan were expected to be on, set sail down the River Rhine on Tuesday afternoon shortly before 3.30pm.

A small German police boat travelled slightly ahead of the vessel.
A number of people, understood to be Invictus competitors and their family and friends, stood on the top deck of the large ship, which had the official flags of the games flying upon it.
The couple were understood to be taking a brief sightseeing tour on the boat before heading to the Merkur Spiel-Arena for a press conference at which Harry will deliver remarks.
Delivering a speech at the Town Hall reception, Harry, wearing a suit and white shirt, said he is “filled with such excitement” at the thought of the next Invictus Games having the backdrop of the River Rhine.
He said: “I can’t wait to hear the roar of the crowds, to feel the adrenalin of the competition and join in on the laughter and even the tears, happy ones of course, while we get to witness lives being changed right before our eyes.”
