A ROYAL expert has claimed that royal family members should focus on representing the UK and the Queen, rather than “promoting themselves”.
Ingrid Seward, editor in chief of Majesty magazine, said to Hello! that the Fab Four should be aware that everything they do or say reflects on the monarchy.
She said: “Both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should be seen as representing the UK and the Queen rather than promoting themselves.
“Royalty is a family business and of course they should highlight their favourite causes, but also bear in mind whatever they do or say reflects on the overall business of the monarch.”
Ingrid added that she not surprised that many members of the public feel the royal family “offer a more positive image than our elected leaders”, thanks to their charitable work.
This has been shown by Meghan and Prince Harry being recently praised for promoting worthwhile causes on Instagram, and highlighting 15 causes close to their heart.
However, the Duchess of Sussex, 38, has also come under fire for her “virtue signalling” Vogue edition, which she helped to guest edit.
She was criticised for trying to promote her “woke political agenda” by featuring Trump-hating celebs" in her "left-wing" issue.
And Piers Morgan also accused the Duchess of caring more about promoting "brand Meghan" in America than being a Royal.
WHAT ROYAL TOURS ARE COMING UP IN THE DIARY?
- Autumn – The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Pakistan at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office
- Autumn – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, accompanied by their son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, will make an official trip to Africa. The trip will start in South Africa and then the Duke will visit Angola, Malawi, and Botswana before rejoining the Duchess and his son in South Africa.
He concluded: "She constantly bleats about privacy but also wants to edit magazines to promote herself and tell us how to lead our lives."
In the controversial Vogue issue, available to buy now, Meghan recommends breathing and meditation for “internal beauty” and “a favourite workout that urges you to use your heart as much as your core.”
Meghan reveals it was she who first contacted Vogue editor Edward Enninful as she wanted publicity for her patronage Smart Works, which helps women get back into work by boosting their confidence.
Earlier this year, it was revealed that the couple had spent £2.4m of taxpayers' money on their revamp of Frogmore Cottage – including installing TWO orangeries and a floating floor.
Recently Prince Harry also came under fire for reportedly giving a barefoot speech at a Google climate retreat to celebs who had flocked in on 114 private jets and superyachts.
The Duchess of Sussex has also hinted that life in the public eye "isn't easy" as she opened up to Pharrell Williams at The Lion King premiere in London.
