A ROYAL expert has questioned what the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have “actually achieved” since quitting the UK two years ago.
The Duke and Duchess will return to the UK in September to support “several charities close to their hearts”, the couple’s spokesperson said of their upcoming first joint visit since the Platinum Jubilee.
But ahead of the much publicised visit, Royal expert Daniela Elser says Harry and Meghan have failed to make a mark on US politics.
Writing for News.com.au, Ms Elser said: “Sadly, for two people who seem to truly care, there is not one issue, not one cause they have really moved the needle on since they embarked on this new life of theirs.”
“The bottom line is Harry and Meghan have proven totally unsuccessful at making themselves matter in the corridors of power in Washington, New York, Silicon Valley or Los Angeles.”
Ms Elser has also questioned if the “Sussex/Netflix marriage” can “survive”, continuing: “Potentially hundreds of millions of dollars are riding on this docuseries for the self-supporting, private jet-flying, polo-loving Sussexes.
“If it turns out that the Duke and Duchess are TV gold, if they are about to demonstrate that they are binge-worthy stars who can pull in streaming viewers globally, then their US careers are set. Get another polo pony! Hell, buy seven.
“But, if they fail to live up to the hype and the rhetoric? The huge sums being touted and all those lovely millions supposedly coming their way could dry up faster than a Californian lake.”
