A royal commentator has claimed that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle’s popularity in the UK is waning, so they are instead turning to target audiences in the US.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down from royal duties and moved to the US last year, setting up base in Montecito, Santa Barbara.
They have since signed several big-money deals with the likes of Spotify and Netflix as well as making several TV appearances over the pond.
And by leaving the UK, some experts suggest that the royal couple are attempting to build relationships with different audiences.
“I think most people in the UK are pretty bored of Prince Harry and Meghan” claimed royal commentator Jonathan Sacerdoti, on to the Royally Us podcast.
“I think they know that as well, I’m not sure they’re really aiming at the UK market in their actions and in all of the commercial deals they’re making.”
But, he stressed, “that’s not to say there isn’t interest in them, there’s massive interest in all of the Royal Family”.
Jonathan suggested that Harry and Meghan “have really built their own brand and image stateside after leaving as working royals”.
Upon leaving the UK, the Duke and Duchess initially settled in Vancouver Island in Canada. However, earlier last year they resettled in Los Angeles before permanently residing in Montecito.
The former Suits star has been in the headlines recently, as her half-brother Thomas Markle Jr joined the Big Brother house in Australia. In an announcement teaser he claimed that he had warned the Prince “I think she’s going to ruin your life”, before the pair married.
Since Meghan joined the Royal Family in May 2018, the couple have had two children.
Eldest child Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born in May 2019, while daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor arrived earlier this year in June.
It is currently unclear where Lilibet will be christened, with some reports suggesting that it will only be a small gathering.
