Meghan and Harry must seriously think of future after bad PR, expert claims

Royal commentator Neil Sean has said Meghan Markle and Prince Harry need to "seriously think about the future" after receiving backlash over several public appearances.

Since stepping down as senior members of the Royal Family, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have gone out on their own, finding their feet in the world of Hollywood with their two children Archie, two, and four month old Lilibet.

However, Meghan, 40, and her 37 year old husband Prince Harry have faced a great deal of criticism over the last year after doing a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, signing multimillion-dollar deals with Netflix and Spotify and taking a private jet to New York despite preaching a greener globe.

Now, NBC correspondent Neil has claimed the couple "cannot afford bad PR" in a YouTube video titled 'Meghan – Harry – “we’ve changed our minds” #princeharry #meghanmarkle #royalnews'.

“On a serious note, I do think Meghan and Harry need to seriously think about where they are going to go with their brand moving forward," he explained while dressed in a navy suit with a yellow tie.

He went on to reference Meghan's initiative to support women getting back to work in her latest birthday video as well as the time she read a segment from her children's book The Bench to kids in New York.

Neil continued: “They can’t afford with such bad PR, which is relentless, we’re talking about the birthday video, ‘The Bench’ book, the New York trip.

"A lot of people say, 'Oh well, you're contributing to that Neil' – I would say I’m just simply reporting the facts. A lot of these things were not successful.”

He went on to explain that he tries to give the public a "middle ground" by reporting both the successful and not so successful things.

Neil then explained that a bad review could be seen by million of people in a month before asking: “Can any celebrity – and let’s face it that’s what Harry and Meghan are now – can they afford to have that problem?”

The expert added that one approach they could take is to choose "preferred journalists" to share their stories with the wider media.

Many of his 81,900 subscribers commented on the video as one person wrote: "Sadly, it is way too late. I can’t see them ever being the darlings of the press again."
