Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s much-publicized schism in the royal family, and their series of interviews and book deals that followed, have done little to maintain British favor. Many in the UK see the couple as traitors, not only for shirking their royal duties, but also for the big move to the United States. Their excessive charitable efforts feel overwhelmed in the face of what some see as a betrayal of Harry’s homeland. Throughout their stay in New York, a film crew followed them for each tour and reunion, raising questions about the possibility of a Kardashian-esque reality show in the works (per Forbes).
While a Netflix special would give the couple another chance to explain their side of the story, the sensationalism of their lives can take a toll on the down-to-earth and authentic vibe they’ve worked to cultivate unlike the mouth closed and appropriate. approach the royal family takes to public relations. The couple are clearly working to consolidate their place in the world with an emphasis on charitable efforts. And while there are worse things they could focus on than various causes, more focused outreach is needed if they are to preserve the image of doing good for God’s sake.
