Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are following in Princess Diana’s footsteps when it comes to their media policy.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been accused of having double standards as they sometimes command attention and at other times cry out against abuse.
A royal expert has claimed Meghan and Harry are playing a “dangerous game” to regain their reputation in the US.
In an op-ed for the New Zealand Herald, Daniela Elser claims that while the Duke of Sussex has slammed the firm for playing the media game, it has done just that by promoting the memoir Spare, which it issued. opening interviews for mainstream media.

The author continued: “Yet there was no protest about the invasion of privacy by the Duke and Duchess, the press poking their angry noses into the family’s private life.”
Elser said Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, had a similar relationship with the press, sometimes seeking attention and sometimes shouting back against harassment.
On the other hand, some royal commentators have urged the Sussexes to still stick to royal tidbits, despite being openly critical of members of the royal family.
