Prince Harry and Meghan Markle 'not A-listers' in the US – memoir risks 'damage' to brand


Prince Harry may have “damaged” the Sussex brand following the release of his memoir Spare last month, a US-based royal expert has claimed. Marlene Koenig, a royal historian focusing on blue-blooded Brits and Europeans, noted how the 38-year-old was the “butt of many jokes on late-night TV”.

She told “Their branding may be damaged because the focus has been more on trashing his family and less on doing work.

“I hate to say this but they are not A-listers.”

Ms Koenig, who also suggested stateside conversations about the Royal Family will be limited besides King Charles’ upcoming Coronation, added: “Harry was the butt of many jokes on late-night TV.

“There have been a number of folks on TV as well as in print stating that airing dirty laundry is not a good thing.

“There will be a percentage of Americans who take their side and see Harry and Meghan as victims.

“William and Catherine got a very positive response when they were in Boston in December. Big crowds.”

Alongside previous demonstrations of support when the Prince and Princess of Wales touched down in Boston last year, Ms Koenig claimed the Royal Family “remains popular” and argued Charles “will have a great reception” the next time he crosses the pond.

Prince Harry’s memoir Spare sold more than 1.4 million copies in its first day of publication.
