Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are “burning out” their celebrity status in the US, according to royal author Tom Bower. Speaking to Palace Confidential, the royal biographer said the couple was struggling to stay relevant as interest waned in the former working royals. He said the Sussexes will eventually have to “give up” their royal status and find another brand if they want to continue to be seen as celebrities in America.
Mr Bower recently published a bombshell biography of Meghan Markle, titled Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War Between the Windsors.
The royal author claimed the Sussexes had overused their “royal card” and Americans were no longer interested in the couple.
He told Palace Confidential host Jo Elvin: “When Meghan called up two US senators to campaign for maternity pay, she introduced herself as Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.
“She plays the royal card the whole time.
“I don’t think that will play well in an election for Congress or Senate if she did pursue politics.”
Mr Bower continued: “I think they have to realign their image.
“In any case, they are burning their royal status pretty fast now.
“I think they will, in the end, have to give that up because it won’t wash.”
Ms Elvin asked: “Can they make their particular brand of celebrity last?”
