Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their new foundation, Archewell, in April, and they have just launched its official website. But a royal expert advised the royal couple to “stop talking and start working.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced earlier this year that they were stepping back from their royal duties. They flew to the United States after they carried out their final royal engagement. At present, they are busy with their own foundation and have appeared on various programs and conferences.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry should take action
Prince Harry and Markle got the flak for their involvement in U.S. politics even if they didn’t endorse a candidate. Many criticized the pair because royals stay away from politics as possible.
There were reports claiming Markle was shocked by the criticisms after her video urging the U.S. citizens to vote was released. Ward shared her thoughts about the issue and warned the couple.
“But surely neither of them were that surprised that the move prompted a sharp intake of breath from royal family members and courtiers who now have no idea where this couple are headed and crucially, no control over it either,” Ward wrote per Express.
“What is clear is that soon, the Sussexes will have to move away from talking and start working to instigate the changes that they have called for on their chosen issues,” she added before concluding, “It will be no small feat.”
Royal couple allegedly exploiting status
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were also criticized for allegedly trying to have both ways. The royal couple announced earlier this year that they would step back and work to be financially independent. However, many felt that they were using their privileges and royal status in their business ventures.
“I would not suggest that anybody follows their example because they are trying to have it both ways. They are trying to exploit their status and titles for their own personal gain as far as I can see,” Republic CEO Graham Smith said.
“They need to make a decision, break away from the Royal Family completely, or don’t and stay with the Royal Family.”
Republic is an organization that campaigns to abolish the monarchy. The group has been criticizing the couple in the past months, especially when they were still working royals.
