‘Meghan Markle, Prince Harry are a good advertisement for best side of royals’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, in spite of the bombshells they have dropped against the British royal family, have been labelled as the 'good part' of the Firm.

While speaking about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to the Hudson Library & Historical Society, royal author Clive Irving touched upon the struggles of the royal fold and how the monarchy needs to survive through its evolving image.

“They are a very good advertisement for the best side of the Royal Family. They are devoted to public work,” Irving said about Harry and Meghan and how they could possibly become saviors of Queen Elizabeth II.

"Harry wants to use his status as Diana's son and a royal prince to do good works, which he will do. One of the most appalling pieces of hypocrisy was to complain that Harry and Meghan wanted to cash in with a Sussex brand and make money,” he said.

"Let me remind you that Prince Charles was the first one to cash in. He has a royal brand and it's called the Duchy of Cornwall,” he added.

"It's got a brand, it's got a portcullis as a brand. He sells things through a British supermarket chain called Waitrose, ranging from pickled onions to potted crab to ginger biscuits. He makes £20 million, which is about $28 million, a year out of this,” he shared.
