Prince Harry and Meghan Markle issued a dire warning about their celebrity flame and how they are 'more than likely' running on fumes of their 'glory days' now. 

Royal author and biographer Tom Bower issued this warning while speaking to Palace Confidential host Jo Elvin.

He was quoted saying, “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.”

“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.”

When asked if the possibility of creating a self-standing celebrity brand was possible, Mr Bower admitted, “They can only do so by being sensational and by doing something.”

“They are constantly searching for new things to do. But it always comes back to the royals. Whether it is flying back for the Jubilee so they might be photographed with the Queen - that went wrong.”

“Or, alternatively, it is dumping on the Royal Family in Harry's forthcoming book. But eventually, it is going to be a damp squib.”
