America’s enthusiasm for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has been put under strain following their string of bombshell interviews, a royal expert has claimed the couple have ‘lacked decorum’.
As Prince Harry, 38, and Megan Markle, mark three years this month since they began their new life in California, journalist Kinsey Schofield said the couple had now been ‘snubbed by Hollywood’.
Speaking to Fox News Digital, the royal correspondent opined: ‘I do think that Harry and Meghan expected more support from Hollywood than they have recently received.’
Recent months have seen the release of the Netflix docuseries, and the Duke of Sussex’s bombshell memoir Spare.
She continued: ‘I think Harry and Meghan had an amazing opportunity to elevate themselves and actually be Hollywood royalty, but their decorum is making people think twice about the association’
America’s infatuation with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is fading, according to the opinion of one royal expert, who claimed the couple are being ‘snubbed’ by Hollywood following their bombshell revelations
The express.co.uk speculated that the couple thought they would be welcomed by Hollywood but Harry’s claims about the Royal Family have stopped this from happening.
Harry and Meghan did not receive an invite to any of the 2023 BAFTA events, with claims that they were ‘not welcomed’ at the 2023 BAFTA Tea Part hosted in Los Angeles last month.
However, the Prince and Princess of Wales were in attendance at the main event in London, with royal fans thrilled to see the couple on the red carpet.
Harry and Meghan however are allegedly receiving fewer invitations to glamorous events as A-listers fear they will become the focus of attention.
It has been speculated that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle expected to have more support from their Hollywood friends when they moved to California three years ago
Since the release of their explosive Netflix docu-series, exasperated by Prince Harry’s memoir Spare, the Sussexes popularity in the US has been fading
The couple, who were previously hugely popular in the US, sunk in the polls after Prince Harry launched a fresh attack on the royal family and revealed a range of intimate details such as how he lost his virginity to Sasha Walpole.
Prior to publication, Harry had a favorability rating of +38, according to a December 5 poll of 2,000 US voters.
That plunged to -7 by January 16, pollsters Redfield & Wilton found – while Meghan Markle dropped to -13, compared to +23 on December 5.
The lack of welcome from the Hollywood industry was further pushed by the Sussex’s inclusion in the satirical cartoon South Park.
Last month, an episode depicting the ‘Prince and Princess of Canada’ – a young royal couple who loudly beg for privacy while drawing attention to themselves aired.
The red-headed prince and his wife, who wears the exact same dusty pink outfit that Meghan donned for Trooping the Colour in 2018, are seen promoting the prince’s book – Waaagh – the cover of which strongly resembles Harry’s memoir Spare.
The episode is filled with swipes at the Sussexes, with main character Stan branding their cartoon equivalents the ‘dumb prince and his stupid wife’, while Kyle complains about the private jet parked outside their home.
Kinsey Schofield told GB News: ‘What they’re saying is, these two are not sincere people, they say that they want their privacy while going on every television show, writing books, doing six hours of Netflix.
‘They broke it down and said…. they’re not very likeable… people are tired of them.’
TV presenter Nick Ede, who claimed to have had a friendship with the Duchess of Sussex, 41, before she met Harry claimed that the couple did not realise they wouldn’t be accepted as ‘Hollywood royalty’ when they moved to California.
Speaking to the express.co.uk he said: ‘They’re kind of quite far down really in that pecking order, and I think that’s been an issue with them, in that sense of stepping down.
‘I think the thing is that you forget that in Hollywood, royalty isn’t somebody with a title.
‘It’s JLo, it’s Sharon Sone, it’s Beyoncé, it’s the Kardashians. That’s their royalty.’
