Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are used to constant headlines about their lives. But in the last few months something has changed. Public opinion has changed dramatically and the behavior of Sussex seems to be the cause.
The couple's critics insist that Harry and Markle do not understand their duties as members of the royal family – that they behave like kings only when they feel like it. Can their reputation be saved or have Sussex done too much to harm public opinion?
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a lot of controversy
Harry and Meghan disrupted British citizens throughout the summer with their endless list of controversies. The latest is the hypocritical use of private jets. They flew to four private jets within a week, shortly after they told the British they should do anything to save the environment. The worst thing is how Harry behaved after challenging her for her hypocrisy.
"We can all do better, and although no one is perfect, we all have the responsibility for our individual influence," he said at an event in Amsterdam. "The question is what we do to make up for that."
Instead of humility, Harry apologized and pretended that it was no big deal. According to an insider source from Best Life, "they do not help themselves with this kind of behavior, as I say it, rather than the way I do it."
And that seems to be a statement people put on The world, but especially the United Kingdom, agrees. Harry and Meghan quickly lose their favor with their behavior.
Do Prince Harry and Meghan act like kings if they feel like it?
Royal fans have noticed that Harry and Meghan act more like celebrities than kings, and nobody is impressed. "In fact, they seem more determined than ever to ignore conventions and only behave like royalty if they like," said Best Life's source.
It seems her celebrity behavior began when Harry and Markle dealt with the birth of Archie. While earlier royal births were always introduced on the steps of the hospital, Meghan was determined to keep all the details of her birth a secret.
The public really began to get angry as she continued secrecy around Archie's baptism, an event that has always been public.
In another example of Sussex's failure to respect the royal tradition, they rejected the Queen's invitation to Balmoral for the second year in a row. It's a long royal tradition that the family comes to Balmoral every year to Queen Elizabeth, but Harry and Meghan do not seem to care.
Some thought it was because the couple was too busy with their various projects. But then it turned out that Meghan has time to fly to New York to watch Serena Williams at the US Open.
"Meghan has made it clear that it is more important for her to maintain her relationships with her celebrity friends than to fulfill her role as queen," said the source for Best Life.
Are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle more of a liability than an asset?
With all the controversy and negative opinions now surrounding Harry and Markle, many wonder if they are more committed to the royal family than to an asset.
When Meghan joined the family, royal fans were thrilled. Markle was seen as a modernizing force for the royal family, but now fans believe she does not care about the traditional or lawful duties of the royal family at all. Citizens in the UK are turning against the Sussexes and it does not look good for the rest of the royal family.
Harry and Meghan must change their ways or do something drastic to regain the favor of the public before it's too late. Failure to do so could be detrimental to the royal family.
