Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are attempting to create their own “royal court” in the US, according to a royal commentator. The comments come amid a slew of media appearances by the Duke and Duchess – particularly by Prince Harry – which left one commentator asking “what was the point?”

In recent months, Prince Harry has been in the spotlight. Before and after the release of his memoir Spare in January he gave numerous explosive interviews on primetime television. In December of last year, Meghan and Harry released a six-part Netflix series describing their relationship and eventual exit from royal life.

“I ask myself this all the time. What was the point for Harry and Meghan? Were they trying to make themselves look better? Were they trying to make themselves more popular than the royals? Are they trying to recreate their own royal court in the United States?” asked a royal commentator and founder of popular YouTube channel the Royal News Network who goes by Brittany.

She added: “Number one, yes they do definitely want to create their own royal sphere in the United States. Obviously, we do not have a monarchy here and nor do we want one, so they’re welcome to live here like other royals do but don’t make yourself a royal of the United States – huge difference there.”

She cited the Megxit deal which saw Prince Harry and Meghan Markle leave the Royal Family for North America.

“I think they are just trying to recreate what they wanted, what their vision was for themselves that they couldn’t have in the UK, in the US,” she said.

The host of the show added: “They could not get their way, I think at the end of the day that was their big anger point. They were not going to get their way.”

Brittany pointed to the role the couple wanted to play in the Commonwealth, claiming Meghan wanted to be “Queen of the Commonwealth”. She also claimed the Sussexes wanted to “supersede” the Royal Family in popularity.

During the Meghan and Harry’s separation from the rest of the Firm, dubbed Megxit, the pair appeared to want to become hybrid royals who were financially independent but still represented the Queen.

On their now defunct website, the couple touted “progressive” new roles which would “continue to carry out their duties for Her Majesty the Queen, while having the future financial autonomy to work externally”.

However, in 2020, Buckingham Palace released a statement making it clear Meghan and Harry were “required” to step back from royal duties.

It appeared the couple failed to negotiate a half-in, half-out Megixt deal and in 2020 they moved to Montecito, California with their son Archie, completely stepping back from royal duties.

Since then, the pair have engaged in numerous media endeavours, including the now famous 2021 interview with Oprah. The couple released a Netflix documentary in December 2022 flush with never-before-seen footage and photos.

Arguably the biggest bombshell to date, however, was the release of Prince Harry’s memoir Spare in January 2023 and the multiple interviews the Prince gave both before and after the book hit the shelves.

The book contains numerous allegations against the rest of the Royal Family and details Prince Harry’s life, including his time in Afghanistan and his drug use.
