Prince Harry Accused Of Exploiting Princess Diana's Image In Most Recent Act Of Defiance
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle unveiled their Archewell website at the end of 2020. The much-awaited revelation of their project has had many tongues wagging after their numerous commercial ventures in connection to their foundation was announced following the launch of the website.
The first thing a visitor will notice on the site is the glaring photo of a young Prince Harry and his late mother, Princess Diana. Behind this is another photo, and this time around, it is young Meghan Markle being hugged by her mother, Doria Ragland.
Royal experts have come forward, airing out their disbelief at Prince Harry’s choice of photograph. Apparently, experts believe that this will further sink Harry’s relationship with Prince William.
Phil Dampier, a royal expert, shared with Daily Mail UK that he is concerned about the Duke of Sussex’s use of his mother’s image on the website.
“I think William will be slightly worried if Harry uses Diana for any of his charitable or commercial ventures without consulting him, and I don’t think he would be happy if Harry appears to be exploiting his mother’s iconic status,” Dampier explained.
Furthermore, Dampier expresses that the tension between the brothers regarding Harry’s decision to include Diana in their foundation would worsen at the fact that Prince Charles, Harry, and William’s father was disregarded in the site’s launch.
According to the royal expert, there is a reason behind the couple choosing to only show themselves with their mothers. He believes that Meghan’s estranged father, Thomas Markle, is the main driving reason behind the decision.
Princess Diana’s image on Harry and Meghan’s Archewell website is in no way a problem. Still, if no consultation was done between the royal brothers, it could spark another rift between them.
When asked by the Daily Mail how Prince Harry and Prince William’s relationship is looking, Dampier shares that the brothers have not patched up their differences despite reports claiming that they did.
Sources have shared to Dampier that the brothers are not in communication a lot and have been constantly in each other’s throats if they are.
Although this is dreading news, there is a high chance that Prince Harry and Prince William will reunite in the UK for the celebration of the supposed 60th birthday of the late Princess Diana.
Before their eventual separation, the brothers had commissioned a statue of their mother to be put up at Kensington Palace’s Secret Garden to celebrate her 60th birthday.
