Meghan Markle, 40, and Prince Harry, 37, have been heavily criticised since stepping down as senior members of the Royal Family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been called for speaking about their time as senior royals, flying to New York for the weekend and signing multimillion-dollar deals with streaming giants Netflix and Spotify. NBC royal correspondent Neil Sean has claimed the couple cannot “afford bad PR”.
He claimed: “On a serious note, I do think Harry and Meghan do need seriously think about where they’re going to go with their brand moving forward.
“They can’t afford such bad PR which is relentless.
“We’re talking about the birthday video, The Bench book, the New York trip. A lot of people say, ‘you’re contributing to that’.
“I would say I’m just supporting the facts, a lot of these things were not successful.”

It comes as the pair have been accused of “confusing the public” with royal visits.
Harry and Meghan went to New York to attend the Global Citizen Live concert in Central Park at the end of September.
While in the city, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also met with New York mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Kathy Hochul.
Mr Sean has warned the couple of scheduling conflicts with the Royal Family if they were to travel to the same places.
“What a lot of people are also asking is this going to become confusing for instance when Prince Charles alongside William and Catherine do make those trips over to America?
“Simply because at the same time if Harry and Meghan choose to pop up and do their media blitz, people are really confused.
“If Harry and Meghan want to undertake these visits and host such high profile events, they must inform the palace in advance.”
The couple visited the city’s memorial for the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center.
