Harry, Meghan struggle to remain relevant while Charles, William get taste of limelight: Expert
A lot has gone down between the monarch and other grandson, Prince Harry, in recent years.
The COP26 climate change conference wraps up this week and despite the Queen missing it due to doctors’ concerns, she managed to make an appearance virtually and extolled the virtues of her son, Prince Charles, and grandson, Prince William.
When the Queen left Harry and Meghan out of her COP26 speech, the couple bounced back the following day, issuing a statement about their own climate concerns. But it made little impact to those it matters most.
In fact, a royal expert claims the royals have beaten Harry and Meghan at their own game because they were in Scotland, walking the walk, not just talking the talk.
According to Camilla Tominey, the California couple are struggling to remain relevant which, in turn, has sparked an identity crisis.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are in self-promotional mode which puts them in a problematic situation when it comes to being relevant during Cop26,” Tominey told the Express .
She added that Harry and Meghan “growing their bank balance,” which could become problematic as they try to pass off themselves off as “global change leaders.”
Meanwhile, the other Royal Family members are legends when it comes to speaking out about the environment, particularly Charles. Tominey says he and William have stolen the “limelight” from Harry and Meghan, relegating them to the “sidelines.”

A lot has gone down between the monarch and other grandson, Prince Harry, in recent years. For the longest time, he was the Queen’s golden boy who could do no wrong — even when he did things wrong.
But since marrying Meghan Markle, and their ensuing split from the Royal Family, move to the U.S., and multiple mind-blowing interviews, the tide has clearly turned.
Yes, the Queen still refers to Harry and Meghan as important members of the Royal Family but according to Tominey, there’s only so much they can do as outsiders.
“She’s always insisted that Harry and Meghan remain much-loved members of the family, but when you come down to business and the business of royalty, actually they’re now outside the tent.”
