Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were very popular when they were still working royals. However, several have noticed that they were losing their spark, with one royal biographer saying they were not as relevant as they used to be.
Meghan Markle And Prince Harry No Longer The Power Couple They Assumed To Be
Royal author and biographer Cele Otnes spoke with Express UK about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. She weighed in on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's future years after they stepped down from their royal duties, and for her, they are simply "irrelevant."
"They're not really the power couple they thought," she told the outlet as quoted by Geo.TV.
Otnes shared two key moments she believed served as proofs of the Sussexes' being irrelevant.
"I think there are two telling moments for that - one they weren't invited to Barack Obama's 60th birthday party, that huge thing had in Massachusetts," she explained. "And two, I don't believe they were invited to the Academy Awards, which for Megan would be her, you know, deal. So they're really, for the circles they want to be in, and I don't think they're that relevant."
Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Are 'Becoming Less Significant As A Couple'
Otnes was not the first to say about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's reduced relevance. Prince Charles' former biographer Jonathan Dimbleby echoed the same sentiment.
The veteran broadcaster claimed that Meghan Markle led her husband "by the nose." However, he felt that they were not heading in the best direction.
"He’s entering a sort of vortex in which they will become less and less significant as a couple," Dimbleby was quoted by Perth Now as saying. "As she gets older, as he gets older, they will matter less because the celebrity on which they trade will become less valuable."
Dimbleby was sad thinking about Prince Harry's future. The royal expert still had some fond memories of Prince Charle and Princess Diana's youngest son.
"And it’s a very great shame because when I met him he was absolutely charming – a lovely, lovely young guy. Not the brightest in the world but filled with generosity of spirit," he said of Prince William's brother.
