Meghan and Harrys influencer plan dreaded by William as couple cash in

Prince Harry risks cementing the rift with his brother if he continues down his current path of selling the royal brand while publicly slamming his family.

That’s the view of one royal expert, who thinks the next steps taken by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will define their future relationship with William and the wider Royal Family.

"What do they do next? That's a question Prince William is dreading the answer to," royal commentator Duncan Larcombe told OK!

"Ultimately, they have to find a way to do their work in LA while not trading on the royal brand.

"Prince Harry hasn't exactly been subtle.

"He's revealed to the world that he pretty much hates his family and the whole system is rotten to the core, but by continually talking about the royals, they're cashing in on the brand.

"If they spend their whole careers selling that royal brand, they'll never speak to William again."

The couple's plans to trademark their business and charity empire recently hit a bump in the road.

They’ve applied to have their Archewell Foundation fundraising operation and podcast firm Archewell Audio protected by United States company law, but the US Patent and Trademark Office has told them the applications need clarification. They have six months to respond, otherwise their applications will be scrapped.

It’s not the first time the Sussexes’ business plans have come unstuck. They had wanted to use the Sussex Royal brand as a non-profit operation, but Buckingham Palace banned them from using the word “royal” when they quit official duties and moved to America.

"Meghan and Harry have signed some very lucrative contracts and are clearly committed to doing a fairly substantial amount of work to get them off the ground,” Duncan told OK!

"Most of Harry's time is going to be taken up by his mental health work. He's going to be mentoring people and undoubtedly speaking out more about his own experience.”

Duncan believes Harry, 36, could lash out again when bombshell bullying allegations against his wife come to the fore. The claims are that she drove out two personal assistants and that staff were "humiliated".

It’s not known who will be called to give evidence in the Buckingham Palace probe, but the reaction of Harry and Meghan could be crucial in defining the pair’s long-tern relationship with Harry’s wider family back home.

"What's really going to be really interesting is how they navigate their fallout with the Royal Family,” said Duncan.

“There's an outstanding bullying claim against Meghan that will heat up over the coming months, and we now know that Harry's best from of defence is to attack."

In response to the bullying allegations, a spokesperson for the Duchess said she is "saddened" by the complaints, "particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself".
