Since retiring as royalty last January, the Sussexes have signed a series of lucrative deals with people like Netflix and Spotify. They have also been accused of hypocrisy for taking private jets, which emit a notoriously large carbon footprint, while preaching the importance of climate change.
its Archewell The Foundation has also been accused of asking people to share their personal stories of “compassion” to fund business ventures.
On its website, the foundation said: “Share your story for a chance to appear. Tell us: What does compassion mean to you?
“How has you, or someone you know, acted on compassion in your community?
“Or, describe a time when you felt connected to friends, family, or your community, despite the distance.”
He also went on to suggest that the nature of his efforts is “too commercial.”
He added: “I think they are getting to the point where it could be deadly from a brand perspective because it will start to raise questions about their true intent and alignment with some of these causes that are part of the launch.”
It comes as a royal insider said the couple struggled to spark significant interest after their fake royal tour in New York.
Royal expert Jonathan Sacerdoti argued that regardless of how Meghan, 40, and Harry, 37, dress, their trip to New York was not a royal tour.
While speaking to Express.co.uk, he claimed that the duo were on a “fake royal tour or working holiday.”
He added that the pair may have been filming as part of their next Netflix project, distancing themselves even further from the standards of the royal tour.
Sacerdotti also commented on how much attention the duo receives and whether they can successfully capture the attention of the American audience.
Sacerdoti speculated: “I think it’s interesting because I think Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have targeted an American market.
“Now that they are not part of the working royal family, it was fascinating to see them participate in that kind of fake royal tour.
“It was basically just a vacation in New York and it turns out that from the hidden bugs and the cameraman following them, who was not known to most of the press, it appears that it was a business trip.
