Meghan Markle travelled to New York with Prince Harry for his speech at the UN General Assembly. The Duke of Sussex spoke of the dangers of climate change, the coronavirus pandemic, “weaponising lies and disinformation”, the war in Ukraine, and abortion laws in the US while marking Nelson Mandela International Day. Royal expert Neil Sean has since claimed the reception to Harry’s speech was not a “good look”.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Mr Sean claimed: “It must have been very difficult for Harry.
“It kind of looked like a British pantomine that hadn’t sold out.
“All those empty seats is never a good look.
“According to the UN it wasn’t really that well publicised. Rubbish. This was put into the world’s media.

“You are not permitted to do that when you are a member of the Royal Family.

He added: “People around the world are saying, ‘Prince Harry can say what he wants’. He can’t. Royal protocol dictates you cannot get political that’s the rule book.
“Give away the title, hand it back. You can do whatever you want then. This is the blurry line between being a celebrity and being royalty.”
