After a difficult few days for Meghan and Harry during Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex in exile released two new photos through the account of photographer Masan Harriman, taken on September 5, when the One Young World Conference took place in Manchester.
The photos were taken days before the UK monarch’s death, but came to light after Buckingham Palace shared the first official photo of King Charles III with the Queen Consort and the Princes of Wales, an exclusive Crown media sync. .
Harriman snapped two photos with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moments before taking the stage at One Young World in Manchester, where Markle delivered a speech to thousands of people. In the color photo, the couple look into the camera as Prince Harry holds hands with his wife.
There is a second photo, in which the couple appears in profile, looking at the horizon, in a black and white photo they appear hand in hand.
Across the Atlantic, the Dukes of Sussex are looking to gain notoriety after the official portrait of the Kings and Princes of Wales makes it clear that they are now the British Crown.
With the period of mourning over the death of Elizabeth II over, the photo was not the only indication that Meghan and Harry are practically outside the royal family. We’ve seen this since the refurbishment of the official home page, which details royal engagements. Charles III’s team placed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the bottom of the list, above deposed Prince Andrew, accused of sexual abuse and embroiled in serious allegations in the Epstein affair.
Meghan and Harry face major decisions about their future careers and, as revealed in media such as Page Six, will try to delay the start of the series they are launching on Netflix, which will premiere later this year. The couple has already signed a multimillion-dollar contract with the streaming platform, which wants to release the series as soon as possible. Though the signed papers add up to $100 million for the couple.
On the other hand, Prince Harry was planning to publish his autobiography in the coming months, but he would draft it to avoid hurting sensibilities after British newspapers indicated this was an explosive story that would put the royal house on the ropes.
