Harry and Meghan are facing ‘huge problems’ as their opportunities ‘don’t exist’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are facing "huge problems" that could threaten their media brand, an expert has warned.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently had their lucrative Spotify deal pulled by the streaming giant, and rumours have since circulated that their contract with Netflix could suffer a similar fate.

Speaking to New Magazine, royal biographer Tom Bower said the pair were struggling to keep their brand "reputable" in the face of adversity.

"They're finding it very, very hard to keep their brand reputable," Bower explained.

"They're constantly having to defend themselves and they're grasping for opportunities that don't exist anymore."

Bower added Harry "has got huge problems" and slammed Meghan, saying she doesn't have "a brand to sell".

He stated the ex-royal duo are "both facing problems" in their careers as their contracts dry up.

Initially Harry and Meghan captured the public's attention with their numerous tell-all interviews, bombshell Netflix documentary and Harry's memoir, Spare, all detailing their experiences in the Royal Family.

But as claims against their relatives have appeared to dry up, the pair have been forced to look for inspiration elsewhere.

Speaking to the Daily Star, PR expert Edward Coram-James of Go Up warned the couple's "scandal-led" approach would eventually lead them to a dead end.

"The only undisputed major media successes that the Sussexes have seen in the past few years have been scandal-led," he said.

"The problem is that many only tuned into these out of voyeurism, in the same way that many watch Celebrity Big Brother.

"They love to see the inner workings of celebrity, especially when scandal is involved. But the Sussexes have probably run out of road in the scandal space."

And it appears Coram-James' prediction may, unfortunately, be proving true.

Last month a source at Netflix reported the streaming giant was considering ending its partnership with the couple, rumoured to be worth an eye-watering £78m, adding the couple had "ruffled feathers" among bosses at the on-demand platform.

The speculation comes following reports Meghan was urged to ditch her husband and "go it alone" in a bid to save her career.

"Meghan is distraught over this Spotify snub and the fallout that has followed – it’s totally knocked her sideways," a source told Closer Magazine.

"Her team have warned her that there's 'no future' with Harry and that she needs to start working on her individual projects rather than being seen as one half of 'Brand Sussex'.

"They feel that if Meghan does more on her own, she’ll have more opportunities to save her career."

The Daily Star has contacted Harry and Meghan's representatives for comment.
