Speaking on Channel 5’s latest royal documentary, Meghan at 40: The Climb To Power, which aired on Saturday July 24, the US-based royal journalist explained how despite the numerous ongoing commercial ventures Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have through lucrative deals with Spotify, Netflix and Apple – the pair will sadly never achieve the level of popularity they could have on Royal trips such as meeting heads of state. In a brutal takedown, the journalist went on to point out how the California-based pair have in fact cut off their chance at more fame with their decision to leave the royal family, despite their efforts to promote their own Sussex brand.
Ms Pearson explained:“They have struck a number of deals – we know Netflix, they had a podcast, a deal with Spotify…
“Meghan has had a children’s book released, Harry has taken on a job in mental health at a big start-up in Silicon Valley.”
But in a slapdown of the royal pair, the journalist stressed these ventures pale into insignificance compared to the attention they drew from their time in the royal family.
The journalist said: “However none of that will ever have the attention of then worked the way their tour of South Africa did.

“[Or] the way their wedding did.
“They will not be meeting with heads of state. They will not be having a global platform from which to have a voice!”
She added how despite having a “charitable foundation” which could draw more positive attention in a similar vain Royal trips did, she warned how “so do a lot of celebrities”.
“There is now way they won’t have keenly felt the difference between being a celebrity and being a royal.”
Meghan Markle is letting Harry 'be the baddie' says royal expert
The comments come as it was revealed by royal author and expert Tom Quinn how Meghan Markle had an “unholy scrap” with the royal family over what royal name her and Prince Harry could use for their commercial interests.
A ferocious argument reportedly took place as the pair attempted to massively capitalise on the royal name in the USA alongside attempts to construct a brand after their departure from the royal family.
Speaking to the Channel 5 ‘Meghan at 40’ documentary, Mr Quinn explained: “They wanted to be Sussex Royal! Again this is an American culture thing coming in via Meghan.
“She, having crossed the Atlantic, began to think ‘we have got to be a brand’.
“That terrible word that the Royal family would always think ‘they’re talking about brands, its awful!’”
He added how the pair “wanted to be Sussex Royal” in order to put the name on their product but “then they were told they could not be Sussex Royal and they couldn’t be HRH’s”.
The royal expert explained: “It was the Royal family again saying to them because clearly Meghan and Harry clearly hadn’t checked… You can’t just carry on with the tittles you and when you were working members of the royal family!’”
While royal historian and commentator, Ed Owens stressed: “Any form of commercial venture risked bringing the royal family into disrepute if it didn’t fit with the monarchy’s remit of public operations back in Britain.”
