Meghan and Harry’s Response to a Week of Palace PR Chaos

How Meghan and Harry Counterprogrammed a Week of Palace PR Bedlam

After Kate Middleton caused confusion worldwide with a photoshopped Mother’s Day portrait, “sources close to” Meghan Markle and Prince Harry commented to Page Six. “This isn’t a mistake that Meghan would ever make,” the insider remarked. “She has a keen eye and freakish attention to detail.”

On Thursday, Meghan made her anticipated return to Instagram with an enigmatic account named American Riviera Orchard. Without revealing the brand’s purpose, a spokesperson for the duchess confirmed its legitimacy.

The account featured a soft-focus, sepia-toned video of Meghan in a rustic kitchen, stirring a bowl to the tune of “I Wish You Love” by Nancy Wilson. It signals a fresh start for the former actress known for her lifestyle blogging. An application filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office hints at forthcoming products like tableware, cookbooks, textiles, and more.

Meghan’s California venture contrasts sharply with Windsor’s atmosphere. Kate’s prolonged absence due to “planned abdominal surgery” has fueled speculation that royal duties continue without King Charles III. Amid reports that Kate felt “awful” after the photograph debacle, Prince William maintained his duties solemnly.

He attended the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey with Queen Camilla and later addressed climate change initiatives. He also attended a funeral at St. James’s Chapel and visited a youth center in London, where he remarked, “My wife is the arty one.”

The divergence between the once-dubbed “Fab Four” was evident in Harry and William’s separate appearances at the Diana Award’s 25th-anniversary celebration. William attended alone, honoring recipients of the Legacy Award and acknowledging his wife’s contribution to their charitable endeavors.

Meanwhile, Harry joined the event virtually later in the evening, commending the award winners for their dedication to his mother’s legacy.

William departed the event around 8:30 pm, while Harry initiated a video call with the award winners at midnight. He expressed admiration for their work and gratitude for upholding his mother’s legacy.
