Prince Harry, Meghan Markle new website is ‘exploitative in the extreme’ | Pro Hub of News

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have once again sparked controversy with the launch of their new website, replacing their previous Archewell foundation site.

Having stepped back from their roles as senior working members of the royal family in 2020 to pursue “financial freedom,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex swiftly secured lucrative deals with streaming giants Netflix and Spotify, estimated at £100 million.

The quiet unveiling of Sussex.com, featuring Meghan’s coat of arms and discussing their children’s royal titles, has drawn criticism from experts, who deemed it “very exploitative.”

While Buckingham Palace was reportedly not consulted before the quiet rebranding, which occurred just days after King Charles’ cancer diagnosis, royal historian Hugo Vickers expressed disapproval, stating, “It goes against everything the Sussexes promised they would not do.”

Vickers emphasized that the couple’s use of royal titles and associations, including the royal coat of arms and their children’s titles, constitutes exploitation, regardless of the parameters considered. He asserted that the average person would identify the website’s creators as part of the royal family, branding their actions as “exploitative in the extreme.”
