LA-based royal commentator Kinsey Schofield suggested the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should “capitalise” on the fact that Tom Bower and Valentine Low’s royal books are not yet widely available across the pond. Ms Schofield claimed Harry and Meghan’s reputations have “taken a hit” in Britain due to Mr Bower’s biography which came out last month.
The host of the To Di For Daily royal podcast made the comments as she discussed the Sussexes’ upcoming visit to the UK.
Ms Schofield told the Daily Star: “There is so much opportunity for them in America.
“Why are they not capitalising on the fact that Americans haven’t been hit with Tom Bower or Valentine Low’s allegations yet?
“I think their reputation has really taken a hit in the UK thanks to Bower’s book – Revenge: Meghan Harry and the war between the Windsors – and the Sussexes have been suspiciously silent.”
Investigative author Mr Bower makes a series of explosive claims in Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War Between the Windsors.
The provocative biographer’s previous books have featured Boris Johnson, Jeremy Corbyn, Charles, Tony Blair and Richard Branson, among others.
Meanwhile, royal journalist Mr Low’s book Courtiers is due to be released in September.
Mr Low, who is royal correspondent for The Times, first reported bullying allegations made by palace staff against the Duchess of Sussex, which she denies.
It comes as Harry and Meghan are returning to Britain next month to carry out charity visits.
The couple, who are living in California after quitting royal duties in 2020, will also travel to Germany as part of the trip.
A spokesman for the couple said: “Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to visit with several charities close to their hearts in early September.”
The couple will head to Manchester for the One Young World Summit, an event which brings together young leaders from more than 190 countries, on September 5.
They will make their next stop in Germany for the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year to Go event on September 6.
They will then return to the UK for the WellChild Awards in London on September 8.
Their visit to the UK will be the first time they have been back in the country since the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in early June.
It comes as Harry is due to release his tell-all memoir later this year with the Royal Family bracing for fresh revelations.
The Duke is also embroiled in a legal battle with the Home Office over police protection for his family while in the UK.
