THE pompous little statement from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Hollywood PR department says it all.
They “remain committed to their duty and service to the UK,” it read, “as evidenced by their work over the past year.”
To us, it looks as if their work over the past year has been securing lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify.
That is indeed duty and service but it looks like it is mainly duty and service to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
If you do good works — which they do — they will always be overshadowed by the money-making deals that race smartly alongside them.
No one cares about the unseen, unglamorous works they undertake when they live such a high-profile lifestyle.
Harry and Meghan moved from a huge mansion in Vancouver Island to a house in the Hollywood Hills and then to a multimillion-dollar mansion in Mendocino County — all in the space of a year.

Their PRs should be sacked for putting out such a statement which looked like a jibe at the Queen’s life of unselfish service.
I am sure it wasn’t, but it won’t gain them any friends either inside or outside of the Royal Family.
We know their philanthropic work makes a difference. We know Harry’s Invictus Games is wonderful but we don’t need to be reminded about it. We can see for ourselves.
