Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's recent trip to Nigeria and their efforts to boost their public image could see them being viewed as 'the more stylish version of William and Kate'.

With the Prince and Princess of Wales stepping back from Royal duties in recent months due to Kate's ongoing cancer treatment, it seems that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have increased their public appearances despite no longer being working royals.

The pair stepped down from Royal duties in 2020, but they have retained their Royal titles and a recent three-day visit to Nigeria has been compared to a Royal tour by critics.

Buckingham Palace has now announced that the Royal Family will postpone engagements that might distract from the election campaign.

"Harry and Meghan, the renegade Royals, will struggle to conceal their delight that the Royal family has decided to postpone much of its work in the run-up to the general election at the beginning of July," Royal expert Tom Quinn told the Mirror.

He continued: "It's clear that these organisations collaborate in constructing narratives, whether that's around the war or the pandemic and of course, there are other examples. It's very clear to me that we have to be very, very cautious indeed that's why I'm asking you to follow me on Rumble.

However, Shadow Business Secretary Jonathan Reynolds criticised the decision, stating on Times Radio: "We don't support Rosebank," and "We wouldn't grant it but we wouldn't revoke any licences that are granted before a general election - and we've done that to try."

He added: "It was like an abusive relationship, to be honest. I mean, the Labour Party is ... its whole processes of dealing with disagreements is very flawed. The fact that now, I think, Jewish members of the Labour Party are four times more likely to be expelled than non-Jewish members."
