Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been accused of flaunting their "brand operation" in the faces of Prince William and Kate Middleton, claims a royal expert.

Meghan has recently unveiled her new venture, American Riviera Orchard, while Harry has been active with interviews and events, even as Kate and King Charles grapple with health concerns post-cancer diagnoses. The Princess of Wales is reportedly "deeply upset" by the Sussexes' high-profile activities during her medical leave.

William has demonstrated his commitment to family, prioritising support for the Princess of Wales and their children amidst these trying times. Yet, royal biographer Tom Bower suggests that William is under "pressure" and has continued to fulfil solo royal duties.

In contrast, Harry and Meghan are energetically promoting her business, the Invictus Games, and forthcoming Netflix collaborations. Bower contends that William must be irked by "constant sniping from California" and is probably "furious" with Harry's conduct, reports the Mirror.

Bower remarked: "Not only is there the pressure on William, but also the constant sniping from California. I'm sure he's furious with Harry, he's behaved appallingly."

The Royal Observer reports that claims made by Prince Harry against the Wales family have been branded as "outrageous, rude, unfair" and causing "a real struggle" for the future King and Queen by the author. The writer touches upon the timing of Meghan's American Riviera Orchard launch amidst the formation of the "brand Sussex", observing: "While they're establishing this so-called brand Sussex, the family here is going through torment. After Charles' diagnosis, Harry came over for half an hour, and that's it, he's done nothing else."

Furthermore, he noted: "I can imagine that Kate and William are deeply upset by having the Sussexes' brand operation rubbed in their face while they're going through this tragedy."

This comes on the heels of a royal aide insisting that Kate "needs the space and privacy to recover right now" despite her "a clear commitment" to carry out her public duties.

Meanwhile, she is said to be "excited" about a project with potential benefits to the UK economy amounting to towering £45.5 billion annually. Earlier this week, her Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood unveiled a report outlining five areas in which businesses, regardless of size, can provide support to under-fives and their caregivers.

Kate, last year, assembled the Business Taskforce to contribute to her "vision for the future" concerning early years child development. A high-ranking Royal aide revealed to MailOnline: "The Princess of Wales was the driving force behind the business task force. She has been kept up to date since the inception of the task force and she has read the report and been briefed on it.

"This is a clear commitment she has made throughout her life of public service that this will be focus. That will continue when she returns to work. But we have been really clear that she needs the space and the privacy to recover right now. She will return to work when she has had the green light from doctors."
