Royal expert Neil Sean warns royal couple that they 'need to seriously think' about future of their brand

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have received a stark warning from Neil Sean, NBC royal correspondent.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have signed multimillion-dollar deals with streaming channels Netflix and Spotify since stepping down as senior royals but NBC royal correspondent Neil Sean has claimed the couple cannot "afford bad PR".

Neil Sean said: "On a serious note, I do think Harry and Meghan do need seriously think about where they're going to go with their brand moving forward."

"They can't afford such bad PR which is relentless. We're talking about the birthday video, The Bench book, the New York trip. A lot of people say, 'you're contributing to that'" said the Royal expert.

Neil Sean claimed: "I would say I'm just supporting the facts, a lot of these things were not successful."

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry visited the Global Citizen Live concert in Central Park at the end of September.

Their royal visit to New York also included a meeting between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with New York mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Kathy Hochul.

The Royal commentator Neil Sean said: "It's very difficult for Harry and Meghan because being ex-royals and people wanting to meet them, they cannot really go undertake as an official royal visit.

"The problem a lot of people felt was in New York, people were confused" said the NBC royal correspondent.

Neil Sean has asked: "Was it a royal visit or wasn't it?".
