Eric Schiffer, from the US firm Reputation Management Consultants, described the couple’s implicit support for Joe Biden as such.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex face a backlash for their political meddling by the United States within months of their arrival in the country from the United Kingdom.

They fled Britain six months ago, complaining that they felt unable to “prosper”, to reach California and sign a $ 150 million mega deal with Netflix.

But now they have alienated a part of the citizens of the United States by launching into politics and supporting the Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden.

Their public relations nightmare came when it was revealed that Meghan and Harry enjoyed the most expensive royal engagement last year, racking up nearly a quarter of a million pounds on a trip to Africa together.

The couple headed to the United States months later, but their popularity there falters after interfering in American affairs.

Recently, they urged voters to reject “hate speech” in clear incitement to Donald Trump.

That prompted the president to tweet that he was not a “fan” of Meghan, who appeared from her home in a video Wednesday on America’s Got Talent television show.

Trump also joked: “I wish Harry the best of luck because he’s going to need it.”

Eric Schiffer, from the US firm Reputation Management Consultants, described his entry into politics as “deadly stupid.”

He said: “They have already alienated a large swath of Americans from the red states, who will now see it as a disconnected liberal elite.”

“If you’re trying to build a brand based on people’s support, which Meghan and Prince Harry are apparently trying to do, that’s insane.”

“There is a danger that Meghan will be seen as a legitimate hypocrite who is only using her new celebrity status to attack the president.”

Aside from Meghan and Harry’s televised blow to Trump, she has described him in the past as “misogynistic” and “divisive.”

But they have been labeled “narcissistic” when the president’s supporters responded.

Conservative American author PJ O’Rourke said: “We fought a war in 1776 to keep the views of the British royal family out of American politics.”
