Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been blasted as two-faced for “deploying their titles for money-making ventures or brand building” by a royal expert.
The Sussexes have taken swipes at the Royal Family since moving to California and been generally critical of the way of life in the public glare.
Following a bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview, Harry again lifted the lid on life for the Windsors in a chat with Dax Shepard on his American Expert podcast.
He said he realised it wasn’t the life for him in his early 20s and he didn’t want his children to grow up that way.
But the Sussexes' continued use of their royal titles in business deals despite it being so “toxic” has been criticised by royal pundit Daniela Elser.

She said: “"A clear pattern has emerged this year: Harry and Meghan very vocally criticise the royal house, the world is a bit shocked, royal reporters chunter, pearls are clutched, palace critics’ cite the Sussexes’ criticisms as even more proof of how broken the whole concept is, and then the couple goes back to announcing spiffy new business deals and using their Duke and Duchess titles.
"The million dollar question, or should that be the $180 million question, here is – would Harry and Meghan be snagging such stratospherically lucrative contracts if they were just Mr and Mrs Mountbatten-Windsor?”
During Harry’s Dax podcast he said that Meghan had told him: “You don’t need to be a princess. You can create the life that will be better than any princess.”
Yet Elser says that Harry is not backing up that concept in practice and since quitting the UK they have signed many lucrative commercial deals, that include with Netflix and Spotify.
She said: "Harry might have told the crowd during an appearance for his eco-travel initiative Travelyst last year 'Just call me Harry' but in the commercial world the duo seem more than happy to be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex when Hollywood or Silicon Valley come calling with their capped teeth and big cheque books.
"This disconnect between the Sussexes’ continued, bruising criticism of the palace and their continued willingness to deploy their titles during money-making ventures or brand-building public appearances is just becoming even more and more blatantly obvious."
