Anna Whitelock on Harry and Meghan: “I think the line that they’re walking and going to have to walk very carefully is between royalty and celebrity.
Historian Anna Whitelock says "brand Diana became bigger than that of the Royal Family." The late princess became one of the most photographed women in the world and her husband Charles reportedly became jealous of the attention she received. During her marriage and after her separation from Charles, Diana continued to attend high-profile events and had a circle of A-list friends from Elton John to Freddie Mercury. Speaking on Yahoo UK's 'The Royal Box,' Anna says: “Harry and Meghan are in this situation where actually they are significant to the royal brand in terms of generating interest, but actually not significant to the monarchy in terms of its future. “I think the line that they’re walking and going to have to walk very carefully is between royalty and celebrity. “There is very much a sense with the instagram and the way in which they are cultivating themselves as a sort of social media couple, they may end up diverting too far away from the royal brand and become celebrities in their own right.” Watch the full episode of Yahoo UK’s show ‘The Royal Box,‘ here .
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are keeping details around their baby's birth private. The couple have also decided to forgo the media photocall outside the hospital, with their newborn. Royal commentator Omid Scobie says that one of the reasons could be because she is "quite nervous" about the birth. He tells Yahoo UK's 'The Royal Box: "What we’ve heard from sources is she’s quite nervous, it’s her first baby, the nerves are really quite high at the moment and so for her to be able to actually cut out what makes it so stressful is probably quite a relief for her and Harry." Historian Anna Whitelock also says that the after-birth photocall doesn't allow for any complications, if there were any. Watch the full episode of Yahoo UK’s show ‘The Royal Box,‘ here .
