The royal couple were accused of trying to self-promote.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are again at the center of the scandal. This time, the couple were accused of trying to promote themselves on the Day of Remembrance of the Fallen British Soldiers. The couple came to the Los Angeles National Cemetery to lay flowers, but the pictures taken were considered by some to be simply offensive. The fact is that Memorial Day is a revered event in Britain. On this day, ordinary citizens pay tribute to the soldiers and officers who died on the battlefield. The commemoration is held annually on November 11 and calls to preserve the memory of those who gave their lives for the good of the country and the Queen.
Just outrageous — treating Remembrance Sunday like a PR opportunity, & trying to steal headlines from the real royals doing their duty back home. https://t.co/3V3NXkICdU

However, the Dukes of Sussex were accused of trying to steal the public’s attention and using this event for their own purposes. On Twitter, Good Morning Britain host Pierce Morgan stated that Harry and Meghan had “dressed up nicely” on purpose, as they knew they would be filmed. Some bloggers supported Pierce: “Dress up and call a fashion photographer, shame.”

Do such claims have any basis? Many people know that Morgan has not liked this couple for a long time and often tries to prick them with caustic and provocative remarks. But there were also defenders of the star couple. As Morgan’s opponent rightly remarked: “Harry served his country. How many of you? As a military man, he has every right to be there and honor the memory of his comrades in arms – just like all of us, citizens of our country. ” The Duke and Duchess only personally wanted to pay homage to those who gave their lives for them. Moreover, just the day before, the royal grandson had a falling out with his grandmother, who refused to ask him to lay a wreath at the Cenotaph war memorial on his behalf.
