Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Hollywood ambitions have suffered setbacks, with commentator Esther Krakue attributing their decline to a failure to adhere to the Royal Family’s age-old strategy of “never explain, never complain.” Krakue suggested that the Sussexes’ star quality has diminished, leading to their classification as two of the “biggest losers” in Tinseltown for 2023 by The Hollywood Reporter.

The couple’s Archewell Foundation faced losses of almost £9 million in donations, contributing to their perceived decline in popularity. Krakue emphasized the importance of understanding the fundamental characteristics that have sustained the Royal Family’s enduring reputation, noting the Windsors’ commitment to the “never explain, never complain” rule.

The commentator argued that the Sussexes’ deviation from this strategy and a perceived lack of commitment to service and duty have caused their star to wane. Despite earlier multimillion-pound deals with Netflix and Spotify, as well as high-profile interviews, Krakue suggested that the couple’s failure to align with the Royal Family’s approach has led Hollywood to question the value of associating with them.

While acknowledging Prince Harry’s successful memoir and the positive reception of the 2023 Invictus Games, Krakue maintained that the decline in the Sussexes’ reputation has impacted their ventures. She highlighted the drop in donations to Archewell as indicative of the diminishing appeal of “brand Sussex.”

Contrary to the couple’s claims of success, Krakue asserted that 2023 has not been a favorable year for the Sussexes, suggesting that their reputation has solidified in a way that may hinder their future impact. She concluded that the public perception of the couple affects their ability to achieve the desired impact, emphasizing the importance of aligning with public sentiment.

Despite these claims, recent polling by Redfield & Wilton for Newsweek indicated that Harry and Meghan are more popular in the US than they have been throughout the year.
