An expert in the Royal Family believes that Prince William and Kate Middleton will be feeling “anxious” after TIME magazine released the pictures of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s photoshoot for their 100 most influential people issue.

The striking images of the Royal couple were taken in their California mansion, with Harry and Meghan offsetting each other by wearing black and white respectively.

The photos have already sparked some debate about the body language of the couple with some feeling the images make it look like Meghan has more control in the relationship.

However, that is not the only talking point from the photos.

Royal family expert Duncan Larcombe has told OK! that he believes William and Kate will have some concerns about the images creating a popularity contest between the two couples.

Larcombe says: “Kate and William are in danger of being dragged into a transatlantic popularity contest.

“They will feel anxious over the cover and everything Harry and Meghan do as it always seems to reflect on them.”

He adds: “William and Kate are concerned about absolutely everything that comes out of America in regards to Harry and Meghan, especially Harry’s tell-all warts and all memoir that’s gonna hit the shelves sometime next year. They have no control over the narrative.”

It remains to be seen if William and Kate will actually be concerned or if things in the Royal Family will continue in their usual chaotic fashion but there is no doubting that these TIME photos have caused quite a stir.
