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.
