‘Signal’ Prince Harry is sending with coronation announcement
There will undoubtedly be plenty of speculation over why Prince Harry and Meghan have decided for the Duke to return to the UK alone.
However, one PR expert believes that the reason the Duke is returning alone is that the Sussexes are taking the “route of least conflict” with their coronation decision.

Prince Harry reputation a ‘shambles in royal quarters’
The news comes after a PR expert speculated that Harry’s reputation in royal quarters is a “shambles”.
It was recently alleged that Harry picked up a cruel ‘nickname’ from royal aides back in 2020.
“There was a point when officials joked Harry was the victim of Stockholm syndrome, and he was Meghan’s hostage, but now most just feel Harry has turned his back on everything he has known,” royal author Robert Jobson alleges in his new book.
Speaking exclusively to ED!, PR expert Jordan James of UnlockdPR, said: “These alleged comments reveal a hidden animosity towards the couple and could show that Prince Harry’s reputation is clearly in shambles in royal quarters.”
“If these comments are true, they paint a sad picture of how the once mighty Prince Harry has fallen from grace,” he then said.
