Prince Hary’s own royal biographer claimed that the photos of Harry and Meghan at the Los Angeles National Cemetery were “incredibly phony”. Speaking on The Royal Beat on True Royalty TV, Angela Levin said the photos resembled a “fashion shoot”.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry released photographs of their visit to Los Angeles National Cemetery on Remembrance Day.
The photo series shows the Duke and Duchess of Sussex laying down wreaths and looking solemn in the cemetery.
ITV’s Chris Ship tweeted the photos, writing: “Prince Harry and Meghan have marked #RemembranceSunday by visiting the Los Angeles National Cemetery today.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wanted to ‘personally recognise’ the day in their own way.”

However, talkRADIO host Dan Wootton said that the photos were “tasteless and classless”.
Mr Wootton suggested that Meghan and Harry’s photos were a ploy to push the Queen off the front page of papers.
He told The Royal Beat: “Working for , all of our focus that day was on the Queen, on Kate, on Charles, on William, on Camilla.
“These pictures dropped at 8pm when all the papers are deciding what their front pages are.
“The direct result is that it pushed off, or reduced the photos of Queen and William.
She added: “It looked as if you were using the concrete tombstones as props to create an impression.”
Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan echoed these remarks earlier his week, saying Meghan and Harry had turned Remembrance Sunday into a “PR stunt”.
He said: “My God, they’ve even turned Remembrance Sunday into another self-publicity stunt. Have they no shame?
“Just outrageous – treating Remembrance Sunday like a PR opportunity, & trying to steal headlines from the real royals doing their duty back home.”
