Meghan Markle’s solo outings without Prince Harry “speak volumes”, a crisis management commentator has claimed.
The Duchess of Sussex recently stepped out without the Duke of Sussex at Variety magazine’s Power of Women gala in Los Angeles.
Eric Schiffer, who runs one of Hollywood’s leading crisis management firms, suggested that these solo trips by the duchess are intentional.
He said: “It’s clearly time for a relaunch of Brand Sussex, and Meghan’s solo appearance speaks volumes about the direction they are headed.

“The past year hasn’t been great for them.
“It doesn’t matter to studio executives if you are a duchess or a doorman, it’s about the bottom line, and Archewell needs a hit badly.”
According to the commentator, the “can-do attitude” that Meghan displayed at the Variety event will guarantee her success.
Schiffer also told The Mail: “She hit that red carpet like the pro she is and she worked the room.”
