A royal commentator has claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle need a meeting with the Queen in order to be commercially successful in the US.

This comes as speculation has been mounting over when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will bring their daughter Lilibet over from their US base to meet the Queen.

No photos of the couple’s new baby have been released since she was born on June 4.

Harry last attended a public meeting with other Royal Family members when he returned to unveil a statue dedicated to the memory of his late mother Princess Diana, at the start of July.

Now, speaking on the Mail’s Palace Confidential podcast, consultant editor Andrew Pierce claimed maintaining their connections with The Firm will be crucial for the Sussexes’ continued success.

He suggested: “They know that their only saleability in the United States is their connection to the most famous woman on the planet – the Queen.

“That’s why they’re desperate to see her. It’s all about product Harry, product Meghan plc.”

The Mail’s Royal correspondent Richard Eden agreed that a meeting was going to be necessary for all parties.

He suggested: “It will happen. Harry and Meghan need it. They do need to keep up that royal connection. They are a family. They do want a christening.

“Meghan does not speak to any members of her family apart from her mother, so it makes sense to have the christening where any family can come, and that would be Harry’s family rather than hers.”

Regardless, it was also suggested that even if a meeting does take place, the public will be unlikely to be made aware of the contents of the discussion.

The Mail’s Royal Editor Rebecca English predicted that any meeting is likely to be a “private family get-together” rather than in the public spotlight.
