The Duchess of Sussex has left the Duke alone in the spotlight

Missing Meghan Markle has left Harry to work alone during the promotion of his controversial memoir Spare, with reports suggesting she was wary about the Duke’s solo project.

The couple, who have famously always liked to appear as a pair, have not been spotted together as Harry promotes his book.

Towards the end of 2022, Harry and Meghan were shown in a new light as their Netflix docu-series was released, and the couple also appeared at a glamorous event in New York – where Harry joked he was sharing “date night” with audience members who paid one million dollars for a ticket.

However the Prince has been working solo since Christmas, with wife Meghan keeping out of his way as he promoted his memoir.

Sources close to the couple say the Duchess was concerned about the book, issuing concerns about whether or not Harry was making the right decision.

One source told The Telegraph: “Is this the way she would have approached things? Possibly not.

“But she will always back him and would never have got involved in promoting such a personal project.

“This was about his own life, his own journey and his own perspective.”

However, her decision to shy away from the spotlight has been met by wider criticism.

Royal biographer, Angela Levin, told GB News the Duchess had “left him for the lions,” questioning her decision to let him go it alone.

Talking to Nana Akua, Ms Levin said: “Where is Meghan? People have asked where she was and she’s not there. She’s left Harry completely alone.

“Some people are saying she’s done that so he can absorb all of the spotlight… But I don’t think that at all.

“I think that she can’t not bare to be in the spotlight.”

She added: “What sort of wife would let their husband go through with that, with those terrible things about him weeing in his pants the night before he met her for the first time.

“He looks so awful in so much from the book that, actually, I think it’s a real error she didn’t help him.

“She’s just left him to the lions.”

The Duke of Sussex’s controversial memoir has become the fastest-selling non-fiction book in the UK since records began in 1998.

The memoir, which hit the shelves on January 10, includes claims that the Prince of Wales physically attacked him and teased him about his panic attacks, and that the King put his own interests above Harry’s and was jealous of the Duchess of Sussex and the Princess of Wales.

The couple’s success doesn’t stop there, after Netflix announced the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s explosive recent series is its second-highest ranked documentary ever.

Harry & Meghan began its release on December 8, and saw damaging claims levelled at the royal family throughout six episodes.
