• Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's brand allegedly got damaged after the Platinum Jubilee
  • Dan Wootton said the recent event showed the Sussexes needed the monarchy and not the other way around
  • Prince Harry and Markle allegedly didn't show up at one event in the Guild Hall, upsetting some of the guests

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle probably got upset after the Queen's Platinum Jubilee because it damaged their brand, according to royal expert Lady Colin Campbell.

Princess Diana's former biographer and author of "Meghan and Harry: The Real Story," spoke with Dan Wootton for GBNews. During her appearance, she weighed in on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's feelings after joining the Queen's Platinum Jubilee over the weekend.

The pair kept a low profile while in the U.K. They quietly left Sunday while the royal family celebrated the finale by making a second balcony appearance. Wootton commented that the royal event showed the Sussexes "need the monarch more than the monarchy needs them."

"Oh, that's always a fact," Campbell told the host. "I think what was really apparent is that they're a busted flush."

She added that in her understanding, Prince Harry and Markle were "absolutely spitting bricks." The royal pundit was convinced that the royal couple got "upset" because "they're very concerned that their brand has been irretrievably damaged by the fact that the whole world now knows that they are not only third-tier royals."

Wootton also mentioned speaking to one of the guests of an event in the Guild Hall where various royals were working in different rooms, and the guests got "incredibly disappointed" because they had no royal in their room. They were reportedly told by the organizers that they didn't have a royal with them because Prince Harry and Markle didn't show up.

"They didn't bother to show up because they couldn't contain their rage," Campell added.

She noted that when Prince Harry and Markle arrived at the Thanksgiving Service and were welcomed with boos, they already expected it, so they allegedly brought their paid supporters to cheer on them. Campbell believed that the Sussexes were not pleased after receiving the booing and cold-shouldering at the cathedral.

The royal expert noted that only Zara Tindall talked to the couple. Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall didn't speak with them. There was also no interaction between the Sussexes and the Cambridges.

Meanwhile, YouTube personality Trevor Coult MC, an author and former military serviceman, claimed he was told by sources that the senior royals avoided speaking to Prince Harry and Markle because they were aware that the two were wearing microphones. International Business Times could not independently verify this information.
