The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been boosting their new independent profile with the help of new advisor, Sara Latham. The royal couple have launched a new Instagram account, partnered with Oprah Winfrey and released a birthing plan. However, the pair feel like “the world is against them” according to a source.
The source told The Daily Telegraph: “Harry and Meghan wanted to build their own team and didn’t want their staff to be working for the Cambridges as well.
“They wanted autonomy and see it as a huge disadvantage to be in with all the others at Buckingham Palace.
“There is a sense that sometimes the Sussexes think the world is against them.
“Harry has always complained about being sidelined by William but now I think they see this as an opportunity to really spread their wings.”
The Sussexes have partnered with Ms Winfrey in documentary series on mental health.
She explained the pair will be “co-creators” and joint “executive producers” on the project.
Harry had previously said: “I truly believe that good mental health – mental fitness – is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self.”
The pair also announced they will be keeping their birthing plans private.
The two announcements coincided with the appointment of their new PR guru, Ms Latham.
Harry reportedly headhunted the former advisor to Bill and Hillary Clinton following negative press surrounding Meghan.
He instructed Prince Charles’s former spokesman Paddy Harverson to help recruit Ms Latham, according to The Daily Telegraph.
She was also involved in Obama’s election campaign.
