Hiring a Hollywood firm to represent you for PR while a member of the royal family is unorthodox to say the least.

"Senior palace courtiers have been left bemused over the last few months that the couple have been ignoring advice from their own highly professional team and will instead listen to outsiders in Hollywood," they said.

Buckingham Palace officials said the couple had hired the company to help launch their foundation in the States.

Sunshine Sachs are said to be guiding Harry and Meghan on plans for their new Sussex Royal charitable foundation, as well as the launch of Travalyst – a new sustainable travel initiative.

Speaking at the launch, ITV reports that Harry addressed the couple's recent use of private jets and said: "We can all do better, and while no one is perfect we are all responsible for our individual impact."

He added of the recent controversy: "I spend 99 per cent of my life travelling the world by commercial. Occasionally there needs to be an opportunity based on a unique circumstance to ensure my family are safe and it’s genuinely as simple as that."
