William ‘fears Harry and Meghan's antics are detrimental to royal family'

Some of Meghan and Harry's decisions haven't followed tradition

Prince William worries Meghan and Harry are acting "detrimentally to the monarchy," according to a royal expert.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have faced much criticism since marrying last year, with many claiming they've 'snubbed protocol' with their privacy demands.

According to Ingrid Seward, the Duke of Cambridge might be "bothered" by Meghan and Harry's attempts to move away from tradition.

In Channel 5 documentary William & Harry: Princes At War?, which aired last night, Ingrid said: "It wasn't done in a very royal way, or the way we'd come to expect.

"But then Harry's excuse was: 'Well, I'm a private person.' But you cannot be royal and sixth in line to the throne and be a private person.

"I would think that it might bother William a little bit, because he might see the way that Harry and Meghan do things as being detrimental to the business of the monarchy as a whole."

The royal couple were recently criticised for taking a private jet to travel to Nice, France.

The reason for their travel is unknown but, according to The Sun, they boarded a 12-seater Cessna aircraft which can cost over £20,000 to hire per flight.

But the pair have come under fire as they've encouraged the public to be more environmentally conscious in speeches and on their Instagram account.

At the weekend, Labour MP Teresa Pearce called out Harry and Meghan's hypocritical lifestyle choices, and that he should "lead by example".

She told The Sun: "Given the position they have taken publicly about being responsible on climate change, this does seem an anomaly which they should look at.

"It’s up to all of us to cut our carbon emissions, and the number of flights we take a year. That is really important — and someone as high profile as that should lead by example."
