As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly consider "more trips" to promote their foundations, Buckingham Palace is said to be considering "intense damage limitation discussions" due to fears the duo is upstaging them.

In light of the absence of Kate, Princess of Wales, from royal duties, royal author Tom Quinn believes that "for now they [the royals] are going to be overshadowed."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in Nigeria, May 10, 2024.

"So far as many world leaders are concerned, Harry is and always will be a member of the royal family," he added. "Believing their trip to Nigeria was a huge success, Meghan and Harry are already planning future trips."

The author further revealed how the Duke of Sussex felt that there was "a sense of injustice" in the British monarchy, which helped him to develop his: "It's us against the world," mentality when he and Meghan left the royal family in early 2020.

He continued: "Feeling driven in on themselves has actually worked to their advantage as it gives them an increased sense of mission and a sense that they need to stick together and be strong in the face of their enemies."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex toured Nigeria from May 10-12, 2024.

In the wake of the Nigerian "tour," a source close to the royal rebels shared: "There is already a lot of talk and excitement in Ghana, everyone is so keen for Harry and Meghan to come and experience the great culture and warmth. Several top names have already visited Ghana in recent years from Ed Sheeran, Naomi Campbell and One Direction's Liam Payne. Idris Elba, who DJ'd at Harry and Meghan's wedding is a regular too, he is part-Ghanaian and loves spending time 'back home.'"

They further added: "Harry certainly won't be short of people to show him around and they will certainly roll out the red carpet for him, drafting in some of the finest Afro-beats performers to welcome him and his family."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2022's 'Harry & Meghan.'

In their December 2022 Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan, author Afua Hirsh described the Commonwealth of Nations as nothing more than "Empire 2.0" in its third episode. The completely voluntary organization consists of 56 nations that were once within the British Empire but decided to remain "closely associated" with the U.K. once the empire was dismantled in the mid-20th century. 14 member nations choose to keep the British monarch as their head of state.

An anonymous former courtier to Queen Elizabeth II said of the trip: "So, as the King and Princess of Wales battle cancer, what we have here is Harry and Meghan's covert way of trying to undermine and plant seeds of dissent throughout the African nations in the Commonwealth, which is a free and voluntary organization."
