Meghan Markle and Prince Harry both released videos before and during Prince William's in-person tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales, at the 2024 Diana Awards. Shortly before the 25th annual prizes were handed out, the Duchess of Sussex launched a lifestyle brand called American Riviera Orchard on Instagram.

This was followed by the Duke of Sussex, with Meghan, dropping a video announcing the winner of their $100,000 NAACP — Archewell Foundation Digital Civil Rights Award, which timed with the Prince of Wales' speech.

"Bad timing," royal expert Pandora Forsyth dished. "I thought that as soon as it happened last night, I thought surely this would be an event on both of their calendars."

She added: "Let's say that they don't talk, and they don't share calendars anymore because they're not two separate royal households, I would have thought that the Diana Awards and the Diana Legacy Award last night would have just been something that would have been crossed over."

This insight comes amid reports that suggest the two brothers have not spoken a single word to one another since Queen Elizabeth II's funeral in September 2022. Both have been said to be mired down in a feud with one another for over four years.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex 'do nothing by accident,' according to a royal expert.

"I'm really, really surprised at this because Harry was also involved in it and has been involved with it for many years," she added. "I mean, it was only a few years ago, he was up on stage with his brother William. I mean, how times have changed. But yeah, really bizarre timing. We know that she was going to be launching a lifestyle brand in terms of what it might have been, well, I guess now we know."

She further quipped: "You can buy homeware items and cookery items if you so wish. And this will tie into Netflix as well, where we'll probably be seeing Meghan cooking if that takes your interest too."

She then observed how "a big project like this would have had a date in the diary for many, many months" when pointing out it the move was "deliberate" on the part of the Montecito duo.

Prince Harry an Meghan Markle left the royal family four years ago.

Other analysts feel that this assessment is apt considering that "Prince Harry would never forget or miss anything that had to do with his mother," according to a royal insider.

"The Sussexes in my opinion do nothing by accident," royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams told an outlet. "Timing is often absolutely pivotal. We found that out one way over the weekend and we've now just been reminded that there may be more shots in their locker than some of us thought. And it's no accident."
