The Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid their respects by laying a wreath and flowers at an obelisk in memory of two fallen Commonwealth soldiers. They then released several photographs of the event, which showed Meghan in a black wool coat and Harry in his Army uniform, along with all his medals. Critics said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’ decision to release these photographs was “attention-seeking” and “tacky”, while others suggested they could have just released a picture of the wreath itself.

Ms Gripper read out comments from listeners, some of whom criticised the Sussexes’ decision, branding it “cringeworthy” and “staged”, while others defended the couple, saying it was respectful and appropriate for Harry as a veteran himself.

Mr Myers said he was “shocked” by the sheer number of photographs released and said the main criticism is that it “once again had been made about themselves”.

He suggested that they could have taken just a picture of their backs and another of the wreath they laid.

Instead, the numerous pictures of the Sussexes themselves may have taken away from their message, which is one of giving thanks to those who gave their lives.

Mr Myers said: “Perhaps they shouldn’t have been in the photos.

“If you’d just had their backs and another picture of the wreath they’d laid, I think that would have been appropriate.

“It’s just, I think, the criticism labelled at them saying that it once again had been made about themselves is a case to answer unfortunately.
