Harry and Meghan plan more “royal-style” tours after New York – which is a concern for the Palace.
The couple headlined a star-studded Covid Vaccine Gala in Central Park last night.
His three-day tour, in which he met with politicians and school children, was said to have all “characteristics of a royal visit”.
But insiders have revealed that the Palace fears the Sussexes have set up a “rival court” for William and Kate.
A source said: “There is going to be some very nervous going out of the palace as Harry and Meghan are effectively following the royal model.
“The palace will be concerned about the cause they support and the people they hang out with will do nothing to embarrass the Queen.
“Kate and Wills show how working royals are made to work. They won’t be impressed by Harry and Meghan’s campaigning after acting as semi-royals and claiming to be leaving for privacy.”
The couple’s biographer Omid Scobie has said the Sussexes are planning an “epoch of visibility” this autumn.
Harry and Meghan were on the bill for last night’s Global Citizen gig, which featured stars including Coldplay and J.Lo, where tickets sold for up to £850.
It hopes to promote vaccine-sharing with developing countries. It is understood the couple would like more tours to promote their Archwell Foundation and charity causes.
