Prince William and Charles to target key issues ‘belonging’ to Meghan and Harry | Royal | New
Prince William and Prince Charles will probably begin to “take over” causes particularly dear to the hearts of younger generations who have been defended by Meghan and Prince Harry, according to American expert in brand and reputation management Eric Schiffer. The California commentator noted that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been able to appeal to Millennials and Gen Zers with their approach to the causes they care about – including equality and protection of the environment.
But he believes key members of the royal family are about to start working to regain the limelight and own these issues.
Environmental protection and equality are causes he expects Prince Charles and in particular William to address more.
In addition, he expects the royal family to focus “on understanding and listening to the sensibilities of the younger generations.”
Mr Schiffer told Express.co.uk: “Charles, when it comes to the environment, is extremely well placed because he was forward thinking and visionary on this issue years ago.
“And he’s pointing it out now because he recognizes it’s a big issue that matters.
“While Meghan and Harry have had the benefit of being more responsive to the needs of young people, I expect the monarchy – in the form of William and Charles – to harmonize more and have a greater affinity in his messages and actions so Meghan and Harry have been owners for a year. “
When asked if the UK-based royal family would make an effort to take over the limelight from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Mr Schiffer replied: ‘Yes, and these problems… they will start to take them back. .
“Because they allowed them to be owned, and they’re going to start taking back the property.

“They have the option of having cameras on them.”
This dynamic, Mr Schiffer noted, will be of great benefit to the target audience on which the Sussexes and the British Royal Family are focusing their attention.
He said, “It’s great for Millennials and Gen Z, who want champions of these things.”
As Mr Schiffer noted, Prince Charles has devoted much of his work to lifting warnings about environmental causes for over 50 years.
