Their three-day tour, during which they met politicians and school children, is said to have all “hallmarks of a royal visit”.
However, insiders revealed that the palace fears the Sussexes have set up a “rival court” against William and Kate.
A source said: “There will be some very nervous looks from the palace because Harry and Meghan are effectively following the royal model.
“The palace will take care of the causes it supports and the people it hangs out with do nothing to embarrass the queen.
“Kate and Wills show how the work of royals is done. You won’t be impressed that Harry and Meghan are acting as quasi-royals, courting the public after claiming they quit on privacy concerns.
The couple’s biographer, Omid Scobie, said the Sussexes are planning an “era of visibility” this fall.
Harry and Meghan were on the bill last night for the Global Citizen gig with stars like Coldplay and J.Lo, which sold tickets for up to £ 850.
It hopes to encourage vaccine exchanges with developing countries. It is believed the couple would like more tours to promote their Archewell Foundation and charities.
