Meghan and Harry set for ‘very busy week’ as they fight for limelight after snub

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have a "very busy week" lined up as they battle to stay in the limelight following a snub from the Queen.

Her Majesty omitted the Sussexes from her speech at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow this week, instead heaping praise onto her late husband Prince Philip, her son Prince Charles and his eldest Prince William.

Speaking to the Express, body language expert Judi James described it as a "glaring omission" in what was "one of the most emotional public messages ever from the Queen".

In the wake of the so-called snub, Harry and Meghan announced a climate pledge of their own, promising to cut the carbon emissions of their Archewell Foundation charity to net-zero by 2030.

A statement also said that they will be "focusing" their investments "in support of a low-carbon economy".

Now, Newsweek Royal Correspondent Jack Royston has said that Harry and Meghan have a "very busy week" ahead, all while the working royals prepare for week two of COP26, reports the Express.

Royston explained that the Sussexes have an event with Wired Magazine followed by the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Awards in New York on Wednesday.

He added that Meghan also has an appearance with the New York Times’ Dealbook audio series lined up for Tuesday November 9.

The news emerged as it was claimed that Meghan personally called Republican senators to ask them to back a move to add paid family leave back into a £1.3 billion social spending and climate policy bill in the US.

The mother-of-two reportedly called West Virginia Senator Shelley Moore Capito who first thought it was a fellow senator because the number was blocked.

She told Politico: "I’m in my car. I’m driving. It says ‘caller ID blocked’.

"I thought it was Senator (Joe) Manchin.

"His calls come in blocked. And she goes, 'Senator Capito?' I said, 'Yes?' She said, 'This is Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex'."

Meghan then reportedly called moderate Republican Susan Collins.

She said: "Much to my surprise, she called me on my private line and she introduced herself as the Duchess of Sussex, which is kind of ironic.

"I was happy to talk with her, but I’m more interested in what the people of Maine are telling me about it."
