Sheer PR phoniness of Harry and Meghan's 'personal' act of remembrance is remarkable

Meghan and Harry at Los Angeles National Cemetery on Remembrance Sunday (Lee Morgan/PA)

It looks as perfectly staged as a Hollywood film set. Meghan and Harry walking hand in hand through the serried rows of simple white headstones of fallen Commonwealth soldiers.

She is dressed almost head to toe in a long black coat; he wears a dark suit, his service medals and a poppy. In other pictures we see them laying flowers and standing with heads bowed in front of a wreath.

We’re told this is a personal act of remembrance. Harry. Meghan. Oh, and at least one professional photographer there to record it so that millions of people around the world can pore over this beautifully choreographed private moment.
