I like Harry and Meghan, but the timing of this and some of the tone-deafness has me shaking my head. You can't really control the press, particularly the tabloids and the paparazzi, but you can do things to get ahead of the narrative, like time your news carefully. Like, they released their statement at the worst possible time. It's a post-holiday January, traditionally a very slow news time. They haven't been in the public eye much. And they did it during the work week. Come on, man. If you don't want a big newsplosion, then release your statement on Friday afternoon of a holiday weekend. Nobody will care about your news by Monday or Tuesday.
It does appear as though some of the saner news sources are coming out with stories saying "this is all Harry," because duh.
On a side note: The Sussexes apparently visited the Hubb Kitchen and put photos from the visit on their Insta. I will note that Meghan needs a haircut. Her hair is looking a little frazzled, perhaps the travel, the stress, the post-baby fallout?
