A royal analyst, Richard Fitzwilliams, has described the couple’s attacks on the royal family as “very very damaging” alluding to Harry and Meghan’s interviews and charges that have thrown the monarchy into disarray.
“The Sussexes’ activities, when they’ve spoken out, have been very, very damaging.”
There’s no doubt about that, according to Fitzwilliams, who spoke to the Daily Star.
“She has realised how unhappy they were, but speaking out in the way they have is a totally different thing,” the royal export stated, when asked if the Queen would have taken Prince Harry’s comments personally.
In their infamous Oprah Winfrey interview, which aired in March, Harry and Meghan made a series of disparaging statements about the royals.
They said that when Meghan was suicidal, royal staff refused to help her, and that a relative made a discriminatory remark regarding their son’s skin color.
Last month, Harry compared royal life to “a mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo” in a podcast interview.
There have recently been claims that Meghan Markle is “fearful” of losing her title as Duchess of Sussex, which she received when she married Prince Harry in 2018.
In his Apple TV documentary series on mental health, The Me You Can’t See, which he co-produced with Winfrey, Harry slammed his father once again.
“My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I, ‘Well it was like that like that for me so it’s going to be like that for you’” he explained.
“That doesn’t make sense.
“Just because you suffered doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer, in fact quite the opposite – if you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences you had, that you can make it right for your kids.”
So far, the pair has refrained from criticizing the Queen directly. According to reports, if Harry did so, Charles would “close ranks.”
According to a source: “Meghan told Harry that they need to tone down the attacks on the royal famiLy – she’s afraid they’ll take away their royal titles, which would be a PR disaster.
“Right now, she’s inundated with offers, and that’s in part to being a Duchess.”
In the new mental health documentary The Me You Can’t See, Harry highlighted Charles’ parenting style.
“Charles will want to engage,” a “royal source later told the Daily Mail, “but it’s fair to say what Harry has said in both interviews with Oprah has been seen as very callous within the family.”
Prince Harry’s intention to attend the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee festivities next year, according to a source, would be a ” fresh headache ” for the Royal Family.
The Queen’s 70th year on the throne will be commemorated with a four-day Bank Holiday from Thursday, June 2 to Sunday, June 5, 2022, which will include festivities at Buckingham Palace.
