A royal expert is speaking out this week to say that the British royal family is tired of the “distraction” that is Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, and that they will likely turn their back on the couple.
“The Oprah Winfrey interview, let’s not make any bones about it, went down like a lead balloon,” royal expert Russell Myers told the UK’s TalkRadio. “As far as Harry and Meghan are concerned, I think they will be left to sort things out on their own.”
“They’ve been a distraction for the most part for the family,” he added. “There will be quite a lot of dissatisfaction within the camp, and it remains to be seen whether they will be brought back in.”
Myers went on to say that Harry went to his grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral last month with “his tail between his legs” because of his attack on the royals.
“Certainly, I’m sure that Harry was a bit sheepish seeing the rest of his family,” Myers said. “The rest of the royal family are very, very united in trying to get back to business.”
Host Kevin O’Sullivan then chimed in to say that Harry’s father Prince Charles is said to be in a “cold state of fury” over his younger son, and unwilling to “forgive, forget, heal the rift.”
“If that is his state of mind, I think the British people will be behind him every step of the way. I think most people think ‘That guy Harry does not deserve to be forgiven,’” O’Sullivan said.
While some are predicting that the British monarchy will end with Prince William, Myers instead believes it will “enter a new dawn” when he becomes king.
“I don’t think it’s the last straw for the monarchy,” Myers said. “I think it’s an evolution rather than a revolution.”
This comes after Harry issued a call for “empathy and compassion” while speaking at the star-studded VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World
“None of us should be comfortable thinking that we could be fine when so many others are suffering. In reality, and especially with this pandemic, when any suffer, we all suffer,” Harry said. “We must look beyond ourselves with empathy and compassion for those we know, and those we don’t. We need to lift up all of humanity and make sure that no person or community is left behind.”
