King Charles III has reportedly had enough of his talkative and vindictive son, Prince Harry, and daughter-in-law Meghan Markle. Following the release of their bombshell Netflix series, “Harry & Meghan,” the prince has moved on to the next phase: his tell-all book, “Spare.” In two significant interviews, Prince Harry blamed King Charles and his older brother, Prince William, for leaking humiliating stories about him and his wife. He called the royals liars for hiding behind their family motto and blamed them for planting stories against him and his wife.
The Duke of Sussex expressed his frustration with his family’s lack of interest in reconciling, saying they have “shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile” and that he would like to have his father and brother back. King Charles has so far remained silent, but with the interviews for “Spare” and the book itself, a new tactic is expected to emerge. Royal commentator Christopher Anderson has speculated that “simmering rage” will lead King Charles to remove Prince Harry and Markle’s titles, deny their biracial grandchildren their titles, or even ban the family from attending his coronation ceremony.
According to historian David Starkey, however, King Charles may be playing a long game and letting events take their course. Nonetheless, the release of Prince Harry’s book and his interviews may push King Charles to take a more drastic course of action. The royal family’s future remains uncertain in light of these revelations.
- Prince Harry explained: “And every single time I tried to do it privately, there have been briefings and leakings and planting of stories against my wife and me.”
- Prince Harry shared: “You know, the family motto is ‘Never complain, never explain.’ It’s just a motto.”
- The Duke of Sussex also shamed his family by saying they have no interest in reconciling with him and Markle and added: “They’ve shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile. I would like to get my father back. I would like to have my brother back.”
- According to historian David Starkey: “I don’t think they matter much—look at the opinion polls today. I mean, a near majority of people not only say they don’t much like them, but they actually want them stripped of their titles.”
- Royal commentator Christopher Anderson said: “But Charles also has a temper, and I’m afraid the hurt he felt has now turned to simmer rage.”
