Royal expert claims that Prince Harry could be to blame for Megxit, as he did not prepare Meghan Markle for royal life.
- Prince Harry could be mostly at fault for Megxit, according to royal expert Robert Jobson.
- The author of “Prince Philip’s Century” claims that the Duke did not prepare Meghan properly for her royal responsibilities.
- Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could no longer be considered as senior royals following their scandalous interview with Oprah.
According to Robert Jobson, author of the biography “Prince Philip’s Century,” Prince Harry “didn’t want to” put his wife off by telling her how hard it is to be a member of the Royal Family.
As per Daily Mail, the author believes that the Duke is, in fact, to blame for Megxit – his and Meghan Markle’s stepping back from the royal duty and moving to California.
In an interview with Page Six, Jobson said:
“He’s not the sharpest guy, but maybe he didn’t want to explain it. It’s hard work being a member of the royal family. People think it’s not but it is. It’s not glamorous and maybe she didn’t fancy that after at all.”
Due to Prince Harry’s lack of guidance, Meghan was not entirely aware of how The Firm worked.
Despite claiming the Duke was mostly to blame for the chain of events during and after Megxit, Jobson said that Markle had little excuse for not preparing herself before becoming a royalty. He noted:
“It’s up to you to do your own homework if you want to marry into a prestigious family.”
The royal expert also said that understanding the pecking order and accepting their place would have spared them the scandal. He said:
“When she saw that she had the little house and William and Kate were the number one couple she probably didn’t understand that and thought, “Well we can do better than this and start commercializing the royal family,” well frankly that’s not acceptable. I blame Harry really because he knew the story but he wanted his cake and to eat it and you can’t do that.”
After moving to their California mansion, Harry and Meghan were on their way to become richer than the Royal Family.
The couple signed multi-million deals with the streaming giants Spotify($25 million) and Netflix($105million).
At the beginning of March, during their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, they revealed shocking royal secrets, including that Prince Harry was cut off by his family.
“My family literally cut me off financially and I had to afford security for us. But I’ve got what my mum left me and, without that, we would not have been able to do this. I think she saw it coming.”
Following Megxit, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may no longer be considered senior royals.
This comes as Prince William is said to have a hard time forgiving his sister-in-law for attacking his wife, Kate Middleton.
According to a source, Prince William “cannot countenance the way the Duchess of Sussex has treated his wife.” The source explained:
“Kate attempted to try and help Meghan understand the responsibilities of royal life, but her efforts were constantly misinterpreted. But to name Kate so publicly during the Oprah interview as the person who made her cry was beyond the pale. Meghan would have been acutely aware that Kate is powerless to fight back.”
Another royal source said:
“Following Megxit though, everything changed. He[Prince William] could no longer hide his true feelings because he felt like she had publicly attempted to disrespect his family and the Queen.”
Reportedly, a smaller-sized ‘Firm’ could see just Charles, Camilla, William, the Duchess of Cambridge, Princes George and Louis, and Princess Charlotte as senior royals.
