Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been ousted from the royal family. The couple has been unstoppable since they stepped back from royal duties. They have been on a mission to wash the family’s dirty linen in public. Harry and Meghan have been slandering the public image of the royal family through various media pieces.
Now, the royal family is in retaliatory mode. After King Charles III became the monarch of the UK, he ordered Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to vacate the Frogmore Cottage. The couple has been removed from the ‘Non-working royals’ category and shifted to ‘Others’. While there was still a glimmer of hope for a reconciliation between the two parties, the couple blew the chance after declining the invitation to the monarch’s birthday.
Prince Harry’s Absence At King Charles III’s Birthday Delays The Reconciliation Further
It has been an important month for King Charles III since he became the monarch of Britain. Charles addressed the UK Parliament this month, and he will mark his 75th birthday on November 14, 2023. The birthday party will be a soirée with a few people, including Queen Camilla, Princess Kate Middleton, and Prince William.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did not accept the invitation from the royal family to attend the birthday of the monarch. This move has widened the rift between the two parties. More than the snub, the family is irked at the timing of the announcement. Harry communicated it right before Charles’ address before the opening of the State Parliament.
A royal family commentator, Richard Fitzwilliams, told the Daily Express US that the timing for the rejection was wrong. “It could certainly take years for a reconciliation to happen between the Sussexes and the Royal Family,” Richard said.
He continued, “Who would trust Harry and Meghan, especially after their timing releasing the news about not hearing anything about an invite to King Charles’ 75th birthday celebrations on the day of the King’s first speech opening Parliament as Monarch?”
Richard Fitzwilliams claims that the move has resented the royal family.
The Royal Family Appointed UK Media To Malign The Couple’s Image
After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left the royal family in 2020, they gained sympathy from the people, villainizing the royal family. However, over some time, the couple lost the narrative after constant slandering of the family’s image. They cried for privacy by putting out more intimate details of their lives. However, while protecting their image, they not only ruined their stance but also put a bad light on the royal family.
A source told the Byline Times that the royal family tried to cause damage to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s image. The source said, “The greater truth is that Harry and Meghan make better headlines than the King and Camilla or William and Kate.”
It continued, “The idea of them still being in public service but abroad and out of the control of the institution and dominating the media narrative just couldn’t happen.”
The source claims that the royal family “tried everything to make it fail, starting with the removal of security and then signing off on a 12-month assault by the UK press on Harry and Meghan and everyone in their orbit.”
