There is only so much King Charles III can take from his talkative and vindictive son, Prince Harry, and daughter-in-law Meghan Markle. After the bombshell Netflix series Harry & Meghan, the soldier prince has moved on to the next phase — his tell-all book Spare.
Prince Harry sat down for two significant interviews where he once more opened up about his father, King Charles, and older brother, Prince William. Appearing on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper, Prince Harry did not hold back and blamed King Charles and Prince William for leaking humiliating stories about him and his wife.
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.” He called the royals liars for hiding behind a motto while carefully responding and leaking stories to the press to come out on top.
Prince Harry shared: “You know, the family motto is ‘Never complain, never explain.’ It’s just a motto.” The Duke of Sussex also did an interview with the British network ITV, telling Tom Bradby: “I want a family, not an institution.”
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.”
Thus far, King Charles has adopted a deafening or dignified silence, according to historian David Starkey, who told The Mirror: “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.
With every passing day, I think with every desperate attempt at taking a little molehill of grievance and trying to turn it into a vast, vast Himalayas of resentment, they become less relevant. What I think Charles is doing is actually playing a rather clever long game. He’s just letting events take their course, which I think is a very wise thing to do.”
However, with the interviews for Spare and the book itself, King Charles is ready to adopt a new tactic. It is believed that a new King will emerge with these new violent and harmful revelations.
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.” King Charles’s “simmering rage” will push him to remove Prince Harry and Markle’s titles.
He could also deny his biracial grandchildren — Archie and Lilibet — their titles or ban the family from attending the coronation ceremony. King Charles is mulling the idea of releasing the investigation results into the claims that Markle bullied her staff
