Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made several serious allegations against the monarchy, but the latter will survive, according to a report.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shared various revelations during their bombshell tell-all with Oprah Winfrey. However, despite the accusations against the members of the royals, an expert believed they will survive the PR disaster.
Meghan Markle, Harry’s revelation won’t end the monarchy
Prince Harry shared during his sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey that his brother, Prince William, was “trapped” in the system, referring to the monarchy. Meghan Markle also claimed that a member of the royal family brought concerns about their son Archie’s complexion.
There were conversations about how dark their son’s skin would be, the duchess said, which Prince Harry supported. The revelation sparked racist allegations against the royal family.
However, according to a royal expert, the royal couple’s big revelations won’t damage the monarchy for good.
“The monarchy can survive this interview without a doubt,” royal filmmaker Nick Bullen told Fox News. “There is not an inkling within me that would suggest that anything but survival is possible for them.”
Bullen admitted that the Sussexes’ interview was bad, shocking, and awful. For him, it was sad, but the Queen has been great in navigating both personal and public disasters plaguing the royal family.
Reaction to the palace’s statement
The palace immediately reacted to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s racism allegation, saying it treated the issue “very seriously.” However, many were not quite convinced with the statement because it did not forcefully condemn racism. Instead, it suggests that the couple’s version of the event may not be accurate.
Royal commentator Peter Hunt also did not like how the palace said it would deal with the issue privately. For him, the response was delayed, and the royals were supposed to step out of their comfort zone, but they didn’t.
What experts say to the Sussexes’ interview
While many weren’t happy with the palace’s statement, several were also not impressed with the way Prince Harry and Meghan Markle answered the interview. In fact, a number of royal experts felt that the royal couple was being rude and immature when they did the tell-all.
Dickie Arbiter, the Queen’s press spokesman, said the couple was being rude and immature. Royal author Robert Jobson also shared the same sentiment saying they were being rude to the monarch with their allegation in the tell-all.
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams also disapproved of the language they used because they seemed to lecture the Queen. Her Majesty decided to strip Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of their royal patronages and military appointments because they won’t have time for the duties of a public servant. However, the Sussexes fired back, saying they would continue with public service because “service is universal.”
