Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aren't reportedly done telling their side of the story. Following the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, there are reports that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been getting offers to appear in another tell-all interview. But this time around, Prince Harry and Markle would reportedly share their experiences following their recent trip to the United Kingdom.
As of writing, nothing has been finalized yet. But if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s tell-all pushes through, the royal family should brace themselves for what the couple could say about them.
Last year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex surprised the entire world with their tell-all with Oprah Winfrey. At the time, Prince Harry and Markle accused the royal family of being racist. Markle also revealed that Kate Middleton made her cry. And Prince Harry also accused Prince Charles of not supporting him and his family.
Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Courted By Different Networks To Appear In A Post-Platinum Jubilee Tell-All
Now, royal expert Neil Sean said that Prince Harry and Markle’s second tell-all – if it pushes through – would be just as shocking.
“All the TV broadcasters around the world are looking to put together specials on the Platinum Jubilee, particularly for their year-end things. American networks are very keen to sit down with Harry and Meghan to get their take on what has been spectacular years. I’ve been told that Australian TV to are interested particularly in all the mainstream media now. When you think about it, that could be a big pay deal for Harry and Meghan,” he told Express.
However, Cheat Sheet said that a post-Jubilee tell-all might be a tad bit problematic for Prince Harry and Markle because there’s not much they could share about their experience. After all, they didn’t attend all the events, and there was also no indication that they crossed paths with Prince William and Middleton.
Queen Elizabeth Wants To Protect The British Monarchy’s Reputation
Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth is doing everything that she can to prevent Prince Harry and Markle from causing further damage to the royal family. As such, she reportedly banned the release of the bullying investigation that the royal family conducted.
In 2018, two palace staff decided to leave their post after working for Prince Harry and Markle for just a couple of months. At the time, an unnamed royal insider claimed that Markle drove the two staffers to resign because she bullied them.
The Duchess of Sussex denied the allegations and said that she was being defamed. Also, at the time, the Queen said that she would conduct an investigation into the bullying allegations, but no update has been released even though it has already been four long years.
While speaking with Entertainment Tonight, royal author Katie Nicholl explained why the Queen seemingly buried the results of the investigation.
“Everything that I’m hearing at the moment out of the palace is that the Queen doesn’t want any more drama. She just doesn’t want any more dirty linens aired in public. By taking it in-house, which is essentially what the Queen has done, she is trying to limit any further damage, any further damage to the monarchy, potentially any further damage to those members of staff who have made those allegations, and also, possibly to the Duchess of Sussex, who denied those allegations,” she said.
Nicholl also said that the palace is trying to protect everyone involved. And the Queen also wants to bury Markle’s report in the grave.
“Well, it's been speculated that the reason that this investigation isn't going to essentially see the light of day, at least in public, is to protect those who spoke out and made these allegations of bullying against the Duchess of Sussex, to protect their privacy, to protect their anonymity. And there is some speculation that this would not have been particularly pleasant reading for the Duchess of Sussex, and possibly she's being protected in all of this as well,” Nicholl said.
At the end of the day, the Queen’s goal is to preserve the reputation of the British monarchy.
