Prince Harry and Meghan Markle face another setback as they have reportedly been excluded from the guest list for King Charles’ upcoming 75th birthday celebrations. The apparent snub adds to the growing tensions within the Royal Family, and sources suggest that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex won’t be reuniting with the family for Christmas.
Insiders attribute this strained relationship to the couple’s tell-all Netflix documentary, “Harry & Meghan,” where they made several shocking revelations about the Royal Family. Harry disclosed the breakdown of his relationship with Prince William, accusing him of intimidating behavior during the Sandringham summit. He also claimed that members of Kensington Palace had lied to protect William, told Mirror.
In his memoir, “Spare,” Harry continued to make controversial claims, alleging that Queen Camilla leaked stories to the press about William and accusing his father of making cruel jokes at his expense. Public relations expert Ryan McCormick believes that Harry and Meghan shouldn’t be surprised by the lack of invitations to family events, given the controversial nature of their public statements, told the Daily Express.
McCormick stated, “If you try to make a name for yourself by severing the hand that raised you, don’t be surprised when you don’t receive Christmas invitations from them. In Harry’s memoir ‘Spare,’ he calls King Charles’ second wife Camilla ‘dangerous.’ Charles may still be upset by it. Also, he and other members of the Royal Family may not want Harry and Meghan around for fear of being quoted in a future tell-all book.”
There are rumors circulating about Meghan releasing her own memoir, following in her husband’s footsteps. PR expert Mayah Riaz believes Meghan’s memoir will likely focus on her life away from the Royal Family, delving into her early career and experiences in Hollywood. Riaz suggests that while it may not be as explosive as previous revelations, it could still shed light on Meghan’s struggles and challenges in the entertainment industry.
As the Royal Family navigates these tensions, the exclusion of Harry and Meghan from key family events underscores the ongoing rift and raises questions about the future dynamics within the monarchy.
