After the death of Queen Elizabeth, is there a way for the Sussexes to return to the family? A new book could serve as a compelling counter-argument. Author Valentine Low spoke to palace insiders – and unearthed incredible stories.
This new release could keep the Sussexes from sleeping: In his new book “Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown”, which will be available from October 6, 2022, author Valentine Low documents highly explosive insider information from Buckingham Palace that Prince Harry , 38, and Duchess Meghan, 41, do not appear in a too bright light. It’s about self-doubt, threats and unexpected demands.
In 2020, Harry and Meghan said goodbye to the front row of the royal family to lead a self-determined life in the USA. Since then, there isn’t just an ocean separating the Sussexes and the royal family. There is talk of deep trenches of disruption. In particular, the relationship with King Charles and Prince William is tense.
However, these cracks, which cannot be overlooked today, are said to have appeared long before the couple turned their backs on Great Britain and with it the royals, as Low claims.
Prince Harry feared becoming “irrelevant”.
Apparently, Prince Harry was plagued by self-doubt from an early age, which reached a dark climax with the birth of Prince George, 9. Even then, he believed he would become “irrelevant” as soon as his nephew turned 18. “He had this thing that he had a shelf life. He was fixated on it,” says a source in Low’s book, excerpted from The Times. “He was dating his uncle [Prinz Andrew, Anmerkung der Redaktion] compared. He said, ‘I have this time to make this impact. Because I can’.” Apparently, he was afraid of being pushed aside. As soon as his brother Prince William’s eldest, 40, would come of age, it was said to him: “Then I’ll be the follower.” In one An excerpt of the book reads: “They (Royal Staff) told him: ‘You can make a difference in your forties, fifties or even longer. As long as you lay the right foundations now.’ But he never saw that.”
Harry refused to go into crisis talks with William
Harry is said to have resisted massively against finding a way in talks with Prince William to stabilize the relationship with the family again. The alleged reason: He feared details from the crisis communication would leak to the press. When he asked the elder who knew about this meeting, the latter named his private secretary, who kept his diary. “At that point, Harry said he wasn’t coming. He was so concerned that William’s team would leak the visit to the press that he would rather not come than risk it getting in the papers,” reads the book Claims his older brother, however, recognized the need for an exchange early on and, upon seeing the couple’s comments on the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, he was alarmed by his brother’s and his wife’s apparent dissatisfaction There was no clarification because the Sussexes then moved abroad.
Meghan threatened a relationship ultimatum
This announcement allegedly made Harry tremble: Meghan is said to have put massive pressure on him before her love outing in November 2016. If he doesn’t go public with their relationship, she would dump him, Low writes. “With hordes of journalists scouring every aspect of Meghan’s life, Harry was determined to protect his girlfriend. Meanwhile, Meghan told him that if he didn’t do something about it, she would end the relationship.” A source claims Meghan said, “If you don’t provide a statement confirming that I’m your girlfriend, I will break up with you.” Harry was totally in a panic and openly feared: “She will let me fall.”
Harry was put in the lace by Queen Elizabeth
Shortly before the wedding with Meghan, there was said to be an angry argument between the couple. Queen Elizabeth, † 96, then summoned her grandson to her. The organization of the wedding was “particularly stressful”. There was obviously disagreement over the planning, announcements, gospel choir and tiara. There has reportedly been a dispute over the arrangements for trying on the Queen’s tiara. This led to the Queen’s strict summons. According to an insider, Harry was “downright rude” and is said to have been properly laced up by his grandmother.
Duchess Meghan: “I can’t believe I’m not getting paid for this”
Duchess Meghan is said to have been less than enthusiastic about the circumstances of the 16-day royal tour in 2018 to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand. Although she liked to bathe in the friendly attention of people, she did not seem to understand the meaning behind the total of 76 appointments that she completed with her husband. “Even though she enjoyed the attention, Meghan didn’t understand the point of all these tours and shook hands with countless strangers.” Unnamed employees even heard the newly crowned royal say: “I can’t believe I’m not getting paid for this. ”
“Nervious Assault Before Queen Showdown”
Prince Harry is said to have panicked before a phone call with the Queen in 2019 and suffered a nervous attack. The reason for the alleged call was his wife’s plans to attack the British media. At that time it was about Meghan’s legal campaign against Associated Newspapers Limited for the publication of personal letters between her and her father Thomas Markle. An excerpt from the new book says: “Harry often has a nervous attack before he has to speak to the Queen. So when he joined his team for a drink in the bar that Sunday night, he sat there, so exhausted and nervous that his private secretary, Sam Cohen, said to him, ‘You must have a beer.'”
