British-Nigerian activist and political commentator Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu claimed that King Charles III and the Royal Family “made a U-turn” in their stance against Harry and Meghan. Charles expressed his “love” towards his son, Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle during his first speech as King, in a sign spreading hopes of reconciliation. But Harry’s appearance without a military uniform subsequently in an engagement following the Queen’s death caused a stir, which Dr Mos-Shogbamimu suggested was intentional.
Speaking on the Owen Jones show, the activist claimed that the Royal Family “knows what they are doing” when they are “feeding Harry and Meghan to the press”.
Asked about what Harry and Meghan’s treatment tells about King Charles III and the monarchy as an institution, Dr Mos-Shogbamimu said: “When Charles became King, during his first speech, he expressed love for Prince Harry and Meghan.
“And at first I thought ‘Well, a public expression of love maybe will go someway in pushing back the detractors and haters’. But then they started to mess up.
“There was the military uniform. He can’t wear it. Why? ‘Oh, we aren’t giving any good reason’”.
She continued: “This is a young man who served this country, rose up in the ranks, did two tours.
“He has been supporting injured world veterans, he is the founder of Invictus Games. Who else is worthy to wear the military uniform? And why allow it to be a subject of conversation?
“And then they did a U-turn. And then we hear about ‘They were invited!’ then ‘Now they’re uninvited’. It almost seems to me that Charles must know that we can see this is intentional.
“Because if you place your own child in a position to be a subject of mockery and continued abuse, it tells me that you know what you are doing.

“We see it, this is why people should call it out.”
She also accused the Royal Family of being “complicit” in a “coordinated factory of hatred” against Meghan and said King Charles had the power to “nip this in the bud”.
Harry and Meghan reside in California, US after stepping down from working members of the Royal Family in 2020.
