“[What was] shocking to me, there were no new pictures, no acknowledgement from the Prince and Princess of Wales on any of their social media platforms — Twitter, Instagram — I thought that was kind of a gaping hole,” said Ms Bowie.
“It was almost like a comment without a comment and suggesting that maybe they really are reflecting.”
She continued: “It’s definitely not a week with business as usual. We saw King Charles III and Queen Camilla share a picture from Kate’s first visit to Wales on their Twitter account — that was very status quo. But other than that, it was crickets.”
Both William and Kate feature relatively heavily in Harry’s memoir. The Duke partially blames his brother and sister-in-law for his poor decision to wear a Nazi costume, details Kate’s disagreement with Meghan Markle in the lead-up to the 2018 royal wedding and claims the couples suffered as a result of a cultural clash.
At one point in time — albeit brief — Harry and Meghan, along with William and Kate, were known as the Fab Four.
Harry admits things got off to a promising start when he realised the then-Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were watchers of Meghan’s TV show Suits. “I casually mentioned that there was … a new woman in my life. They surged forward. ‘Who is she?’” he writes. “She’s an actress. ‘Oh?’ She’s American. ‘Oh.’ On a show called Suits. Their mouths fell open. They turned to each other. Then Willy turned to me and said: ‘F**k off?’”
