Speaking to Express.co.uk, royal expert Kinsey Schofield laid bare her thoughts on the relationship between the Sussexes and the Prince and Princess of Wales.
“I believe that Harry and Meghan are bitterly jealous of the Prince and Princess of Wales,” Ms Schofield said. She claimed that when Prince Harry was younger he told several people, including his mother Princess Diana, “he wanted to be King”.
Ms Schofield also took aim at the Sussexes for failing to acknowledge that much of their popularity has derived from their position within the Firm.
“People weren’t lining up in the streets to meet Meghan Markle from Suits. They wanted to meet Prince Harry’s girlfriend and wife,” she said.
Publishers have promised that the book has been written with “raw, unflinching honesty”. Its publishing follows Netflix’s release of the Sussexes’ docuseries Harry & Meghan.
The six part series details Meghan and Harry’s relationships as well as their struggles with the Firm and the media following Meghan’s entrance into the Royal Family. It was released in two three episode parts on December 8 and 15 of last year.
With Prince Harry’s memoir set to drop next week, there has been speculation that Meghan could be looking to write her own memoir. Ms Schofield thinks that Meghan likely intends to put her own story to paper.
She said: “Meghan will write a book. Hopefully, she leans into leadership or philanthropy and gives the victim narrative a rest because American media outlets are turning on them now too.”
