The Royal Family knows how to respond to Prince Harry’s explosive claims, according to a commentator, who accused him of presenting a “shallow storyline”. Royal expert Kinsey Schofield says the Firm understands that if they stay quiet, the general public will grow “increasingly tired” and the appeal will fizzle out.
The Duke of Sussex, 38, will reveal new information about the Royal Family in two upcoming interviews, airing on CBS and ITV on Sunday.
These coincide with the release of his new book, Spare, on January 10. It is expected to divulge further details about Harry’s life in the Firm and fallout with other royals since stepping back from duties in 2020.
Ms Schofield, host of the ‘To Di For Daily’ podcast, told Fox News: “The Royal Family is bracing for negative headlines, but they have survived much worse.
“They are confident that this is only temporary, and their team gets the sense that people are very much over this storyline.
“If the Royal Family responds, then it keeps Harry and Meghan’s drama going… If they remain quiet and Harry and Meghan keep beating the same drum, people will grow increasingly tired of this very shallow storyline.”
Both CBS and ITV have shared sneak peek clips of their interviews with Harry.
In one clip from CBS’ 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper, The Duke accused Buckingham Palace of leaking and planting stories to the press about himself and his wife, Meghan Markle.
Royal expert Hilary Fordwich said it is unlikely the Palace will feed into Harry’s latest press appearances by offering a statement in response.
Ms Fordwich told Fox News: “As Harry well knows, the Royal Family don’t speak freely about their feelings, and nor is he.”
Instead, she believes the family will do “what is expected” of them and respond by “keeping calm and carrying on”.
