Prince Harry spoke with “bizarre language” about his and Meghan’s recent return to the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, a royal expert has said.
Speaking to Australian TV about the relationship between the Royal Family and the Sussexes, royal correspondent Russell Myers claimed the situation remained “very very frosty” months after the couple’s bombshell interview with US TV host Oprah Winfrey.
Harry and Meghan complained about their treatment by certain family members during the interview – claiming one royal, unnamed, speculated about the colour of Archie’s skin before he was born.
Weeks before their recent return to the UK – where they were joined by one-year-old daughter Lilibet, who met the Queen for the first time – Harry gave an interview to NBC Today.
Referring to the Duke of Sussex’s interview, Russell Myers said: “Harry was giving an interview just a couple of weeks ago when he was at the Invictus Games.
“It was all, sort of, bizarre language, he was there to protect the Queen and these things are not going down too well.
“If it [their relationship] is to be repaired, then there needs to be a bit more water under the bridge”.
However, Mirrorman Myers agreed with Australian TV Host Richard Wilkins on the Today Show who claimed they may be trying to “have their cake and eat it too”.
Myers added: “If Harry’s looking for some, sort of, piecemeal then he was a long way off that.
“The people I speak to, the Palace every day, who [are] obviously very very well connected with the top players, as it were.
“They are still absolutely furious”.
Myers added: “You can’t go on, you know, international television interview with Oprah Winfrey, complaining about your treatment with the family and then wanting to sit down with them when you’re still giving interviews”.
