Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be “read the riot act” by the rest of the Royal Family when they return to the UK, a royal commentator has claimed. Charlie Rae, the former royal editor of The Sun, spoke to talkRADIO about the challenges the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to face this year. He warned their newly struck deals with organisations like Netflix and Spotify could prove to be divisive with the Royal Family.
Mr Rae said: “It’s going to be an even busier few months coming up because we are expecting Harry to come back.
“March is the end of this year-long deal that they’ve got at the moment.
“That will turn out to be extended forever and a day.
“He’s also due to be around for the Queen’s 95th birthday, Prince Philip’s 100th birthday and, of course, the unveiling of the Diana statue at Kensington later this year.”
Meghan and Harry to be ‘read riot act’ over LA antics in ‘intensive talks’ upon UK return
Mr Rae said: ‘March is the end of this year-long deal that they’ve got at the moment.’
He continued: “So there’ll be a couple of trips, Covid providing of course.
“He’ll be here for some quite intensive talks with the Royal Family.
“I’m sure they’ll be reading the riot act to him.
“There’ll be problems with some of the things that he and Meghan have been getting up to with Netflix and Spotify and write-on coffee cups.”
Mr Rae said: ‘He’ll be here for some quite intensive talks with the Royal Family.’
The deals the Sussexes have signed are part of their pledge to be “financially independent” from the Royal Family after stepping down as senior members.
According to Spotify, Archewell Audio will produce programming that “uplifts and entertains audiences around the world and features diverse perspectives and voices”.
For their multi-year Netflix deal, the couple are expected to produce and possibly starring in documentaries, feature films and children’s programmes.
MEGHAN AND HARRY TIMELINE
The Sussexes’ commercial entanglements could become a major discussion factor with the Palace this year.
The initial exit deal they struck with the Royal Family is due to be reviewed in the spring.
As part of the announcement at the start of 2020, the couple were no longer able to use their HRH titles.
Harry also lost his role as Captain-General of the Royal Marines, which he inherited from Prince Philip.
There have been suggestions that the Duke’s official military appointments could be returned to him as part of the Megxit deal overhaul.
