King Charles III is said to have enlisted the help of the Archbishop of Canterbury to act as a go-between for the Royal Family and Prince Harry, but one royal commentator believes the Duke won’t budge on his demands.
Royal biographer Angela Levin said: “[Negotiating] to give him good seats right at the front, I think that’s terrible. He doesn’t deserve it.
“The important thing is that Harry can’t negotiate, he doesn’t want to give. He’s not somebody who will say: ‘Look, I’m sorry, let’s work together on this.”
Following the commercial success of Meghan and his Netflix docuseries and his memoir Spare, Prince Harry will likely feel “more confident” in negotiations with his family, according to Ms Levin.
She told Talk TV’s Julia Hartley-Brewer: “He now feels more confident that he’s got the knack for actually dealing with the Royal Family and he wants to win. I think he won’t say yes or no right up to the last minute.”
‘Divisions’ emerge in camp Sussex as Prince Harry’s ‘vicious piece of work’ book backfires
Prince Harry’s explosive memoir has been described as a “vicious piece of work” by Nile Gardiner, the former aide to Margaret Thatcher. Speaking to Dan Wootton on GB News, Nile Gardiner said: “I think the British public have turned Harry really into a pariah, as a result of this very nasty book.”
The comments come following reports that King Charles III has enlisted the assistance of the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby in negotiating with the Sussexes about the coronation.
According to The Telegraph, the King is concerned that Meghan and Harry’s absence from the coronation might be more distracting than their presence.
Archbishop Welby, who officiated the Sussexes’ wedding in 2018, is said to be “very supportive of their plight”, according to the paper.
King Charles is said to be willing to give concessions for their attendance, including high-profile seating and an assurance that the couple would retain their titles. His coronation will take place May 6, 2023.
However, it is hard to see any interviewer ignoring the issue of the Sussexes’ split from the rest of the Firm.
The reports follow the publication of Prince Harry’s memoir Spare, which included a series of attacks on the institution of the monarchy as well as his family.
It became the fastest-selling non-fiction book ever and was prefaced by the Duke’s own series of interviews on British and American television.
