Meghan Markle and Prince Harry banking on Duke’s memoir to shed ‘bitter and angry’ image


MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry are hoping that the Duke of Sussex’s upcoming memoir will shed their “bitter and angry” image, a royal expert claimed.

Speaking on the latest episode of Royally Us about Harry’s memoir, Mr Sykes said: “It is the opportunity for them to turn the page on the, kind of, looking bitter and angry [image] in the Oprah interview.”

He added: “I do feel like ultimately, and it was received differently in the UK over here, to how it was in America, but I do feel that ultimately they didn’t come out brilliantly.

“They didn’t land the killer punch on the royals.”

Mr Sykes continued: “The stories were, kind of, conflicting about who said what [and] when they said it.

“Oprah, I felt, didn’t interrogate it fully enough.”

He added: “So, I felt that overall, they didn’t come out brilliantly.

“I think that people had very little sympathy for Harry pleading poverty.

“I thought that was a really really odd thing for him to do.”

He noted how it was “odd” for Harry to claim that his father “cut him off” financially, despite previously stating that he, and Meghan, wanted to “work to become financially independent”.

In July 2021, on Penguin Random House’s website, Harry himself wrote how “deeply grateful” he was for the opportunity to release the memoir.

He wrote: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.

The statement claimed that the memoir would cover “his lifetime in the public eye”, everything from his “childhood to the present day”.
