Prince Harry showed his ‘paranoia’ turning down William’s offer to meet


Richard Eden spoke about the turbulent relationship between Prince Harry and his elder brother Prince William in the lead up to the Sussex’s quitting their royal duties and moving to Montecito, California.

Mr Eden said: “The first thing William wanted to do – he was shocked – was go to see his brother and talk about it.

“So, he made contact but Harry wanted to know who would come with him, who would need to know about him coming, and William had to say ‘Well, I would have to tell my private secretary because I will have to change my arrangements for tomorrow’.

“And Harry reportedly said, ‘Well, if anyone else knows about it, do not come’. And I mean that is really an insight into the paranoia [affecting Harry].

“Just the level of distrust there was at this point and you can tell that they really were on their way out of the Royal Family by then.”

King Charles tipped to ‘downgrade’ Beatrice and Eugenie’s titles after Danish Queen’s move

The reign of King Charles III will bring change within the Royal Family similar to the one already witnessed in other European monarchies, according to a royal historian.

Commentator Marlene Koenig believes Charles, who has been widely rumoured for years to be planning a slimmed-down Firm, is set to “further limit titles”.

Mr Eden was referring to events that occurred following the release of an ITV documentary entitled ‘Harry & Meghan: An African Journey’, which had been intended to cover the Sussex’s 10-day trip to Africa in 2019.

The documentary caused shockwaves among the British public after it ended up being less about the trip and more to do with Harry and Meghan’s relationship with the other royals.

In the documentary, Prince Harry claimed him and his brother “were on different paths”, adding that they had their “good days” and their “bad days”.

He said: “Part of this role and part of this job, this family, being under the pressure that it’s under, inevitably stuff happens. Prince William and Prince Harry

“We’re so busy, but I love him dearly. The majority of this stuff [in the press] is created out of nothing, but as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days.”

While tensions between the Sussex’s and the brothers had long been suspected, Harry’s comments were the first admission of difficulties to the press.

A matter of months later, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would quit their royal duties, in January of 2020.

Asked by ITV journalist Tom Bradby how she was coping, Ms Markle said: “Thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m ok. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”

Mr Bradby then added: “And the answer is, would it be fair to say, not really ok? That it’s really been a struggle?” To which Meghan replied: “Yes.”
