Prince Harry ‘was extremely furious’ over Meghan’s treatment on South Africa tour

PRINCE Harry “was extremely furious” over Meghan Markle’s treatment during the royal tour to South Africa, according to royal expert Robert Jobson.

Robert Jobson said: “Every day they were getting positive press. Every single day in South Africa, there was no negative press whatsoever.

“And the way it was handled was pretty American, but it was pretty organised even though you weren’t necessarily interacting with the principals.

“At the same time we’ve got Tom Bradby from ITN having little conversations around the corners.”

Sky News royal reporter Rhiannon Mills added: “Well, I certainly didn’t have any idea of what exactly Prince Harry was saying to Tom Bradby.

“But how he was generally on that trip, he wasn’t like Prince Harry that we’ve known before.

“He didn’t really engage. He didn’t really come and come and talk to us in the ways that he would have done.”

“For Harry to see some media organisations represented on their tour of southern Africa be the same publications that had spent much of the year in his eyes harassing his pregnant wife, or writing ill of her, I think that’s where they really struggled,” added Omid Scobie.

Robert Jobson stated: “I remember we went to the township in Johannesburg, on the outskirts of Johannesburg, and he had speech to give there.

“He was extremely furious with the whole media.

“He didn’t want to look at the cameras. He didn’t want to interact.”

The second episode covered the birth of Harry and Meghan’s first child, Archie, and included the couple’s refusal to provide the traditional royal photo opportunity that happens hours after birth.

It also explored the growing distance between the Princes, highlighted through the Sussexes’ royal tour of South Africa, when Harry actively ignored the tabloids while giving an exclusive to an ITV’s Tom Bradby.

This was a far cry from his brother William’s tactic on his tour of Pakistan, where he invited the press into the cockpit of the royal plane for a group thank you.
