Prince William ‘smoothed path’ to his reign with strategic peace offering


PRINCE William “smoothed the path” to his reign with a strategic peace offering to the press during his royal tour to Pakistan, according to royal expert Roya Nikkhah.

Royal correspondent for Sky News, Rhiannon Moore said:”Yeah we were basically told by Prince William, thank you for coming and really unexpectedly he said, you can take this as a group hug.”

Royal Editor at The Sunday Times Roya Nikkhah added: “Has William making peace with the media smoothed the path towards his time in the monarchy when it comes to it? Yes it probably has.

“But he’d rather have a relationship with the media where he feels it can go both ways.

Ms Mills added: “What was fascinating though, as that tour went on, we were seeing promo clips of Harry and Megan’s documentary being released.”

The documentary would feature a candid interview between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and ITV’s Tom Bradby, who is a friend of Prince Harry’s.

In the interview, Meghan revealed that she hadn’t been coping well with the intense scrutiny from the press and public, and when Tom Bradby asked if she was ok, the Duchess replied: “Thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m okay… But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”

Bradby then asked: “And the answer is, it would be fair to say, not really okay? As in, it’s really been a struggle?”

Meghan replied “Yes” as it was visible she was fighting back tears.

After the tour the Duke released an official statement condemning the press for their treatment of his wife, Meghan.

It read: “Though we have continued to put on a brave face – as so many of you can relate to – I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been.
