Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to return to the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. But according to a royal biographer, that is unlikely to happen as they fear being “booed” in public.
The Duke of Sussex told Hoda Kotb in his interview with the ‘Today Show’ last week that he was still unsure if he would be there for the celebrations in June. He said security played a major role in his uncertainty, although it is understood Queen Elizabeth II had previously invited him and Meghan Markle to be on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.
There are reports that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will enjoy full security at family events if they decide to attend. However, Duncan Larcombe doubts the couple will show up. He claimed they would not want to risk being humiliated by the British public.
“Even though they need their royal connection, I really don’t think they’ll be back for Jubilee. I think there’s a real chance they’ll be booed on the balcony, and that risk of humiliation will be too great for them,” he told Closer magazine.
Larcombe added: “Harry says a lack of security prevents him from coming, but I think that’s just an excuse. »
The author of “Prince Harry; The Untold Story” even claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have since had a “game plan”. He pointed out that they shouldn’t have hired an “army of lawyers, public relations and experts” if they didn’t have them.
“If part of that plan is to try to bring down the Royal Family, then they won’t be successful, because Harry and Meghan aren’t as popular as they might have hoped, and they’re not always credible. “, he explained. .
Larcombe’s statements contradict what royal biographer Tina Brown has said about the importance of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to the royal family. She said the couple were loved by the British public and their presence on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations was therefore expected. They are said to be needed by the Royal Family ‘to bring that star power and to be on the balcony at Jubilee’.
