Royal author Tom Bower claimed that Harry’s mother, the late Diana, would be appalled over her youngest son’s “disloyalty” to the royal family amid claims that people were willing to lie to protect his brother Prince William but not tell the truth to protect the Sussexes.
“Their mother Diana would be appalled by Harry’s disloyalty,” Bower told the Sun. “Not only is that rupture distressing for William and King Charles, but also for the country. The image of warring brothers is terrible for Britain’s global reputation.”
Diana, who was the first wife of King Charles III when he was the heir apparent, died in a car crash after being chased by paparazzi in Paris in 1997.
Bower, who wrote the book Revenge, also claimed that Meghan’s statement that the couple’s security had been pulled was “shockingly untrue,” according to the outlet. Another expert, Richard Fitzwilliams, claimed the security statement could have been sensationalized by Netflix and asked for proof if it was true.
“The charge ‘our security was being pulled, everyone in the world knew where we were’ implies they were not given proper security as senior working royals before Megxit,” Fitzwilliams said. “It follows from that that in their opinion the Royal and VIP Executive Committee (Ravec) was not doing its job properly. We must ask why and require them to produce proof. It is also possible that — given a reported 15 hours of footage by the Sussexes — Netflix have sensationalised their comments in the trailer to draw in viewers.”
The controversial comments from the couple come in the latest trailer for their six-part documentary series, released by Netflix on Monday. The trailer teased the final three episodes of the series, which will be released on Thursday. The first three already dropped on the streaming platform last week and included accusations of “unintentional bias” in the royal family.
The new trailer also includes claims of “institutional gaslighting,” and Meghan claimed she was “fed to the wolves” when she joined the royal family.
The documentary series is the latest in a string of projects for the couple. Meghan also recently completed a podcast series on Spotify, and Harry will release a book, Spare, in January.
