Royal expert believes the recently released book on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is likely to induce more damage to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as compared to the Royal Family as far as popularity is concerned.
Royal author Nigel Cawthorne claimed if Meghan, 38, and her husband Harry, 38, decide to return to royal duties it would take a lot of effort to amend their rundown reputations among the public. Cawthorne warned that the new book dubbed “Finding Freedom” is likely to be more damaging in the U.K. to the couple rather than the Royal Family.
The author of Prince Andrew, Epstein, and the Palace says the new book could boost Harry and the former actress’s status as an A-list couple in the United States. “In Britain, the book is bound to be more damaging to Meghan and Harry’s popularity,” he told Express.co.uk.
“Its enormous pre-publicity is a reminder to people that the couple only recently left the country, ostensibly for Canada but really for Los Angeles all along it seems. If they were to make a comeback in some official royal capacity it would require a major effort to mend burnt bridges with the public at large.”
“In the US, on the other hand, the book is likely to cement their status as an A-list couple,” Cawthorne explained.
After leaving the U.K. and bowing out of the Royal Family as part of a move dubbed ‘Megxit,’ Meghan and Harry are currently holed up in L.A. with their son where they are quarantining amid the coronavirus pandemic. Serialized by the Times and the Sunday Times, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s new book divulged new details about tensions between the Royal Family and the Sussexes.
Harry was upset with his brother William’s snobbish advice not to rush his romance with Meghan, according to the book. Meghan, on the other hand, was disappointed when William’s wife Kate Middleton did not reach out to her when she and Harry had started dating, the authors claim.
