Meghan Markle and Prince Harry chose to live the lives they desire. However, according to royal biographer Tina Brown, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made poor choices and could have maintained a better relationship with the royals after their exit.
Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Allegedly Made The Wrong Move
Journalist Tina Brown spoke with New York Times podcast Sway to promote her new book The Palace Papers: Inside The House Of Windsor - The Truth And The Turmoil. According to her, the royal couple who are now based in California made a "bad choice," Daily Mail reported.
Brown, who was also Princess Diana's biographer, believed that the Sussexes could have left the royal family on far better terms. However, Prince Harry was "so fragile, so combustible, he was so unhappy, frankly, in the constraints of the royal family."
For her, the Sussexes' exit was a "disaster all around" because Prince Harry and Markle allegedly both loved drama. They made various claims that hurt the royal family.
Prince Harry and Markle visited the Queen before they headed to the Invictus Games. In his interview with NBC's Hoda Kotb, he spoke about his special bond with the monarch and said that he wanted to protect his 96-year-old grandmother which raised some eyebrows.
Experts found his remarks insulting because Queen Elizabeth II is with Prince Charles and Prince William. So, they were wondering from whom the British monarch needed protection.
Meghan Markle Will Not Return To England Unlikely To Return To Royal Duties
There are rumors that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might return to their royal duties when Prince Charles takes over the throne. However, Brown felt that while it's a possibility for the Duke of Sussex, it's unlikely the duchess will do the same. Brown felt that Markle has no intention to stay in the U.K.
"I think that Harry is going to want to come back when the Queen dies to serve his country. And I think they will find a way to reel him in," Brown said. "And it’s possible that Meghan - maybe they will have a commuter arrangement. I don’t know. I don’t see Meghan ever wanting to go back. She disliked England."
However, royal author Tom Quinn was positive that Markle might join her husband in serving the monarchy part-time. According to him, it was the Sussexes' plan before.
"We’ve already heard Charles say he wants to streamline the royal family, [to] modernize it," Quinn told Us Weekly while discussing his book Scandals of the Royal Palaces: An Intimate Memoir of Royals Behaving Badly. "I think Meghan and Harry are hoping … Charles will be open to [them being] part-time royals, which is what they wanted from the start."
