Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were planning to bombard Queen Elizabeth with a charm offensive as part of a plot to make amends with other members of the royal family, an insider claims. Explosive new claims have surfaced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were potting to target Queen Elizabeth with a charm offensive with the hope of reconciling with other members of the royal family. A royal insider told The Sun that “2023 was to be their reconciliation year,” however their plans were quickly derailed when the 96-year-old died last month. “Their timing is appalling as always,” the author of Diana: Closely Guarded Secret Robert Jobson told the British newspaper.
“It is also completely arrogant because they are assuming they can win back the trust of Harry’s father and brother. “But that trust has gone forever. Harry and Meghan will never be looked at the same.” Mr Jobson said the California-living royals need to remember they are now dealing with the Head of State — not just their dad and father-in-law. “If they disrespect The King, they are not only disrespecting the man, but also the institution,” the royal author told The Sun. It comes amid reports there are “heightening tensions” between King Charles III and the Sussexes over the future of Archie and Lilibet’s royal titles. However, according to The Times royal editor Roya Nikkhah, the pair “fear the King may strip Archie and Lilibet of their titles, after his reluctance immediately to recognise their elevated status after the Queen’s death”.
A source close to the 73-year-old told Vanity Fair that the King may forbid his grandchildren from using His and Her Royal Highness titles and Prince and Princess because of Meghan and Harry’s upcoming projects. The source revealed it would depend on what happens in the coming months, especially as the Royal family braces itself ahead of Harry’s tell-all book whose release date has not been confirmed.
