Speaking of a “complex” young Harry and his brother William, royal author Valentine Low writes: “The younger prince was a dashing figure, flying an Apache helicopter, and was heavily committed in the area of children’s health, with charities like Well Child. But he also used to be quite a wild lad.
When Harry was young, it was easy to forgive him, his transgressions. But at what point does a wild lad become a seedy old roué? At the time, it was nothing to worry about: just something to keep an eye on.
“Eventually, of course, the problem would resolve itself, but not in a way that Lowther-Pinkerton or anyone else imagined. The wild lad died the day Harry met Meghan Markle.”
It comes as another royal writer, Duncan Larcombe, said the Sussexes must make a decisive choice over their future in the Royal Family, commenting: “In my opinion, it’s only Meghan and Harry who can decide what they want.
“Do they want to forgive and forget, creating unity with the royal family? Or do they want a wholly separated life in California? They cannot have both.”
