Since leaving the royal family, they have lived more than 8,000 kilometers from Great Britain on the other side of the globe. But when Meghan Markle gives an interview in California, the effects are felt in the Old World as well.
The Duchess has just opened her doors to an author of the US magazine "The Cut" and not only chatted about her married life ("That's Harry and I. We're like salt and pepper.") But also dropped, Harry "lost" his father.
A sentence that causes nervousness in the palace. It was known that the relationship between heir to the throne Prince Charles and his youngest son was broken. But what is broken can be repaired. If something is lost, the situation seems hopeless. According to Meghan, detachment from royal duties should have led to the break. "'Harry told me, 'I lost my father in the process.'"
Harry himself also has his say in the detailed article in "The Cut". And what he says there is unflattering for his family: "Most people I know, and many in my family, are not able to work and live together."
All of these statements also raise fears in the royal family about the forthcoming publication of Harry's memoirs. Prince Charles and Diana's youngest son is expected to release his biography later this year. What exactly he writes about his family in it - he leaves the palace in the dark.
But after the recent statements by Meghan and Harry from the conversation with "The Cut", at least one certainty is solidified among the royals: it shouldn't be pleasant.
