Not All Meghan Markle’s Fault, Royal Commentator Says Prince Harry Is Also To Blame Over Recent Controversies
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been involved in several controversies and the biggest one is all about their alleged rift with the Royal Firm. The majority put the blame on the Duchess of Sussex, but a royal commentator said that the Duke of Sussex has contributed a huge part to why this happened.
Prince Harry and Markle stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family in 2020. The couple has since left the United Kingdom to start a new life in the United States. Shortly after that, they had a couple of interviews, wherein openly discussed how the Firm operates and the criticisms they received.
Their attacks on the Royal Family have been condemned in the UK, with many directing the blame on Markle. The tension between the Sussexes and the Royal Family was further ignited when the two made a series of allegations against the Firm in a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
However, a royal commentator noted that the Duchess of Sussex isn’t responsible for everything that happened to them. TV personality and British business executive Karren Brady said that the recent public attack the royal couple has been getting isn’t entirely Markle’s fault.
“We, the public, might need to stop blaming Meghan for all of this. It’s easy to see her as the problem rather than Prince Harry. It can’t be just Meghan engineering all this drama,” Brady wrote in a column for The Sun.
The royal commentator added that Prince Harry was a “damaged soul” when he met Markle and she helped him in a lot of ways, such as building a family of his own. She also leveled out the similarity of the situation with Carrie Johnson’s, the Prime Minister's wife.
Brady explained that people tend to point fingers at the wife than the husband, highlighting that there is a “sexist element to blaming the wife.” But, despite saying it’s not all Markle’s fault, the royal commentator added that the couple has taken things too far.
The Sussexes welcomed their second child, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, on June 4, 2021. The couple named their first daughter after her paternal great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and her late paternal grandmother, Princess Diana.
Brady has something to say about Prince Harry’s and Meghan's choice in naming their kid after Her Majesty. She said that the two could’ve just used “Elizabeth, Lili or Lilibeth,” rather than using a very intimate name for the Her Majesty.
Meanwhile, the late Princess Diana statue will be unveiled this coming July 1. Brady feared that the event might become another episode in the Harry and Meghan show. Still, she is hoping that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex learned from the recent events that happened to them and the Royal Family.
