It’s been a year to the day that Meghan and Harry made the decision to leave the United Kingdom to go into exile in California by abandoning their royal commitments. A shocking decision that continues to pour out ink. And for good reason, according to royal expert Penny Junor, the Megxit would have caused more damage to the royal family than an abdication. In the columns of the British tabloid Mirror, the one who has signed several books on the Windsors points the finger at the damage caused by the departure of the Sussexes from the Firm. She claims that the interview Archie’s parents gave Oprah Winfrey didn’t help matters. On the contrary, according to her, the explosive revelations made by the couple and particularly the accusations of racism “launched a huge bomb at the heart of the institution”. “When Harry and Meghan left a year ago people were surprised and disappointed because they were a great couple. Harry was an extremely popular royal and Meghan was a great asset to the family.” Penny Junor said before taking stock on the anniversary: ”A year later I think a lot of people are really angry and think they have betrayed their family and the UK.”
According to the expert, this “crisis” engendered within the royal family, would be even worse than that which followed the abdication of Edward VIII: “The circumstances are very different. Edward VIII was expelled, while Harry and Meghan have chosen to leave, but I think it is more damaging, “she said, saying the” terrible accusations “by the Sussexes will” continue “. “I don’t know how this whole problem will be solved because Harry has shown that he is untrustworthy and that if he doesn’t like what the royals are telling him, the chances are good that it ends up on world television. ” Penny Junor finally concluded.
New controversy for Prince Harry
To make matters worse, William’s brother is at the heart of a new controversy in recent days. He is accused of having lied or at least of having failed to reveal an important detail during his interview with Oprah. Meghan’s husband has indeed revealed that he is now financially independent and that his father Charles had cut him off, forcing him to have to dig into the inheritance left by his mother Diana. “I have what my mother left me and without it we wouldn’t have been able to leave. All I wanted was to have enough money for our safety and to put my family to safety. of need, ”he said. However, Harry would have forgotten to mention the colossal sum he inherited from his great-grandmother a few years ago. In 2002, on the death of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (the mother of Queen Elizabeth II), William and Harry received the tidy sum of £ 14 million to be shared equally, according to the latter’s will, partly disclosed by Buckingham Palace. According to information from L’Express UK, the sum would have even reached 20 million, thanks to the investments of the royal advisers.
