'Loose cannon' Meghan Markle may use her podcast to reveal sensitive details about Queen's funeral
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are back in the US after the Queen's funeral. Will things be peaceful among the royals from now on? Not quite. As per reports, Meghan has been called a "loose cannon" by some within the royal family. A royal commentator said that Meghan might be planning re-edit her scheduled 'Arechetype' podcast episodes to add sensitive details about the Queen’s funeral.
Journalist Jonathan Sacerdoti said that just because Harry’s memoir has hit a bump, it doesn't sound good for his father King Charles. He said that it points to signs that Harry may pull off something similar to what his wife Meghan has up her sleeve.

Things have gone haywire ever since the two decided to not be royals and settled in California in the beginning of 2020. There were a lot of controversies that happened soon after. The Oprah interview, where Meghan said that a royal member had passed remarks about her son Archie's skin tone, was like throwing a lit match into a powder keg. After the Queen's death, the royal family, however, put all their differences aside during the 10-day mourning period. Harry and Meghan joined the Prince and Princess of Wales, William and Kate, for a walkabout and even met well-wishers.
Sacerdoti said that the rift in the family was anything but healed. According to Express, Sacerdoti said, “I think the Royal Family does try to control what individual members of the family do in terms of publicity, I don't think that is news to anyone. And I think they did presumably try to control what Harry and Meghan did when they were within the family. But I think now that they have left as working royals and have left the country, they obviously have much less control over them." He added, "And so to the royal family, at least Meghan may be a loose cannon because she is somebody that will respect the rules and requests and preferences of the royal family only as far as she feels she should.”
He continued, “I think they will try and make that balance as they see fit, but they may think that balance is struck in a different way from the royal family, that is the point. And that is their right, incidentally, they are under no obligation. It is just that people are judging them on where they choose to strike that balance.That is everybody's prerogative, to judge them how we all feel they have done.” Sacerdoti also mentioned that it was hard to predict what their next move was and that they " were pursuing their own agenda".
Sacerdoti said, “I don't know if Meghan will re-edit and remake any podcasts. We heard rumours that how Harry’s book will be delayed. I do not believe that is confirmed, but we have heard that rumour."
"Now there are various reasons why that could be. It could be out of respect for what's going on now and they just feel it is not the appropriate time for any book from him to be coming out, while his father is settling in as the King or while the Queen has just recently passed away.It could be because there were things in the book that he now wishes to remove because he feels they are insensitive and so it will take some time to do that," Sacerdoti added, concluding, "Or it could be because he plans to put more in the book.” Sacerdoti claimed that Harry got the book deal as publishers thought they would get all the juicy details.
