Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had plans to cajole Queen before her death in an attempt to mend ties
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA- The Duke and Duchess of Sussex allegedly had plans to ease their way into the Queen's good graces by 2023 but her death on September 8 apparently changed everything. Prince Harry and Meghan had also hoped to make amends with the rest of royal family as the cracks were deepening over time.
While speaking to The Sun, a royal insider said, “Next year 2023 was to be their reconciliation year." Another added, “They have always been careful to not criticise the monarch. They have always tried to be respectful to the Queen. But the Queen has now died and Charles and Camilla are the King and Queen."
Royal author Robert Jobson said, “Now this plot for a year of reconciliation. Their timing is appalling as always. It is also completely arrogant because they are assuming they can win back the trust of Harry’s father and brother. But that trust has gone forever." He added, "Harry and Meghan will never be looked at the same. Harry needs to remember he is now dealing with the Head of State — not just his dad. If they disrespect The King, they are not only disrespecting the man, but also the institution.”
The couple recently called off their arrangement with the aggressive Hollywood PR outfit Sunshine Sachs. It has been said that the decision was taken after the pair’s popularity dropped and now their charitable foundation Archewell will handle their publicity work instead.
As per reports, the New York-based company had worked with the Duchess of Sussex since her acting days. Not just that, she also shares a close relation with the firm’s senior partner Keleigh Thomas Morgan. The publicist was even invited to Meghan and Harry's wedding in May 2018.
Prince Harry was also set to release his bombshell memoir next month and Netflix documentary in December. However, The Duke of Sussex is apparently now "desperately making last-minute changes" to the "explosive" memoir following his grandmother's death, according to The Sun. The royal couple now wishes to have some parts of the docuseries edited after their most recent interaction with royal family after the Queen's death.
Fans were surprised to see Harry and Meghan reuniting with Prince William and Princess Kate while meeting mourners outside Windsor Castle. They were also able to reunite with King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla as they were standing right behind the pair during the Queen's funeral. Harry and Meghan have now expressed that they wish to talk about their relationship with their family in a more positive and kinder light.
