William and Charles to leave Harry and Meghan to 'sort things out on their own', feel they're a 'distraction'
Prince William and Prince Charles will supposedly leave Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, to “sort things out on their own” while they “unite in getting back to business”, a royal expert has claimed. Russell Myers, the royal editor of the Daily Mirror, claimed the Duke of Cambridge and his father, the Prince of Wales, supposedly “want to draw a line under Harry and Meghan” who have been a “distraction for the family”.
Speaking to talkRADIO, Myers explained: “The rest of the royal family are very, very united in trying to get back to business. But no one has done the real business of monarchy, which is getting out, being among the people and shining a light on different charities, and traveling the world and the Commonwealth.”

He continued: “It's part of getting Britain back on its feet. As far as Harry and Meghan are concerned, I think they will be left to try and sort things out on their own.”
Myers also said that the highly controversial Oprah Winfrey interview of the Sussexes that aired in March 2021 went down like a “lead balloon.” He said, “There will be quite a lot of dissatisfaction in the camp and it remains to be seen whether they will ever be brought back in. I'm sure that Harry was a bit sheepish seeing the rest of his family at Prince Philip's funeral.”
He added, “It was the first time he has spoken to many of them since that Oprah Winfrey interview where he accused them of all manner of things. He went back to America with his tail between his legs and who knows what will happen in the future."
Earlier, Myers had claimed how Harry was taken aback by the "very, very cold reception" he received from the royal family during his visit to the UK for Prince Philip’s funeral. He said the estranged royal was "shocked" by the reception he received from the rest of his family -- senior members of the royal family allegedly shunned the Duke of Sussex.
He said, “Some quarters of the family did give him a frosty reception and perhaps that did shock him somewhat." He further speculated that Harry may use the birth of his second child in the summer as a "convenient excuse" not to turn up "and face the family".
Myers said the tell-all interview had sent shockwaves through the royal family, which "might not be good news for Harry".
When asked if Harry would come back for the unveiling of the Diana memorial with his brother in July, Myers said, "I'm told he is still committed to coming. Both camps are. Certainly, Kate and William will welcome him if he wants to come back. His intention is to come back. One may wonder, if his wife has just had a baby, I'm sure he could jump on a private jet and made a flying visit. But, will it be a convenient excuse so he doesn't have to come back and face the family?"
