Prince Harry was so unhappy with his life as a working royal that Meghan’s work in helping him find an escape route should be credited, a source has claimed.

In his new book, Courtiers: the power hidden behind the crownwhich is serialized by The temperature from London, Valentine Low quotes “a surprising source – someone who knows Harry well but remains upset about what Harry and Meghan have done” – saying: “There is a part of me that thinks Meghan has done to Harry the greatest kindness that can be done to him. , who was to take him out of the royal family, as he was desperately unhappy in the last two years of his working life. We knew he was upset, but we didn’t really know what the solution would be. She came and found the solution.

Low, who is the respected royal correspondent for The temperaturehas already alleged in the book that Meghan’s treatment of staff leaves them, on occasion, “shaking” in fear.

However, he also says in the book that Meghan and Harry felt “cornered” by the “ridiculous rules” about what they could and could not do and the “inflexibility” of the Palace.

Another source slammed the Palace’s handling of the crisis as ‘incompetent beyond belief’, adding: ‘It just took decision makers sitting around a table and saying, ‘OK, what are we going to do about it? What do you need to feel better? And what can we give? »

Low quotes a source who told him: “In Meghan and the house, you had two worlds that had no experience of each other, had no way of understanding each other, had no way of And Meghan was never going to fit into that model and that model was never going to tolerate the Meghan that Meghan wanted to be.

Low also adds, however, that in the early days of exit negotiations, a serious effort was made to find a solution with five different scenarios being played in the war game, “which ranged from Harry and Meghan spending most of their time to be working members of the royal family, but having one month a year to do their own thing, spending most of their time in private, but doing a number of royal activities.

Low says that at one point Prince Charles’ private secretary, Clive Alderton, “remarked that if they could get it right, they would solve a problem for future generations of the royal family who weren’t in the direct line of succession.”

Ultimately, however, it was Queen Elizabeth who said royal rules regarding individuals making money and being apolitical should be sacrosanct, and that if Harry and Meghan wanted to “make money or “dipping their toes in American politics” they “couldn’t”. be authorized to perform official duties.

The notion of “compromise,” Low says, was eventually “removed by the Queen.”
