The Duke of Sussex stated that he would like to reclaim his father and his brother in his life. He continues to tell Tom Bradby that neither King Charles nor Prince William has made any effort to repair their relationship. Prince Harry went on to say that the family chooses to keep going with the storyline that he and his wife Meghan Markle are the antagonists who induced the major split among family members and that they believe it is best to do so. In response to the leaking and planting of stories about him and Meghan, Harry stated that he desired a family, not an institution.
In their recently released Netflix docuseries, "Harry and Meghan," Prince Harry and Meghan Markle addressed claims that King Charles, then Prince Charles, and Prince William began to leak and plant negative stories about them after Harry and Meghan expressed their desire to step down as senior working members of the royal family.
Prince Harry will also be seen discussing his upcoming memoir, "Spare," which will be released on January 10th, 2023, as well as speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper for "60 Minutes" in a separate statement where he discusses how difficult it is for him to keep his discussions with his family members personally. He claimed that whenever he has tried to have a private discussion with members of his royal family, he was informed, leaks were made, and narratives were planted against him and his wife. A trailer was released ahead of his interview on '60 Minutes' with the CNN anchor who asked Prince Harry if he sees a day in the future when he would return as a full-time member of the royal family which Prince Harry said that he does not.
The Duke stated that his family's motto is "never complain, never explain," but that it is just a motto, and that the people from the royal family or someone who is working with the family members would feed or converse with the correspondent spoon-feeding them the details about the narrative they want to be published and that correspondent will write a story. Prince Harry further claimed that at the bottom of the story, the correspondent or publication house will state they've managed to reach out to Buckingham Palace for a remark and that the entire thing is Buckingham Palace making a comment, which is completely untrue. After six years of being informed that the house could indeed not state to safeguard them but it will make one for other members of the family, he asserts that silence can become disloyal.
The conflict between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and members of the royal family has continued to rise following the royal couple's decision to release their Netflix docuseries "Harry and Meghan," which gives the audience an insight into their love story along with the way they were treated in the royal family along with exploring their decision to step down as senior working members of the royal family. Now with Prince Harry's forthcoming memoir "Spare," has been defined as the Duke's tell-all, the conflict seems to only increase.
According to royal expert Katie Nicholl, the docuseries have put the chances of peaceful coexistence in jeopardy for the near future. She believes that the accusations made by Harry in the last three episodes of this docuseries, which are so intimate to his brother, have put any possibility of reconciliation on hold for the foreseeable future. Katie stated that even if Prince William hasn't seen the docuseries 'Harry and Meghan', which she appears to believe he has just not, he is completely aware of the headlines and may be very conscious of the harm done to his public image, and she appears to believe it also describes why the brothers are not on the talking terms.
In an exclusive interview with Page Six in October, royal biographer Tom Bower, author of "Revenge: Meghan, Harry, and the War Between the Windsors," stated that everyone knows the Sussexes can't just change the book, but can they make it nastier? They wouldn't sell unless they did. Tom noted that there will be more substance about how they were dissed and all the other invective directed at the royal family, so he believes that the delay will add to the poison.
Harry: The Interview with Tom Bradby will air on ITV1 and ITVX on Sunday, January 8. Duke of Sussex's interview with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes will also air on CBS on Sunday and it will be available to watch on Paramount+.
