Charles' ruthless move towards Harry and Meghan: 'Won't hold back'

A royal expert has claimed King Charles "won't hold back" when it comes to his son Prince Harry, daughter-in-law Meghan Markle and even his grandchildren Archie, three, and Lilibet, one.

Kate Nicholl, author of The New Royals, told GB News that her sources have revealed that the public will soon see "the ruthless side" of the new King, who will not allow the reputation of the Firm to be "tarnished" or "trashed".

"King Charles won't hold back and might even deprive the Sussex family of their titles, along with those of their children Archie and Lilibet," she said.


Ms Nicholl has claimed that it's no coincidence Archie and Lilibet have yet to receive a title, as Charles likely won't do so until he feels Harry and Meghan have earned his trust and respect.

She also claimed that when Harry and Meghan were in the UK for the Queen's funeral last month, they realised a lot of things in Harry's upcoming memoir, as well as their Netflix documentary, "would potentially look very insensitive so soon after the Queen's death".

While she believes Harry and Meghan aren't afraid to be critical of the royal family, the author added, "Timing is everything."

William 'can't completely forgive' Harry

It comes after Ms Nicholl claimed the reason Prince William can't forgive his brother is due to Harry stepping down from the royal family in 2020.

"[When Harry stepped back from his royal duties], it was very difficult for William, and I think that’s partly why this rift hasn’t been resolved, because, you know, William can’t completely forgive Harry for what he’s done," the author told Us Weekly.

"It had a huge impact on him, on [Princess] Catherine, on their young family. It put them in that prime sort of centre. It moved them centre stage far sooner than they would otherwise have been.

"… I think William had always expected that he would have the support of his brother. And I think it wasn’t just that Harry had chosen to leave and to stand down. I think a lot of it was how he chose to do that and what William saw as great disrespect to the institution and to his, to his family, to his grandmother."
