A royal expert has shared an ominous warning ahead of Harry and Meghan’s proposed ‘tell-all’ interview on their bombshell royal step-down, claiming it could expose some disastrous dirty royal laundry.
Journalist Tom Bradby, who created the ITV documentary that included Meghan’s explosive comments about her difficulty adjusting to royal life, has spoken out about the pair’s reported decision saying it’s a risky move.
“I have some idea of what might be aired in a full, no-holds-barred, sit-down interview and I don't think it would be pretty,” the reporter wrote for the Sunday Times.
The reporter claimed the pair’s inclusion in the ITV documentary last November was controlled and ‘qualified’.
Given the fallout from the interview, he warns the ‘real deal’, a no-holds-barred deep dive into their motivations for stepping back from the royal family, could be ‘disastrous’.
The Times reported separately that royal insiders fear Meghan would brand members of the family “racist and sexist” in a PR disaster of epic proportions.
“But the family urgently needs a meaningful peace deal with the young breakaway couple, because a protracted war would be very bloody indeed,” Tom wrote in his piece.
“If (the royal family’s reputation) were to be tarnished, it could be very damaging indeed."
Emergency meeting called
Prince Harry has already been summoned to meet Queen Elizabeth on Monday evening, for an emergency meeting.
The 35-year-old royal will be joined at Sandringham by his father Prince Charles and his brother Prince William, with Duchess Meghan said to joining them via conference call.
The ‘upcoming crisis talks’ will be the first time the four have met since the issue engulfed the royal family.
It is believed Charles will be travelling from Birkhall in Scotland, William from his Kensington Palace apartment and Harry from Frogmore Cottage near Windsor Castle.
The Queen and other senior royals are reportedly “hurt” by Harry and Meghan’s bombshell announcement to step back from their senior roles, become financially independent, and split their time between the UK and North America.
On Thursday, the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William gave orders for their households to work with the Sussex team to quickly find a "workable solution" to their desire to change the direction of their royal lives, but still support the Queen.
