After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix documentary series, the royal family may distance themselves in case they plan a new series.
in a new interview Royal reports from Sky News Australia, Commentator Louise Roberts said the Sussexes would try to use the coronation to maintain their celebrity status in the US. She also thinks the royals will see them as a liability after Harry and Meghan revealed private conversations in their Netflix documentary series and after Harry penned his explosive memoir, free.
“For the Sussexes, it’s a simple equation: their value is their proximity to the royal family,” she said. “It’s another dose of hypocrisy from them. They only make sense when they have a connection to the royal family.”
She added, “Their claims are also getting more and more outrageous. Who knows what they will say when they leave the UK and return to the US after their coronation.
“The problem is that anyone who might approach them, like William and Kate, won’t tell them anything. Everyone’s scared,” she said. “It’s all about selling, and every indiscretion or aside could be amplified by an American audience to profit from it,” she warned.
Commentator Angela Mollard said it was “impossible” for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to be on the balcony of Buckingham Palace on coronation day.
The royal tradition of standing on the Buckingham Palace balcony was started by Queen Victoria in 1851. Senior members of the royal family are often seen on balconies during major events such as weddings, historic anniversaries and the monarch’s birthday.
According to Mollard, “People hate them. There’s no way they’re on a balcony. The Queen wants to streamline the monarchy, (and) Charles is furthering that.”
However, before the Sussexes stepped down from royal duties in January 2020, they did appear on balconies.
