Royals weathered Harry and Meghans Megxit damage quite well, says author

An author claims after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry left The Firm, the royal family "weathered" the news of their controversial decision to step down quite well.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced in 2020 that they would step back from working royal life, in favour of lives as private citizens.

Now, the parents of two reside in a multi-million dollar home in Montecito, California – a far cry from their secure British pad, Frogmore Cottage.

Since stepping down, the pair have made several allegations against members of The Royal Family, as well as The Royal Household, including claims Meghan faced racism and was denied any help when battling with her mental health.

Royal author Clive Irving, who penned The Last Queen, told the Express: "I think it is greatly overblown, if you look at the effects of it on the institution itself, I think they've weathered it quite well.

"I think it's a question of the relationship of the two brothers and they seem to be being reconciled now."

The author went on to add: "I think that Meghan raised a very important issue about the lack of diversity in the staffing of the palace.

"The palace must reflect the world outside not the world inside, and they still haven't made that adjustment but I think the two boys are going to get together again, they're kind of natural companions."

Following the Sussexes claims, Buckingham Palace issued a rare statement on behalf of Her Majesty, saying "some recollections may vary" but the claims were being taken "very seriously".

The Queen said: "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

"The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.

"While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.

"Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members."

In the days that followed the Oprah Winfrey interview, Prince William told reporters that the royal family "were very much not racist".

Since stepping down, Harry has returned to England on two occasions, for the funeral of his grandfather, the late Prince Philip and the unveiling of a statue celebrating his mum, Diana, Princess of Wales' birthday, while Meghan remained in California.

It is currently unclear as to whether the Sussexes and their children, Archie Harrison and Lilibet Diana will jet to London for The Queen's Sapphire Jubilee this year.
