Meghan Markle’s real feelings about the UK according to royal author Tina Brown

A former magazine editor has accused Prince Harry and Meghan of being “addicted to drama”, claiming they are unlikely to return to the royal fold because the duchess “disliked England”.

Tina Brown, author of The Palace Papers: Inside The House Of Windsor – The Truth And The Turmoil, says the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made a series of “bad choices” and had they not been so “hot-headed”, they could have left the royal family on better terms.

Brown, who previously edited Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, made the comments during an appearance on New York Times podcast Sway to promote her new book.

The author says Harry has always been a “very impetuous man” whom those within the palace thought would leave the monarchy, saying he was “so fragile, so combustible, he was so unhappy, frankly, in the constraints of the royal family”.

However, the way in which the duke left caused “maximum mayhem” and proved to be a “disaster” for both Harry and Meghan and the royal family, according to Brown.

“I actually think there is a Harry-shaped hole in the royal family now, and Harry was beloved, actually, by the British people. And people adored Meghan when she came into the mix,” Brown tells the podcast.

“So it was actually very, very sad for everybody that it went so wrong, because they actually need Harry and Meghan now.

“You should see, the Queen is failing, and she’s very frail. They kind of need Harry and Meghan to bring that star power and to be on the balcony at the Jubilee. We have to have a royal family up there. We can’ t have Andrew up there.”

Brown believes Harry could return to the monarchy following the Queen’s death, however Meghan may be the reason he chooses not to as she dislikes England.

“I think that Harry is going to want to come back when the Queen dies, to serve his country, and I think they will find a way to reel him in,” Brown explains.

“And it’s possible that Meghan—maybe they will have a commuter arrangement. I don’t know. I don’t see Meghan ever wanting to go back. She disliked England.”

Brown says the Queen and Prince Charles are both “keen” for Harry and Meghan to join the family, with their children, for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June, claiming the family has been offered full security by Buckingham Palace to further entice them to participate.

This would mean Her Majesty would be able to meet great-granddaughter Lilibet, 10 months, for the first time.

The Sussexes aren’t making their return to the UK any easier, with Prince Harry having given another controversial interview, this time with NBC’s Hoda Kotb.

The interview, which aired earlier this month, has been slammed by royal followers – in particular his comment he is making sure the “right people” are surrounding the Queen. Royal biographer Angela Levin labelled this comment a “gross insult to all the royal family” via a column she penned for The Sun.

Queen Elizabeth marks 70 years on the throne this year and recently celebrated her 96th birthday. Harry and Meghan recently visited with Her Majesty on their way to the Invictus Games in the Netherlands.
