In a revelation causing ripples within the world of monarchy and celebrity, recent reports suggest King Charles III was deeply concerned about the overshadowing influence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the Royal family.
As the duo began making waves in the media after they decided to step back from senior Royal roles in 2020, the monarch's unease reportedly grew. Sources say that Charles, in his strategic manoeuvring, wanted to ensure the Suss*xes didn’t dominate the main narrative of the Royal family.
It was reported by the New York Post that Charles did not support the couple's choice to redefine their roles within the institution. Interestingly, insiders have noted that the media magnetism of Harry and Meghan surpassed that of other royals, including Charles himself, as well as Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Their unique appeal brought both spotlight and scrutiny, which some believed was impacting the traditional image of the monarchy.
King Charles' Strategic Maneuvering
To manage the situation, it is alleged that Charles sought to control the narrative by removing the security details of Harry and Meghan.
An insider revealed, "The strategy was clear. Either have the Suss*xes within the protective fold of the Royal family in Britain or position them so they wouldn't eclipse the prominence of other family members." Another source commented on the media dynamics, pointing out, "The undeniable fact remains that Harry and Meghan generate more headlines than King Charles with Camilla or even William with Kate.
Their global influence and the idea of them continuing public service overseas, beyond the control of the Royal Institution, was a scenario that the monarchy couldn’t allow." Further reports suggest Charles took several measures to navigate this delicate situation.
The removal of security was just the beginning. He allegedly endorsed a sustained media campaign in the UK against the Suss*xes, intensifying scrutiny on them and those associated with them. These revelations provide a rare glimpse into the intricate dynamics of the modern Royal family, emphasizing the intersection of tradition, media, and influence in the 21st century.
