The age Harry and Meghan to the United Nations on the International Day of Nelson Mandela is full of contradictions and seems to reveal the first signs of crisis between the couple, which is also dealing with the publication of an explosive book that accuses the former actress of trying to destroy the royal family and of manipulating the prince, making him her accomplice. At the UN General Assembly in New York, the Duke of Sussex gave a moving speech focused on the historical figure of the former President of South Africa and the social and humanitarian legacy he left, but he did not forget to remember his mother and love that she transmitted to him for Africa since childhood, recognizing that it was in that continent that “I felt closest to my mother, it was where I found solace when she died and it is where I knew that my wife was, in fact, my soul mate. ” Words that seemed to reaffirm his love for Meghan, but that contradicted the brusque way he’d tried to prevent his wife from holding her hand a few minutes before as they sat side by side in the audience. Now, on the 18th of July, Harry and Meghan entered the United Nations building and appeared to be in a good mood, holding hands and smiling. Photos and videos show the couple sitting before Harry’s speech, with Meghan trying to calm her husband’s nerves. However, at one point Harry finds himself free of Meghan’s hand and she doesn’t seem to like it, pulling her husband’s arm with one hand while, with the other, she grabs his arm again in a controlling gesture. Harry is seen changing his countenance, adjusting his blazer and lowering his gaze, with a facial expression that looks tense and uncomfortable.
With Meghan and Harry being one of the most scrutinized couples today, this peculiar interaction between the dukes was immediately analyzed by body language experts, who identify Meghan’s behavior as typical of someone controlling and Harry’s annoyance as a sign that something is going to happen. bad between the couple. The royal biographer and analyst Angela Levin spoke about Prince Harry’s intervention at the UN and referred to the moment when Meghan grabbed her husband’s hand as “absolutely terrible”, adding: “He looks so unhappy, so exhausted and very, very lost.” What was strangest, according to the analyst, “is that he was sitting with Meghan next to him, naturally, she grabbed his arm and he pushed him back. In turn, Meghan grabbed him with one hand and held his arm with the other so he couldn’t move,” Levin continued. An unflattering analysis for the Duchess of Sussex, which gained greater emphasis when, three days later, on 21 July, she was portrayed as “explosive”, “unpredictable” and “manipulative” in a new biography. In the pages of Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War between the Windsors, the biographer Tom Bower assures, among other things, that the actress married the queen’s grandson Elizabeth II from England out of ambition. Bower is a journalist, former BBC contributor and one of the most feared biographers of celebrities, having spent the last year investigating Meghan’s life, speaking to 80 people who have passed through her life. This unauthorized biography reveals the hidden personality of the Duchess of Sussex in a story full of anger, blackmail and pretense, not leaving Prince Harry unscathed, by identifying him as his accomplice, considering the couple a “threat” to the British royal family.
Eagerness to take center stage in the Jubilee
Tom Bower stresses throughout the book Meghan’s eagerness to take the lead, remembering the maneuvers that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex carried out with Queen Elizabeth II in an attempt to be present on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the Jubilee celebrations. “Meghan asked to be present on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in large part because she was aware of the impact she had appearing next to the Queen in the documentary being filmed for Netflix. Prince Charles was the one who most opposed her presence next to her family on the palace balcony. They ended up only making a short appearance at St. Paul’s Cathedral and left with pent-up anger for not having the high-profile role they wanted,” says Bower.
The Queen’s Relief Over Meghan’s Absence at the Funeral
Another revelation in the book is the expression of great relief – “Thank God it’s not coming” – that the Queen let slip when she learned that Meghan would not accompany her grandson on the trip to England to attend Prince Philip’s funeral in April 2021. Meghan was pregnant with a girl, whom they would call Lilibet, a choice that the Queen will not have completely liked, as she still has very much in mind the accusations made by the couple during the controversial interview they gave Oprah Winfrey, which aired in March 2021. .
After all, it was Meghan who made Kate cry
In his book, Bower accuses Meghan of lying and playing the victim in the incident with Kate Middleton a few days before the royal wedding in Windsor, in May 2018. According to Meghan, the Duchess of Cambridge was the one who starred in the moment of tension between them. and made her cry. “Then he apologized and sent me flowers,” Meghan said during the interview with Oprah Winfrey. Bower’s account presents the opposite version: “It was Kate Middleton who shed some tears over the way Meghan Markle compared Princess Charlotte to Ivy, daughter of her friend Jessica Mulroney. Both had already argued about whether or not bridesmaids should wear stockings and why Kate thought the length of Charlotte’s dress was too short.”
Attempting to help Meghan with her father
The book also recounts how the Queen and Prince Charles had a lengthy call with Meghan in an attempt to persuade her to travel to personally convince her father, Thomas Markle, to attend their Windsor wedding. Meghan rejected the idea on the grounds that it was too unrealistic to think she could discreetly travel to Mexico and meet her father without being followed by the paparazzi.
Forced comparisons with Diana
Meghan is characterized throughout the book as a manipulative person, with great power over Prince Harry, who she has been able to use to help her get what she wants. According to Bower, the idea of equating Meghan with the failed Diana, “by raising media attention, would have come from the former actress herself. knauf [assessor de imprensa do príncipe] insisted that over-dramatizing Meghan’s anguish would be counterproductive, but Harry stood his ground. If Meghan’s wish to be equaled to Diana was not fulfilled, Harry insisted, he would probably lose her.” The statement equating Meghan with Diana was made public in November 2016, five months after Harry and Meghan first met.
Terror in the Palace
During her stay at Kensington Palace, Meghan showed her bad temper and received reports of mistreatment and bullying. The Duchess “made people cry with her passive aggressive tone” and demanded first-class flights and luxury accommodation for business trips even before marrying Prince Harry, says Bower. In Revenge, the journalist illustrates Meghan’s “abusive” treatment of her own entourage, “and in particular four women who worked for her and British diplomatic personnel” during the couple’s visit to Australia. “In a fit of rage, she ended up throwing a cup of tea through the air,” describes Bower. “Although her anger may have been fueled by Harry himself, who every night dived into social media to read what was being said about the couple,” concludes the writer.
Camilla in a delicate situation
The new book about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex puts Camilla in a delicate position. According to Tom Bower, the Duchess of Cornwall made some comments during a family meeting with Prince Harry about what the child she would have with Meghan would be like. Prince Charles’ wife joked that it would be “funny” if the Dukes’ future son had “red afro” hair. Harry will have laughed at Camilla’s words, but that comment will later have provoked Meghan’s ire.
Remember that Harry and Meghan raised a lot of controversy during the interview they gave Oprah when they claimed that there was a racist member of the royal family.
The break with the royal family is deep
As with other unofficial releases, Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the biographer’s claims. The spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has not yet reacted to the publication.
All the events of recent years – in January 2020 Harry and Meghan announced that they were stepping away from royal duties in search of freedom – have shown that the conflict between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the British royal family is deep and far from over. Despite Elizabeth II’s attempts to unite the family – news circulates that she has just invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their children to spend a few days with her in Balmoral, Scotland – there is a need to protect the monarchy from threats, and Princes Charles and William are unwilling to approach Harry. With all the recent events, there is a doubt that seems to gain strength: will Harry and Meghan’s love be the test of everything?
