The PR fight between Buckingham Palace and Duke and Duchess of Sussex appears to have reached a new level of hostility on Sunday.
The Sunday Times wrote Tom Bradby, director of the ITV film Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, which aired on Disney in the United States
Last year, ABC claimed that the couple's plan to move to North America leaked from Buckingham Palace. "There is an indication of how toxic and honest Machiavellian the Windsor modern home has become."
Bradby claimed that the unfriendly atmosphere forced the Sussexes to leave The Firm, as the British media called the House of Windsor. "From conversations with both sides, it is pretty clear to me that this exit could be right for everyone, at least as far as the narrow self-interest is concerned," added Bradby. "But there is no doubt that Harry and Meghan feel like they have been driven out."
Rainfall started at the time of the wedding in 2018. Truly harmful things were said and done. The atmosphere was hard and early, but few meaningful attempts were made to heal the wounds. "
Buckingham Palace did not respond to a MarketWatch request for comment on Bradby's article. The Sunday Times cited a source near Buckingham Palace who denied that the Sussexes had been excluded as senior members of the royal family. A statement released last week by Buckingham Palace said the discussions were at an early stage and would take time.

Brady wrote: “The young couple, who had recently returned and refreshed after six weeks, wanted to meet with other family members and officials to discuss their plans for financial independence in a new, slimmed-down monarchy. Harry was asked to put some ideas on paper for discussion. He hesitated because such documents usually expire. "
Bradby, who attended the couple's wedding in 2018, actually claimed Harry had gotten into a PR trap. "He was convinced and did what he was asked to do," he wrote in the 1,600-word essay "Escape from the Venomous Palace." "The document or its details were released to The Sun shortly afterwards." After the Sussexes were released, her statement in the wake of The Suns Scoop: "The palace officials said they were blind," Bradby added.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced on Instagram
Wednesday that they "work to become financially independent" and move overseas. Markle left for Canada on Thursday. Harry is expected to come to her when he has a deal with his father, Prince Charles, about a new hybrid royal status. his brother Prince William; and grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II
Since her engagement three years ago, Markle has been reporting, which some have described as open and undercover racist. Newspapers reported that the queen was "disappointed" with her announcement and asked the couple to make a statement about their plans before the finances and logistics were clarified.
On Sunday, Bradby also admitted that the royal scandal is more complicated than it appears: “It is quite difficult to know who is right and who is wrong. Some other family members say that Harry, and especially his wife, are found to be extremely difficult. They feel they have done their best to make room for the newcomer. "
"Harry and Meghan, on the other hand, find some other family members (except the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh) jealous and sometimes rude."

Truly harmful things were said and done. The atmosphere was hard and early, but few meaningful attempts were made to heal the wounds. "
Harry receives an income from his father, Prince Charles, but the Sussexes are supposed to give that up. Harry, who is already worth several million dollars, owes his fortune to three famous women: his mother, the late Princess Diana, who became a global superstar; his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II; and his wife Meghan Markle, a self-made former actress born in the United States.
Markle told Bradby's ITV documentary that the often critical media attention in the UK made it difficult for her to get used to life. “I really tried to take on that British sensitivity of a stiff upper lip. I tried, I really tried, I think what it does internally is probably really harmful, ”she said. "The greatest thing I know is that I never thought it was easy, but I thought it was fair."
In his play for the Sunday Times, Bradby offered the House of Windsor what could be interpreted as a warning: “We just don't know what's next. If your cooperation in ITV documentation were characterized by qualified honesty, what would the actual deal look like? I have an idea of what could be broadcast in a full, full session interview, and I don't think it would be nice. "
“I suspect the royal family might still only be fair to British public opinion, but their international standing is an essential part of their value to the British state. If that started, it could actually be very harmful, "he wrote, adding:" But the family urgently needs a meaningful peace agreement with the young renegade couple, because a protracted war would indeed be very bloody.
