A book claims Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were said to be upset when a lovely photo was released at the start of 2020, showing the Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George
A New Year photo showing the Queen and her three heirs led Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to believe the “entire institution” was against them, a book claims.
At the start of 2020 and to mark the new decade, Her Majesty released a stunning photo of herself standing proudly with her son Prince Charles, grandson Prince William and great-grandson Prince George.
Taken in the Throne Room at Buckingham Palace, not only was it a snap for the family album, it also clearly laid out the future of the British Monarchy.
However, according to his unauthorised biography, Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, author Andrew Motron claims the photo made Harry and Meghan question their position in The Firm.
He writes: “The royal couple suspected that the entire institution was conspiring against them. As they saw it, the evidence was all around them.
“The unspoken code was straightforward: the future of the monarchy was assured, with or without Meghan and Harry.”
Just days after the photo was released, Meghan and Harry shocked the world by sharing a status on social media saying they were stepping back from their senior roles.
Saying they had spend “many months” reflecting over the decision, they explained they planned to “carve out a progressive new role within [the] institution” while becoming financially independent.
They’ve since moved to California with their son Archie, where they have set up a new life and also welcomed a daughter Lilibet.
