Royal Correspondent Says Prince Harry and Meghan Can No “longer play bad palace card”

Published 09/12/2022, 9:00 AM EDT

Things can get tougher for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle following the demise of Queen Elizabeth II. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a dramatic exit from the royal family in 2022 to live on their own in California. However, they managed to upset their subjects back in the United Kingdom. In a historic interview on Oprah Winfrey’s show, Harry and Meghan pitted themselves against the royal family as they levied some serious allegations on the latter. The former working royals had all the plans to bring more about the royal family into the limelight.

Last year, Harry signed a $27 million deal with Penguin Random House Publication for his memoir. It is speculated that the Prince will be delivering some harsh truth bombs in the book. Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also have a million-dollar deal with Netflix to come up with original content including shows, docuseries, and other things to excite the audience. However, with the death of Her Majesty, a royal correspondent thinks playing the bad Palace card is no longer an option for the Royal couple.

The royal correspondent Daniela Elser believes that it will be nothing less than stupidity for Netflix and Penguin Random House Publication to release anything that is against the House of Windsor. Queen Elizabeth II’s demise has sent the entire world into a state of mourning. The Royal family has been receiving a lot of love and condolence post the demise of Her Majesty.

With so much sympathy for King Charles III and the Windsor family, Harry and Meghan can struggle to find buyers for their content that most probably bashes the late Queen and the Royal family. 

“Americans today are demonstrating a surprising level of public grief. As of now, the Sussexes are no longer able to play the Bad Palace card,” Elser said in her post for News.com.au.

The correspondent also added that Netflix and Penguin publications are facing a huge predicament regarding the release of content that will be against the public sentiment towards the Queen and House of Windsor.
