As promised, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are finally taking aim at the royal family, leaving their estranged UK relatives aflame over the controversy that led to Megxit!
In part of the last three episodes of Harry & MeghanThe 38-year-old prince reveals how “terrible” it feels to have his brother, Prince Williamshouted at him during a bitter fight over Harry’s eventual departure.

As the father of two said, he initially asked for a “half inside, half out” arrangement – something that would allow him and his wife to do their own thing while still supporting Queen Elizabeth II. During a family crisis meeting on the subject, he soon realizes his request will not be approved:
“But it quickly became clear that that goal was not one for discussion or debate.”
his father, King Charles IIINor did he see any benefit in refuting the press, Harry noted:
“My dad said to me, ‘Honey, you can’t be in the media. The media will always be the media.’”
As a reminder, Meghan claims the royal family is spreading stories about her in the media to protect the rest of the family, so… it’s not too surprising that some in the organization don’t want to.” media reception”. They have a mutually beneficial relationship with the press. Sigh.
Instead of possibly having a civil discussion about why Harry was so desperate to back out of his duties, the meeting turned into a shouting match of “horror”. Describing the reaction of the Prince of Wales, Charles and the late Queen, he continued:
“It was scary when my brother yelled and yelled at me, and my dad said things that were simply not true, and my grandmother just sat there quietly and absorbed it all.”
The only person he seems to identify with is his grandmother, adding:
“But you have to understand that from the point of view of the family, especially hers, there are ways to do things. And her mission and goal, her ultimate responsibility to organize… she will follow the advice she has given.”
But his sympathy will only go so far. Harry later recalled an instance when he spoke to Queen Elizabeth and arranged to meet her, with Meghan, before the split was finalized. Up until that point, she was a trusted confidant of his, he expressed:
“She knew we were having a hard time. I’ve talked to her many times about it.”
But everything changed as Megxit approached. Meghan said the couple received a text message from a royal aide telling them they were no longer allowed to see the monarch, the Queen told her grandson:
“I’ve actually been told I’ve been busy all week.”
UH. Hurt, Harry recalled:
“I was like, wow.”
“This is when a family and the family business are in direct conflict… what they are actually doing is preventing the grandson from seeing his grandmother.”
So what made the royal family so upset about Harry’s request to leave (even if only partially)?! Obviously, Harry’s desire to strip him of his responsibilities in the institute is a huge blow and will shake things up for the palace (though perhaps not as much as his eventual exit). But that’s not what the former army officer thinks created this mess – instead, he urges his family to envy suit alum:
“The problem is when a person is getting married, who is supposed to play a supporting role, then either steals the limelight or is doing a better job than the person born to do it. That annoys everyone. It upsets the balance. Because you have been led to believe that the only way your charity can succeed and your mission flourish is if you appear on the front pages of those newspapers.”
Post! What a dig for William and Princess Catherine!!

As Perezcious readers know, Harry and Meghan’s departure from the royal family isn’t just about their frustration with the media. The prototype The presenter struggled deeply with her mental health and once had suicidal thoughts. This is Harry’s last straw, he explains:
“Lies, that’s one thing. You get used to it when you live in this family. But what they’re doing to her, and the effect it’s having on her… enough is enough. Enough pain, enough suffering.”
Mental health is no joke. We commend him for sticking with his wife when no one else was available back then. It’s very important! Sadly, in the fifth episode, the California-born girl opened up about her relationship with her husband’s parents, insisting that she did everything to please them up until her exit, but it was not enough:
“I just do everything I can to make them proud and truly part of the family. And then the bubble burst.”
“I realized that not only was I being thrown to the wolves, but I was being eaten by the wolves.”
Damned. Very intense. It’s unfortunate to hear how the royals act with such anger when Harry is simply trying to ensure a better quality of life for his family. Family businesses – especially on the scale of the royal family – can get very messy, and that has certainly affected this massive family feud. Oh. Based on CNN on Thursday, Buckingham Palace reiterate that they will not be commenting on the archive at this time. React, readers Perezcious? Let us know what you think of William’s reaction (below)!
