Prince Harry ‘regret’ writing about Kate Middleton in ‘Spare’ – he is in a ‘painful place,’ expert claims

Prince Harry ‘regret’ writing about Kate Middleton in ‘Spare’ – he is in a ‘painful place,’ expert claims.


Over the course of the last four years, or since Harry and Meghan stepped down from their royal duties and left Britain behind, a lot has been said about the British royal family.

Both Harry and Meghan criticized the members of the Firm and shared plenty of stories of what has been going on behind closed doors. As expected, the public was eager to learn more about the family and the Sussexes gained plenty of attention.

Among the rest, they gave Oprah an interview in which Meghan revealed that a senior royal, whom she didn’t want to expose publicly, questioned the color of their then-unborn son Archie, thus accused Harry’s family of racism.

“In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time. So we have in tandem the conversation of ‘he won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title’ and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born,” Meghan Markle recalled.

She also said that when she came forward with the mental issues she had experienced at the time, the Palace turned a blind eye. According to her, her situation was severe and went so far that she became suicidal.

“I just didn’t see a solution. I would sit up at night, and I was just, like, I don’t understand how all of this is being churned out. And, again, I wasn’t seeing it, but it’s almost worse when you feel it through the expression of my mom or my friends, or them calling me crying, just, like, ‘Meg, they’re not protecting you’. And I realized that it was all happening just because I was breathing,” she explained.

At the time, the Palace released a statement.

“The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan,” the statement, released by Buckingham Palace on behalf of Queen Elizabeth, read.

“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan, and Archie will always be much-loved family members,” the statement continued.

While the Palace deemed it necessary to issue a statement addressing potential racism, one royal expert asserted that Kate Middleton played a pivotal role in including the phrase “some recollections may vary” in the statement.

In her book Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown, Valentine Low quotes a source, claiming that the first version of the statement had “a much milder version” of the “recollections” sentence.

“The debate was, do you rise entirely above it and offer the olive branch of [Harry and Meghan being] ‘much-loved members of the family’? Or is there some moment when you have to intervene and offer a view?” the source told Low, adding that Kate and Prince William wanted it “toughened up.”

“They were both of one mind that we needed something that said that the institution did not accept a lot of what had been said,” the source explained.

Since leaving Britain and settling in sunny California, Prince Harry only met Kate Middleton a handful of times, including the funerals on Prince Philip and later of Queen Elizabeth II.

When Kate, William, Harry, and Meghan appeared together at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, the idea was to spread a message that things were getting better between them, but according to some experts, it was far from the truth and was just an “illusion.”

What’s most, speaking to a senior royal, Kate was reported to have described the joint walk as “one of the hardest things she’d ever had to do.”

Of course, Kate wasn’t spared from ill comments by Harry and Meghan.

In his bestseller Spare, Harry described the feud between Kate and his wife Meghan and wrote that Kate made Meghan cry over the flower girl dresses on her wedding day. 

“It really hurt my feelings. It was a really hard week of the wedding. And she was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologized. And she brought me flowers and a note, apologizing,” Meghan said.

“I think so much of what I have seen play out [in the media] is this idea of polarity, where if you love me, you don’t have to hate her. And if you love her, you don’t need to hate me,” she added.

Harry revealed the messages exchanged between Kate and Meghan and their disagreement over Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress.

According to Harry, Kate wasn’t happy with Princess Charlotte’s dress, who was a flower-girl.

However, although Kate claimed her daughter was in distress because of the dress, which allegedly was “too big, too long, too baggy,” she refused to meet Meghan’s tailor at Kensington Palace to have it fixed.

“Meg asked if Kate was aware of what was going on right now. With her father,” Harry said. “Kate said she was well aware, but the dresses. And the wedding is in four days!”

“I’m not sure what else to say. If the dress doesn’t fit then, please take Charlotte to see Ajay. He’s been waiting all day,” Meghan texted Kate, according to Harry.

Kate replied with, “Fine.”

Harry further wrote that when he arrived home, he found his then future wife sobbing on the floor. “It was intolerable but temporary. Kate hadn’t meant any harm, I told her.”

In their book Finding Freedom, authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand claimed that “Meghan would agree with the assessment that the duchesses were not the best of friends,” and that “their relationship hadn’t progressed much since [Markle] was Harry’s girlfriend.”

Harry also alleged that Kate once “grimaced” after Meghan asked her to use her lip gloss. According to Harry, when Meghan applied some lip gloss to her fingers before using it on her lips, Kate, the then-Duchess of Cambridge, visibly shuddered.

Following Kate’s planned abdominal surgery which took place in mid-January and her revelation of having cancer, Harry and Meghan reached to her and sent their well wishes.

“King and the Princess of Wales have received support from Prince Harry and Meghan regarding their health,” a source told Mirror. “The Duke and Duchess contacted both parties in different ways to pass on their concerns and best wishes.”

While promoting her book Elizabeth & Philip: A Story of Young Love, Marriage and Monarch, royal expert Tessa Dunlop claimed Harry now finds himself in a “painful place.”

“When you do discover that your sister-in-law has cancer and you’ve written stuff that can’t be retracted, that’s quite a painful place to be in,” Dunlop said speaking to US Weekly.

The expert added, “They deliberately criticize the monarchy [and then offer] themselves as an alternative to monarchy. So then when the monarchy is in trouble, we do kind of make a comparison. Can Harry and Meghan really hold themselves off as the caring example now? They’re certainly going to have to be careful of their timing with any releases so that it doesn’t look opportunistic.”
