Statements about Harry and Charles cause confusion
Duchess Meghan is back! Ex-Senior-Royal surprised at the end of August with a detailed interview. And again, she doesn’t mince words. But one statement in particular raises pressing questions.
The conversation between Duchess Meghan, 41, and journalist Alison P. Davies for “The Cut” should not have had a positive effect on her royal relatives in Britain. On the contrary: As you read, you could almost hear the breaking sound of the china that must have been broken in the distant Buckingham Palace. Prince Harry’s wife, 37, chats about her eventful life — and since 2018, it’s included plenty of offside experience as a royal, according to her descriptions in the now-legendary interview with Oprah Winfrey, 68, in March 2021. Also her current cover story in the supplement to “New York” magazine discusses her relationship with the Windsors at some points. But in doing so, she jeopardizes the relationship between her husband and his father with an apparently misleading statement.
Duchess Meghan: Has she driven a wedge between Harry and Charles with this sentence?
Actually, she wanted to leave the British press forest. But now Meghan is teasing her worst enemies since her engagement to Queen Elizabeth’s grandson, 96. Britain’s press is getting the fat off. No wonder their eager royal correspondents are now coming down on their statements, which may well deepen the rift with the royal family.
One of these frankly honest statements could do even more: It could widen the rift between father and son and make their alleged differences irreconcilable. “Harry said to me, ‘I lost my father in this process.’ It doesn’t have to be for them like it is for me, but it’s his choice.” A sentence construction that led many of her readers to assume that her husband, due to his exit from royal duties, felt that Prince Charles, 73, no longer had a trusted and loving family member in his life.
“Prince of Wales loves his two sons”
A source close to the heir to the throne was quick to respond, suggesting to the Daily Mail that the father-of-two would be upset if his youngest felt their relationship was lost. “The Prince of Wales loves his two sons,” the insider said. There was outrage in the air. But Meghan received support from an unsurprising source.
To prevent further irritation and suspected misinterpretation, Meghan’s biographer Omid Scobie, 41, suddenly jumped aside for the allegedly misunderstood. On his Twitter channel, he tried to be an unofficial mediator between the Duchess of Sussex and her writers’ guild critics, clarifying what he believed had been misinterpreted. In his understanding, the king was not talking about Charles in her statements, but about her own father Thomas Markle, 78.
Who is the father of thought?
There seems to be confusion in some headlines about this quote in The Cut interview. I understand that Prince Harry is actually referring to Meghan's loss of her own father, and Meghan is saying she doesn't want Harry to lose his. — Omid Scobie (@scobie)

“There seems to be some confusion about this quote in The Cut interview in some headlines,” Omid said. “My understanding is that Prince Harry is actually referring to Meghan’s loss of her own father and Meghan is saying that she doesn’t want Harry to lose his.” If that is indeed the case, the author of the story has falsified the alleged origin statement in Scobie’s sense with some confusing punctuation marks. The only one who could provide an answer to this burning question has so far remained silent. A request to the Sussexes’ team from the “Daily Mail” has so far remained unanswered.
