Relations between the British royal house and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not been the same since that media interview that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle granted to presenter Oprah Winfrey to affirm, among other things, that the royal institution was still contaminated by its secular racism.
Although in recent times the prince has tried to build bridges with his brother William or his grandmother Elizabeth II, with brief but significant meetings in private, now the journalist and royal biographer Howard Hodgson has shown his conviction that the former actress is not precisely for the work of definitively de-stressing the relations between the parties.
In the opinion of this expert, Meghan Markle would not be interested in her husband’s bond with his relatives being too close, since that situation could cause the aristocrat to travel more frequently to his native country and, perhaps, to consider a definitive return to the United Kingdom to recover his institutional responsibilities.
Asked about the supposed golden opportunity that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would have to “repair” their ties with the monarchy, Hodgson has expressed himself in very forceful terms: “I don’t think Meghan wants to repair anything. If repaired, Harry could be tempted to return and resume his role, “he said in conversation with The Sun newspaper, just before offering the shocking vision that, of these events, could have Prince Charles, heir to the throne.
“To some extent, Carlos doesn’t want things to go in that direction either. He doesn’t want to complicate his life and prefers that there be a completely direct line of succession: William and George,” said Howard Hodgson.
