Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may not be welcomed by Britons if they return for King Charles’s coronation, a royal expert claimed. Phil Dampier made the comments after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Netflix show sparked controversy. Royal expert Phil Dampier said, “If King Charles wants to leave a door open to Harry and Meghan or invite them to his coronation that’s up to him. But don’t be surprised if they get a hostile reception from the public.” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quit royal duties in 2020 for a new life in the US. The couple released the first three episodes of their six-part Netflix series. “Some of this is deeply offensive to all those in the Commonwealth, and of course the late Queen’s legacy. The real risk is that people are learning about the Commonwealth for the first time through hearing this,” a report in the Telegraph said.
Meanwhile, Meghan Markle prompted anger over her “mocking” demonstration of a curtsy to Queen Elizabeth II. Royal author Gyles Brandreth said, “It’s embarrassing, because it is mocking – and nobody curtsies to the Queen like that, and nobody would have advised her to do it that way.” The author said about Prince Harry, “He would know that the bow, as it were, is a brief nod and the curtsy is to show respect for the sovereign, and in the case of the Queen – a lady in her 90s who actually had earned respect through a lifetime of service, and that was it. “To do this sort of mocking thing is uncomfortable, but it is a cultural difference. It’s like you would do a curtsy if you were playing in Snow White,” the royal author added.
