prince harry is accused


PRINCE HARRY is in “danger” of following in the lifestyle footsteps of his great-great uncle King Edward VIII, warns royal author Tom Quinn. Mr Quinn told the To Di For Daily podcast on Monday that the Duke could be heading for a “very sad life.” He said: “I think the real danger of Harry’s behaviour is that Harry will end up like that [Edward VIII]. He [Harry] doesn’t really have a role in the Royal Family because he’s the spare as it were, rather than the heir.



The royal author went on to explain their opinion: “It’s very much like his great-great uncle Edward VIII after he abdicated with Mrs Simpson. “He thought he would have a role, but suddenly he found he had nothing to do and the rest of his life was just, you know, spent moving around the world with actually very little to do.

“He couldn’t get a job and the British Government wouldn’t give him a job and he was no longer King… so it was a very sad life.” Edward VIII reigned as the British monarch from 20 January – 11 December 1936. His reign lasted for just under a year, making it one of the shortest reigns in British history at just 326 days. His abdication of the throne was a result of his love for and wish to marry Wallis Simpson, a soon-to-be-divorced American woman.



Edward realised he had to choose between the Crown and Mrs Simpson who, as a twice-divorced woman, would not have been an acceptable Queen. His time on the throne came to an abrupt end on December 11, 1936, sparking a major constitutional crisis for the Royal Family.Edward was stripped of “His Royal Highness” status and henceforth styled as the Duke of Windsor.

During World War 2, Edward was stationed as a major-general in France. However, he was later appointed Governor of the Bahamas. After the war, Edward spent the rest of his life in France, essentially in retirement as the Duke never held another official role. Despite speculation over a potential Government job, nothing ever materialised.To pass the time, Edward wrote books and became an avid gardener. But by most accounts, the Duke deeply yearned to do something more.



Prince Harry first met Meghan Markle in 2016 through a mutual friend. Just over a year later, they announced their engagement. The couple hit it off straight away. In their first sit-down interview with the BBC after their announcement, Meghan said: “We met for a drink and then I think very quickly into that we said, ‘Well what are we doing tomorrow? We should meet again.'”

Millions of people tuned in for the royal wedding at Windsor Castle in 2018. Talking about their relationship, Mr Quinn said: “She [Meghan Markle] really was the first person who absolutely dazzled him… I think, you know, he’s just been completely swept up in that. “And he will do, in the nicest way, whatever Meghan wants.



“You know, she’s taken him out of this fairly boring, I mean, they are quite boring for someone who’s young, because, you know, if you’re Prince Harry growing up, you can’t do what you like… because you’re constantly pestered by the paparazzi and you’ve never had a normal life where you’re under this pressure.

“So Meghan was like a door opening and going through that into the sunlit uplands – where everything would be different – he could have fun without all the criticism, as well as, of course being completely madly in love with Meghan.” The Duke and Duchess of Sussex carried out royal engagements as a couple until they stepped down from the Firm in 2020.



The Windsors agreed to let them pursue their own private business arrangements, provided that they cease using the word ‘royal’ in any professional branding. Harry and Meghan eventually moved to Montecito, California and currently live there with their two children, Archie, two, and Lilibet, who was born in June 2021.The Sussexes have made multi-million dollar deals with Spotify and Netflix and launched their non-profit, Archewell.

However, Mr Quinn believes the prince would like to “find a role” within the Royal Family. He said: “I don’t think Harry actually wants to destroy the Royal Family, even if some of his behaviour looks as if it might include the risk of that happening. “I think he just really does want to find a role.”



Mr Quinn went on to speculate that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may be interested in a royal comeback in the future, saying: “Both Meghan and Harry believe that when the elder royals die – in other words, Elizabeth – they may well be able when Charles is King, be able to come back and be the part-time royals that they really wanted to be. “So that they would be six months [as] working royals and six months in the States or wherever doing their own thing.”
