Prince Harry 'resurrecting all matters for own profit' as Sussexes become 'figures of fun'

NewsPrince Harry 'resurrecting all matters for own profit' as Sussexes become 'figures of fun'

Prince Harry is “resurrecting” matters about his family for “essentially his own profit” after the Duke’s bombshells regarding royal life.

That’s the verdict of royal historian Robert Lacey, author of the 2020 book Battle of Brothers: William and Harry – the Inside Story of a Family in Tumult, who argues Harry is becoming a “figure of fun” over in the US.

His comments refer to Harry’s bombshell memoir Spare which made a series of claims about his life, including stories about Prince William and Kate, Princess of Wales.

King Charles III is set to officially be crowned monarch of Britain and the Commonwealth at the Coronation next month.

And despite it being a monumental moment for the 74-year-old, Harry threatens to overshadow it, Lacey claimed.

Speaking to GB News this week, the author said: “At this moment of such importance in his father’s life, [he is] resurrecting these matters for essentially his own profit.

“What’s interesting at the moment is even in America, the once popular Sussexes are now figures of fun.”

Earlier in April, a YouGov poll conducted for Newsweek showed that Harry and his wife Meghan Markle’s popularity had taken a major dive in recent months.

The stats found Harry’s popularity with Americans had sunk to 46 percent in the first quarter of 2023 – a drop of six percentage points to the last quarter of 2022.

Overall, the survey found, Harry had a net approval rating of 20 percent. Meanwhile 26 percent said they “disliked” the Duke of Sussex.

His popularity dip comes after the couple released a series of products into the mainstream media, including Spare and their six-part Netflix documentary entitled Harry & Meghan.

The dip was discussed by TalkTV’s royal correspondent Sarah Hewson, who argued that these glimpses into their lives had actually negatively impacted the couple and their relationship with the Royal Family.

She added: “There is no doubt that the Oprah interview, the Netflix documentary and the book Spare have caused immeasurable damage to the relationship between Harry and his family.

“Coming on his own is going to be a daunting prospect for him, but he has to be there. His dad really wanted him to be there, it would have been very sad if he wasn’t.”

Harry is set for his first royal function since Spare was released in January when King Charles III takes to the throne on May 6 at Westminster Abbey.
