Harry and Meghan have been brutally honest about their strained relationship with the Royal Family year. While carving a new life of financial freedom, the couple have landed lucrative deals with Netflix, Spotify and Apple TV, where they have spoken out about their shocking reasons for quitting their royal duties. Now Harry is set to publish a tell-all memoir “not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become”.

However, royal commentator and author Harry Mount criticised the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for using “royal gossip” as a way to keep them hitting the headlines.

He added they may soon struggle to use this trick as they are getting “decreasing access” into the monarchy while they live thousands of miles away in the US.

He wrote in the Telegraph: “The problem is that, so far, the Sussexes haven’t revealed much solid broadcasting or literary talent.

“The mass attention they crave only goes with royal revelations of the sort they poured out to Oprah Winfrey.

“But, when it comes to royal gossip, the Sussexes are feeding off dwindling resources.

“Living in LA, thousands of miles from Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace, they are getting decreasing access to the heart of the royal action.

“Harry is said to be keen to get back to Britain for a royal christening, attended by the Queen, for Lilibet Diana, his newborn daughter.

“That would make for a nice, uplifting last chapter in the autobiography – and perhaps be an ideal moment to close the book on the couple’s busy publicity schedule, too.”

His comments come after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex plunged the Royal Family into a crisis with their controversial TV interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.

They alleged that one unnamed member of the family had asked how dark their son Archie’s skin might be before he was born.

Oprah later clarified that Harry had said it was not the Queen or her 99-year-old husband Prince Philip who made the comments about the colour of Archie’s skin.

Harry said during the interview: “That conversation, I’m never going to share.

“But at the time, it was awkward. I was a bit shocked.”

Harry also spoke about his relationship with William as he talked about him and Charles being “trapped” within the Firm.

He said: “I was trapped, but I didn’t know I was trapped.

“But the moment that I met Meg, and our worlds collided in the most amazing of ways and then [I began] to see how trapped within the system, like, the rest of my family are.

“My father and my brother, they are trapped. They don’t get to leave, and I have huge compassion for that.”

He also added his relationship with his brother William was “spaced” but he loved him to bits.

Harry said: “As I’ve said before, I love William to bits. He’s my brother. We’ve been through hell together.

“I mean, we have a shared experience. But we’re on different paths.”

Kate was also publicly singled out by Meghan as having made her cry in the run-up to her 2018 wedding in a disagreement over flower girl dresses.

She said: “I don’t say that to be disparaging to anyone because it was a really hard week of the wedding and she was upset about something.

“A few days before the wedding, Kate was upset about something. Yes, the issue was correct about flower girl dresses.”

William was the first royal who spoke out publicly after the interview was aired as he said he had not spoken to Harry.

He also denied the Royal Family was racist.

Buckingham Palace also quickly responded the Queen was “saddened” by their claims, but added “recollections may vary”.
