It threatens the royal revenge! King Charles III (73) should play with the idea of giving a big revealing interview himself – as Prince Harry (38) and Duchess Meghan (41) have already done several times. As “Mirror” reports, the BBC is currently in the middle of planning a major Charles documentary for the coronation in May. Part of it should also be an interview that Jonathan Dimbleby (78), a longtime friend of the monarch, should lead. As early as 1994, he managed to get Charles to speak openly about Princess Diana’s (1961-1997) cheating.
King Charles has not yet agreed to the interview. He should probably expect questions about criticism from Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan and the scandal surrounding Prince Andrew (62). The regent has so far remained silent in this regard. A source said: “Even a small comment about Harry and Meghan would make headlines around the world. It could also evoke a response from Harry that would be unpredictable. Everything is very delicate.”
Will Harry come to the coronation?
There is also speculation as to whether the king might take a step towards his son. According to the Mail on Sunday, Charles asked the Archbishop of Canterbury to negotiate a deal with Harry to attend the coronation. Prince William (40) should not fit this at all. He fears that on the new king’s big day, Harry will take the chance to draw all the attention to himself and Meghan.
Negotiations are underway behind the scenes as to what concessions can be made to the renegade royals. According to the British media, it should be about how much Harry and his family are involved in the ceremony, but also about how the scandal royals will continue in the future. Allegedly, Harry wanted to avoid being punished further by Charles for withdrawing from royal duties after his coronation.
Negotiations could go public
Talks with Prince Harry are currently difficult. “You have to expect that everything you discuss in confidence will end up in a new book, on television or in the newspaper,” said the former press spokesman for Queen Elizabeth II († 96) recently in a Blick interview.
