Announces with King Charles III. new Zoff on?

The death of Queen Elizabeth II could be a turning point in the relationship between Harry and Meghan and the British royal family. After all, Charles uses his first speech as king to express his “love for Harry and Meghan.” But there are also signs that the fissures are deepening.
There wasn’t enough time for a final visit to his grandmother, although Prince Harry happened to visit his old home during the historic week. But at the time of Queen Elizabeth II’s last breath at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, Harry’s plane was still in the air there. On his deathbed, he was denied a final hug or even a final reconciliation. That other royals also thought so, leaked out in the British press much later.
Harry was the last to arrive at Balmoral and the first to leave the next morning. Meghan stayed away from the Scottish estate. The couple decided to do this because Duchess Kate also stayed at home because of the children, according to insiders in the couple. Others rumored that Meghan was explicitly not wanted, such as the “Daily Mail” widely reported.
“It’s as if the grandmother of all of us has passed away,” is often said among Britons these days. However, in Harry’s case, the grandmother actually died. The death of Queen Elizabeth II could mark a turning point in his relationship with “The Firm” – the British royal family – as the relationship with his father Charles is complicated.
“Grandma” Elizabeth had a special place in Harry’s heart
After all, Charles explicitly used his first address to the nation as king to express his “love for Harry and Meghan, who continue to build a life abroad”. At the same time, however, he also made Kate the “Princess of Wales” – an obvious dedication to the family of the heir apparent William, with whom Harry and Meghan, who live in California, have a particularly complicated relationship. Diana, the mother of Harry and William, was last known by the title “Princess of Wales”.
“Grandma” Elizabeth had a special place in Harry’s heart. While the royal family fondly shared anecdotes about the Queen and Prince Philip, Harry accused his father in a television interview with US talk show host Oprah Winfrey last year of having cut him off financially and not answering his calls.
In the legendary conversation with Winfrey, Meghan and Harry also accused the royal family of racism and a lack of support – and then took the Queen out of the line of fire. She was by no means the “Racist Royal”, whom she didn’t specifically want to name. Father Charles did not receive such a free pass from his son. It is widely accepted that the Queen was Harry’s beloved grandmother, a royal insider told the Telegraph. “But she was also the head of the institution he scolded.” Other sources told The Times shortly before her death that the Queen was tired of “sitting on hot coals waiting for the next bomb to go off”.
Gap between Sussexes and the Royal Family
For the past few months, Meghan and Harry have only deliberately and sparingly directed their tips against the royal family — enough to keep interest, which is good for business, as the Times recently speculated. Excitement was interspersed with glamorous appearances like the Queen’s Jubilee, which seemed more like a cautious approach.
When it comes to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as Harry and Meghan are still officially called, the British tabloid press doesn’t need much to bring out the sharp artillery. A home story featuring Meghan in her California villa in an American lifestyle magazine is called the “Bombshell Interview”, although the most notable statement in it is that Meghan can no longer remain silent outside the royal family and that she wants to get active on Instagram again.
Like a dark cloud on the horizon, the prospect of Harry’s memoirs, which he planned to publish later this year, has been hanging over London’s Buckingham Palace for months. Whether this plan will change after the monarch’s death from consideration for the grieving kingdom remains to be seen. The prospect of the couple shooting even sharper without the beloved “Granny” at the helm is also thought to be possible. “It appears that the Queen’s death does little to close the gap between the Sussexes and the royal family,” the Telegraph said.
