A ROYAL author and close friend of Princess Diana claims Prince Harry is “barely recognisable” and that Meghan Markle “always planned to leave the Royal Family”.
Robert Jobson, who knew the late princess “well”, appeared on True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat, and claimed that the Duchess of Sussex never planned on staying in the royal family.
He said: “Harry’s barely recognisable and I think she’s totally disingenuous.
“I think she had a plan from the outset that she wasn’t going to stick with it [The Royal Family] and it didn’t take long, before… all that thanking the royal family.
“The royal family would have done their best to have helped her and they would have tried.”
Last week, a statement released by the Palace said it is “not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service”.
However, Meghan and Harry then quickly hit back with their own statement which said: “We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”
Discussing the couple’s statement, royal expert Dickie – who was the Queen’s press spokesman for 12 years from 1998 to 2000 – said: “It was petulant, it was rude, it was immature.”
Meanwhile, Jobson added: “The rudeness of the statement they issued after they left! Frankly, they have been given a lot of slack, but they were damn right rude to the Queen and the Royal Family.”
