“William has a tremendous temper. Charles has a tremendous temper.” While the royal family has yet to make an official statement in response to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Netflix documentary series, they seem to be unsatisfied.
Royal expert Christopher Andersen spoke about the family’s reaction to Us Weekly, saying not-at-all-dramatically, “Rage. I mean, look again, Harry talks about—almost matter-of-factly talks about—how his brother was shouting and screaming at him during this meeting. Terror and terrorizing, I think was the phrase used. William has a tremendous temper. Charles has a tremendous temper. It’s just not gonna be a pretty sight there.”
Prince Harry’s exact quote in the doc? “It was terrifying to have my brother scream and shout at me, and my father says things that simply weren’t true. And my grandmother, you know, quietly sit there, and sort of take it all in.”
He also accused his brother of breaking their long-standing agreement not to brief against one other in the press, saying, “I would far rather get destroyed by the press than play along with this game, or this business of trading. And to see my brother’s office copy the very same thing that we promised the two of us would never ever do, was heartbreaking.”
Again, the royals have not replied to these allegations, instead acting as if there was no drama to be found and showing up en masse at a Christmas carol event held by Kate Middleton last night, the vibes of which were clearly much more festive “There’s nothing to see here! I don’t even have a Netflix subscription! What’s a docuseries? Never heard of one!” Meanwhile, it doesn’t appear like reconciliation with the Sussexes is even on the table.
