‘Harry was weak!’ Duke blasted as Meghan’s ‘disingenuous’ claims dismantled point-by-point – Express

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey continues to be torn apart by royal experts, who seek to point out the many factual inaccuracies made by the couple. Many experts level the blame on Meghan Markle, who made the bulk of accusations when she chatted to the chat-show host alone, but biographer Robert Jobson has said Prince Harry should shoulder some of the responsibility for the interview.

Mr Jobson told Express.co.uk the interview involved a lot of “confused messages”, which showed the former US actress “did not understand the system very well”.

He used the examples of their son Archie not being given a Prince title and the issue of his security as two examples of this.

But the royal biographer did not think Meghan was outright lying, instead she was “being disingenuous”.

When listing off the factual inaccuracies made in the TV interview, Mr Jobson said he was surprised Harry had not corrected his wife.

As a result, he said the Queen’s grandson came across as “a bit weak”.

The expert said: “The stuff about him not getting protection because he hasn’t been made a prince, that was completely wrong.

“And it’s not for the Queen to decide whether he gets protection anyway, it is for the Home Office.

“So the fact they got things wrong that slightly undermined their argument particularly with the fake marriage.

During Meghan and Harry’s two-hour interview with Oprah, Meghan said their son had been denied a Prince title.

She also accused an unnamed member of the Royal Family of racism.

The Duchess told Oprah: “In those months when I was pregnant, we had in tandem the conversations of him not being given security or a title, and also concerns about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.

“They didn’t want him to be a prince or princess, not knowing what the gender would be, which would be different from protocol, and that he wasn’t going to receive security.”

Royal experts have since pointed out the Palace did not purposefully snub Meghan and Harry’s son, as royal rules do not entitle the tot to an HRH title.

The rules, laid down by King George V in 1917, state, only the children and grandchildren of a sovereign have the automatic right to the title HRH and prince or princess.

At the time Archie was born, he was the great-grandchild of a sovereign, not a grandchild.

When Prince Charles ascends the throne Archie would then be entitled to a title.

Robert Jobson has written several books on the Royal Family, including the No.1 selling book ‘Diana: Closely Guarded Secret’ in 2002.

His most recent book, ‘Prince Philip’s Century: The Extraordinary Life of the Duke of Edinburgh’ is available to buy now.
