THE Royal Family should not apologise to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, according to an Express.co.uk poll.
Readers voted in our online poll on whether the royals should say sorry to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the wake of Harry’s latest accusations of “total neglect” by his family.A huge 95 percent of respondents said the Royal Family should not apologise to the couple – who have quit royal duties for a new life in America.
Just five percent thought the royals should say sorry to Harry and Meghan. Commenting on this website, one reader blasted: “They have nothing to apologise for.”Another said of the Sussexes: “They should apologise to the royals and the public.” A third called for Harry and Meghan to be stripped of their titles, saying: “Remove all royal titles from the two of them, even IF they apologise to the Royal Family.”
Another insisted the royals should not say sorry, and said: “They have absolutely nothing to apologise for. “Harry is the one that has caused all the problems. He should get down on his knees and beg for forgiveness.”A fifth added: “There is nothing to apologise for.” One more fumed: “Absolutely not. It is M&H who need to apologise.”
Our poll comes after Harry made his latest set of claims about the Royal Family during his new Apple TV+ documentary series on mental health with Oprah Winfrey, called ‘The Me You Can’t See’. The Duke accused the royals of “total neglect” when Meghan was left feeling suicidal by social media trolling.He said: “Every single ask, request, warning, whatever it is, to stop just got met with total silence or total neglect.”
Harry added: “We spent four years trying to make it work. We did everything that we possibly could to stay there and carry on doing the role and doing the job.” The Duke also took aim at his father Prince Charles’s parenting skills.He said: “My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I, ‘Well it was like that for me so it’s going to be like that for you’.
“That doesn’t make sense. Just because you suffered doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer, in fact quite the opposite – if you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences you had, that you can make it right for your kids.”Harry also warned he would “never be bullied into silence” in the future. The Duke’s comments come after he appeared to suggest the Prince of Wales, the Queen and Prince Philip had all failed as parents during an appearance on the Armchair Expert podcast earlier this month.
The Sussexes – who are living in California after Megxit saw them quit as working royals – made a series of damaging claims about the monarchy during the TV interview, which aired in March.
