Prince William wants to set the record straight and squash allegations made by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, according to a leading royal commentator. This comes after William and Kate Middleton hired Victoria O’Byrne, the director of communications for the NHS Test and Trace, as their new press secretary. Prince Charles also hired another NHS spin doctor Simon Enright to head his communications as the Royal Family plot a fightback against the damage done from the Oprah interview.

Charlie Rae, who is the former royal correspondent for The Sun, told talkRADIO Prince William’s new hire shows he wants to “put his point of view across” in light of the interview.

He added William will want to “rebuff these terrible allegations made by both Harry and Meghan”.

This comes after Prince William declared in the days following the interview that the Royal Family “are very much not a racist family”.

TalkRADIO host Kevin O’Sullivan said: “Talking of Prince Charles, he is clearly very worried and concerned about the effects on not only his reputation but the reputation of the royal Family in terms of what Harry and Meghan did with that Oprah interview.”

He added: “Charles has hired a new communications director and a new press officer to repair the damage done to this image.

“A pretty drastic move, isn’t it?”

Mr Rae responded: “It is a drastic move. The new communications officer is a communications boss at the NHS so he is used to the pressure!

“Victoria O’Byrne, who works for the NHS Test and Trace department, has been appointed at Kensington Palace to work with Prince William and Kate.

“Clearly, coming in light of the soap opera we saw with Harry and Meghan, they feel they need somebody to put their point of view across and rebuff these terrible allegations made by both Harry and Meghan.

“They are both expected to start next month.”

The new jobs were announced last week, with Mr Enright thought to be tasked with rehabilitating the heir to the throne’s image in light of damaging claims made by Harry.

Mr Enright has been at the forefront of managing the NHS communications around the coronavirus pandemic.

During the two-hour interview, the 36-year-old Harry accused his 72-year-old father Charles of refusing to return his calls in the run-up to their exit.

He also suggested the Prince of Wales had “cut him off” financially. 

Harry also claimed both William and Charles felt “trapped” in the system of British monarchy.

Both William and Charles are thought to have been “deeply saddened” by the claims.
