Royal expert Marlene Koenig argued that Prince Harry had shown himself to be a “spoiled brat” in his interview with Oprah Winfrey. During an interview with Express.co.uk, Ms Koenig argued it was the Duke’s responsibility to explain to his wife, Meghan Markle, what life would be like in the Royal Family. She outlined moments during the interview that indicated that Harry had not adequately prepared Meghan.

She added it was strange that the Duke of Sussex failed to inform his wife about the nuances of working in the Royal Family after making multiple comments about his dedication to protecting his family.

Ms Koenig said: “Why am I calling Prince Harry a spoiled brat?

“After watching that interview with my mouth gawping, I have total sympathy for Meghan Markle.

“I do think that there were elements of the press, headlines especially, that were beyond cruel.

“There is no doubt about that, but that is not to say that every headline or every article was like that because it wasn’t.”

The royal expert remarked that Prince Harry should have better prepared Meghan Markle for all the smaller details of working within the Royal Family.

She highlighted a particular concerning moment from the interview that showed Meghan’s lack of preparation.

She said: “When you hear the conversation that was in this interview, Meghan said that when she got to Royal Lodge in Windsor, she said you have to curtsy, she was like what?

“Harry, in all his statements for wanting to take care of Meghan and wanting to protect his family, he never really said if you are marrying into my family there are some things you need to know and what our life is going to be like.

“You get all these wonderful things in this life but you are part of a team.

“The fact that he never prepared her for this, even the little things like for when you meet grandma, that was a bit strange.

“There were certain things in that interview that bothered me and his actions.”

Ms Koenig also reflected on the treatment of Meghan Markle in comparison to Kate Middleton and argued in some instances it was clearly unfair. 

She added: “Someone compiled pictures of Kate and Meghan and showed that Kate wore an over the shoulder dress and the comments saying how pretty she is.

“When Meghan wears it, she is considered to be breaking protocol.

“In essence, I think Meghan Markle was the whipping boy of the press.

“No matter what she did, she was intelligent and a career woman and was coming into a situation where they perhaps should have lived together for a while to see what Royal Family life was like.”
