Prince William’s decision to not retaliate to claims made in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive series has been applauded by other royals, an expert has said. The six-part show, particularly the final three episodes, saw the Duke and Duchess of Sussex level a number of claims at the royals.

The claims included that William “screamed and shouted” at his younger brother during the Sandringham Summit, prior to his and Meghan’s exit and that Meghan and Kate had an awkward first meeting.

According to royal expert Ingrid Seward, members of the Royal Family, in particular the King and Queen Consort, have been supportive towards William and his wife, Kate.

Ms Seward told the Mirror: “Other family members are being supportive, especially the duty-bound King and Queen.

“[They] understand how the accusations in Harry and Meghan’s extensive Netflix interviews have been incredibly hurtful.

“Rather than stooping to their level, they have been applauded the couple’s decision to not retaliate in any way.”

Speaking of the couple’s new roles within the monarchy, Ms Seward said that the couple have worked to make sure the transition has been as smooth and stress-free as possible.

She noted that Kate’s main “priority” was to be with the children at Adelaide Cottage on the day that the Queen passed away, as it marked the three children’s “first day at their new school”.

Ms Seward said: “Suddenly and unexpectedly the world had changed for them all”, adding that the family-of-five had only “recently moved to the elegant little house on the Windsor estate.”

She noted that despite the change, the three children have “happily adapted” with William and Kate having to “follow suit” with their new roles and adapt to “full-time official royal duties”.

The Prince and Princess of Wales, Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and four-year-old Prince Louis moved to Windsor, from their home in London, just before the new school term began in early September.

The children now all attend Lambrook School and were spotted arriving with both of their parents for their taster day on September 7, the day before the death of the late Queen.
