Following Queen Elizabeth II’s death, King Charles III is said to have demanded a large sum of money from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The monarch’s worst nightmare is that the Duchess of Sussex is scheduled to give the first interview following the Queen’s death on her Spotify podcast, “Archetypes.”
The third installment of the contentious podcast was supposed to be released on Tuesday. Still, it has been postponed, and the next broadcast is scheduled for Sept. 20, the day after Queen Elizabeth II’s state burial at Westminster Abbey.
The day marks the start of a new feud between the King and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, following King Charles III’s refusal to allow the former “Suits” star to attend Queen Elizabeth II’s deathbed at Balmoral Castle.
According to Radar Online, Prince Harry’s father was “surprised” by Meghan’s podcast, and another episode could be the “first interview” conducted by any member of the British royal family since the Queen’s death.
According to the insider, while the issue is significant, it is the last thing King Charles III needs to think about right now.
“The King does not want the Duchess of Sussex discussing anything about the family’s interactions or events surrounding this very solemn occasion.”
Regarding the monarch’s request, the source stated that he would be urging advisers to encourage Prince Harry to persuade his wife to “stop the podcast once and for all,” as he is “extremely concerned” that his daughter-in-law may be unaware of the gravity of the situation.
In reality, according to the source, King Charles III is aware of what the Duchess of Sussex stated in a recent interview: she was never forced to sign anything that would prevent her from disclosing British monarchy secrets.
“He knows Meghan is staunch in her opinion that she, not the family, has control over what she says publicly.”
Furthermore, the Queen hopes that “common sense, civility, and moderation” will ensure that the California-born B-list celebrity refrains from discussing the Windsor family or Queen Elizabeth II’s death.
Aside from the risk that facts about Her Majesty’s death will be exploited, her oldest son may also be portrayed negatively.
After all, King Charles III reportedly advised Prince Harry that visiting the ailing Queen on her deathbed would be inappropriate.
Queen Elizabeth II died in Balmoral Castle on September 8, UK time.
