Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are “still not trusted” by William and Kate following their explosive Oprah interview, a royal expert has claimed.
Meghan and Harry sat down for a tell-all interview with Oprah in 2021, in which they made the claim that one member of the Royal Family was racist.
Vanity Fair Royal correspondent Katie Nicholl has claimed that William and Kate avoided the Sussexes during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, not because of busy schedules, but because of a lack of trust.
She told Entertainment Weekly: “I think that does signal not just a busy timetable on the part of the Cambridges but perhaps also a bit of a lack of trust. "I do know that William and Kate are worried that anything they might say or do with the fact that it could end up being leaked to the media. So, I think in the case of really having to prove now that they can be trusted.”
