Queen Elizabeth’s Christmas speech was the ‘final straw’ for Meghan and Harry, according to authors

All eyes are once again on the royal family as Harry’s memoir is currently being written.

The book, which is slated for release in the coming weeks, is widely anticipated by the public and the media, according to the publishing house Random House. 

“Spare takes readers immediately back to one of the most searing images of the twentieth century: two young boys, two princes, walking behind their mother’s coffin as the world watched in sorrow and horror.

“With its raw, unflinching honesty, Spare is a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief.”

When Harry announced his book, he said, “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born, but as the man, I have become. I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.”

“I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a first-hand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”

One could argue that what the book is likely to expose will further rupture ties between Harry and his family. Several outlets claimed the book will contain a number of bombshells, however no one can predict with precision what the prince will say.

The family is currently preparing for Christmas just like any other family out there. Over the years, the Queen herself has held family get-togethers for the occasion. But now that she has passed away, King Charles, the new king, will be holding the Christmas festivities.

According to US Weekly, the Prince and Princess of Wales are eager to spend the most wonderful day of the year in Sandringham with their family. They do this in order to establish a yearly family ritual for their three children.

“It’s important to them that their kids share childhood traditions like their school pals,” the insider told Us Weekly in 2018.

“They’re going all-out to make it extra special.”

They, however, would certainly attend the formal dinner on Christmas Eve, often including Norfolk shrimp and lamb.

Tradition dictates that an English breakfast of eggs, sausages, bacon, and beans is served in the morning.

The royals eat their Christmas supper, with a roast turkey as the main course, after the customary visit to St. Mary Magdalene Church.

As previously reported, King Charles will serve as the event’s host this year. At the same time, for the first time ever as King, he would deliver the yearly speech after 70 years.

The public is keen to watch, but royal analysts predict that Harry and Meghan won’t be among those to pay attention to what the King has to say given that they are said to have previously turned down the opportunity to spend Christmas with the royal family.

Another explanation is that, in accordance with experts, it was the Queen’s speech in 2019 that served as the deciding factor in the Sussexes’ decision to resign from their royal duties.

There were many pictures of every member of the family in the backdrop as the Queen delivered the disputed speech to the nation, but neither Meghan nor Harry’s. Many saw this as evidence that the Sussexes weren’t seen as an essential component of the family. The couple had already begun their move to a life outside of royalty at the time. But “photo-gate,” as it was referred as in several tabloids, was the icing on the cake.

Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand of the biography Finding Freedom claim that Harry and Meghan felt like they “had long been sidelined by the institution and were not a fundamental part of its future.”

“One didn’t have to look further than the family photos displayed during the Queen’s Speech on Christmas Day,” they wrote.

“Palace sources insisted that the photos were chosen to represent the direct line of succession, but for Harry and Meghan, it had been yet another sign that they needed to consider their own path.”

Allegedly, before the speech, Queen Elizabeth removed a photo of Harry and Meghan, but left one showing her and Prince Philip meeting Archie for the very first time.

“(The queen) loves all of her children and grandchildren, there’s no doubt about that,” he told Today. “But when it comes to ‘The Firm,’ as they call the royal family, she is all business,” author Christopher Andersen wrote.

“That’s why she wouldn’t allow Harry and Meghan to remain as kind of part-time royals on the terms that they wanted.”
