Prince Harry, Meghan Markle’s teams ‘divided’ over ‘Spare’ fallout
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s teams are said to be ‘divided’ by the fallout from his explosive memoir Spare, reported Express UK.
Nile Gardiner, a former aide to former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, recently appeared on GB News to speak about Harry’s wife Meghan’s silence since the release of her book and the ensuing backlash; according to recent polls, the Sussexes’ popularity has plummeted since Spare.
According to Gardiner: “I think the British public has really turned Harry into an outcast as a result of this very nasty book.”
“Furthermore, in the US as well, Harry and Meghan’s popularity has dropped significantly and I think Harry and Meghan definitely underestimated the level of backlash there was going to be against Spare. Hence why I think Meghan has been pretty quiet,” Gardiner added.
Host Dan Wootton then asked if he thought the Duchess of Sussex was “distancing” herself from her husband and his book to maintain her own public relations.
To that, Gardiner said, “I think we’re starting to see divisions in the Harry and Meghan camp, because this book has been absolutely disastrous, I think for their reputations and their image.”
“I think there will be a fallout, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Meghan is deeply unhappy with the backlash the book has received and is unhappy with Harry’s performance,” he also said.
at Prince Harry’s Spare was published on January 10 and broke sales records, however, the Duke of Sussex has been criticized for numerous revelations in the incendiary book.
