This move finally broke the Palace’s back
For many years, the British Royal Family kept saying “Keep calm and carry on.”
Whatever happened, they remained dignified and silent, and never replied to tabloid rumors.
Yet, this is about to change soon.
Namely, palace officials have recently clarified that they will not remain mute after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s allegations.
Back in March, during the Oprah Winfrey interview, the couple accused the Royal Family of racism and mental abuse. Then, Best Life Online reported that the Queen reacted in a brief statement, saying that “recollections may vary” in reference to the allegations.
Once again, when Harry accused the Royal Family of being insensitive to mental health issues in his Apple TV+ documentary The Me You Can’t Seem, they kept silent.
A source said:
“At that point, the family felt it best to stay the course and do what they always did which was to keep calm and carry on. But things keep escalating. The Palace was starting to realize something had to be done about the nonstop barrage of these destructive and questionable comments.”
However, it is said that the airing of the new ITV documentary Harry and William: What Went Wrong last Sunday, has prompted the palace to decide that it was time to “step in.”
Omid Scobie, a friend of Meghan and Harry’s who published the book “Finding Freedom” revealed that Kensington Palace aides may have placed stories in newspapers regarding Harry’s mental health, and added that William was the one who directed aides to do this!
Reliable sources claim that this move was the final straw for the Palace:

“[Scobie’s] comments crossed the line and could not be ignored. William was deeply concerned about Harry’s state of mind and would have never had his staff leak stories about his brother’s mental health. Besides being protective of the family, William has been championing the need for mental health awareness for years. The Palace had to step in.”
These remarks were included in the documentary’s rough version, but references about Harry’s mental health were eliminated after palace officials intervened and cautioned ITV that they may be considered defamatory.
Scobie’s remark was broadcast in its place instead:
“I would say it was no coincidence that it was shortly after [the Bradby interview] aired, I believe the next day, that there were source quotes that came from a very senior aide at Kensington Palace that said that William was worried about his brother. Now, whether William directed that or not, no one will ever know. But it came from his household, the household that he is the boss of.”
According to an insider:
“This was clearly a warning shot that these kinds of allegations will not be left unaddressed. Harry and Meghan now know their comments and those of their supporters won’t go unchecked. It could be a game-changer.”
We support the decision of the Queen to no longer put up with all this nonsense.
Meghan and Harry are unafraid, and they would do anything to discredit the Royal Family.
Therefore, the Queen should not allow them to do this anymore.
Let’s just hope that the couple will hear the warning shot loud and clear.
