Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's shocking accusations against the royal institution could bring down the family forever, royal expert Katie Nicholl believes.
"The damage really has been long term," Nicholl stated during her appearance on the British documentary Harry and Meghan: Two Troubled Years. "I think they went in knowing it was going to be very difficult for the Royal Family to have any sort of comeback."
Even if the pair did want to apologize for their claims, "they certainly weren't going to sit down and address every single point and accusation made" in their interviews, added Nicholl.
In the couple's televised sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, they revealed that the royal family ignored them when they voiced their concerns over their mental health.
The actress' struggles became so bad that she became suicidal, but still, they were allegedly offered no help.
They also claimed that the institution had "concerns" over the color of their 2-year-old son Archie's skin — just one of the many racism issues they faced.
After the CBS special aired, Harry continued to air out his brood's dirty laundry by appearing on actor Dax Shepard's podcast and in the AppleTV+ docuseries, The Me You Can't See.
In the latter, the Duke of Sussex explained that his mental health woes were the result of his "upbringing," a comment that didn't sit well with his father, Prince Charles.
Despite the heat Harry's receiving, he stated that leaving the royal family and starting fresh was the best decision for him, Meghan and their son.
"Making this move is really scary, like at every possible opportunity the forces that were working against us tried to make it impossible. Did I expect to find ourselves in this situation so quickly? No. I think we’ve done a really good job," he admitted. "I have no regrets, it’s incredibly sad, but I have no regrets at all because now I’m in a place where I feel like I should have been four years ago."
