"The one saving grace of this whole situation is that they live 5,000 miles away. The idea of them coming back here will go down like a bucket of warm sick," the future king's pal revealed.
This insight comes after the Duke of Sussex shared in a statement with London's High Court on Thursday, December 7, that the Sussex family was "forced" to leave the monarchy in 2020. "It was with great sadness for both of us that my wife and I felt forced to step back from this role and leave the country in 2020," the fiery-haired prince stated. The new revelation was part of the royal rebel's ongoing claim in court that he and his family should have the right to police protection while in Britain.
In January 2020, when "Megxit" was fully underway, Harry's current statement was contradicted by his wording nearly four years ago.
He shared then: "The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven’t always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option. Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible."
Harry's new twist on old statements is being routinely called out by both analysts and royal insiders. "The idea that they had 'no choice' but to quit is a classic example of their 'this is my truth' concept. It’s just a figure of speech. It is not actually true. Of course, they could have carried on if they had wanted to. They were not forced out," a former palace courtier spilled.
Others cannot quite get over how the fifth in line to the throne's feelings have apparently changed for a country he once said made both him and Meghan "in fear of our lives." Harry also accused the British people of not being "there for me" in his memoir, Spare, which caused a widespread rebuttal from numerous Britons.
"The U.K. is my home. The U.K. is central to the heritage of my children and a place [where] I want them to feel at home as much as where they live at the moment in the U.S. That cannot happen if it’s not possible to keep them safe when they are on U.K. soil," Harry concluded in his written address to the High Court.
