Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may have hijacked peace talks with the monarchy by relating their private chats to CBS’ Gayle King, a move that has been described by a royal biographer as a “shocking breach of trust,” according to a report.
Gayle King on Tuesday openly discussed her weekend call with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, saying they were still upset and frustrated and that Harry’s chats with his dad and brother were not productive.
Meanwhile, royal sources told the Mirror that the private conversations being openly discussed and used against them would “cause alarm.”
“This type of behaviour could have huge implications for trust between the camps moving forward,” the source said.
Royal biographer Penny Junor also told the outlet that Gayle’s unexpected revelations can only be expected to make other royals more guarded in their approaches to mending the royal rift.
“It’s a shocking breach of trust,” Junor said of the Sussexes relating their private chats to a TV journalist saying, “The family will worry that anything they say to Harry will end up on American television.”
Buckingham Palace sources insisted to the outlet that the monarchy would not play tit-for-tat and also reveal negative news about the attempts at reconciliation.
“None of the households, the Queen, Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be giving a running commentary on private conversations,” a palace source told the Mirror.
