Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could doom the future of the Royal Family, according to royal biographer Duncan Larcombe. Speaking to True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat, Mr Larcombe accused the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of carrying out “the biggest royal sellout in the history of the family”. He suggested Prince William’s reign as future King will be wrecked after his brother’s “sellout deals”.
Mr Larcombe claimed Harry and Meghan could become a billion-dollar brand through their business deals after securing huge agreements with Netflix and Spotify.
He added this same behaviour could prove catastrophic for the future of the Royal Family.
The royal biographer explained: “A year ago Harry and Meghan were saying they want privacy and to bring their child up in peace – Codswallop!
“We now know what it is. The evidence is there. It was the biggest royal sellout in the history of the family.”

He continued: “What Harry and Meghan have done over the past 12 months is sow seeds which will spell potential catastrophe to the Royal Family.
“When 50 million people are watching Harry’s chat about organic yoghurt or whatever it is that he wants to promote, and 5,000 people are watching his brother – Prince William, the future King – do a royal engagement, opening a supermarket in Hemel Hempstead or whatever – that is when it becomes a problem.”
Later in the programme, Mr Larcombe said Harry and Meghan’s deals are “about money, not charity” before criticising their use of Archie in their first Spotify podcast episode.
He said: “Because there is money involved, it isn’t a charitable thing. What a surprise that more family silver is out for sale – let’s use Archie as clickbait.
ITV journalist and friend of Prince Harry, Tom Bradby, opened up about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s departure from the Royal Family in an interview set to air in this Sunday’s episode of Love Your Weekend With Alan Titchmarsh.
Mr Bradby said the couple, who are living in America after stepping back as senior working royals, are “content” and “quite excited” by the things they are doing, but added that Harry is “heartbroken” after Megxit.
Meghan and Harry plunged the Royal Family into a period of crisis when they revealed their intention to step back as senior royals just over a year ago.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex officially departed in March after a final round of engagements across the UK before settling down in California.
