Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have “inherited” an American attitude since their relocation to the US, a royal commentator has claimed.
Harry and Meghan stepped back from their royal working lives in early 2020, and have since established their new family home with son Archie in Montecito, California in the US.
The couple has been busy with their new ventures, signing deals with Spotify and Netflix, as well as raising a family after Meghan gave birth to youngest daughter Lilibet in June last year.
The pair have not visited the UK together publicly since abdicating their royal responsibilities, and Harry is currently battling a decision to prevent him from paying for security in order that he can safely bring his family to see their royal family.
But, speaking to Mark Dolan on GB News, royal commentator Kinsey Schofield has suggested that the Sussexes’ decisions have been influenced by their new surroundings.
“I really feel like Meghan and Harry have inherited this American attitude, [it’s] ‘our way or the highway’,” she said.
“Prince Harry, the people that are mentoring him and working with him throughout some of these issues, they are Americans and they don’t understand the proper way to communicate, and they don’t understand that element of respect.
“It seems like he has inherited the American attitude of, ‘it’s our way or the highway’, and I do feel like he probably did not mean it to come off that way.”
Kinsey, who is an American, acknowledged Harry’s time serving in the armed forces and suggested that this suggests the prince does have a “deep love” for his home country.
But, the royal commentator questioned Harry’s motives were he not to attend a memorial service for his late grandfather Prince Philip this Spring.
The Duke of Sussex has challenged a ruling that he is not allowed to pay the Metropolitan Police for security when he visits the UK and has said his family would be at risk were they to return.
Through his lawyers, the prince said that a lack of police protection carries “too great a personal risk”, and noted that Harry had been the subject of “well-documented neo-Nazi and extremist threats.”
But Kinsey remained unconvinced, arguing: “That specific instance doesn’t work in this scenario, because that is exactly the kind of event where Harry would have the security he wants.
“So the arguments that he’s putting up don’t exactly make sense as to what he’s saying.”
