Angela Levin, Prince Harry’s biographer, opens up about the Sussexes’ performance at the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. She says Harry is very upset and expects an apology.
Prince Harry’s biographer spent a year with him, resulting in the book Conversations with a Prince. Levin has known Harry well over the years, she says, which is why she told Britain’s The Sun newspaper that Prince Harry was upset at the lack of attention he received at the Queen’s 70th jubilee celebrations.
He also looked dejected in photos as he boarded a private jet during the celebrations on Sunday and jetted back to California with his family. This opinion is also confirmed by Angela Levin, who has been casting a negative light on every step taken by the ducal couple for several years. The biographer has been commenting negatively on Prince Harry and his wife Duchess Meghan for some time, especially on Twitter.
Prince Harry and his wife, Duchess Meghan, only officially attended the memorial service at St. Paul’s Cathedral during the four-day jubilee, otherwise the two were nowhere to be seen. They celebrated their daughter Lilibet’s first birthday in a small group at Frogmore Cottage. Prince William and his family are said to have been invited to this, but he was unable to attend due to an event in Wales. Levin claims that Harry forgot to check his brother’s schedule and that his absence made him “absolutely angry”.
Netflix is said to be mad at the Sussexes
The Sussexes have also met with Prince Charles and Camilla behind closed doors. A first meeting between the Queen and her namesake and great-granddaughter Lilibet is confirmed, but official photos of the event have been denied by Elizabeth II. That should also cause problems for the Sussexes, according to Levin, because they are currently shooting a documentary on behalf of Netflix. The author says Netflix is unhappy with the Sussexes after Her Majesty turned down a chance to be photographed with her great-granddaughter. “That picture would have been very valuable. Netflix wanted them to get photos with high-level royals, and Netflix bosses aren’t very happy with them,” Levin said. “So they were supposed to go to church at St. Paul’s so they could be seen in public for their Netflix series, but they were wondering about their seats.”
Angela Levin says she saw the anger on Prince Harry’s face
Although Prince Harry and Meghan chatted with his cousin Zara Tindall outside St. Paul’s Cathedral, Levin suspects Harry was in a bad mood in the chapel. She says: “What really struck me that day was Harry’s anger – you can see his emotions on his face and he looked absolutely furious.”
The biographer’s conclusion about the Sussexes’ stay in Britain is sobering: “I think Prince Harry was very upset that he was largely ignored. He feels the royal family owes him an apology.” Levin also says Harry should have visited the UK at a ‘calmer time’ to make peace with his brother.
