Prince Harry ‘furious’ during Africa tour says Jobson

Harry and Meghan’s tumultuous fallout from the royal family was explored in the second half of the BBC’s two-part series ‘The Princes and the Press’, which aired last night. BBC media editor Amol Rajan spent time talking to royal experts and those close to the firm in an attempt to unravel the complicated narrative that has emerged over the past three years. Things took the biggest turn last year when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were planning to leave their senior royal duties for a new privacy in North America.

They first moved to Canada before moving south to Meghan’s home country, California, where they currently live.

Much has been said about the real reason for their departure.

Many have noticed that it was not a single event that pressured them, but rather a series of events.

Particular attention was paid to the media coverage of the bitter feud that arose between Harry and his brother Prince William during the documentary, and how this may have shaped the narrative.

Among the people Mr Rajan spoke to was Rhiannon Mills, Sky News’ royal correspondent.

She noted how Harry seemed separated from the media during his and Meghan’s 2019 tour of southern Africa.

She said, “Well, I certainly had no idea what exactly Prince Harry was saying to Tom Brady.

“But how he was generally on the trip, he was not like the Prince Harry we have known before.

“He did not really engage, he did not come and talk to us in the ways he would have done.”

Omid Scobie, co-author of the book ‘Findng Freedom’, added: “For Harry, seeing some media organizations represented on their tour of southern Africa be the same publications that in his eyes had spent most of the year harassing his pregnant wife , or write badly about her, I think that was where they really fought. “

Robert Jobson, royal editor of the Evening Standard, claimed that Harry was so “furious” that he could not look at any of the cameras during a talk.

He said: “I remember we went to the township on the outskirts of Johannesburg and he had a speech to give there.

“He was extremely furious in the whole media.

“He did not want to look at the cameras, he did not want to interact.

“Every word he said seemed to have an extra meaning.

“I think at the time he had had enough.”

Harry and Meghan traveled around southern Africa in late September and early October 2019.

On a handful of occasions, Harry left Meghan as he crossed into other countries to visit charities, including the Halo Trust in Angola, which his mother also visited in 1997.

At their first event in Cape Town, South Africa, Meghan was famously pictured being drawn into a dance circle and participating in the fun.

A few days later, their son, Archie, was greeted by Archbishop Desmond Tutu with a kiss on the head at the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation.

Meghan said Archie was an “old soul” during their chat with the pastor.

The family now lives in the closed community of Montecito, California, including five-month-old Lilibet.
