Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are causing trouble for the royal family again. And by “causing trouble” we actually mean they’re not doing anything untoward or wrong but the palace is freaking out anyway.
Rumors that the Sussexes are planning another sit-down with Oprah following last year’s bombshell interview began swirling late last month when they were photographed leaving the media mogul’s home in California.

While there could be any number of reasons why Harry and Meghan were hanging out with Oprah, the palace is now reportedly in “panic mode” that another explosive TV special could be in the works.
Royal expert Daniela Elser notes that the Sussexes are “holding some pretty powerful cards,” especially with Harry’s new memoir coming out soon and the palace’s refusal to release its report about those dubious allegations of bullying made against Meghan. Harry also just won a libel suit against the publisher of The Mail for an incorrect story it ran about him.
The problem is that the royal family has left the Sussexes in a position where they really have nothing left to lose. They no longer receive any funding from Charles’ Duchy of Cornwall, they no longer get a freebie and instead pay rent on their Windsor home Frogmore Cottage, and they have had all of their official patronages and military roles stripped away.
… The question for Harry and Meghan becomes, why not indulge in Oprah mark two? Why not tell the world how sad and hurt they were to be shunned by his family? How painful it was to be relegated to second-row, second-tier status during the Jubilee? Why not try and use an embarrassing situation to generate some sympathy for them?
Here’s what folx on Twitter are saying…
The royal family expect loyalty from the Sussexes yet they’ve refused to show it in return. They were leaking and lying about Sussexes before they left and after they left (which prompted the Oprah interview). But yeah Harry and Meghan should be the ones begging & apologizing??

Clearly the bully claims against Meghan Markle are false because the Royal Family would do NOTHING to protect her. The bullying inquiry most likely incriminates the Royal Family which is why it’s being buried ? pic.twitter.com/d3pZoCMuDx

Harry is fighting for his late mother, for himself, for Meghan and for their children.

The Sussex Squad has held lying, abusive, & opportunistic people responsible for what they’ve said about Prince Harry & Meghan Markle. The people who hate them, are angry that they can’t easily abuse them for profit without being exposed. #SussexSquad
