We present His Royal Highness, “Prince Gooseberry.”
Prince Harry felt like a third round – and even a “gooseberry” – when, according to a royal expert, he held official meetings alongside Prince William and Kate Middleton.
“Harry felt very much like a spare wheel,” said Katie Nicholl.
The book says Harry was unhappy for a while, Nicholl said.
“One of the themes that recurs in Finding Freedom is that Harry felt like a spare wheel,” Nicholl told ET.
“While the media loved this idea of the royal trio (Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry), he felt very much like a spare wheel for Harry.
“At some point, I even heard him complain that he felt like a gooseberry, the third one that day.”; It never quite fit. “
Meghan Markle changed all that, Nicholl said, quoting his resume again.
“I think while Kate and William set out to make sure Harry felt part of this team, this trio, Harry always wanted to be his own person,” she told the store.
“I think Meghan was a very catalyst for giving him the confidence to break free from William and Kate and to break free from the dynamics of the trio, which was sometimes cozy and comfortable, but it wasn’t really what he really wanted. ” “
While Meghan was blamed as a catalyst for a couple who resigned from their role as royal kings and descended to Los Angeles, “Harry was a very driving force” behind “Megxit,” she added.
“She gave him new confidence, but I think it’s true that Prince Harry wanted for a long time.”
