Relationship between the Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Harry gets complicated
According to the British media The Daily Mail, the 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh is “disappointed” and does not understand why his grandson decided to withdraw from royalty.
According to Ingrid Seward, one of the royal family biographers, Queen Elizabeth II’s husband “is going through a moment of mourning.”
“Felipe is deeply hurt that the younger members of the family don’t seem to share his values. He has fought a lot. He is disappointed in the abandonment of duty by his grandson, who gave up his homeland to live a celebrity life in North America, “said Seward.
At the beginning of the year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex revolutionized the monarchy by confirming their intentions to abandon their positions as front-line members of the British crown.
They currently live in the United States with their son Archie and among their projects is the recent millionaire contract with the streaming company Netflix with which they will make content through their own production company.
