While Prince Harry stood by his wife, Meghan Markle, and supported her in suing a few media publications over an alleged leak of a “private” letter she previously wrote her dad, Thomas Markle, Sr., he may have lost the support of the royal family members in this process.

Meghan and Harry are suing Daily Mail, The Sun and The Daily Mirror for publishing a private letter that Meghan previously sent to her father. However, according to latest reports, the royal family is not only upset but also embarrassed about Harry and Meghan taking this major step.

In the middle of the ongoing feud between Harry, Meghan and the media, a royal reporter alleges that no one from the royal family is ready to support the couple in this matter. “Nobody in the Royal Family or the Royal Household is supporting Harry and Meghan at the moment,” said Daily Express royal correspondent Richard Palmer in a tweet.

“Even the couple’s aides seem embarrassed by their actions. William, who dropped his brother like a ton of hot bricks earlier this year, and Charles have distanced themselves,” he tweeted further.

“Obviously, if that changes it will be a story but at the moment the Sussexes appear out on a limb,” Palmer went on to say. “Whatever the merits of their various legal actions, they didn’t inform their family that Harry was going to release that inflammatory statement.”

While the royals have refrained from commenting on the matter by staying mum all this while, there are many presumptions being made already. It is reported that Harry was asked to wait to release the letter where he bashed the media for being so critical of his wife all the time.

However, he went against their will and released the letter anyway. That didn’t go down well with the members of the royal family, and so he allegedly left them with no choice but to be unsupportive of Harry and Meghan.

Cosmopolitan reported that Harry’s advisors had “warned that it would inevitably push the tour itself off the news agenda” and thought that his timing was “unfortunate.” Also, neither of their secretaries had any input in the letter he read out to the media a couple of weeks back, which described how he didn’t want Meghan to be dehumanized like his mother, Princess Diana.
