When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spoke to Oprah in a bombshell interview that aired last month, there was a lot for us to unpack. Especially when it came to the Duke of Sussex’s statement that the royal family wanted the Duchess of Sussex to “carry on acting.”
In his claim, Harry seemed to assume that the suggestion was meant less like a way for Markle to keep her career and more like a way to have her keep her distance from the family. “That was right at the beginning when she wasn't going to get security when members of my family were suggesting that she carries on acting because there's not enough money to pay for her, and all this sort of stuff,” the 35-year-old revealed.
Lucky for us, PureWow’s own Royally Obsessed podcast recently shared an episode featuring an interview with Princess Diana’s royal biographer, Andrew Morton, who revealed his take on the matter.
“They were given a degree of latitude,” Morton told podcast hosts, Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito. “They were told ‘here are your first-class tickets, pick a country you want to go to, we're going to make you youth ambassadors for the Commonwealth.'”
