Prince Harry is ‘bigger problem for the monarchy’ than Andrew, says royal author

Prince Harry is a "bigger problem" for the Royal Family than Prince Andrew, according to a royal author.

The Diana Chronicles andThe Palace Papers writer Tina Brown made the comments whilst speaking onBloomberg’s In The City podcast.

Harry and Meghan Markle created shockwaves for the monarchy when they sensationally stepped down as working members of the Royal Family at the start of 2020.

Further issues came in March 2021 following the release of their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

One of the major revelations was Meghan claiming that there were "concerns and conversations about how dark his (Archie's) skin might be when he was born".

Brown explained: "Andrew issue has been ring-fenced, making Harry a bigger problem for the monarchy."

In February this year, Andrew agreed a settlement with Virginia Giuffre – thought to be around £12million – after she accused him of sexually abusing her when she was 17.

The settlement was not an admission of guilt and Andrew always denied the allegations.

There had been fury among Royal Fans after it was reported he would attend the Garter Day ceremony earlier this month, although in the end he didn't.

Brown went on to say that, although the monarchy "isn't going anywhere", a "national identity crisis" is brewing in Britain given the current cost-of-living crisis and the prospect of the Queen's eventual passing.

"I think what Britain sees is such turbulence and such change, that the monarchy seems more reassuring than ever," she said.

"But of course that monarchy is at a frail point – the question of 'how they will feel British?' after the Queen dies is a big one."

Brown also said that Prince Charles will be a transitional monarch who will "get things in shape for William".

This will be particularly important given that Prince William and Kate Middleton will need to balance their "more European, less traditional" style with the customs of a 1000-year-old institution.
