AIDES of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have warned the couple to ‘discuss issues behind closed doors’ after recent TV appearances.
An unnamed source close to the royals have told US media outlet CNN that the official “telling off” came after the pair broke their silence on the pressures of being the public eye.
However a royal source close to the couple has condemned the Palace for not helping the young couple to “harness their potential” in the public eye.
The comments come after Harry and Meghan’s appearance on the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.
During the show, the Duke and Duchess opened up about their struggles with fame, a move that was not universally appreciated by members of the royal family.
Royal protocol states that personal matters should not be discussed in the public eye, and some critics have said that the appearance on TV has “modernised” the royal family.
Sources have also played down Harry’s comments on his brother William.
During the show he explained that he didn’t see much of his brother anymore as they were so busy. He also explained that “as brothers, you have good days, you have bad days.”
Some took this to indicate that there was a rift between the royal brothers and that William was furious over the comments, but Palace officials were quick to play this down.
“Anybody who watched it would feel compassion and concern, Harry knows his brother is there for him. They have been on different paths for many months.” explained the Royal aide.
