He’s a good face of bad game all the time, but tension can also show in a professional prince.
Prince William, 40, and his wife, Princess Kate, 41, have made their first public appearance since the publication of Prince Harry’s memoirs (38). They showed that, at least outwardly, they remained true to the unofficial family motto “Never Complain, Never Explain”.
Exactly this motto Harry had questioned before publishing his autobiography and said it looks very different behind castle walls. It was one of the most harmless allegations ever made by the exiled prince.
On Thursday, two days after the release of Harry’s book, William and Kate visited a charity in Berkshire focused on helping young people with mental health issues. The couple listened, thanked the staff, and were sympathetic, sympathetic, and talkative – still seeming absent-minded at times.
For a brief moment, the heir to the British throne was speechless when a spunky reporter dared to ask the question millions of people have: “Have you read Harry’s book, Your Highness?”
Prince William did not answer the question with his mouth, but with his facial expressions. No comment, but you can say: although it serves to judge, it seems to boil. Kate also looked very thoughtful on the date, her smile seemed forced.
Prince Harry’s book was released on Tuesday. Many details have already been published. In it, Harry gives an unprecedented insight into life behind the palace walls.
He also does not skimp on criticizing his family. In addition to Prince William and Princess Kate, he is making serious allegations against King Charles’ wife Camilla.
And while Harry has found great success with his memoirs—according to the publisher, 1.4 million copies have been sold since “Spare” (German title: “Reserve”) alone came out of the English-language edition—he’s lost in two territories.
In the UK, Prince Harry’s popularity has been affected by the publication. In a survey conducted by British opinion research institute YouGov, only 24 per cent had a favorable opinion of the 38-year-old. He and Meghan are now no more popular than Prince Andrew (62), the royal’s brother who fell out of favor due to his involvement in a sex scandal.
And only 21 percent believe Harry published the autobiography to tell his life story. They think it’s all about the money. So the prince lost his credibility.
Even worse: the relationship with his brother William will definitely not be able to save Harry after this book.
