What has been made abundantly clear throughout February and March is that Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace are all being run by amateurs. Every palace’s communications team is full of clowns. Lazy clowns. They can’t even agree on one nasty narrative to use against the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – first it was Prince Philip Is So Sick You Guys, then it was But Wait Meghan Is A Bully, then it was We’re Very Much Not Racist But We Are Engorged With Rage. The current palace clownshow cycle is The Palace Is Terribly Mad About All These Sussex Leaks. As you can imagine, when Gayle King delivered the piping hot tea on Tuesday’s episode of CBS This Morning, palace a–holes puckered in unison. What’s funny is that both William AND Charles had already leaked to friendly media outlets that they had been in touch with Harry. So Gayle just confirmed that straight from Harry and Meghan, and added some additional flavor: Harry is mad that his family continues to pretend that Meghan doesn’t exist, and that his conversations with his father and brother were “not productive.” Well, as you might imagine, someone is incandescent with mistrust!!
Though Prince Harry and Prince William are indeed back in touch, it doesn’t seem like they’re any closer to a truce. Confirming reports that the brothers have now spoken since the Oprah interview, Gayle King said on CBS This Morning that the conversations between the brothers were “not productive.” She added that Meghan and Harry are eager for the “royals to intervene and tell the press to stop with the unfair, inaccurate, false stories that definitely have a racial slant,” as the fall-out from their Oprah interview enters its second week. Sources close to the Sussexes say they are frustrated by unnamed sources briefing against them in the press, and that Meghan continues to be criticized in the British media. According to King, Meghan has documents to back up everything she said in the interview.
While the couple’s interview has been positively received for the most part in the U.S., there has been a more mixed response in the U.K., where media outlets have been eager to fact-check their claims. Over the weekend sources told the Sunday Times that, contrary to Harry’s claim that Prince Charles had cut them off financially last year, “It was a surprise to hear he’d been cut off, given the bank statements. The prince continued to provide Harry and Meghan with financial support after their move to America while they found their feet.”
Sources also told the Times that they were “dismayed” at the couple’s allegations that they received no help from the institution when Meghan was struggling with her mental health because the couple had the full support of a hand-picked team of aides.
The continued coverage of the interview has led to further tensions between the Sussexes and the royals. One source close to William told Vanity Fair, “There’s a lack of trust on both sides which makes moving forward very hard. William is now worried that anything he says to his brother will be plastered over American TV.”
Buckingham Palace has no plans to comment beyond the statement issued last week by the Queen, but there is concern within the family that the story is becoming a soap opera, even as Prince Philip heads home from the hospital after a monthlong stay. “The family is focused on the Duke of Edinburgh and as far as they are concerned his health is paramount,” a family friend told Vanity Fair. “It seems the Sussexes seem to want to keep fueling this story at a time when the royals are trying to protect Prince Philip from the headlines. It’s a very strange way to go about trying to heal a family rift.”
Vanity Fair understands that Harry has been in touch with the Queen since the interview aired and that they are continuing to speak regularly about Prince Philip’s health.

I’m starting to understand more and more that the Queen says one thing to Harry and Meghan, then her courtiers refuse to follow her wishes, and then Clarence House is pushing Chuck’s agenda and now Kensington Palace is trying to run their own competing operation. As I said, an utter clownshow with sweaty, incompetant clowns, drenched in sweat, their makeup running down their faces, their clown wigs askew, the clown pants down around their ankles. KP, CH and BP can’t even agree on one singular way to bash Harry & Meghan!! Is it all about Poor Philip, is it about William’s Mistrust or is it about Chuck’s Receipts? PICK A TALKING POINT.
As for William’s trust issues… I can’t. It’s too stupid. William went around for weeks with his pathetic little “Meghan is a bully!” campaign (which blew up in his face), then he continued to brief the press against the Sussexes post-interview, and now HE is briefing an American outlet (Vanity Fair) in reaction to the Gayle King tea. He is so bad at this. You guys, Poor Willileaks has trust issues!
