Harry could be barred from coronation over claims Palace has lied, says expert

Prince Harry's claim that Buckingham Palace was "happy to lie to protect" Prince William could see the Duke of Sussex barred from King Charles' coronation, according to a royal expert.

Today (Monday, December 12) Netflix released a trailer for the second volume of Harry and Meghan Markle's docuseries titled Harry & Meghan.

The first three episodes were released last Thursday (December 8), with three more set to land on the streaming platform this Thursday (December 15).

The latest trailer contains a number of explosive moments, none more so than when Harry says: "They were happy to lie to protect my brother. They were never willing to tell the truth to protect us."

Although it is unclear who exactly "they" are, royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams said Harry is "presumably" referring to royal courtiers.

Fitzwilliams dubbed Harry's claim "outrageous" and is eagerly awaiting the release of the new episodes to see how, or if, he substantiates it.

Fitzwilliams told the Daily Star: "This trailer makes outrageous claims. We await seeing how they are backed up!

"What it means is what we anticipated, that the second series on Netflix will be tough watching for the Palace."

The royal expert explained that, if Harry's claims are not backed up, Buckingham Palace will likely have to do more than simply release a statement.

He continued: "A statement can't address these claims properly. The only option is no invitation to the coronation and no or a minimal amount of contact in future.

"There isn't much the Palace can actually do."

Another bombshell moment in the new trailer comes from Bot Sentinel boss Christopher Bouzy, whose firm tackles abuse and misinformation on social media.

He says: "They were actively recruiting people to disseminate disinformation."

Again, although it remains unclear who "they" are, it would appear Bouzy is discussing online trolls as he tweeted today: "Anti-Meghan trolls are not happy I am in the second official trailer, which is a them problem. Happy Monday!"

The Daily Star has approached Buckingham Palace for comment.
