What should have been a joyous time for one uncle turned out to be a troubled day for him. Prince William. British royal family historian and biographer Robert Lacey revealed in a recent interview that the Duke of Cambridge was genuinely upset with the way the Buckingham Palace handled the delivery of Meghan Markle.
On the morning of May 6, 2019, the Duchess of Sussex and her husband, Prince Harry welcomed a healthy son. According to Lacey, Archie was born at 5:26 a.m., allowing the couple and Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, to return to Windsor undetected. The palace didn’t announce that Markle had gone into labor until Archie was born. And by then, Lacey alleged that she, Harry, and Ragland were heading home from the hospital.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wanted to protect their privacy and get home safely. William, on the other hand, was disappointed in the decision the couple made. Lacey is a consultant on the hit Netflix series “The Crown.” He recently released a new book titled “Battle of Brothers: William and Harry – The Inside Story of a Family in Tumult.” In his book he analyzes the relationship and alleged enmity between the two brothers.
The author, who has been writing about the British royal family for 40 years and previously worked in the royal archives, spoke with numerous palace connoisseurs for his latest release. “At the time, it was difficult for Meghan and Harry to hide the birth of their child because they were still on the payroll of the British monarchy,” Lacey explained.
The rules themselves
“We have a tradition here in Britain that royal babies should be seen and enjoyed by the public. But instead, Meghan and Harry chose to follow their own rules and have their baby in private. It is understood that William felt that they should have shown the baby to the public as other members of the royal family have done, “said the critic.
