The Duchess is 'obsessed with the future', according to Schofield

A royal commentator has claimed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's children, Archie and Lilibet, are their 'way back into the royal family.'

When asked whether The Duke and Duchess of Sussex might try and 'reconnect with the royal family this year,' Kinsey Schofield said: "I feel that it is more significant to Harry than it is to Meghan.

"Meghan is obsessed with the future. She's obsessed with how to secure a livelihood for herself and her family. She does not feel as if the Royal Family are going to give the olive branch.

"For instance, writing the letter to King Charles that we found out about in Omid Scobie's book. She doesn't think that they are going to give her what she needs so her focus is on the future.

The US reporter added: "I do believe that it is Prince Harry that is wanting to mend fences because there are very few people in the world that understand what he is going through and now they are no longer in his life.

GB News host Patrick Christys then asked: "Surely they can use the grandkids as a way back in or Harry at least can?"


He added that Charles is very "affectionate" with his grandchildren in the UK and it is a "shame" for the others to miss out on that.

He said: "If Harry did want a way back in he could use the excuse that despite his personal beef with King Charles, he wants his children to have a relationship with their grandfather, it would be the perfect way back wouldn't it?"

Schofield said: "Well don't forget according to reports when Prince Harry received the phone call that he was being evicted from Frogmore Cottage, he said to his father 'don't you want to see your grandkids anymore?'

"So you are exactly right if there is a way in, Harry is already thinking about it."

Earlier in the interview, Schofield spoke about how this is a 'make or break year' for Harry and Meghan and said they need to 'put their money where their mouth is.'

She said: "I know when they struggle professionally, I hear through other people, that it affects them at home. I would never judge them on that because who doesn't work that way?

"When you are struggling professionally sometimes you bring that home with you. A US Weekly article that came out said that Harry and Megan were dodging offers left and right.

"And this was really their time to "rebrand" how many times have we heard that word in the last two years?

"I think that they have to figure out what their core values are and that it has to be reflected in the activities that they do, for people to have any sort of interest in them or any sort of faith in them.

She added: "We have not seen the life of service. What does Archewell stand for? What do you hope to accomplish with that? What is your mission statement? Not only as a couple but as a foundation?

Patrick said: "It's a fundamental lack of authenticity and people see straight through that and there's nothing that they can do unless they start to put their money quite literally where their mouth is and do some real genuine stuff that isn't all red carpets.
