The King should 'carry on in a dignified manner' amid public attacks from Sussexes

King Charles must not stoop down to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's "low blow strategy", a royal commentator has claimed.

Since stepping down as working royals, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have launched multiple attacks on the Royal Family - including the monarch.

Dr Ed Owens, a royal historian who wrote After Elizabeth: Can the Monarchy Save Itself?, spoke exclusively to GB News to explain the best strategy the royals should take while the Sussexes remain in the limelight.

He said: “All they can do is carry on in a dignified manner as possible.

“If the Royal Family wants to come to light with any new story, this might prove that Harry and Meghan's complaints about the Royal Family were true.

“There was a lot of discussion in both the Netflix series that Harry Meghan made, but also in the book Spare around the record press briefings by the Palace against other members of the family.

“Harry said that there were members of the family that were essentially briefing against him.

“Now, what the remaining members of the House of Windsor don't want to do is to have those stories proven true by behaving in some way where they're found out.

“So they've got to maintain as dignified a public image as they possibly can. They've got to carry on with the work of monarchy.”

Owens discussed the “low blows” issued by the prince and his wife towards other members of the Royal Family.

He commented: “Harry and Meghan have engaged in several kinds of low blows.

“The Royal Family must not deign to the low blow strategy adopted by Harry and Meghan.

“Harry and Megan have hung out all sorts of their dirty linen in public.

“The Royal Family have to maintain a dignified presence as much as possible in all these matters.

“Responding to Harry and Meghan is only going to increase the sensationalism around the stories.

“They've got to maintain a distance at a dignified silence, however difficult that might be.”
