‘Harry and Meghan ‘won’t get over’ Barack Obama’s party snub, expert claims
August 30, 2021
A royal commentator has claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘won’t get over’ reportedly being snubbed by Barack Obama.
The former US president celebrated his 60th birthday earlier this month with a lavish party in the garden of his mansion in Martha’s Vineyard.
Despite a star-studded guest-list, which included Beyonce and George Clooney, Harry and Meghan did not attend the event.
This is in spite of the fact that the couple have supposedly become close with the Obamas over the years.
Now, during his TalkRADIO programme, host Mike Graham suggested that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be feeling hurt by their omission from the invite list.
He claimed: “But of course we know that they don’t really have any friends, and the only friends they do have – or who they count as friends – are all the people that got invited to Barack Obama’s 60th birthday party, but they didn’t.”
Royal biographer Angela Levin agreed. She suggested, “no that’s right, I’m sure they haven’t got over that, and won’t for many years.”
Relations have reportedly been tense between the couple and the rest of the Royal Family since they stepped down from royal duties and moved to the US last year.
An explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, broadcast in March, saw the pair level a number of accusations against ‘The Firm’.
During the interview, it was claimed that an unnamed member of the Royals had made remarks about the skin colour of Archie, the couple’s eldest child.
It is also expected that the christening of Lillibet will take place soon, with speculation whether Harry and Meghan will make the trip over to the UK for the ceremony to take place in the presence of the Queen.
The supposed tensions between Harry and Meghan and the rest of the Royal Family in Buckingham Palace have reportedly been raised by fears over Prince Harry’s memoir announcement.
The Prince's book is set to be released in late 2022.
Upon its announcement, he said it will be a “first-hand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”
