Royal Family at ‘crossroads’ after Meghan and Harry drama and ‘could disappear’

The Royal Family is facing a crossroads following the drama surrounding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, it has been claimed.

A deep dive into The Firm and those who make up the Royal Family as we know it, Channel 4's programme The Windsors: Inside the Royal Dynasty, takes a closer look into Buckingham Palace.

The show claims the Queen and senior royals are facing a 'crossroads' and the future of the crown may take a different path following the departure of Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle, who stepped down as senior royals last year.

Biographer Penny Junor said: “The Queen belongs to a different era, the monarchy was much more secure when she came to the throne.

“It wasn’t challenged in the way that I think it is today.”

Ed Owens, Historian, added that the monarchy faces the need to modernise.

He said: “The Royal Family is caught in this bind from the need in one hand to modernise and embrace modernity and at the same time to maintain those traditional elements of the monarchy as well.”

Junior added: “The monarch is only there by the consent of the people. If the people really, really, really don’t want a monarchy, then our monarchy will disappear.”

Earlier this year, the Duchess of Sussex sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a CBS special and alleged a member of the Royal Family made a racist remark of Archie's skin colour before he was born.

When joined by the Duke, they added that the Palace didn't respond when the couple asked for help when Meghan was receiving abuse online and claimed they wouldn't issue statements to address them.

During Harry's mental health docuseries with the TV host, the prince further claimed that every time he sought help from his family he was met with "total neglect".

He also added that his life growing up was a 'total nightmare' and that his father passed on "genetic pain and suffering" to his sons, which Harry vowed not to do with his own children.

Harry and Meghan moved to the US in March 2020 and now live in California.

They have Archie, 2, together and welcomed a new baby daughter, Lilibet, last week.
