Prince Harry ‘obsessed’ with keeping Archie’s birth secret: this book

Prince Harry was reportedly kidnapped for withholding details about the birth of Archie’s son.

A source described Harry as “almost morbidly obsessed” with keeping Archie’s birth as private as possible, royal expert Katie Nicole in her new book ‘The New Royals: Queen Elizabeth’s Legacy and the Future of the Crown’ wrote.

This quest for secrecy is said to be in breach of an “unwritten contract between the royal family and society” who are eager and want to hear all the details about the new royal baby as soon as Meghan Markle is born.

Royal Daily Mail editor Rebecca English added: “Behind the scenes, things were so tense that more than one officer – known from my own experience – shed tears of frustration and despair. .”

Usually, after a royal birth, fathers, mothers and newborn babies pose on the steps of the hospital, surrounded by kind people and photographers, and answer a few questions before leaving.

But, according to Nicole, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex want to change that.

When Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born on May 6, 2019, the couple managed to trick the media when he actually arrived.

“Harry has always liked to be smarter than the media,” Nicole wrote. “He and Meghan are delighted to have safely transported their son to a private hospital in Portland, London, even before the Palace Press Office confirmed the Duchess was in labour.”

Two days later, the couple participated in a brief photo opportunity with a reporter’s question.

“But it all felt scene-driven, with pre-approved questions, a reporter and a cameraman,” Nicole continued. “He shows the growing gap between Harry’s public expectations and what he feels he is obligated to give.”

The alum “suit” looked tired and uncomfortable at the time. Likewise, Prince William’s wife Kate Middleton admitted she had difficulty getting post-natal photos, and Nicole wrote that the Princess of Wales “agreed, having no legal interest because she would one day be the queen and mother of the king. listed”.

In addition, Markle, 41, and Harry, 38, also held private christenings and declined to name Archie’s godparents.

However, Nicole noted that while the Sussexes may have “played a trump card in their pursuit of privacy and ripped another page from the royal notebook”, they also undermined the Crown’s relationship with “media, broadcasters And public relations, they feel cheated by that experience – whether that’s a fair expectation or not.”
