On this week’s encore episode of “Pop Life” we meet Royal Watcher Robert Lacey, author of “Battle of Brothers: William, Harry and the Inside Story of a Family in Tumult.” We talk scandal, the rift between the brothers and whether the twio princes will ever reconcile.
“I do not think one can expect the two brothers to come back together and work inside the royal family,” he says. “I think Harry’s destiny for the foreseeable future is in North America. I think he likes the freedom of expression that he’s got there. But let’s not forget, covid has played a very sad role in this. Even when Harry and Meghan left Britain in March this year, they were planning to come back in the summer to spend time at their cottage in Windsor. The first thing they did when they secured their Netflix contract was to pay off all the debts on that cottage. So that is clearly part of their future lifestyle with Archie and any other children who may be on the way. But I think for the foreseeable future, we’re going to see William doing the work for that generation of the royal family. And Harry and Meghan will be creating their own new reality in California.”
Then, the Pop Life Panel, Lacey, CTV NewsChannel anchor Beverly Thomson and Chef John Higgins, who has cooked for the Queen at Buckingham Palace and on the Royal Yacht Britannia. They discuss the obsession with Royals and what the future holds for the Royal Family.
