Harry and Meghan 'can't keep chats private' so will find it 'difficult to repair gap' with senior royals, says expert

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle "can't keep private conversations private" and will struggle to repair the gap between Harry, William and Charles as a result, an expert has claimed.

Royal biographer Angela Levin said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex desperately want publicity – but the "tell-tale tips" they dish out are "awful".

The proud parents welcomed their baby daughter Lilibet last week, with a number of sources close to them later telling the US media how they were getting on.

One source told People Magazine they introduced the new arrival – whose name is the Queen's nickname – to Her Majesty over video call, while another told US weekly Kate and Wills had sent over a gift for the new arrival.

But it's feared the openness of their pals could hinder the couple's chances of healing any royal rifts.

"They can't seem to have a private conversation staying a private conversation," Angela Levin told the Sun Online.

"It's all passed on to people, friends, or people close to them who then say all these things. 

"That's why it's going to be so difficult to repair the gap between Harry and William and Harry and Prince Charles. 

"It might not be wrong with some things but if you get into the habit of running to social media and saying something to them to get publicity – which they desperately want every time a small thing happens – it isn't right."

Ms Levin added that the Queen has said they are welcome back but "all their sort of tell tale tip nonsense is just awful".

It comes as Harry is expected to return to the UK next month for the unveiling of his late mother Princess Diana's statue.

It will be the first time since the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral he and brother Wills will be together and comes after he said their relationship was one of "space".

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said they were "delighted" with the arrival of Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor following her birth on Friday and dad Charles also offered his congrats.

But controversy has surrounded the baby's name – with a war of words breaking out around whether the Queen was informed about it or not.

A Palace source told the BBC the Queen was "never asked" about the name Lilibet – something the Sussexes were quick to refute.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's official spokesman said: "The Duke spoke with his family in advance of the announcement, in fact his grandmother was the first family member he called. 

"During that conversation, he shared their hope of naming their daughter Lilibet in her honor. 

"Had she not been supportive, they would not have used the name."

The Sun Online has approached representatives for Meghan and Harry and Buckingham Palace for comment.
