Fears Harry and Meghan will revert to ‘mud-slinging’ and name ‘royal racist’
The Royal Family fears that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may turn to “mud-slinging” and name the member who they claim made racist remarks if their media careers fail, an insider has suggested.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are in the process of producing their next Netflix property, a romance film based on a book to which their firm Archewell Productions has the rights.
The production has been billed as a chance for the couple to reignite their media careers following a rocky year, and insiders believe the Firm is counting on it working.
A source told the Daily Telegraph that the royals are afraid that without a project to distract them, they may train their sights on their relatives across the Atlantic.
The fears have centred on another autobiography, this time penned by the Duchess of Sussex.

The Prince and Duchess’ latest project is centred on Meet Me at the Lake, a novel by Carley Fortune published earlier this year that loosely resembles the couple’s story.
Netflix acquired the rights held by their production firm for £3million as part of their £80million deal, and the royals are reportedly keen for the next instalment in their streaming saga to work out.
A Palace insider told the Telegraph that, should “if the film flops” the couple will “no doubt revert to mud-slinging”.
They especially fear the possibility of an autobiography by Meghan Markle that might unveil the identity of an infamous but anonymous figure within the royal ranks.

The insider added: “Everyone’s worried about the prospect of Meghan writing her autobiography and naming the ‘royal racist’.”
The “royal racist” first emerged during the Duke and Duchess’ interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021.
They told the talkshow legend that a member of the firm raised “concerns” about “how dark” their son Archie’s skin colour might be before they were married.

Meghan alleged there were “several conversations” about the subject with Prince Harry.
The Royal Family denied the accusations in a statement issued just two days following the broadcast on March 7 in which the Palace said the Duke and Duchess are “much-loved family members”.
The statement read: “The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.”
