Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could have flourished in King Charles III's new "Carolean Era," but reportedly opted for monetized tell-alls and the fleeting unpredictability of Hollywood instead.

"The whole kind of royal machine, if you like, is a team effort, and I just think it's very sad because Harry and Meghan had such potential," author Robert Hardman told an outlet.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex left the royal family four years ago.

"Harry writes in his book Spare how no one will return his calls and he can't get through to anyone, and it's just all about me, me, me," Hardman added. "And now, when we do tend to hear from them on a royal matter, it's just to say how miserable they were being royal."

The author of Charles III: New King. New Court. The Inside Story pointed out how there is no question that Harry and Meghan will never be allowed to work for the Crown again. "I can't envisage a situation where they're back as part of the royal working unit, but I can certainly see it becoming a kind of normal thing for them to keep coming back."

Even though the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's often acrimonious split with the monarchy led to royal and Sussex supporter divisions, some royal analysts, such as Hardman, feel that there is a bittersweetness to the parting. "It's a family at the end of the day, and they did have so much to give. I mean, when you look back on that sunny day in May 2018 and that sense of promise, all they were going to be doing for the Commonwealth."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle felt 'competitive' with Prince William and Kate, Princess of Wales.

Hardman continued: "That's very much what the King had in mind for the future, that there would be this sort of twin track — you'd have William and Catherine, and you'd also have Harry and Meghan. Fundamentally, I think everyone's so sad; I think they’re beyond being angry. Everyone would like to see some sort of rapprochement."

King Charles III and the Princess of Wales both had medical procedures within one week of one another in January 2024.

With the Princess of Wales being out of commission until possibly April, Hardman thinks "it's a reminder that we do have a slimmed down royal family now, but they will adapt, they'll make it work, and it is a quiet royal time of year. I think by the spring things will be back on track."

The traditional schedule of the British monarchy is slow and uneventful during the first and parts of the second quarters of each year. Although Charles III has changed small details since his accession to the throne in the third quarter of 2022, there are scant royal events from January to April. Easter brings with it the Royal Maundy service as well as engagements at Windsor Castle, which is where the court moves to during Easter Week.
