A differnt look at Prince Harry

Prince Harry has insisted in interviews as well as in his book Spare that his issues with the paparazzi began because of the way his mother Princess Diana died. and that he was afraid a similar fate was awaiting his wife Meghan Markle. Royal expert and author Valentine Low has published a book "Courtiers: Intrigue, Ambition, and the Power Players Behind the House of Windsor" where he details the depth of what he considers to be the paranoia of the Duke of Sussex.

Fox News is sharing excerpts that give insight into how Prince Harry was behaving while still a working royal but knowing the tragedy that befell Diana and the racism coming at Meghan Harry's "paranoia" was grounded in reality. It's already been explained so Low addressing it is nothing new.

Harry’s biggest gripe was with the Royal Rota, the system that gave royal correspondents access to palace events. Harry "saw it as a cartel," which gave the same tabloids "that ran inaccurate stories about him" unnecessary entry.

There is a method to Prince Harry's madness

Low is a correspondent and journalist who has worked for The Times since 2008.His viewpoint seems slanted against Prince Harry and the timing of his book release a few weeks after Spare will no doubt be questionable in the minds of some.

If he had a beef with the media, he’d want them to pursue it," Low claimed to Fox News Digital. "They would often say, ‘Harry, don’t pick this fight. This fight’s not worth having. You don’t have to pursue every slight that’s been done towards you.’ And if you didn’t pursue it with the kind of energy that he sought, he could question your loyalty. He wondered if you’d become one of them, one of the others from the other royal households who protected the institution … and not the individual."

Now that the public has read Prince Harry's memoir, and has a better understanding of why he was against the British press it may take some of the sting out of Valentine Low's accusations.
