The decision by Harry and Meghan to walk away from the Royal Family will “avoid catastrophe”, a royal commentator has said.

Royal author Penny Junor said the split was “good news” for the couple.


Ms Junor told the Press Association:

“I think it is the best possible outcome, and an outcome which will actually avoid catastrophe.

“The country was so divided about this and so angry and so upset, so I think it was all a big mess and it was getting nastier by the day.”

Ms Junor added that it would have been “tragic” if the pair had to give up their patronages, particularly if Harry was made to leave the Invictus Games after founding it.

She said: “They’re hanging onto their patronages which I think is absolutely terrific because they both care passionately about making the world a better place.

“There are no blurred lines.

“They are starting afresh and they are going with the Queen’s blessing, I think it is the best of all worlds.”
