The Real Reason Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are  "Panicked," Royal Source Claims

It has to do with their Netflix show.

Ever since Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, it has been clear that she and her husband, Prince Harry, have no problem with airing the Royal family's troubling side. From making claims that members of the family are racist to claiming that Kate Middleton made Meghan cry on the day of her wedding, it seems that every interview exposes another shocking allegation. In fact, just over a month ago, Meghan spilled major royal tea during her interview with The New Yorker, even claiming that Prince Harry's relationship with his father was as damaged as her own with her estranged dad Thomas Markle. With the upcoming release of Prince Harry's memoir and also the couple's Netflix show, many suspect that more shall be revealed. However, an insider is claiming that after the death of Queen Elizabeth, the duo is "panicked" over the future.
