In relation to Prince Harry’s soon-to-be-published tell-all memoir, Meghan Markle has been described as a “good cop” to his “bad cop,” according to a royal expert.
There is still no word on when the Duke’s memoirs will be published, nearly a year after he revealed that he is writing them.
Members of the Royal Family have been worried for a while about what secrets might be revealed in the book, and with the schism between the Sussexes and the Cambridges widening, and Harry and Meghan feeling snubbed during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, there are new concerns about what will be revealed in the Penguin Random House tome.
Senior members of the ‘Firm’ who have been troubled by the Sussexes since they were downgraded to ‘non-working royals’ and relocated to the United States will be relieved to learn of the delayed release.
Last year, royal commentator Richard Eden compared Harry to Megan’s “good cop,” describing him as the “bad cop” to Megan’s “good cop.”
To Meghan Markle’s ‘good cop,’ Prince Harry has been referred to as a ‘bad cop.’
That, he said, was in sharp contrast to Meghan’s upbeat news.
“I think we’re getting a bit of a good cop, bad cop thing going on with Meghan and Harry,” he said at the time.
“We were on this show last week talking about the big Sussex announcement, which was a Meghan TV project for Netflix, and it was all very positive about her as a feminist role model,” she explained.
“And then there’s Harry, who’ll be spilling the beans with his tell-all memoirs the following week.”
“It appears that Harry is falling into the narrative that he is the one making the claims, making the allegations, and Meghan is rising above it.”

“Things are still fraught,” a royal insider revealed, referring to Harry and Prince William’s relationship. William is still hesitant to spend time alone with Harry because “you never know what will be reported back.”
Another insider revealed last year that Prince Charles was concerned that Harry would use his book to target the Duchess of Cornwall, and that he told William about his concerns.
According to Harry’s official press release, the memoirs will be a “definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him.”
“I’m writing this not as the prince to whom I was born, but as the man I’ve become,” Harry said in a statement. I’ve worn a lot of hats in my life, both literally and metaphorically, and my hope is that by sharing my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes and the lessons learned – I can show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.”
