Former Palace spokesman regrets telling Meghan and Harry to “play the game” with press
James Holt, former Palace spokesman and Executive Director of the Archwell Foundation admitted: “I actually regret it wholeheartedly,” as he shared his experiences dealing with the press on behalf of Meghan and Harry.
During an event he was taking part in alongside the Duke and Duchess, James revealed a photographer had asked: “Oh can’t you get him to do something more? He doesn’t perform for us anymore.” He then went on to confess he had told the couple to “play the game.”
It was this regrettable decision, James said, that led to the family feeling they had an “obligation to perform” in exchange for positive coverage in the newspapers.
He continued: “If they didn’t you would fall out of favour and then any opportunity would be used to write negative or highlight negative would be taken.”Meghan opened up about grappling with her new life as a Royal (Image: Netflix)
