Date November 1, 2019

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's African tour continues to fuel the press's attention. Now, a journalist is making a shocking claim about the trip.

Documentary on the royal couple

Tom Bradby has opened up on his experience interviewing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for the documentary. The ITV news anchor was among the journalists who accompanied the Sussexes on their royal tour.

During an appearance on Good Morning America, Tom talked about the royal couple. He said:

I went intending to make a documentary that was always going to be about their work in Africa. The reality I found was just a couple that seemed a bit bruised and vulnerable.

A journalist Richard Palmer claims the “atmosphere was dripping with poison" during Prince Harry and Meghan’s royal tour in Africa.

Speaking on a podcast Pod Save the Queen hosted by Ann Gripper, the Daily Express royal correspondent noted that the Duchess didn’t really interact. Palmer said:

I used to love going away with Prince Harry. He always had a bit of banter and I just wish we could get back to that.

I wasn’t in Africa, but people who were there, are saying the atmosphere was dripping with poison. Meghan doesn’t really interact, but at least she seems like she’s enjoying herself and Harry just doesn’t.

How Harry lectured a journalist

According to The Sun, Harry scolded a Sky News reporter Rhiannon Mills for her behavior during the couple's tour. The journalist had asked an unscheduled question after Harry had visited a health clinic in Malawi.

The question didn’t go well with the Duke as he replied the reporter saying:

Rhiannon, don't behave like this.

We do feel sorry for the Sussex couple. Hopefully, members of the press will give them a little bit of space.
