In the documentary, Harry accused his father, now the King, of saying untrue things when the Queen gathered them together at Sandringham in January 2020 in a bid to solve the Megxit crisis.

Harry also claimed his brother’s office, Kensington Palace, traded negative stories just like his father’s had in the past, saying it was “heart-breaking” to see something he and William promised they would “never ever do” taking place.

David Starkey appeared on GB News to look back at the monarchy’s year, he said: “I don't think they much matter, look at the opinion polls today. I mean, a near majority of people not only say they don't much like them, but they actually want them stripped of their titles.

“With every passing day, I think with every desperate attempt at taking a little molehill of grievance and trying to turn it into a vast, vast Himalayas of resentment, they become less relevant.

“What I think Charles is doing is actually playing a rather clever long game. What I would guess he is doing is waiting for them to destroy themselves. So he doesn't actually need to do anything very dramatic.

“He's just letting events take their course, which I think is a very wise thing to do.”
