King Charles III has proven that he is the one that calls the shots after his latest move left Prince Harry and Meghan Markle disgruntled.
According to royal commentator Daniela Elser, the couple have "lost their battle" against the monarch and Buckingham Palace.
Elser shared that King Charles' decision to evict the US-based couple from their Frogmore Cottage residence as part of his current strategy to reduce royal expenditure has left the couple agitated.
In a piece for the New Zealand Herald, she wrote: "The house – or more accurately, Buckingham Palace – has won."
"Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, might have spent the last two years waging an exhausting, never-ending battle of wits and PR strategy against The Firm, but they have actually ended up on the losing side," she continued.
"The House of Windsor has sailed through this storm and made it to the other side. And that leaves Harry and Meghan having played all of their cards and the King not having blinked once."
"Even if the self-exiled couple was to, say, pop up on Good Morning America to lob a fresh volley of their signature brand of 'truth bombs' at London, I reckon the public reaction would be something of a collective shrug," the expert said.
