  • Published: 13 January 2020
  • As an emergency meeting takes place Monday over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's future, opinions in Britain are starkly divided. While some support the declaration of independence, others question it. Prince Harry's biographer and royal historian Penny Junor joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss why she believes his recent behavior is "uncharacteristic."

          She may likely be a narcissist:

            NPD is something you should know about. This isn’t about race for most ppl, most just see a man who’s in a destructive relationship and the woman very possibly has NPD. This is a personality disorder that causes someone to have zero empathy and play terrible mind games and control tactics.

                  Black card! Biggest excuse! No one cares about the color of someone's's just an excuse by black people to be racist against white people

                      She is an American woman they hope they don't lose her? I wouldn't have lasted five days being controlled programed. Diana pointed out narcissistic abuse she suffered. What's difference? I see none.

                            This woman is a fraud. She claims to know Harry so well yet she has had no contact with him in three years. She has no idea what is going on with him now. She is out to make money at his expense.

                              Wow. So glad this Penny lady knows Harry better than he knows himself. And such a relief to know that he needn't worry for his wife and child since that rabid pack of jackals known as the press aren't as bad as they were in his mother's day. Ridiculous...

                                Yes Penny should have said people of color instead of colored people but give the woman a break! Help people evolve through kindness. Penny was being attacked and disregarded and not.listened to.

                                  She is absolutely right and Gale is just defending Meghan no matter what. The British press has done nothing compare to what they used to do to Diana, that was harassment. He is not the same person. From the outside he's always grumpy and a shadow of what he use to be before. Americans should know better what a media "attack" looks like and this is nothing.

                                      A prince marries a woman who has a history of using men... it wouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Meghan is pulling the strings over Harry.

                                        The British love Meghan as a punching bag. Nothing positive is ever said about her. I have even begun to think it is racist.

                                            Penny Junor, in order to keep her access to interviews with the British Royal Family, has a pattern of trying to tear down whoever she thinks they are against. She dumped on Diana Princess of Wales after Diana divorced Prince Charles and defended the unfaithful Charles. Now she is dumping on Harry for having grown up and for having the heart and nerve to protect his wife and child against Britain's pence-pinching attacks against Meghan. Penny is a flunky for the BRF. There is no way she would say Harry "stole the idea of Invictus" unless she felt sanctioned by the BRF to discredit him. And in a typical supremacist move, she presumes herself worthy to declare whether Meghan experienced racism in Britain or not. Penny, did you ever bother to ASK Meghan how she was doing, or do you just presume that you can speak for "coloured people"? Sit Penny, sit.

                                              She’s precious and she’s spinning this to may herself a victim and as a UK SUBJECT I think that it sounds like a movie script the whole thing she knew what she was signing up for
                                              I was happy for Harry never watched suit’s so didn’t know her but she seemed pleasant she obviously made him happy I was happy for them but now she has taken the public’s support and snubbed us and used the press
                                              Her family we’re talking about her not us
                                              Bye Megan
                                              Don’t hurt Harry as u seem controlling and have an agenda
                                              She buggered off left Harry to sort her demanding mess out
                                              Hope the pub she was named after does close

                                              I think she doesn’t love her husband and he’s worried that she will divorce him and take his son.
                                              Look at the body language they have together more recently. She has no respect for Harry or the crown.
                                              We don’t all love Megan anymore.

She understood the importance of Harry’s position as a Senior Mwmber of the Royal Family!. She knew exactly what marriage between them would entail. She certainly respected Royal Protocol. She honestly admitted she was not able to live a life in the public eye. And placed Harry’s Birthright first.
                                                                          This is not Hollywood Guys The Royal family comes with heavy expectations of being in the public eye. Megan was told exactly what she was in for and what was expected
                                                                          Do you honesty think she was going to modernise the Royal Family?.... I don’t think so!!!!

SO FRICKING SICK OF THIS CRAP!! I NOW HATE THE WORD RACIST! This video was actually painful to watch because all you tried to do was take this biographer who knew Harry all his life ... down! How well did you know Harry Gail?? When was the last time you talked to him? You will never be a Barbara Walters and in fact ... you wouldn't even be where you are today if Oprah hadn't GIVEN YOU A JOB!! GET OVER YOURSELF!!
