King Charles and the rest of the Royal Family have ignored all of the damning claims made by Prince Harry in his recent book and TV interviews.
Dr McCreery is of this opinion and told Express.co.uk such an approach was “the only response they could do – ignore it”.
She said: “Time heals all wounds. Charles is playing the long game and Harry doesn’t have much left in the tank in terms of further revelations.”
The historian predicts that we have “passed the peak” of royal drama from the Sussexes and added: “Charles just has to suck it up and carry on and hope that over time people forget about it.”

Both Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace have refused to comment on any of the revelations from Prince Harry’s memoir or TV interviews, despite the scale of some of the allegations.
The Duke of Sussex claimed the Prince of Wales physically assaulted him, that Charles and Queen Camilla’s office would brief the media against the Sussexes to improve their image, are no longer on the front pages, and that Charles didn’t hug him after he told his sons about the news of Princess Diana’s death.
Dr McCreery noted that Harry’s revelations “have been very painful and difficult” with the claims making the front pages in Australia when they first emerged.
The story is no longer as prominent, she said, but they have “left people with a bad tast in their mouths about the British Royal Family”.

Commenting on the poll, Dr McCreery said Harry’s claims have had an impact in Australia because they have prompted people to consider the continued relevance of the Royal Family.
“Australians are starting to think, things could be different”, she said, adding: “It has caused people to think ‘is this really the best we can do?’
“Some people are thinking, the Royal Family is just fighting with one another – how can they possibly put our interests, as head of state, is that really going to work for us?”
