inews: Never mind Prince Harry, the Royal Family’s censorship of its archives is the real scandal. “Prince Harry’s very public divorce from the Royal Family does raise questions about how much the monarchy will be able to keep a lid on its secrets. But I suspect that the bigger historical pressure is just around the corner – the growing demand for full independence by the King’s Caribbean dominions, the new focus of historians on British culpability for colonialism, and the passionate demand for restitution and reparations by some Black Brits are likely to lead to a rise in requests for archival material that covers the House of Windsor’s personal involvement in Commonwealth history.”
