Prince Harry won’t stop talking

January 6, 2023
Hello, Insiders. This is Joi-Marie McKenzie, the editor-in-chief of Insider’s Life division, filling in for Nicholas Carlson. My team spans entertainment, travel, sports, style, and more — including royals. And right now, everyone’s talking about Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir, “Spare,” in which he calls Prince William his “beloved brother and archnemesis.” (Plus, he’s dishing even more on “60 Minutes”.)


But I want to call attention to another royal: Princess Keisha is an American model who married a Nigerian Prince. She told our senior reporter Mikhaila Friel that, like Meghan Markle, she experienced discrimination in the UK. Her story is worth a read. Want to hear more? Mikhaila is speaking with Princess Keisha next month in a live conversation that you can attend. But for now, let’s get to the news.

It’s been two years since rioters stormed the Capitol — and we’ve learned a lot about the insurrection in the past year.


We now know loads more about the ins and outs of the disastrous event, which left both protesters and police injured, and some even dead.


This was due to the January 6 hearings in the House, led by a nine-member group consisting of seven Democrats and two Republicans. They used the hearings to unveil key information and recommend charges against President Donald Trump.


Combined with cases from the Justice Department, we’ve learned a ton about the riot in the last year — including that Trump deeply desired to attend the Capitol protest in person. It’s also been revealed that the plot to declare victory before votes were counted was hatched as early as four months before Election Day 2020.

Take a look at what else we’ve learned.
