Is Prince Harry worried about running into Kristen Stewart during the awards season?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Visit the World Trade Center

Did you see Spencer? I thought it was okay, and I thought Kristen Stewart was good in it. Like, Kristen didn’t seem like Diana AT ALL, but Kristen was truly acting and she wasn’t just lip-biting and rolling her eyes through it. It helped that Spencer wasn’t a strict bio-pic in any way, it was actually much closer to a historical horror film, and Pablo Larrain definitely leaned more into horror tropes than “royal bio-pic” tropes. I could definitely see how both Prince William and Prince Harry would not like any part of it. As is their right! It’s Larrain’s right to dramatize a story about one of the most famous women in the world and it’s Diana’s sons’ right to hate it. So, funny story: sources claim that Harry really does not want to run into Kristen Stewart during the awards season.

With awards season kicking into high gear, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are eager to hit the glam party circuit, but a source says Harry is worried about bumping into a certain A-lister — Kristen Stewart. The Spencer star, 31, has been winning raves for her dark, disturbing portrayal of his late mother, Princess Diana, “and it’s struck a sour note with Harry. He’s pretty appalled by the film,” spills the source, who says the last thing the retired royal wants is an embarrassing run-in with the actress.

Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, “have been invited to all the big events and planned on attending the Oscars too, but they’d almost certainly come face-to-face with Kristen since she’s a lock for a best actress nomination,” adds the source. For her part, Meghan “figures they can just ignore Kristen or be briefly polite, but Harry’s not one to be fake, and his nerves are still raw,” continues the source. “He’s actually thinking about skipping the Oscars, but Meghan really wants to get back into the Hollywood scene.” Nothing wrong with a little acting, Harry!

[From OK Magazine, print edition, January 10, 2022]

First of all, while I think Harry and Meghan probably will be invited to awards-season parties and events, I doubt they’re going to be seen out and about at multiple events in the next three months. Maybe a screening, maybe a private party, and I would think that they would save their first awards-show appearance for the Oscars. If they do go to the Oscars, it might legitimately be difficult to avoid Kristen Stewart. There’s so much mingling and glad-handing at the Oscars. So… maybe Harry should be concerned. That being said, Kristen has been perfectly respectful of Harry and William in interviews. She basically just avoids those questions and says they have the right to not watch or like the movie.

    Fake news

    If I was Harry I would be concerned that I would double over with laughter or cry at her awful and I mean terrible portrayal of Diana…..I had to turn if off!

    • Jan90067 says:

      The movie was pretty bad lol And tiny little KS, as statuesque Diana was a joke.

      This said, I doubt H&M watched it, even on a screener. And somehow, I don’t think they’d be out mingling at the Oscars this year, with this super contagious Omicron variant; I doubt they’d want to go to just schmooze and bring anything home to two small kids.

      • 2tall4u2 says:

        I can tell you it’s not looking good for any awards this season. The Grammys just postphoned their show, SAG Awards not looking good, and frankly I think it’s going to be another zoom awards season. No one wants to risk their health to collect an award.

  3. Emma says:

    This sounds kinda fake. I can’t imagine Harry is losing sleep over maybe running into one person. There have been a thousand portrayals of Diana, and Harry is well aware how she was neglected and mistreated by his father’s family.

    • Bettyrose says:

      IKR? I can’t name them all but there are attractive blondes milling about in any Hollywood circle who’ve played Diana in some capacity throughout the years. Or who might someday.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Exactly–she’s an actress, so she portrays the individual the way the writer wrote it as seen through the director’s lense. Why would he get upset because someone was working?

    • Lyds says:

      This sounds like something the palaces put out there as a warning for Harry to stay away from anything related to the Spencer movie. They tried to guilt-trip him on working w Netflix and now they’re firing warning shots/trying to start a fake feud. They know how redundant it is to show how angry Charles or Bully is with the movie; using Harry’s name it is!

  4. Amy Bee says:

    This is so sad. The press has no info on Harry and Meghan so they have to resort to fantasy. LOL. Anyway, I doubt Harry and Meghan will be going to any award shows. Maybe they will go an after party, like Elton’s or Netflix’s but I don’t expect Harry to freak out or be rude if he sees KStew. As we’ve seen in the past, Harry knows how to behave in public, he’s not William or Kate.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Harry has thick skin. The only person that I see that would be appalled to be in the same room with KS is Baldimort, as he is always enraged regarding to stories/movies pertaining to his mother.

      Harry survived his family and The Firm. KS is nothing to him. Harry will be his usual, charming self and congratulate KS as that is her job, whether she did or not.

      They are truly pulling crap out of their @sses with this bit! We don’t have anything on the money makers, so let go with this line of BS! It will sell!!! Man, I have got mortgage payments to make!!!

      • Deering24 says:

        Yeah, this sounds like typical projection. I could definitely see William acting out over something this stupid, but not Harry.

  5. Eurydice says:

    Oh please, Harry managed to be cheerful at the Diana statue ceremony, and that was facing Will who actually trashed both Meghan and Diana in real life. I think Harry can handle running into Kristen Stewart.

    • Christine says:

      Yeah, I’m with you. This is dumb, if Harry can face his horrid relatives with a smile on his face, Kristen Stewart is not keeping him awake at night.

  6. Bettyrose says:

    Harry is used to the media telling his family’s story. There’s nothing new here. He might not be interested in seeing the film but why would he beef with KStew? She’s done nothing to disrespect his family nor put his wife and children in any danger. If anything the film further solidified for people why he left.

    • Becks1 says:

      He had a really good answer for James Corden about the Crown so yeah, I don’t think he’s holding a grudge against Stewart for this one.

  7. GuestWho says:

    Remember last week when H&M said they would not be using “sources” and that anything they have to say will come from them directly or from Archewell? This is the kind of stuff they were referring to.

    • Misskitten says:

      RE: GUESTWHO: I was thinking the exact same thing. Unnamed sources speaking for Harry & Meghan = fake news. The tabloids are just trying to remind everyone how “Hollywood” Harry is now

  8. SnarcasmQueen says:

    You want me to believe that Meghan, the former actress, is holding a grudge against another actress for…working….

    Did Kristen portray Diana as a baby eating monster?

  9. Becks1 says:

    They had to get that dig in about Meghan and Hollywood, didn’t they? What about when the FFK attends the BAFTAs? I would think that would be a lot more awkward if she wins at that one than at the Oscars.

    Do I think H&M are going to attend the Oscars? Absolutely. Do I think it will be THIS year? Not really. I think when they go it will be either because they are nominated or are asked to present a significant award or something. (I could see them giving out the Oscar for best documentary or something.) But I doubt it will be this year, I think they’re going to keep working on establishing themselves first. (I could be wrong though, stranger things have happened, lol.)

    Anyway, as far as the movie goes, I don’t think Harry would avoid Stewart because of that. The movie doesn’t really disparage any members of the royal family, even Charles – yes he’s cheating on his wife and she can’t stand it, and he’s patronizing, but the Crown is so much worse for the entire family. I think Harry might even like the portrayal in Spencer bc it shows Diana as a victim, haunted by the pressures of the royal family and unhappy with her life’s choices – I think Harry could understand that.

    It’s a royal horror movie more than anything (if that’s a genre, lol) but I don’t think its the kind of movie where Harry would avoid Stewart because of the movie itself. Maybe just out of the sheer awkwardness of meeting someone who played his mother.

    • Jais says:

      Yeah the line saying that “Meghan really wants to get back into the Hollywood scene” is where this article just became silly. Maybe they’ll go to the Oscars? Idk but if they do it’s not bc Meghan really wants to get back into the scene. Please, that scene would be begging for Meghan to attend.

    • Nic919 says:

      They are just projecting from the other duchess who wants media attention. There is no way Meghan wants to go to Oscar parties during a pandemic with two young kids. She’s not the one who wore a gold dress from dynasty acting like it was something special.

      I don’t see them doing awards shows unless something produced by Archwell is nominated.

    • Mavsmom31 says:

      That’s exactly what this is. Just an excuse to accuse Meghan of dragging him into the Hollywood lifestyle. The BM want Meghan to be Elizabeth Taylor so much they can’t stand it. His family lives in 30+ room historical palaces with rooms full of priceless whatsits and armies of servants and meet with world leaders and entertainers. But somehow the Sussex house in California with the big yard and wealthy neighbors is SOOOO Hollywood and they just know that Meghan wears silk gowns and diamonds to make waffles for her the family. SHAMELESS!!!

  10. lanne says:

    Haven’t the tabloids got the memo that no sources speak for Harry and Meghan? This is total bullshit. Harry knows his mother is a public figure. he’s lived through the Crown, the Queen, even movies about his own life. This is “grasping at straws because there’s no news”. If the story contains the words “a source said,” it’s bullshit. Just speculation.

    The ratchets have stooped to writing about the grass growing on their lawn. What’s next, speculation about the contents of Lili’s diapers? Cant these folks find some dignity?

  11. WithTheAmerican says:

    Harry is married to a former actress. Pretty sure he has a grip on the fact that the actress isn’t responsible for the script or production choices usually.

    God these people are desperate to make conflict for Harry.

  12. Angelica Schuyler says:

    There have been so many actresses that have portrayed Princess Diana…Why would Harry be worried about running into any of those actresses? – Even if he hated their portrayal of his mother…They are actresses playing a role, nothing more. This article is much ado about nothing, More fan fiction from the starving RR.

    • Bettyrose says:

      If an actress chose to take a part that portrayed Diana very disrespectfully, I suppose I could see Harry not warmly embracing that actress, but that movie would also bomb. No one wants to see that.

  13. Chelsea says:

    There are a lot of ridiculous fake stories about the Sussexes right now but this might be the dumbest one. Does anyone actually believe that Harry would be bitter against KStew who is just an actress and didnt write this film especially when he has stated that he has less issues with exaggerated movies/tv shows about his family than tabloid lies about family multiple times.

    Also: Meghan has barely left the house the last 2 years and has shown no interest in doing Hollywood chasing( in part probably because she doesn’t need to). They will need to be more public this year to promote their work but the idea that they will be at every Hollywood party is ridiculous. If that’s what they were after they wouldn’t have chosen to live 2 hrs away from LA.

    • Deering24 says:

      Hmm, someone here should do a top-ten most ridiculous current fake stories list. This is bad, but the one about the Sussexes’ lawn wrecking the environment was also knock-yer-eyes-out doofy. 🙄🙄🙄🤮🤮

    • Oh, they’re trying to spin Meghan not leaving the house much, too. I’ve seen “Meghan ashamed to leave house after Ellen backlash!!” here and there.

  14. equality says:

    I think this is just the dream of the tabloids. They hope for H&M to go to something big to give them something to write about.

  15. jferber says:

    Yeah, Harry can be hurt by his family, but not by an actress who played his mum on TV. He’s much more resilient than that.

  16. Mslove says:

    This might be the silliest story yet. Try harder, OK magazine writers.

  17. MerryGirl says:

    No news from the Sussexes = Slow news day. That’s all this is as we all know no sources speak for Harry & Meghan. Next.

  18. Tessa says:

    The awards season may be remote because of COVID. And the parties not taking place.

  19. L4Frimaire says:

    Ok this is just dumb. We know how H&M feel about random “sources”. Were they worried about William seeing Olivia Coleman at the BAFTAs? He’s been around more Hollywood stars than Harry has. It seems like these people are so thirsty for Hollywood pap shots of the Sussexes and so far they got nothing. Kristen Stewart in real life seems so unintimidating and low key. I think he can discern fiction from reality. I noticed how they slyly put that Meghan wants to get back into the Hollywood scene. Does she now? She has lots of friends in H’wood already. She doesn’t need to get back into anything and seems fairly busy ( I want a podcast). They so really want to see red carpet shots of the Sussexes and really have no idea what they’re doing. The clothes accountants are on standby waiting to add up the costs of her shoes and engagement ring again. Must be a slow news week in royal circles with these articles about the Sussexes lawn or who they might possibly run into if they happen to go to an awards show in LA.

    • Jay says:

      Exactly – this is just a way for them to slip in the little barb about the Sussexes proximity to Hollywood again.

      So far, the royals haven’t tried to take back Peter Morgan’s OBE or banished Helen Mirren or any actors who have played any royal family members ever. What would the British film and tv industry look like otherwise?

  20. Izzy says:

    That entire piece of fan fiction was written JUST so they could get in a dig about Meghan wanting to get back into the Hollywood scene.

    • Zoochy says:

      For real. I’ve seen better writing on Wattpad.

    • L4Frimaire says:

      I don’t know about Meghan but the UK press desperately want Meghan to live some fictional version of what they think Hollywood life is like. I suspect they think it’s the bygone early 2000s version of Lindsay, Paris and Brittany going to nightclubs and flashing the paparazzi or some Real Housewives nonsense . Ugh, why are they like this?

  21. Layla says:

    You know this story is fake the second you read “sources say”

  22. Catherine says:

    Fake News. Since they left the tabloids have had them attending every high profile event they could think of. It’s their way of establishing the they are just seeking a Hollywood/celebrity lifestyle. There has been no indication that they are looking to get on the award show circuit. Or that they are chasing Hollywood status symbols the way the tabloids would have you believe. IMO. The palace inside sources are still reeling from that absolutely loving Sussex Christmas photo that was globally popular so of course they push a narrative of Harry and Meghan having a conflict with of course Meghan being portrayed as shallow. They hate their happiness. Also, they seem intent on condemning anything portraying Diana sympathetically and they want to use Harry to do so because all their screaming and yelling hasn’t had any effect.

  23. Marigold says:

    I thought Spencer was awful.

  24. Gabby says:

    Fake handwringing. But I hope the Sussexes have been invited to all the events.

    If Harry could handle running into his awful brother at the statue unveiling last July, he could certainly handle running into Kristen Stewart who differs from said brother by actually being a decent human being. JFC.

  25. bisynaptic says:

    this is all BS.

  26. Robin Samuels says:

    Harry and Meghan recently released a statement saying if the comment doesn’t come from Archewell or a member of their staff who will identify as a confirmed source, don’t believe the story. This one is in the top 10 of dumb stories. Meghan was never into the Hollywood scene, but they can’t let go of “she’s an American actress.” I’ve never known Harry to be abrupt to anyone other than members of the Royal Rota. To the best of my knowledge, HELLO has never written a positive story on Meghan since she married Harry.

  27. Tessa says:

    I think this is fake news and just used by the media so in their comments sections the bots could rant about Meghan being an “actress.”
