Following the releases of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s docuseries and Harry’s tell-all memoir Spare, the two shared copious never-before-heard details on royal life. Though some stories, like the NSFW story of Harry losing his virginity, didn’t really impact the rest of the British royal family, many others absolutely did.

Among the shocking revelations were Harry and Prince William‘s physical confrontation over Markle, Harry’s feelings about Queen Consort Camilla following Princess Diana‘s death and the distasteful jokes King Charles III would often make about not being Harry’s biological father. No matter how headline-making the revelations were, however, the British family remained quiet throughout the drama.

According to Valentine Low, the author of CourtiersIntrigue, Ambition, and the Power Players Behind the House of Windsor, there’s a reason why Charles decided that no reaction was the way to handle the barrage of headlines generated by his youngest son’s book. “They didn’t want to fan the flames of the rift and the dispute,” he shared with People. “They know that anything said in a statement, or a briefing would prolong it.”

And, though no statement from the family has yet to be released, the royal family has proved to be masters of subtle messaging. After all, there are many other ways to express their discontent to the public without writing it formally.

Take a look below at all the times the royal family shaded Markle and Harry since they stepped down as royals.
