Meghan Markle and Prince Harry: Who Is the Dominant Partner Between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex?

We all know that in most relationships, one partner usually has a stronger personality. When we see the members of the royal family, we often forget that behind closed doors, their marriages are typical in so many ways. Usually, when royals make appearances, we are seeing them in a different light, and they don’t really share the personal details of their relationships. 

For the past few years, all eyes have been on Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. They are one of the most intriguing couples in the entire British royal family, and their huge fan base is always interested in everything that they do.

Unlike Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, the Sussexes have made many changes since they got married, and the one thing that is not always clear is how or why they arrived at a certain decision. The couple likely has serious discussions in private, but many fans are still left wondering — is Meghan or Prince Harry the dominant partner?

A marriage that was truly meant to be

Prince Harry dated quite a few people over the years, there is certainly no doubt about that. Although he had more than one serious girlfriend, it almost seemed as if he would never be ready to settle down.
