Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are ‘Remarkably Naive’ Thinking They Can Change the World, Expert Claims
Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex have stepped up for a number of causes and hope to have an impact on changing the world by using their platform. One royal expert is skeptical, however, believing that the Sussexes are “naive” in their thinking.
Can Prince Harry and Meghan Markle make a difference?
The Sussexes have lent their voices to environmental issues and Black Lives Matter discussions, and their upcoming organization Archewell promises that they’ll make a positive contribution to the world.
Royal biographer Lady Colin Campbell told The Sun that, even though the Sussexes have a following from their time in the royal spotlight, they probably are naive in their belief that they can make a difference.
“They don’t know how good they’ve got it,” Campbell explained. “They should just embrace their life. Unfortunately, Harry’s not got much going for him other than he was born a prince.”
She continued, “He would struggle to hold down a job stacking shelves in Tesco. He’s never lived in the real world. Meghan was a D-list actress in a show on a cable channel. To think they can change the world is remarkably naive.”
“I think Meghan’s over-confidence has been the problem. I fear for him,” she added.
Campbell thinks Prince Harry ‘suffers from second son complex’
Campbell’s criticisms of the couple don’t end there, as she shed some light on her belief that Prince Harry has been in his brother’s shadow for so long, he “suffers from second son complex.”
“Harry suffers from a second son complex. He’s not counting his blessings at all,” Campbell shared. “I’ve studied history, and he has the biggest chip on his shoulder of any member of the royal family in the past few centuries.”
“He has been so painfully troubled and unhinged by being the second son,” she added. “Diana would big up his ego when he was younger. I remember thinking he needs to remember he can’t have it all. Barring a terrible disaster, he won’t be the next king.”
Campbell discussed the idea that Prince Harry has been spoiled during his life and he “got used to having what he wanted, it seemed to me, which he has taken into his adult life.”
One expert believes Prince Harry is ‘fed up’
Royal biographer Angela Levin seems to share some of Campbell’s concerns about Prince Harry, especially in regards to how he reportedly got angry at Prince William for giving him brotherly advice about Meghan. In an interview with Royal Rota, Levin blamed Harry’s years of feeling inferior for the feud with his brother.
“Having spoken to Harry for quite a long time and I also followed him for a year for my biography, I understand that he’s fed up with being the second boy,” she explained. “He was fed up with it as a child and it was always William first. William would be invited by the Queen Mother to go for tea, but not Harry.”
Levin added, “So he sort of missed out and I think that when you’re in your mid-30s, you can suddenly say, ‘No, leave me alone. It’s my life.'”
