Prince Harry Is Still ‘In Awe’ of Meghan Markle Despite Royal Backlash Over That Documentary
Meghan Markle shocked the world when she recently admitted – in a documentary in which Prince Harry also seemed to confirm his feud with his brother – to struggling as a member of the royal family. The Duchess of Sussex opened up about her issues in a bombshell documentary, which has reportedly sparked quite a bit of backlash with the rest of the royals. Although Markle is still dealing fallout from her interview, experts believe Harry is still in awe of his wife and supports her in every way possible.
Prince Harry finds love
It has been well over a year since Prince Harry and Markle tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony inside St. George’s Chapel. The two were set up by a mutual friend back in 2016 and it did not take long before their romance heated up.
Prior to his relationship with Markle, Harry had gained a reputation as being the wild one in the family. For example, he was spotted playing strip billiards during his days in the military and loved to party.
That all changed, of course, when he met Markle and decided to settle down. Not only does Harry take his royal duties more seriously now, but he has also quit smoking and drinking, and even started taking yoga classes.
Harry is in awe of Markle
In her book, Harry: Conversations with the Prince, biographer Angela Levin revealed exactly why Harry changed his wild ways for Markle. According to Express, Levin claims that Prince Harry has always been vocal about his feelings but has dialed things back now that he’s married to Markle.
“Harry has always worn his heart on his sleeve,” Levin shared. “It’s obvious he loves his wife, but he is also in awe of her.”
Levin theorizes that Harry has taken a back seat in the relationship because he wants to please Markle. This, according to Levin, has made Prince Harry a shell of his former self and has “emasculated” him.
“On many occasions he has also seemed to be a shadow of himself: miserable, tense, sulky and even emasculated. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why, but perhaps all the changes Meghan has encouraged him to adopt have temporarily made him no longer feel quite himself,” Levin explained.
Levin also noted that Prince Harry has been less active than ever before. Last year, for instance, he only took part in 192 royal events, which is less than half the total of Prince Charles, who fulfilled a whopping 507 engagements.
Harry has not commented on the reports surrounding his relationship with Meghan Markle.
Markle dishes on her problems with the media
As a former actress in Hollywood, many royal watchers expected her to adjust nicely to life as a member of the royal family.
But even Markle did not anticipate all the obstacles she would face in the media. The Suits alum has been the subject of countless rumors over the past year and has had a difficult time getting used to the constant attention.
In a new documentary, titled Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, Markle opened up about these struggles and admitted that she has barely survived the constant onslaught.
Prince Harry also took part in the documentary and talked about his rumored feud with Prince William. The Duke of Sussex revealed that he has experienced some ups and downs with his brother, seemingly confirming that their relationship is on the rocks.
The royal family was reportedly blindsided by the documentary but that has not stopped Harry and Meghan from showing their affection in public.
Prince Harry and Markle join the royal family for Remembrance Sunday
Despite the backlash from the documentary, Harry and Markle took part in the Remembrance Sunday activities over the weekend.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined the rest of the royal family inside royal Albert Hall on Saturday, where they were spotted enjoying a special moment together.
Fans went crazy on social media after they caught Prince Harry and Markle looking lovingly at each other at the event, which many took as proof that their relationship is still rock solid. The appearance was the first time Harry and Meghan have appeared with other members of the royal family since the documentary aired.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also expected to travel to the United States in a few weeks to celebrate Thanksgiving with Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland. They will be taking their son, Archie Harrison, along for the trip, which is expected to last several weeks.
