Prince Harry and Meghan Markle went public as a couple in late 2016. The pair has since married and have two children together. 

However, some onlookers are not very confident in their marriage. In fact, a royal biographer claims that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s marriage is a “disaster” because the two of them “wind each other up.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been married since 2018

Harry and Meghan got married in May 2018. The couple had a star-studded wedding event at Windsor Castle that was watched by millions of people all over the world.

In May 2019, Harry and Meghan welcomed their first child, a son named Archie.

Several months later, the Sussexes moved to the United States, citing a desire for independence from the royal family.

While living in California, Harry and Meghan welcomed a daughter named Lilibet into their family in June 2021. Later that year, makeup artist Daniel Martin, who is friendly with the couple, told People, “They are loving life as a family of four. They’ve struck a rhythm as a foursome.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s marriage is a ‘disaster,’ biographer claims

In the past few years, Harry has been involved in numerous legal battles with the media. The prince has accused some news outlets of publishing false information about him and defaming his image.

According to royal biographer Tina Brown, Harry’s lawsuits say a lot about his marriage with Meghan.

“Harry decided to absolutely not capitulate to any dialogue with the press who he believes killed his mother, ruined his life and ruined Meghan’s life,” Brown said (via The Telegraph). “That’s his view. And he’s not entirely wrong.”

Brown continued, “But doing battle with the British media is a lost cause. And, unfortunately, Meghan is as combative about it as he is. William and Kate calm each other down a lot; their marriage works very well in that way. In the Sussex marriage, they wind each other up and it’s Us Against the World, and that’s a disaster.”

Another author said the marriage works because Meghan Markle makes decisions for Prince Harry

However, other royal experts have a different view of the Sussexes’ relationship. According to author Tom Quinn, Harry and Meghan have a dynamic similar to that of Queen Elizabeth’s uncle, King Edward VIII, and his wife, Wallis Simpson.

“Mrs Simpson was a strong, dominant woman who gave Edward VIII everything his mother hadn’t given him, he was vulnerable just as Harry is vulnerable,” Quinn said, according to Express. “If a man who is not very decisive meets a very decisive woman or the other way around they often get on very well because one makes the decisions and the other one goes along with it.” 

Quinn added, “Meghan and Harry work because Harry is quite a vulnerable person who only lived in this gilded cage, he’s not very worldly. Meghan makes things happen, Meghan makes the decisions.”
