Royal Expert Says Prince Harry Needs to ‘Come To His Senses’ About Meghan Markle Marriage

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wed in an elaborate ceremony in May 2018, after less than two years of knowing each other. Some might say they rushed into it, while others believe that when you know, you know. Still, the decisions the two have made since marrying, including their massive royal exit, have led many people to question how much of a say Harry has had in his life over the past few years. And one royal expert hopes the prince soon comes to his senses.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle exited the royal family in March

Late last year, Harry and Meghan took a six-week hiatus from royal duties to spend some time in Canada as a family. Upon returning, the two decided that they no longer felt they had a place in the royal family and announced in January that they intended to step back. The couple continued living in Canada through mid-March; they later relocated to Los Angeles, presumably because Meghan’s mother was there and it was an area she was familiar with. Harry and Meghan officially left the family on March 31.

Despite that Harry and Meghan were doing what made them happy, there was a lot of backlash from royal fans, as it was suspected Meghan had encouraged Harry to pick up and leave.

There have been reports that Harry isn’t happy in LA

Now that Meghan and Harry have settled into LA, there are more stories circulating that the prince isn’t adapting as well as he thought he would. LA is far different from London, and Harry supposedly has felt some guilt for leaving his family behind.

Recent reports suggest that Harry doesn’t feel comfortable in California and is experiencing the same kind of “outcast” feelings that Meghan experienced while the two were living in the United Kingdom. However, Harry hasn’t outwardly spoken about his new life, so the reports are mostly speculation.

Many people in Britain are unhappy with Harry’s decision to leave. And royal experts fear that he’s allowing Meghan to control his life and will eventually become unhappy with all of the changes. According to Page Six, longtime royal photographer Arthur Edwards feels that Harry’s criticisms of the Commonwealth are only furthering the divide between him and his family.

“Unfortunately for the last couple of years he has gone completely sour,” Edwards said. “I’ve been photographing him since the day he was born… I think the moment [Meghan] married Harry, [she was thinking,] ‘Right let’s get out of here as quick as we can.” Edwards, who has followed the royal family for years, doesn’t think the prince is making his own decisions. “Hopefully he comes to his senses soon.”

Will Harry and Meghan ever return to the United Kingdom?

Right now, there is nothing to confirm that Harry is unhappy in LA or that he has no say in the couple’s decisions. Royal experts have speculated on Harry’s feelings based on their knowledge of the family. With that said, if Harry were unhappy, it’s possible the two would start splitting their time more evenly between the U.S. and the U.K.

It’s unlikely that Harry and Meghan will permanently return to the U.K. or rejoin the royal family. The two spent months planning and finalizing their departure, and they certainly weighed their options to fully understand what they’d be leaving behind once they made the move.
