Some Royal Fans Are Worried About Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Marriage — Here’s Why

Marriages are stressful even under the best of circumstances. But when you have millions of people watching your every move, criticizing your actions at every turn, those strained feelings will increase exponentially. And that’s exactly what some fans fear is happening with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

On the outside, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex appear happier than ever. With a new baby at home, a stunning new home, and all the wealth and power in the world, Harry and Meghan have more than their fair share of advantages. But despite it all, these two are under an enormous amount of pressure we can’t even begin to imagine.

That’s why their most loyal fans are worrying about how all the criticism could be negatively affecting their marriage.

Prince Harry met Meghan Markle in the summer of 2016 after the pair was set up on a blind date. Their shockingly short courtship — the two went from dating to engaged to married in less than two years — has been an endless source of contention amongst both friends and family members.

Some believe these two hurried to get married because they were deeply in love. Others insist that their ages played a factor. But either way, their sprint down the altar (at least compared to other royals) has caused a lot of drama in the family.

One other problem with getting married so quickly was that Meghan Markle didn’t have as much time to get used to being a royal under the constant glare of the spotlight. Kate Middleton had a very clear picture of what she was getting into before she married Prince William. But for Meghan? It wasn’t so obvious.

Meghan Markle might have spurred a feud between the brothers

Speaking of rushing into marriage, another reason why things are troublesome for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle right now is she may have come between one of the strongest relationships in the royal family — the bond between brothers.

Prince William and Prince Harry were always close growing up, especially following the tragic death of their mother Princess Diana. But when the Duke of Cambridge warned Harry not to rush into marriage with the woman he loved, the lovestruck younger brother took it badly. That’s allegedly the thing that started this whole royal feud we keep hearing about.

If Meghan Markle did come between Harry and William, however indirectly, it could be making the Duke of Sussex feel upset about that missing bond in his life.

Signs of stress in their marriage are obvious

No one can be perfect all the time, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are proving that now. They’ve been called out a couple of times for having small, dramatic moments in public.

There was the time at the queen’s birthday celebration when Prince Harry had to turn his wife to “Turn around” and “Look” as she appeared to fight back tears. Or when the Sussexes attended an MLB game and Prince Harry appeared to ignore his wife speaking to him.

Like any marriage, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle most likely have good days and bad days. The only difference is that their small arguments look much worse than they really are, especially broadcast across an international stage.

Though fans are fearful that the pressure could be negatively affecting this couple, it seems highly unlikely that it would be enough to split them up. They have their love for each other, the love for their child, and the shared goal of making the world a better place.
