It is a well-known fact that Prince Harry was not happy in the royal setup even before his marriage to Meghan Markle. The younger prince felt trapped in the Palace as he had trouble making public appearances. The family was also aware of the Duke taking external help in the form of counseling to cope with the pressure.
It was a few days back that it was revealed that within six months of his marriage with Markle, Prince Harry was looking for a way out. Following the revelations, the royal author Dr. Tessa Dunlop has shed more light on the relationship between the Duke and the former American actress. She also drew similarities between the relationship of the Sussexes and the 73-year-old marriage of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
How did Meghan Markle transform Prince Harry’s life?
The royal commentator revealed that just like Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s relationship was transformative and based on love. As per Dunlop, the Suits alum changed the younger prince’s life by taking him out of his misery and giving him a new platform.
Speaking about the marriage of the late monarch, Dr. Tessa Dunlop reflected on how the Queen brought the former Prince of Greece and Denmark into the institution. Elizabeth transformed the Duke of Edinburgh’s life by taking him out of poverty and making him a crucial part of the British monarchy.
“Elizabeth transformed Philip’s life by bringing him into the institution, and Meghan has transformed Harry’s life by enabling him to leave the institution. The marriages of both spares were transformative, one was transitioned into the institution and the other out of it,” the royal commentator said while speaking to Express.
Prince Harry’s memoir Spare is likely to shed more light on how he felt being in the royal set-up in the United Kingdom. The book may also describe what changed for the Sussex royal by living a private life with his wife Meghan Markle and two children, Archie and Lilibet.
