Royal author Robert Jobson said the purpose of being a member of the monarchy was “serving and helping others”. Mr Jobson added royal life was “not to do with helping yourself”.

The royal expert told Page Six: “I’m afraid that’s what’s happened here.

“I blame Harry, really, because he knew the story but he wanted his cake and to eat it and you can’t do that.”

Mr Jobson also said Harry should have better prepared Meghan Markle for royal life.

He said: “It’s a combination of Harry and Meghan’s fault, mainly Harry for not explaining it to her properly.

“He’s not the sharpest guy, but maybe he didn’t want to explain it.

“It’s hard work being a member of the Royal Family.

“People think it’s not but it is.

“It’s not glamorous and maybe she didn’t fancy that after at all.”

But Mr Jobson added Meghan should also have done her research.

He said: “It’s up to you to do your own homework if you want to marry into a prestigious family.”

During the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview, Meghan said she entered royal life “naively”.

The former Suits actress told the US talk show host: “I went into it naively because I didn’t grow up knowing much about the Royal Family.

“It wasn’t something that was part of conversation at home, it wasn’t something that we followed.”

Meghan and Harry quit royal duties in March 2020 for a new life in America.

The couple initially wanted to continue supporting the Queen while earning their own money but the plan was deemed unworkable due to fears they would be accused of cashing in on their royal status.

They are now living in an £11 million mansion in California.

The Sussexes, who are expecting their second child, have struck lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify as they pursue new lives of personal and financial freedom.

The former actress and the Queen’s grandson plunged the Royal Family into crisis with their Megxit decision last year. And they sparked a fresh crisis with their tell-all TV interview, which aired in March.

Meghan and Harry made a set of damaging claims about the monarchy in the controversial interview, including racism accusations.

Hary returned to the UK weeks later for the first time since Megxit for Prince Philip’s funeral.
