Prince Harry was ‘changed by Meghan’ and ‘resented not being taken seriously’

Prince Harry“resented not being taken seriously” after developing a "wild reputation", a royal commentator has claimed.

Prior to his departure from the Royal Family, the Duke of Sussex’s rift with Prince William was well publicised.

During an interview with ITV journalist Tom Bradby, Harry himself admitted that the brothers were on “different paths”.

Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams believes the younger royal struggled to escape his image as a “wild child”.

He told Entertainment Daily: “Harry’s reputation was as the royal wild child for years, William’s image was far more serious however he behaved.

“Some say Harry resented not being taken seriously, despite his military service and charitable work.”

In the months before Megxit, there were clear tensions between Harry, his wife, William and Kate Middleton.

Mr Fitzwiliams went on: “The ‘Fab Four’ idea, that William and Catherine and Harry and Meghan would work together despite their different roles and personalities was a disaster.

“But no one predicted it. Harry now believes he was trapped as a member of the royal family…and that William currently is but doesn’t know it.

“The rift between them, long reported and first confirmed in the ITV documentary about their South Africa trip, is public and serious.

“It was his marriage to Meghan which unquestionably changed him.”

Earlier this month, a brand expert told the Daily Star thatHarrymay have deliberately left out allegations in theOprah Winfreyinterview so he would have more material for his book.

The Duke of Sussexannounced he was working on a new memoir last month, sending shockwaves through the Royal Family.

Harry has teamed up with Pulitzer Prize-winning ghostwriter JR Moehringer and has already finished the first draft,Page Sixreported.

Prince WiliamandPrince Charlesare already reportedly "nervous" about the book’s contents.

Eric Schiffer, a brand and reputation management expert, told the Daily Star it could have a significant impact on the royals’ standing.

Asked if Harry had held back material in the Oprah interview, he responded: “Yes, without question.

“He didn’t fire all cannons tied to his deep emotional pain, childhood angst, and challenges with Meghan and the royal family to the fullest extent.

“They likely recognise that either for personal reasons or financial reasons, it made more sense to hold tight.”
