Harry and Meghan ‘desperate to control narrative’ before US move, says expert

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry left the Royal Family because they 'wanted to control the narrative', a royal expert has claimed.

Commentator Tom Bower made the frank comments to Closer magazine this week, telling them that isolation would be 'sad' for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as well as their children Archie, two, and Lilibet Diana, four.

He also said that he thought Meghan was 'stubborn', but would eventually decide to rebuild relationships with the rest of The Firm for the benefit of the kids.

Mr Bower commented: "I believe Meghan is a very stubborn person, but I think eventually even she'll realise that this isolated world she and Harry and built for themselves was a poisonous choice"

"They seem so desperate to control the narrative that they can't risk anyone else influencing it – but this will simply cause more damage to them in the future, when their children grow up with no family around them".

He also said that her decision to cut ties with her father Thomas Markle Senior at the same time as alienating the Royal Family leaves the young family with dwindling connections on both sides.

Mr Bower claimed the Sussexes would realise in time that this was a mistake that does 'more harm than good'.

Another source said earlier this week Prince Harry was 'feeling helpless' in LA over the Queen's health scare.

The insider claimed to The Sun that Harry went into 'panic mode' when hearing his grandmother was in hospital and told to rest by doctors.

Meghan and Harry moved across the Atlantic in March last year after stepping down as senior members of the royal family.

The Duke later told Oprah Winfrey he feared his wife would see the same fate as his late mother Diana, after the increase in online abuse and surge in public interest.

Meghan told the US host in the bombshell interview that she barely left her home in months following her marriage to Harry.

The Duchess, 40, also shared how she had suicidal thoughts when she was pregnant with Archie, with mental health charities and royal fans praising Meghan for speaking about her mental health.
