Over the last few weeks rumors, about how difficult and demanding Meghan Markle is, are coming from all directions. Multiple British publications have published stories from many sources, close to the Royals and their staff, claiming that the bond between Prince William and Prince Harry has been starting to break ever since Meghan came into the picture. Vanity Fair reported that Meghan herself felt like the “British press is out to get her” and her and Harry are trying to “hunt down” who’s leaking stories to the press.
A mutual friend of the princes told royal correspondent, Katie Nicholl that Harry was very, very upset that William wasn’t going out of his way to welcome Meghan into the family. “Harry felt William wasn’t rolling out the red carpet for Meghan and told him so,” the source said. “They had a bit of a fallout, which was only resolved when [their dad Prince] Charles stepped in and asked William to make an effort.
Harty showed his protectiveness of Meghan from the very beginning last year when he stood up for her in front of Prince William. The future king reportedly voiced his opinion of thinking that Meghan and Harry are rushing into this too fast. Then Harry reportedly accused William of trying to end his relationship. And even when other members of the family “had concerns” about the relationship, Harry “stood up for Meghan very forcibly. He really loves her,” the source added. That’s when the Cambridges invited the Sussexes to spend Christmas with them.”
Now Us Weekly is reporting that all these reports are having a very negative effect on Meghan and Harry’s relationship.
“It has put pressure on her relationship with Harry. He’s very frustrated with how little can be done,” the source explains of recent stories in the British press. “Keeping her away from the negativity and harm has been hard for him. It’s been his purpose in their relationship to keep her away from the negativity.”
Last week royal correspondent Emily Andrews revealed that Prince Harry is so fiercely protective of his wife because his mother, Princess Diana, was hounded by the paparazzi throughout her life.
“It’s my opinion that Harry feels he couldn’t protect his mother, so he’s going all out to protect his wife. This is his way of atoning,” reveals Andrew in a new report in The Sun. The source says that Prince Harry “will brook absolutely no criticism of Meghan—and he is so sensitive he often sees criticism or negativity where there isn’t any.”
Last month it was famously revealed that Meghana and Harry will move out from Kensington Palace. Moving to Windsor is Prince Harry’s part of the plan to keep his wife safe and future children out of the royal spotlight. They want to raise their child out of the “goldfish bowl of royal life.”
Meanwhile very pregnant Meghan reportedly does not read any of the stories in the press, because “she feels to a degree the British press is out to get her and while she’s aware of the news and what’s going on, she tries her best not to read all the stories about her.”
Last year, before she became officially a member of the Royal family, Meghan revealed to Vanity Fair that the way she deals with nasty rumors is simply ignoring them. “I don’t read any press,” she said. “I haven’t even read press for Suits. The people who are close to me anchor me in knowing who I am. The rest is noise.”
