Meghan Markle is the one wearing the pants in her relationship with Harry and he seems okay with it
The 36-year-old is used to being in the spotlight, waving to cameras and invoking a personal relationship with the audience.
As another royal wedding looms on royal fans, they couldn't be happier for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who are set to tie the knot on May 19th at St. George's Chapel in Windsor. Harry, who was once dubbed the world's most eligible bachelor seems to have finally found his match and it's clear that they share a comfortable and easy relationship.
Part of this may be due to the fact that Meghan was already a global star before she came to be known as Harry's girlfriend. The US actress, who had humble beginnings in NBC's 'Deal or No Deal' rose to fame with her character Rachel Zane in the TV legal drama, 'Suits.' The 36-year-old is used to being in the spotlight, waving to cameras and invoking a personal relationship with the audience. Unlike, Harry's past girlfriends, Cressida Bonas and Chelsy Davy, Meghan shines in the spotlight. And that, in many ways, is a huge blessing for Harry.
According to British journalist Andrew Morton, Harry's royal status proved to be a curse for him until he met Meghan. The author of 'Meghan: A Hollywood Princess' told People that Meghan's celebrity status, in many ways, has made her a self-assured woman. "She is a strong, opinionated woman who has her own ideas about things, and that’s one of the things he loves about her." A royal insider added that Meghan is definitely the one who wears the trousers in their relationship and Harry seems to be fine with it.
It will be interesting to see how their relationship develops after they exchange vows at St. George's Chapel in Windsor in May. The insider added that Harry would never have married "a nice upper-class girl from the [English] counties." Meghan's prior experience with handling a large swathe of fans and her charm has made her a darling, an adjective that was attached to Harry before he met her.
However, Harry is used to being the center of attention. According to Morton, Harry would find a way to make an impression. In his childhood years, he would surprise guests at the Palace by dressing up in an army uniform and pointing a plastic rifle at guests. Morton added, "He used to help the chauffeurs clean the cars and turn hoses on people. He was cheeky."
Now, it certainly feels like Meghan seems to have gained a big fan following after her engagement to Harry and the 33-year-old royal looks happy as he shares official duties with her. On visits, it doesn't seem like Meghan needs Harry's help as she navigates through royal protocol. She seems comfortable in her own skin and this stands in contrast to how a shy, wary Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge interacted with fans as she joined Prince William on her first few royal visits.
