Harry and Meghan Markle 'far from happy' and on 'warpath' against royals, reunion with William at risk: Expert
Duncan Larcombe, author of 'Prince Harry: The Inside Story,' said: 'I don't think he [Harry] or Meghan are happy. Content people don't create arguments and criticize people'
The author of 'Prince Harry: The Inside Story', Duncan Larcombe believes Prince Harry is not "content" in the US. Larcombe is citing interviews by the Duke of Sussex as a sign of how Harry is "far from happy" since he is creating arguments and criticizing people instead of finding ways to "make amends."
His views were expressed after actor Dax Shepard interviewed Harry, the Duke of Sussex, on his podcast on May 13 in which he spoke about his father's parenting in some depth and also compared his former royal life as being a cross between the film 'The Truman Show' and "a zoo". He also revealed that he was ready to reveal everything that he had felt about his mother Princess Diana's death and his relationship with his father in a new mental health documentary that is set to release on Friday, May 21, on Apple.
Larcombe, as a result, said that he believed Prince Harry sounded like he was "desperately trying to convince himself he's found happiness". Speaking to Closer Magazine, the royal expert said "I believe that, despite Harry's insistence that he's happy, he's far from it. I don't think he or Meghan are happy. Content people don't create arguments and criticize people - content people want to make amends."
Larcombe also did not think Harry was someone who should "preach" about mental health because he was "clearly in the very midst" of his own journey and "causing pain to his own family". He added that in his opinion the Duke's anger and sadness stemmed from the trauma that he incurred when his mother Princess Diana died at the age of 1997. He said that until Prince Harry worked through that trauma, he will never be "truly happy".
The author further revealed, "[Harry] has now made the royals and the institution his enemies because of that - he's on the warpath." He added, "I think what we see and hear from these interviews is a man who is desperately trying to convince himself that he has found happiness, and he has been through it all and reached the other side - that he's finally free. I don't think that's the case. He and Meghan aren't happy or free. I don't think his move to LA has solved anything."
Calling Prince Harry's recent opinion about the First Amendment "bonkers," he said the Duke was burning bridges "left, right and centre," even among those Americans and Brits who were sympathetic to the Sussex royals.
An insider quoted by the Dailymail said that Prince Harry's latest claims have put his upcoming reunion with 'horrified' Prince William in July at risk. They were supposed to reunite for an event to honor their late mother. The insider said, "Prince William is, of course, saddened by the recent developments because of the way Prince Harry is putting such deeply personal pain into the public domain, invading all the family's privacy."
The source also added that his recent claims were "very much against the strategy he agreed with William following the 20th anniversary of Diana's death. That's going to increase tensions between William and Harry, which sadly are already high."
