Meghan Markle and Prince Harry met in London through a common friend six years ago. After going out on a date, the couple immediately planned the second time that they would meet. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex enjoyed the first six months of their relationship in private until it was leaked by the British tabloids.
Over a year later, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement. And in 2018, they tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. Even though the couple seemed like a match made in heaven at the time, not everyone was on board with them tying the knot shortly after they met.
It was previously revealed that Prince Harry and Prince William had a falling out after the latter voiced his concerns about his younger brother’s relationship with Markle. The Duke of Cambridge didn’t think it was right for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to tie the knot because they barely knew each other.
Meghan Markle’s Friend Warned Her Against Dating Prince Harry
Now, it has been confirmed that someone from Markle’s side also had reservations regarding her relationship with Prince Harry. And this was detailed in Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s book, Finding Freedom.
“Ever since the couple’s trip to Africa, their romance had been on a fast track. Technically the getaway was just their third date but by then, they were each already dancing around the idea that this just may be a forever thing. For Meghan, she was all in. Nothing could get her to slow down, not even a friend who cautioned her about getting involved with Harry. ‘They hate royal wives and girlfriends. They will come after you. Look at Diana,’” Markle’s friend told the authors (via Express).
Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s Marriage Could End Up Like Prince Charles, Princess Diana’s?
Princess Diana had a complicated relationship with the royal family. For starters, Prince Charles was already in love with Camilla Parker Bowles when he met Princess Diana. The royal family gave the Prince and Princess of Wales their blessing to wed because Princess Diana seemed like the perfect bride for Prince Charles.
But since they barely knew each other, the exes’ relationship struggled throughout the years that they were together. And in the end, Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage ended in divorce.
Meghan Markle And Kate Middleton Had Similar Fates
In the same way, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s relationship also struggled at the beginning. After all, the royal family had some reservations about the Duchess of Cambridge because she didn’t have proper work training.
Middleton also earned some rude nicknames from the tabloids, especially before she and Prince William tied the knot. But over the years, the mom of three managed to turn things around. And she is now one of the most popular members of the royal family.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about Markle. Less than two years after her wedding to Prince Harry, the couple decided to quit their royal duties. They are now residing in Los Angeles, but even if they are miles away from the royal family, tabloids continue to criticize their every move.
