Marriages are stressful even under the best
of circumstances. But when you have millions of people watching your every
move, criticizing your actions at every turn, those strained
feelings will increase exponentially. And that’s exactly what some fans
fear is happening with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
On the outside, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex appear happier
than ever. With a new baby at home, a stunning new home, and all the wealth and
power in the world, Harry and Meghan have more than their fair share of
advantages. But despite it all, these two are under an enormous amount
of pressure we can’t even begin to imagine.
That’s why their most loyal fans are worrying about how all
the criticism could be negatively affecting their marriage.
Harry and Meghan rushed into marriage
Prince Harry met Meghan Markle in the summer of 2016 after
the pair was set up on a blind date. Their shockingly short courtship — the two
went from dating to engaged to married in less
than two years — has been an endless source of contention amongst both
friends and family members.
Some believe these two hurried to get married because they
were deeply in love. Others insist that their ages played a factor. But either
way, their sprint down the altar (at least compared to other royals) has caused
a lot of drama in the family.
One other problem with getting married so quickly was that Meghan
Markle didn’t have as much time to get
used to being a royal under the constant glare of the spotlight. Kate Middleton
had a very clear picture of what she was getting into before she married Prince
William. But for Meghan? It wasn’t so obvious.
Meghan Markle might have spurred a feud between the brothers
Speaking of rushing into marriage, another reason why things
are troublesome for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle right now is she may have
come between one of the strongest relationships in the royal family — the bond
Prince William and Prince Harry were always close growing
up, especially following the tragic death of their mother Princess Diana. But
when the Duke of Cambridge warned Harry not to rush into marriage with the
woman he loved, the lovestruck younger brother took
it badly. That’s allegedly the thing that started this whole royal feud we
keep hearing about.
If Meghan Markle did come between Harry and William, however
indirectly, it could be making the Duke of Sussex feel upset about that missing
bond in his life.
Signs of stress in their marriage are obvious
No one can be perfect all the time, and Prince Harry and
Meghan Markle are proving that now. They’ve been called out a couple of times
for having small, dramatic
moments in public.
There was the time at the queen’s birthday celebration when Prince Harry had to turn his wife to “Turn around” and “Look” as she appeared to fight back tears. Or when the Sussexes attended an MLB game and Prince Harry appeared to ignore his wife speaking to him.
Like any marriage, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle most
likely have good days and bad days. The only difference is that their small
arguments look much worse than they really are, especially broadcast across an
Though fans are fearful that the pressure could be
negatively affecting this couple, it seems highly unlikely that it would be
enough to split them up. They have their love for each other, the love for
their child, and the shared goal of making the world a better place.
