Meghan Markle Is Reportedly ‘Frustrated’: Despite claiming that their decision to step back from working royal life was mutual, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may no longer be on the same page when it comes to leaving the U.K. According to reports, the Duke of Sussex, who turned 39 last month, “wants his old life back,” which has left the Duchess of Sussex, 42, extremely “frustrated” as she seems to be more than happy with their new life in Montecito, California.
Entertainment commentator Mark Boardman told Ok! that Prince Harry misses some of his old life and “longs” to see his estranged friends – one of whom we assume is Jack Mann, whose wedding he skipped out on a few months ago – because he reportedly doesn’t see the friends he has made in the U.S. as his true friends. “London is where all of Harry’s real friends are. Everyone they know in Hollywood, they aren’t his friends,” Boardman said.
Prince Harry Reportedly ‘Longs’ For His Old Life And Old Friendships
“Prince Harry’s social life has notably shifted over the past decade,” Boardman told the pub, before going on to say that being kicked out of Frogmore Cottage and no longer having a U.K. residence hasn’t helped matters either.
“He appears to have distanced himself from his college friends and lacks a permanent U.K. residence,” he continued. “During his visits to London, he typically resides in hotels and avoids public appearances. Undoubtedly, Prince Harry longs for his old friendships.”
However, the former Suits actress, according to Boardman, isn’t thrilled about her husband’s feelings about the U.K., especially as she doesn’t think it will help his image. “Meghan is frustrated that Harry wants his old life back,” he claimed. “Meghan loves Harry, but she wants to bring out the better side in him. And she’s quite clear on the roles that they should take together and they are trying to work better together on projects. People are eager to witness a transformed Harry, rather than a return to his previous partying lifestyle, which could lead to undesirable media attention.”
Speaking of his pre-Meghan lifestyle, Boardman suggested that Prince Harry may want to return to the U.K. from time to time because of his “strong relationships with childhood friends,” although he doesn’t think his wife will be too happy with his suggestion of “a boys’ weekend in London meeting up with some old Eton buddies.” He added: “He’s young at heart but he’s got someone to keep him in check and remind him who he is and what he’s supposed to be doing.”
And according to Boardman, Meghan thinks that Prince Harry is “supposed” to be there for her and their two children – Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet, 2. He said: “Ultimately, Meghan wants Harry to be by her side to support her, to look after the kids and to get his life back on track. And anything going backwards is going to take away from that.”
