MEGHAN MARKLE is “miserable” and “stressed” in her new role in the Royal Family and her husband Prince Harry feels responsible, it has been claimed.
Meghan is thought to be struggling due to ongoing media reports of a feud with the Duchess of Cambridge. A source close to the Duchess of Sussex told US Weekly that Meghan is “definitely bothered by all the reports and speculation” and that she has trouble ignoring the negative press. Since the 37-year-old American actress became a Royal in May, she has been dogged by rumours of a rift between her and Prince William’s wife, Kate.
She was also bothered by an article in Vanity Fair that portrays her as a social climber.
A Royal insider said: “Meghan has so much on her plate, between being pregnant and dealing with the public backlash, and she’s finding the whole situation incredibly stressful.”
Meghan’s feelings are in turn affecting Harry, who “feels responsible for Meghan being so miserable”.
These comments come after reports Prince Harry has been “frustrated” about not being able to protect his wife from the downsides of being a Royal.
A source previously said: “Keeping her away from the negativity and harm has been hard for him.
“It’s been his purpose in their relationship to keep her away from negativity.”
Meghan is thought not to read tabloid news, but is aware of the reports emerging about her.
She finds not being able to respond to claims “frustrating” and feels she has “no voice”.
The source said: “She’s always relied on her own voice to stand up for others, and for herself.
“So not being able to say anything is a debilitating feeling.”
Despite the bombardment, Meghan has kept smiling while on official outings with her husband.
She was even pictured chatting happily with the Duchess of Cambridge when the Royal Family attended a church service on Christmas Day.
