The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have officially been married for one year, welcoming their first child Archie-Harrison Mountbatten Windsor less than two weeks ago. And, according to a royal expert, Meghan has spent enough time as a royal to realise her life is far from the “fairytale” she may have imagined before tying the knot with Prince Harry on May 19 2018. Duncan Larcombe, author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story wrote in The Sun Online: “The whirlwind romance that catapulted Meghan to a level of stardom beyond her wildest dreams must have been as bewildering as it was overwhelming. “But now the reality of what it means to be a royal has begun to sink in, Meghan will have realised that this is no fairy tale.”

Meghan’s attended a solo engagement with the Queen in July 2018, a prestigious honour that was never bestowed upon Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, until earlier this year.
Her Majesty even invited Meghan to stay with her on the royal train for their day-long visit to Cheshire, England.
Despite the past 12 months have been overall positive for the Duchess, she also faced many “negatives” particularly from her estranged father, Thomas Markle Snr, scathing attacks from her half-sister Samantha Markle, and the rumoured feud between her and her sister-in-law, Kate.
“The fall-out from her father’s ‘betrayal’ the week before the wedding continues to haunt Meghan and sees no sign of going away.”
The Duchess was said to have left Kate in tears during her wedding fitting for Princess Charlotte, and has also been branded “Duchess difficult” by Buckingham Palace staff, according to sources.
Meghan has also faced staggering levels of online abuse, as trolls lashed out at her with vile and racist comments that even forced Kensington Palace to step in with a statement.
Mr Larcombe said: “Whatever the truth behind the falling out between the Sussex and Cambridge clans, it is damaging for Meghan to be singled out as a fly in the Royal chardonnay.
“In many ways these unchallenged stories only fuelled those whose racist disposition empowered them to troll Meghan with the most vile insults on social media.
“One year into their marriage, Harry and Meghan should be proud of how things have gone so far.
“But they need to remember being popular is not an entitlement, it has to be maintained.
“But for now, they remain the golden couple who look set to survive whatever is thrown at them.”
