Prince Harry heartbreak: How Duke’s behaviour has ‘soured’ in recent years

PRINCE HARRY’s behaviour has “completely soured” in recent years, according to a former royal photographer.

Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, have been living in Los Angeles, with their one-year-old son Archie since they stepped down as senior Royals on March 31. The couple announced their decision to step down in January this year, citing their wish to pursue financial freedom amid an uncomfortable living experience for the Duchess in Britain, as their reason for leaving. Now, former royal photographer Arthur Edwards has lifted the lid on the Royal couple. 

Mr Edwards, has claimed that Prince Harry, 35, “completely soured” following his union with the Duchess of Sussex, 38. 

Speaking on TalkRadio, Mr Edwards said: “Unfortunately for the last couple of years, he [Prince Harry] has gone completely sour.”

Mr Edwards, who has been photographing the Duke of Sussex since his birth in 1984, noticed a change in his behaviour. 

“He didn’t talk to me for a year. I’ve been photographing him since he was born, and it was down to her.”

The photographer also opened up on Meghan and Harry’s refurbishing of Frogmore Cottage, and how he feels they had “no intention” of living in the mansion. 

Mr Edwards explained: “All that use refurbishment at Frogmore and the money that they spent on that, she had no intention of staying here.”

The former Royal photographer also said the media requested to organise a meeting with the Duchess on three different occasions, all of which never happened. 

He added: “I think the moment she married Harry it was ‘right, let’s get out of here as quick as we can. I mean, it was ridiculous.”

The royal couple headed to Los Angeles at the start of the coronavirus pandemic, where they have been staying ever since. 

They are believed to be staying with their son, Archie, at Tyler Perry’s $18million Beverly Hills mansion. 

But the photographer went on to claim that the way in which Meghan changed clothes and went straight to Heathrow Airport to fly to LA suggests she “had no intention of staying in the UK”.

He added: “It’s not in her plans, and she is dragging Harry along and unfortunately, he has gone along with it.”

It comes as the couple have been widely criticised for their comments about the Commonwealth countries in recent weeks. 

As part of a discussion on justice and equal rights, Prince Harry said the Commonwealth – of with the Queen is head – needs to follow others who have “acknowledged the past” and are trying to “right their wrongs”. 

Mr Edwards said Harry’s criticism of the one thing the monarch “cherishes above all things” was an “insult”. 

Writing in the Sun, Mr Edwards said: “Prince Harry is entitled to his views. But in criticising the Commonwealth – the organisation closes to his grandmother’s heart – he has simply lost the plot.”

He said that the Duke knows “just how important the Commonwealth is” to the Queen, as does Meghan, whose wedding veil was embroidered with the flower of every Commonwealth nation. 

“To criticise the one thing the Queen cherishes above all things, which is preserving the Commonwealth, is an insult to her – no matter what the palace may say officially”, Mr Edwards continued.

In his video call, Prince Harry said: “When you look across the Commonwealth, there is no way we can move forward unless we acknowledge the past. 

“So many people have done such an incredible job of acknowledging the past and trying to right these wrongs, but I think we all acknowledge there is so much more still to do.”
