MEGHAN MARKLE was praised for being part of Prince Harry’s redemption despite the eventual “tragedy” with the Royal Family.
Royal commentator Robert Lacey argued that in his youth, Prince Harry struggled to maintain a good reputation. While speaking on Sky News, Mr Lacey recounted the many ways Prince Harry regained good favour with the public as he matured. He insisted that meeting and marrying Meghan Markle was one the climax of his reputation comeback.
However, he noted it was a great shame the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were unable to happily maintain their place in the Royal Family.
The Sky News host said: “Prince Harry had turned things around though, in terms of his reputation.
“He was hugely well regarded for his military career, the work he had done for veterans.
“When he met and married Meghan Markle there was a real hope that this young couple could help the future of the monarchy and modernising and yet it all went wrong.”
