Prince Harry ‘already ready to leave Royal Family before Meghan Markle joined’

Prince Harry was itching to quit the Royal Family long before he married Meghan Markle and "Megxit" happened, according to a royal commentator.

In the latest episode of Pod Save the Queen (February 25) podcast host Ann Gripper discussed the move with Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers.

He said: "I don't think she's (Meghan) a troublemaker. Harry was always ready to leave and he got an ally who said 'What are you doing here?'

"If he was unhappy, then sure, your happiness is everything.

"If you're unhappy, what is the point? If you're unhappy in your job, leave your job. If you're unhappy in your relationship, leave your relationship."

This echoes the opinion of royal broadcaster Jennie Bond, who previously said in the Channel 5 documentary Diana: A Mother's Love that Prince Harry takes after his mum and can't be repressed.

She said: "Diana always said that from a very early age there was a very rebellious streak in her, very independent, very feminist.

"There are parallels obviously between the way Diana decided that the media attention way of life was just too much for her and the way Harry and Meghan have chosen to quit as senior members of the royal family, even more dramatic.

"And I think that Harry is replicating his mother's footsteps there in saying that, 'It isn’t a way of life for me'".

Meanwhile, royal expert Marlene Koenig told express.co.uk Prince Harry could no longer live in "a shadow" and had been trying to find a way to create his own path for some time – although it didn't help Meghan was having such a tough time in the UK.

She said: "I do think he has wanted out. Yes, the press coverage of his wife was horrible.

"There were ways that it could have been handled better.

"But I think he himself can't live in a shadow."
