Prince Harry’s relationship with American actress Meghan Markle is predicted to last less than ten years, according to royal expert Ashley Pearson. Since the fallout from Megxit, the Duchess of Sussex has been viewed as a “villain” by royal fans who do not wish to see the Duke as a “betrayer”.
Speaking to the Channel 5 documentary ‘Meghan at 40’, Ashley Pearsons said: “There’s very little question in my mind that Meghan will be viewed as a villain.
“What you have to understand is that, the British public really loves Harry, they don’t want to see Harry as a betrayer.
“It’s far easier to blame this other woman who is a foreigner but a lot of people believe that Harry will still come back.
“A lot of people in the UK believe that Meghan and Harry will not be together in ten years and Harry will make his way back home.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018.
They had become engaged following a 16-month courtship after intially meeting on a blind date.
After less than two years as working royals, they announced in January 2020 that they would be withdrawing from their roles as senior working royals.
Their decision caused a royal crisis, as senior palace aides began to negotiate a way for the couple to become financially independent and renounce their royal patronages.
Prince Harry also discussed his rift with Prince Charles and Prince William, saying he felt “really let down” by his father.
He said that he and Prince William were “on different paths” and characterised their relationship as “space”.
Prince Harry recently announced his intention to release his memoirs, which will detail an “accurate and wholly truthful” account of his life as a Royal Family member. This announcement was said to have ‘shocked’ his royal relatives.
Whilst the Duke of Sussex has returned twice to the UK in recent months, for the funeral of Prince Philip and Diana’s statue unveiling, the relationship between the couple and the family remains strained.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex currently reside in California with their two young children. The family will be celebrating Meghan Markle’s 40th birthday on August 4.
