The Duke and Duchess of Sussex married in 2018 but the couple shocked the world last year when they announced they were stepping down as senior members of the Royal Family. But now a royal author has claimed Meghan changed Harry for the better.
Sean Smith, author of Meghan Misunderstood, said Harry’s partnership with the Suits actress turned him into a better man.
He told the Daily Star: “Prince Harry is the man who served in two tours of duty in Afghanistan and it really was the making of him.
“His service career turned the boy into a man and his partnership with Meghan Markle has turned him into a better man.”
The author went on to say how the public believe the Firm is relatively dull but argued Meghan is not a “dull person”.
He added since Meghan stepped away from the Firm, there is something missing which the Duchess brought.
He continued: “Historians would have you believe the Royal Family are boring at times, but Meghan Markle is not a dull person, she has a great deal of charisma that is now sadly missing in the Royal Family.
“This is a woman of substance and that is not how she has been represented and hopefully there is still time for people to realise that.
“I don’t want to knock members of the Royal Family, Prince William, Kate and other members too, but Meghan has a different life experience than them.

The Megxit review was expected to assess whether or not the couple could keep their HRH styles and Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles going forward.
Since stepping away, the couple have held on to their royal status despite no longer serving the crown.
However, their recent activity has angered royal fans who have urged the Queen to remove their titles completely.
Royal Family members are meant to remain politically neutral and Meghan and Harry ruffled feathers ahead of the US election by encouraging Americans to vote.
While some felt Meghan and Harry overstepped the mark, they did not explicitly align themselves with one political party in the lead up to the US vote.
The couple agreed with the Queen that they would not use the word royal in conjunction with their work going forward and wound down their Sussex Royal Foundation following their withdrawal.
Meghan and Harry stepped away in a bid to be financially independent and have since signed lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify.
