Although the pair have split from working with Prince William and Kate Middleton in an official capacity, amid rumours of a personal falling-out between the brothers, one royal expert claims that Prince Harry needs to turn to his brother to weather the strain of being in the public eye.
Podcast “Royals”, from Australian magazine New Idea, heard from royal expert Angela Mollard in an episode that first aired in July.
Ms Mollard said: “I think I’m being realistic in saying it’s hard enough for ordinary people to sustain marriages.
“In the public eye, as [Harry and Meghan] are, and under such intense scrutiny – I really, really hope that they have the ballast and the support there.”
She continued: “If Harry does have any sense, he will rely on William and that relationship will be repaired going forward.
“He does have tremendous wisdom as a brother, so fingers crossed.”
Ms Mollard added: “They do have Charles and Camilla, Charles is incredibly fond of Meghan.
“They do have Doria, who is wonderfully sensible.”

“Also, social media has given them the opportunity to disseminate information when and how they want.
“Now, I think that what’s interesting is that Kate, in producing pictures of her children herself, choosing them, owning and managing that image – I think there’s a lot to be learned from that.”
Ms Mollard also gave her opinion that, as the Duke and Duchess enter their fourth year of being together, they face a critical time for new relationships.
She said: “Three years is generally understood by relationship psychologists and counsellors to be the point where you move out of the limerence phase.”
She explained: “Limerence is deeper than infatuation, but it’s the beginning of a relationship where it’s all butterflies and you laugh together all the time and you’re very amenable.
“Three years is around the stage where reality starts to kick in.”
