PRINCE Harry has gone from being a “warrior prince” to spouting sentimental “hippie talk” — and it’s because of Meghan, claims a royal biographer.
Duncan Larcombe, author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, told Fabulous Digital the prince has become “right on” and givs “stomach-churning” speeches.
Discussing the speech the prince gave for WE Day on Wednesday, he said: “The warrior prince’s transition to what we heard this week which was just stomach-churning mumbo jumbo really – described as hippie talk, and new age – it’s just so far away from how I knew him.”
He added: “The signs are that she is having a fundamental influence on him… the speech he gave wouldn’t have looked out of place in some kind of fundraising dinner in Hollywood.
“Who else could have possibly influenced Harry to say that?
“I don’t think any of his girlfriends have been as strong-willed as Meghan is”
“None of his old Etonian mates would speak in those terms, they wouldn’t even recognise him in that speech, it’s very different from his military background.
“It’s new age and right on, ‘I believe the children are the future’, nonsense really.”
The royal biographer added that despite his laddish public persona, the prince has always being “under the thumb” in his relationships.
“There’s an interesting dynamic with Harry because while he was branded the world’s most eligible bachelor with the gift of the gab, actually whenever he’s had a girlfriend he’s been very very much under the thumb,” he said.
“I don’t think any of his girlfriends have been as strong-willed as Meghan is.”
Prince Harry was also forced to step-in when Meghan Markle was the subject of a torrent of racial abuse when their relationship first become public.
The royals famously avoid commenting on matters about their private lives.But Harry stepped-in to condemn the “wave of abuse and harassment” directed at his future wife.
“What we saw with Meghan is that some of the backlash has put Harry in this very aggressive and defensive position right from the get go,” Larcombe aded.
“I see no signs of that easing, if anything it’s getting worse.”
But while Harry may have become more socially conscientious after his wife’s influence, Larcombe admits the prince is “happier than he’s ever been”
He added: “I think Harry for a long time has been a bit of a lost soul, he’s wanted a wife, he’s wanted a soul mate and he’s wanted children so Harry is now in many ways happier than he’s ever been.”
