Prince Harry ‘is a much less intelligent character’ than Meghan Markle and ‘goes along with whatever she says’ because he’s ‘desperate to please his wife’, according to Lady Colin Campbell.
The Jamaican-born British writer, 70, who penned the 1992 best-selling biography, Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody Knows, made the sensational claims to new! magazine while publicising her new book Meghan and Harry: The Real Story.
She said that the Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 38, who are currently living with their son Archie, one, in LA, ‘have a very strong relationship’ but that Meghan wears the trousers because her husband is ‘besotted with her’.
‘In my opinion, Harry is a much less intelligent character than Meghan is,’ the author said from her home at Castle Goring, Worthing in Sussex.
‘And I think he’s so desperate to please her and go along with whatever she says, no matter how ill-conceived it is. He is that besotted with her.’
Lady Colin, who was married to Lord Colin Campbell for one year in 1974 before retaining the title, added that while Meghan and Harry ‘have a very strong relationship, the Duchess is in control.
‘She wears the trousers and is as dominating, charming and captivating a personality as Princess Diana was in her marriage,’ the author claimed.
Lady Colin also told the publication that she believes Meghan’s ambition has ‘always’ been to outshine Diana.
But the socialite believes the former American actress has misread the situation and that her pursuit of fame in LA ‘won’t “take off” in the way she thinks she will’.
Lady Colin recently claimed she believes Meghan has political aspirations and hopes to one day run for president.
The author has given a number of interviews about the couple in recent weeks, including one with The Sunday Times in which she said Meghan has ‘squandered’ the ‘most wonderful opportunity’ by leaving the royal family.
She also claimed the signs Meghan would ‘not adjust’ well to life as a royal were apparent shortly after her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018.
Lady Colin said she believes the Sussexes moving to the US is part of the plan to make the shift into the political sphere.
‘I know the Duchess of Sussex has political ambitions and I’ve been told that one day she wants to run for President,’ Lady Colin claimed.
‘I think everything she is doing, leaving the royal family and moving back to California is part of her plan and she has taken Harry along with her.’
