They’re going to become first-time parents sometime between late April and early May, but a new report suggests that the happy glow and shimmer of life as newlyweds is soon going to wear off on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

During an appearance on “The Morning Show,” royal commentator Angela Mollard insisted that the earlier period of a relationship where things always seem happy and special, known as a honeymoon period, is likely already over for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, indicating that if it isn’t, the pair would reach the end very soon due to how long they’ve been together as a couple.

“It has to be over,” she said, according to Express UK. “These two in July will have known each other for three years. We know from relationship counselors, as you get into the three-year period of the relationship, it doesn’t so much as get boring but it gets real. The state of being in love and infatuation dissipates after three years. Remains to be seen with these two.”

Mollard also revealed that she thinks the phase could have already come to an end due to the amount of stress the couple, specifically Markle, has faced since their May 2018 wedding, and that she thinks everything going on is eerily mirroring the same traumas Princess Diana faced during her own time as a royal.

“This comes at a time when she’s made massive changes in her life—she's moved countries, she’s given up her job, she’s now pregnant, she doesn’t have her friends around her, she’s got massive unrest within her family,” Mollard said. “There’s so many stress factors it wouldn’t be surprising if she had feelings of misery. Harry apparently feels very guilty about the fact—really, it’s becoming a repeat of what his mum suffered.”

However, while she argued that the stress could be getting to the pair and causing their honeymoon period to come to an end, it is likely that Prince Harry will take action to protect his wife in the way he was unable to protect his mother.

“He couldn’t protect his mum and we know from the early days of the relationship when he made the unprecedented statement ‘please, leave her alone,’ he’s very protective of her,” she said.
