Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been dubbed as trailblazers for the future monarchy by Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal commentator.

While speaking with Express, Fitzwilliams noted how Prince Harry has done a fantastic job at continuing to portray the positive image of the royal family. And he wouldn’t have been able to do this without Markle by his side.

Throughout the past year, Prince Harry and Markle have been involved in a number of causes and charities. They have also participated in a handful of events on behalf of the British clan.

“For Harry, it has been a year of no regrets. We have seen him meet the love of his life and achieve the happiness which has so often eluded him as he has revealed in interviews leading up to the 20th anniversary of the death of Diana,” he said.

Fitzwilliams also said that Prince Harry and Markle are the perfect complements to Prince William and Kate Middleton.

“They are neighbors in Kensington Palace of course, but in their Royal Foundation, they can all champion good causes with the unique access that being a senior member of the world’s most influential royal family brings. Everyone knows William will one day be King and Harry is sixth in line to the throne, but this allows him and Meghan to champion causes more informally, which widens the monarchy’s appeal,” he added.

Markle, who has hit the ground running with her charitable work, was also named as one of Time’s 100 most influential people of 2018. These are just some of the ways in which she and Prince Harry have become trailblazers for the future monarchy.

In related news, Prince Harry celebrated his 34th birthday on Sept. 15 with Markle. The Duchess of Sussex may have planned something special for her husband. Prince Harry and Markle are currently in London with the other members of the royal family. Next month, they will head to Australia for their first overseas tour.
