Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s marriage has some similarities with the union of Prince Charles and Princess Diana from decades ago. As such, royal fans are worried that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s relationship would also end up in a divorce.

On the online forum site Quora, royal fan Melissa Marshall listed down all of the similarities between the couples’ marriages. She said that Prince Harry and Prince Charles married their wives after only knowing them for less than two years.

Marshall also said that both Markle and Princess Diana came from dysfunctional families, and their parents were also divorced. As such, these kinds of things may have a direct impact on their respective marriages.

But despite the similarities, the royal fan said that it is not guaranteed that the Duke of Sussex would cheat on his wife just because his dad cheated on his mom. Marshall said that it is only those people who are not fans of the royal couple who may think like this.

“I’m skeptical on the question of adultery. I think divorce is more likely than adultery for this couple if it occurs as both came from divorced households growing up. It’s also possible that Prince Harry and Meghan may end up being like Charles and Camilla— a stable, successful marriage… We simply don’t know at this point in time,” the royal fan said.

Royal fan Alec Cawley said that there is one major difference between Markle and Princess Diana. He said that Markle was already quite old when she met and wed Prince Harry. Princess Diana, on the other hand, wasn’t very mature to handle his marriage to Prince Charles.

Several other royal fans also said that they hope Prince Harry and Markle’s marriage won’t end in the same way that Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage ended. After all, the couple does seem as though they are in love and happy to be with each other.
