Prince Harry had to be the wild and damaged one in the royal family for a number of reasons, according to the netizens.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been plagued with different issues. As of late, many accused them of competing with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, which prompted some online users to air their thoughts about the issue.

“They needed Harry to be ‘the wild one.’ The ‘damaged’ one. The minute he found a real relationship and set about being a dedicated husband, father, and charity leader, was the moment both he and Meghan became a threat to those rooted in his past,” one online user wrote on Twitter.

Recently, there were reports claiming that Meghan Markle had changed Prince Harry. Prince William’s brother had reportedly become another person following his marriage to Markle.

The same netizen defended the duke and wrote that everybody “has a right to grow up” and change over the course of his or her lifetime. This applies to Prince Harry who struggled emotionally after losing his mom, Princess Diana.

Prior to becoming a husband and a dad, Prince Harry was involved in a number of scandals. In 2012, his nude photos made headlines following a game of strip billiards in Las Vegas. There was also a time when he was slammed for wearing a Nazi uniform at a friend’s fancy dress party.

Another user claimed that many didn’t expect Prince Harry to find a woman as strong as Markle.

“You’re absolutely right! They never expected to see him married to a well grounded, strong, intelligent, poised, headstrong, beautiful woman. Meghan is just what Harry needed to turn his life around. And the tabloids haters hate it,” a different user wrote.

Some speculate that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been attacked because they outshine the other royals. Others believe that it was because he was just a spare.

“EXACTLY..How dare the ‘Spare’ n family outshines the ‘Heir’ n family..” another netizen commented.

Others called Prince William and Middleton to “step up” their game because Prince Harry and Markle “do not need to dim their lights” implying about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s lack of effort in taking up more royal duties.
