Although Prince Harry and Meghan Markle put on a united front, a royal expert believes the couple will struggle with their marriage and will need Prince William’s help to fix their relationship.

After Prince Harry and Meghan married in 2018, the couple made decisions that defied royal traditions. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have supported one another, but Angela Mollard claimed the couple needs to build a strong bond to save their marriage.

During a conversation on the “Royals” podcast, Mollard advised Harry to seek advice from Prince William when he and Meghan have martial issues.

“If Harry does have any sense, he will rely on William and that relationship will be repaired going forward. He does have tremendous wisdom as a brother, so fingers crossed,” she said.

Mollard claimed Harry and Meghan will face difficult obstacles throughout their relationship.

“I think they have to have a marriage that is stronger than most, and I think that’s going to be very, very hard. The reason I think it’s going to be hard is that neither of them have had a model of a successful relationship,” she explained.

“I don’t like the phrase ‘broken family’, but they haven’t seen people solve their problems. That’s not their model of a mum and dad, solving issues.”

Since Prince Harry and Meghan haven’t seen a genuine romance, Mollard believes they may struggle to build a solid foundation.

“I just think that they will have to work really hard, with a lot of pressures that most people don’t endure, to make sure that they focus on their relationship staying really strong,” she said.

“I know that Harry has had a lot of counseling in the wake of his mother’s death, and I hope they have the support around them to guide them through the next stage.”

Meghan and Prince Harry are expected to head out on their first royal tour with baby, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in the fall.
