Ex-royal bodyguard Ken Wharfe has claimed Prince Harry was ‘forced out’ of the Royal Family after he moved to the USA with wife Meghan Markle.
The former royal protection officer worked for 36-year-old Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, from 1987 to 1994, and was close to the late Princess at a time when her marriage to Prince Charles was crumbling.
Ken thinks Harry will “live to regret” moving to the USA and picking a ‘normal life’ over that which he experienced within the Royal family.
He suggests the current bubble of projects and interview opportunities that Harry and 38-year-old Meghan are enjoying could burst, leaving the pair with nowhere to turn.
He told New Idea magazine: “Now trapped in La La land, what happens when the Hollywood trappings run dry?”
He somewhat cuttingly added:
“Will the palace welcome back their Prince? – of course – with or without his wife.”
Ken speculates that Harry wouldn’t have wanted to quit royal life when he moved out of the UK with his wife and young son, but had his hand forced.
It is suggested Harry and Meghan were shown the door in terms of having official royal titles when The Queen refused to grant them a hybrid arrangement.
“His choices were limited, and there was that fear of losing his new bride… in my opinion he decided to jump! And it’s a jump I feel he will come to regret.”
Mirror has contacted a spokesperson of Prince Harry for comment.
