Recent rumours have ignited conversations across both sides of the Atlantic, suggesting that Prince Harry, 39, might be experiencing bouts of nostalgia for his U.K. roots and longing for his "old life" among his erstwhile friends.

This, paired with the soaring trajectory of Meghan Markle’s career in the U.S., has led to speculations about the Duke of Suss*x feeling somewhat overshadowed by his wife's rising star. The Duchess of Suss8x, a 42-year-old former star of the hit series "Suits", has seemingly adapted seamlessly to her Californian life.

Her return to the limelight in America has ushered in an influx of job offers and opportunities, possibly seeing her return to acting or exploring fresh solo endeavours. Contrastingly, Prince Harry's calendar appears to be less packed with individual projects.

Insiders whisper that this disparity might create tensions within their marital life, which resonates with some experts.

Prince Harry's Emotional Struggle Highlighted

Sally Baker, a renowned relationship expert and therapist, recently described the situation in a chat with The Mirror.

She pointed out the potential emotional complexities Harry might be facing in light of Meghan's escalating success. "Witnessing Meghan's meteoric rise in popularity and professional achievements, it's conceivable that Harry may feel eclipsed and find it challenging to navigate his feelings," she shared.

Baker elaborated, "The shifting dynamics, especially when a partner's career suddenly takes off, can introduce feelings of insecurity or envy in the other. However, with introspection and growth, it's possible to embrace these changes positively." As the world watches with bated breath, it remains to be seen how the royal couple will negotiate this latest chapter of their lives, melding personal aspirations with their joint endeavours. One thing is sure: Their journey, filled with ups and downs, continues to captivate audiences worldwide.
