Prince Harry is a ‘lost soul’ who is ‘very influenced and easily led by the people around him’: royal expert

According to royal expert Duncan Larcombe, Prince Harry is used to being “largely the subordinate” in his relationships.

Larcombe told Fox News Digital that the 38-year-old was never the confident “Prince Charming” he seemed to be.

“It was never Harry, quite the contrary,” Larcombe said.

Larcombe, author of the 2017 biography ‘Prince Harry: The Inside Story’, said that over the years he had observed a pattern in the Duke of Sussex’s romantic relationships.


“Harry changed and transformed depending on who he was dating,” the royal expert noted.

He said the royal was “the boyfriend who is ready to meet all the new girlfriend’s friends and go with them.”

Larcombe explained that this tendency was evident in Harry’s relationship with his first love Chelsy Davy, 36, whom he dated on and off for seven years from 2004 to 2011.

Harry first met the Zimbabwean student in South Africa during his gap year when he was 19. The couple reportedly spent the whole summer together and continued to date after Harry returned to the UK.

Larcombe said: “Harry befriended a whole bunch of his pals, basically he turned into Chelsy’s friends.”

The couple’s relationship has been the subject of intense media scrutiny and has often been the subject of tabloids. The couple’s camping trips to Africa grabbed headlines as photographers captured images of the prince sunbathing, paddling in a canoe and sleeping in a tent.

“He has a girlfriend who was from Africa, and before you know it, Harry was walking around barefoot, sitting by a campfire, paddling in the African outback,” Larcombe said.

The royal expert said Harry repeated the same pattern in his next serious relationship with British model and actress Cressida Bonas, 33. Larcombe described Bonas as a “bohemian society girl who dragged Harry to the Glastonbury Rock Festival”.

“With Cressida, it was the bohemian who went to music festivals wearing new and expensive clothes.”

Larcombe added, “And he almost looked like he was dressed by her. It’s really weird. He looked ridiculous.”

He said: “The thing is, he’s really transformed depending on who he’s with, and that’s a worrying sign.”

Larcombe went on to describe how Harry’s malleable nature is again on display in his relationship with his wife Meghan Markle, 41, whom he married in 2018.

Harry and the former “Suits” actress announced they were stepping down as senior government officials and moving to the United States, Markle’s home country, in January 2020.

“Now he lives in Hollywood,” Larcombe noted.

The couple released two photos this week in which they were photographed at a charity event in the UK shortly before the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The timing of the outing raised some eyebrows as it came a day after King Charles, Queen Consort Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton posed for an official royal portrait unveiled by Buckingham Palace.

Many royal watchers speculated that the new photos of Harry and Meghan were meant to be a snub to the royal family

“These photos they released this week show that Harry is not responsible,” Larcombe said.

He continued: “Meghan is the driving force in their relationship, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s a modern thing. But Harry had to give up pretty much everything he had to make it happen. for Meghan.”

Larcombe pointed out that Harry’s general sensitivity to influence from others often led to negative consequences.

“I think Harry is a very lost soul and potentially was before his mother died,” he said.

“Harry is a great guy, but he’s been very vulnerable to influences. Look at how influences have affected Prince Harry’s life.”

He continued, “I’ll make a quick list. When he was in his final year at his high school, he walks in with a crowd of people doing drugs and Harry gets caught. When he goes with his friends to a fancy dress party , he wears a Nazi outfit and calls himself.”


“When he goes to celebrate the end of Sandhurst, he gets dragged to a strip club, he is discovered, then when he goes to Las Vegas, he becomes a stripper himself and Harry is discovered.”

“It’s all a result of influences, bad influences, in his life because he’s someone who’s susceptible to being very influenced and easily led by the people around him. And I don’t see how someone might object.

“That would be King Charles’ opinion of his own son,” Larcombe added.

Larcombe has expressed his doubts that Harry has reached a point where he is making his own decisions about his life. He said there are signs that Markle has influence over the prince’s choices.

“Maybe we can believe that Harry is his own man. Now he’s in charge. It doesn’t look like it,” he said. “It feels like another example of how Harry has tried to transform into what he believes to be the view of normal as someone he dates.”

He continued: “It’s normal, for Harry, not to have his father in his life because Meghan doesn’t have him. It’s normal for Harry to go on tour for business and try to get the next one. book or TV deal because Meghan does it. Harry lives his life as normal because it’s normal for Meghan.”

“I don’t see any longevity in that. Something’s got to give,” Larcombe concluded.
