Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's dramatic exit from the royal family restructured the monarchy, but it also brought two senior members closer together. Royal expert Christopher Andersen claimed the Sussexes' Megxit scandal and damaging accusations helped Prince William and King Charles' relationship.
"They’ve had to put up this united front against Harry and Meghan," Andersen told a publication. "They’ve been insulted by members of their own family. It’s been quite the ordeal for them, and I think that they kind of circled the wagon, so to speak. And they’ve come out of that with a stronger bond."
"Trying to carve out this new life for them in Hollywood, I suppose they expected the honeymoon to go on," Andersen explained.
"And as time passed, more and more of their allies and friends and admirers have just fallen away because they see this as a kind of a narcissistic romp through Montecito," he added. "They’re not getting the kind of support now that they had when they arrived."
"It’s a Hollywood marriage with the whole tensions of royalty thrown in. Frankly, people on that level, it’s very hard to imagine how they keep their sanity because [there’s] no privacy, none whatsoever," Andersen shared. "And people are constantly harping about them. The best thing they can do is ignore everything."
Andersen spoke to Us Weekly.
