Prince Harry Failed To 'Explain' Royal Life To Meghan Markle, But She Could Have Done Her 'Own Homework,' States Royal Author
Pointing fingers. Prince Philip’s Century author Robert Jobson thinks Prince Harry is as much to blame as Meghan Markle is for their fallout with the royal family.
While talking to Page Six, Jobson insisted that Harry failed to prepare Meghan for the "work" that comes along with being a member of the famous brood.
"It’s a combination of Harry and Meghan’s fault, mainly Harry for not explaining it to her properly," he noted.

"He’s not the sharpest guy, but maybe he didn’t want to explain it," he suggested. "It’s hard work being a member of the royal family. People think it’s not but it is. It’s not glamorous and maybe she didn’t fancy that after at all."
That being said, the author stated that Meghan also could have helped herself.
"It’s up to you to do your own homework if you want to marry into a prestigious family," he said.
Jobson claimed the actress failed to take advantages of the resources offered to her, like help from palace aide Samantha Cohen, who was assigned to help the pregnant star learn the dos and dont's of royal life.

In particular, he suggested that learning her ranking within the family would have helped her realize that it was Kate Middleton and Prince William who were meant to be the stars of the show.
"When she saw that she had the little house and William and Kate were the number one couple, she probably didn’t understand that and thought, ‘Well, we can do better than this and start commercializing the royal family,’" he explained. "Well, frankly, that’s not acceptable."
Jobson predicted that there's little chance the public will ever forgive Harry and Meghan for their big moves, as their deals with Netflix and Spotify have rattled the U.K. since their jobs were supposed to be focused in helping others.
"It’s not to do with helping yourself. I’m afraid that’s what’s happened here," he noted. "I blame Harry, really, because he knew the story but he wanted his cake and to eat it and you can’t do that."
