"Having her mother come in would be quite helpful, and Harry gets on with his mother-in-law very well," royal author Angela Levin told an outlet.
Harry's former biographer added, "It's been a long time for Meghan's new PR people to be able to tie up some big deal because she'll only take a deal where she's in charge, and it's very important," she observed when highlighting how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be spending a lot of time in Los Angeles this year. But the Duke doesn't seem to have a say in much of anything these days, even though it is also his home."
"He's been outnumbered since he met Meghan and her mother. He's given in; he walks behind them," Levin shared.
This comes amid Meghan telling Variety in November 2023 at the publication's "Power of Women" event that both she and Harry are "very excited" about upcoming Netflix projects.
"Things that make people feel – I was going say 'good,' but it’s more than that — things that make people feel something, right? And feel a sense of community. But we have so many exciting things on the slate. I can’t wait until we can announce them, but I’m just really proud of what we’re creating. My husband is loving it, too. It’s really fun," she spilled while being interviewed on the red carpet.
Meghan is also still signed to WME with Ari Emanuel backing her — but this partnership has produced nothing but radio silence ever since she inked the partnership in April 2023. As for the fifth in line to the British throne, he has not done much career-wise since his documentary, Heart of Invictus, flopped on Netflix last August. This lack of focus and authority also seems to be the case in his homelife as well.
"He has no power. You don't feel that he's making decisions. The decisions come from Meghan. Maybe Meghan discusses them with her mother, or maybe she just tells her mother, but Harry has shrunk in every single way," Levin explained. "She writes his speeches; she tells him what to do. Pushing him here and there, moving him to different places, like you might do with a child."
But 2024 may not turn out to be an easy road to success for the duo, and a lot of this stems from Spotify "embarrassingly" firing the pair last June.
"Of course, they’ve lost their big Spotify contract — one of the big contracts that was clearly going to be their basis for fame," Bower told an outlet last summer. "The 'grifters' line has tarnished them for life."
