Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal wedding on May 19, 2018, at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, has been labeled "too good to be true" after the passage of six years and "numerous controversies."

"We loved them for a while, and then we didn’t much anymore. Too many complaints. But they were in love and that mattered," royal commentator and author Ingrid Seward told The Sun shortly before Sunday, May 19.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will reportedly 'never be allowed to work for the British Crown, ever again.'

Their nuptials occurred on a "pristine, spring day that made it all seem and look like a springtime fairy tale wedding as a prince wed his American princess and duchess," a royal insider working at Kensington Palace at the time shared in 2022. "Goodness me, how quickly it all turned to putrified s---."

They added: "To say she was not cut out for a lifetime of selfless royal service is the understatement of the century for the monarchy."

Some analysts take a more balanced approach to how the reaction to the couple changed after "Megxit" played out in early 2020. That March, shortly before the start of the pandemic lockdowns, the duo performed their final royal engagement for the late Queen Elizabeth II after only 22 months as a working royal pair.

'People like to compare them to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, but they are far worse,' a royal insider shared.

"Until they left and then they didn’t matter anymore," Seward added when discussing Megxit. "They had let the Queen down. They had let the Prince of Wales down; they had let William, then the Duke of Cambridge, down. They had let us down. Harry was stoic. He loved his Californian lifestyle. He loved his wife and children."

She continued: "But he was bitter against everything he had left behind, including his brother, and his father and his sister-in-law, Kate. If success can be judged by money. Harry’s life is a success. But he, as a man, is not a success."

Harry and Meghan's life in America has now passed the four-year mark, and after gaining and then losing their Spotify deal in 2020, the duo are currently working on content as their five-year Netflix deal continues. But despite riches and a loving, devoted fanbase that supports them, the prince is starting to feel the scorn his wife "has felt for years now."

"As a husband and father, he has done brilliantly. And when he and Meghan celebrate their six-year anniversary on Sunday, they will pat themselves on the back," Seward observed. "People said it wouldn’t last, and it has! Harry is no longer feted in his homeland as he once was. If anything, he is pitied. I don’t think Harry can see it. He is happy in his rarefied world with Meghan doing what they do. Long may it last — and I think it will."
