Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's Friend Opens Up About How They Are Doing Nearly A Year After Stepping Down as Senior Royals

A close friend of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is speaking out.

Tom Bradby, a journalist who was on the South Africa tour with the Sussexes, opened up in an upcoming appearance on ITV’s Love Your Weekend with Alan Titchmarsh and revealed how Meghan and Harry are navigating life following their exit as senior royals from the British Royal Family.

“I think they are feeling better, yes…So are they unhappy? No, I think they are content, the things they are doing they are quite excited by,” Tom shared about Meghan and Harry‘s mindset since relocating to California.

However, Tom adds, he thinks Harry is still “heartbroken by the situation with his family, you don’t necessarily need to have knowledge to know that, but I think it is true.”

Tom also spoke about the relationship between Harry and his older brother, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.

“The situation with the family clearly isn’t ideal and it has been a very difficult year for them all,” he shared. “But are they unhappy out there? No, I don’t think that’s right, I think they are pretty happy actually, but I think they wrestle with their position in life, I think they all do. I think William does too, I don’t think he finds it easy.”

Another royal expert weighed in on the brothers’ relationship over the holiday season.

Tom continued, “There are still a lot of hurt feelings on all sides and it’s very difficult…I think the public desperately wants them to be okay and everyone to be happy and clearly that hasn’t been the situation over the past year. It is not a very easy or comfortable situation, I don’t think it was ever going to be an easy or comfortable situation.”

He concludes, “You have got to remember this isn’t just a family, it’s a firm. They are in the business of public service on a very elevated, exposed platform and to some extent, they are all locked in it together. And that creates lots of tensions that people perhaps do see relatively clearly from the outside, but at the same time they are trying to be a family and I am always acutely conscious of that and how complicated and frankly difficult it is.”

If you missed it, one of Harry‘s celebrity neighbors revealed there’s something very different with him now. See what it is here!
