"They’re constantly having to defend themselves and they’re grasping for opportunities that don’t exist anymore," he candidly added.

"She will, sort of, walk away," the biographer speculated after their Hollywood empire all but crumbled.

With their future business plans now up in the air following their ongoing rift with Harry's relatives, the father-of-two is left wondering if he made the right decision to leave his life in the U.K. behind for a new one with the American actress in the U.S., according to a source.

"Obviously, Megxit has blown up in their faces. Harry is starting to wonder if they made the right decision leaving England," the insider dished. "He’s even suggested to Meghan that they return to London and the royal family."
