While Prince Harry is believed to have earned a fortune from lucrative deals with Spotify and Netflix, on top of having secured a $14.7 million home in Montecito, California, the Duke of Sussex is “deeply unhappy.”
British news anchor and a family friend Tom Bradby made the comment during his appearance on Alan Titchmarsh's Love Your Weekend, insisting that the stress and ongoing feud with family members have caused Harry a lot of pain — particularly now that he lives across the pond from his relatives.
While the father of one is happy to have relocated to Los Angeles with his wife Meghan Markle and their 1-year-old son Archie, knowing that there’s still tension back in the UK with certain members of the royal family hasn’t made things easy for the couple.
Bradby recalled the first time he noticed how unhappy Harry was, which was when the pair had joined him on their 2019 tour of Africa.
“It was a very psychologically complex project. They were clearly in a difficult position and not feeling great. I realized the extent of that the more I was there," he shared.
“I went thinking I was making a documentary about them resetting themselves in public life and it became increasingly obvious to me the depths of their unhappiness.”
Two years since filming the documentary with the pair and Bradby believes that the bold move to step down from their titles as senior royals certainly wouldn’t have been an easy one for Harry, but it already seemed evident back in 2019 that the couple was planning of an exit strategy.
“Megxit had been a trying and deeply emotional experience for all involved,” he continued.
“I think they are feeling better, yes. I mean there has been a huge amount that has happened over the last year that I can’t talk about and I don’t want to talk about and an awful lot of what has been said is kind of not accurate and not right.”
Harry has adjusted rather well to his new life out in the U.S., but he wishes that things weren’t as frosty with his family back home.
He’s believed to have secured two enormous deals with Netflix and Spotify, which has reportedly earned him and Meghan close to $130 million, yet despite their lucrative offers to front major creative projects, some members of the royal family don’t think much of Harry’s recent decisions.
Earlier this week, it was claimed that Prince William will take issue with his brother if he continues using their mother Princess Diana’s legacy to advance his career in Hollywood after Harry had penned a touching letter to the late princess when he and Meghan launched their Archewell foundation site in December.
