Prince William was worried about Prince Harry’s ‘mental fragility' during Meghan Markle romance, according to a royal biographer.
Tina Brown, The former Vanity Fair editor, claimed that the Duke of Cambridge didn’t believe the former American actress could handle the pressures of royal life.
William was concerned about Prince Harry’s relationship with Meghan Markle, and it wasn’t just because he felt they were moving at lightning speed, Brown wrote her new book about the royals titled "The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor – the Truth and the Turmoil."
"A person close to the Duke of Cambridge told me that William thought she should have more time to build up a life in the U.K. and make friends who didn’t always have to be brought in confidence to the palace," Brown wrote.
"It had been hard enough for Kate [Middleton], but Meghan was a glamorous actress who would be the first woman of color to join the royal family, factors that would add enormously to the pressure."
"Unspoken to Harry, the person said, was the older brother’s fear that Harry’s mental fragility was such that he wouldn’t be strong enough to handle all of that on her behalf, as well as his own issues," Brown added.
