Prince Harry is just as in love with Meghan Markle as he was when he first asked her, but the couple have yet to find a ‘passion’ in terms of careers, said a royal expert.
The Duke knelt four years ago, on November 27, 2017, and the couple married a year later in a £ 36million ceremony at Windsor Castle.
The Sussexes resigned their royal duties and left their UK base at Frogmore Cottage and moved to California last year.
Since then, the couple have been at the center of controversy, but through all trials and tribulations they still have a solid foundation, according to Kinsey Schofield, founder of To Di For Daily.
She says there are several acts of devotion that show the couple’s love, both in candid photos and in controversial interviews.
On March 8 of this year, Meghan and Harry filmed an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, addressing allegations of racism in the monarchy and sharing Meghan’s fight with mental health.
Kinsey told the Daily Star: “The Oprah Winfrey interview was very revealing in the sense that Prince Harry grew up with a lot of resentment towards the media, never releasing dirty laundry and super protective of his privacy.
“The session was like an exception Harry made to appease his wife. “
Harry and Meghan welcomed their first child Archie was born in 2019, followed by daughter Lilibet in June this year.
And Kinsey believes the prince looked “genuinely satisfied” in the photo they posted to announce the couple’s second pregnancy.
She added: “It’s clearly Harry and Meghan against the world. Becoming parents has linked them enormously.
“They fiercely protect their families and try to navigate between public and private life.”
In recent months, the couple have taken the plunge and made their public debut in New York City in September, where they visited the 9/11 Memorial and One World Trade Center.
“During their two recent trips to New York, he shook hands with her as if his life depended on it,” the expert said.
“They are both very affectionate physically to each other in public. It’s very sweet.”
She then highlighted Harry’s first interview on American television after his royal outing – which was on The Late Late Show with James Cordon.
“I thought the interview with James Corden was a great reflection of his settling in the United States and his pursuit of happiness. He was funny and free,” she added.
But despite this, the expert believes the Duke and Duchess “are still trying to find their place in America”.
Thinking back to Oprah’s interview, she said: “The Sussexes had an advantage in the United States because not everyone follows the Royal Family closely.
“The royal family, unable to fight back because of protocol, couldn’t fight every charge in the court of public opinion, so the Americans assumed silence meant guilt and sided with the Sussexes.
“But the couple didn’t become such a polarizing figure in the United States until they used an appearance on the Time 100 special to support presidential candidate Joe Biden.
“That’s when support for the Sussexes split into party lines.”

Kinsey went on to say that the Duke and Duchess have since explored several career opportunities but remain dissatisfied.
The couple have started businesses including a deal with Netflix, participated in podcasts, and Meghan has even published a children’s book.
She added: “They are united as a family and I think things are strong at home but professionally we know that they are both looking for opportunities that they are passionate about and that give them purpose.
But she thinks Meghan “really wants a place in the Democratic Party.”
“Meghan is very ambitious and always looking for the next opportunity,” she added.
“I don’t necessarily think she wants to be president, but I think she might aspire to be someone like Nancy Pelosi or AOC.
