Prince Harry ‘s old pals are reportedly “avoiding him” not because of the geographical distance, but due to his wife Meghan Markle, according to Royal commentator Tom Quinn.

The Royal author has claimed that Harry’s friends are reluctant to visit the Duke and Duchess in their Montecito home as they find Meghan “they find Meghan difficult”. Furthermore, Quinn suggests that Harry is unwilling to reconnect with his military buddies as they represent his “pre-Meghan world “.

In a previous chat with the Mirror, Quinn shared: “Harry has a few friends from the army and from his days at school, but they are a part of the old pre-Meghan world that Harry hates to revisit.”

“His military friends feel he has betrayed them by writing about his military service in such an un-military way and his old Etonian friends don’t like the new ‘woke’ Harry. Conservative with both a small and a big C, they see the new Harry as a tree-hugger with whom they have nothing in common.”

Critics also argue that Harry’s military mates were “extremely unhappy” with some of the remarks he made in his explosive memoir, Spare. Royal commentator Gareth Russell told GB News that Prince Harry had previously faced criticism from the military community.

In discussing the British military’s response to Prince Harry’s comments, he said: “There were very clear signs from the military in Britain that they were extremely unhappy with many of the comments made in Spare and on several chat shows. I don’t think there’s any doubt that many in the military felt he had broken a code or broken protocol, and that means a great deal within the British military.”

Despite people harbouring “a great deal of affection” for the Prince and his work with the Invictus Games, controversy loomed. He further commented: “Even those who have admiration for the Invictus Games have said that they felt the comments in Spare were isolating and inappropriate.”

Prince Harry revealed in his memoirs the shocking fact of having killed 25 Taliban fighters in Afghanistan, likening them to “chess pieces taken off the board”. His reflection on this in his book was, “It wasn’t a statistic that filled me with pride but nor did it make me ashamed. When I was plunged into the heat and confusion of battle, I didn’t think about those as 25 people.”

Harry was conspicuously missing last month at one of his oldest friends’ wedding, as Hugh Grosvenor, godfather to Sussexs’ son Archie, wed Olivia Henson at Chester Cathedral, without the Duke in attendance.

Hugh Grosvenor got hitched to his girlfriend of two years, Olivia Henson, in an elegant ceremony held at Chester Cathedral which was graced by Prince William but not his brother. Discussing this, Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams noted a sense of “sadness” surrounding the event as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex failed to show up for what he dubbed “the wedding of the year”.

Speaking to the Mirror, he said: “To feel you have no choice but to miss the wedding of the year is very sad. However, the deep rift within the Royal Family has ensured that Harry and Meghan were never going to accept an invitation to the wedding of Hugh Grosvenor, Duke of Westminster, godfather to Archie and a close friend of Harry. They knew William would be there, reportedly as one of the ushers.”
