Looking at Prince Harry these days, you’d be forgiven for thinking he has a pretty sweet life. A smart and beautiful wife, Meghan, newborn son Archie, a purpose in fighting climate change, a swish new pad in Windsor… not forgetting basically anything he wants, thanks to being sixth in line to the British throne.
But according to royal biographer Katie Nicholl, Harry wasn’t always this content. Before he met and married Meghan, the now Duke of Sussex was “lonely”.
In her 2017 biography of the 34-year-old, Prince Harry: Life, Loss and Love, Nicholl writes that after Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, moved to Anmer Hall in Norfolk in 2014, Harry didn’t have the best time.
“Harry felt detached, lonely, and ‘rudderless’, and according to a friend he dreaded Sunday nights,” she writes.
“He’d say ‘William’s got so boring,’ when in fact William was living the life I think Harry wanted for himself. I think he was worried he was going to be left on the shelf. He told me he hated being alone, especially on Sunday nights.”
Seemingly, Harry felt he’d lost his best friend and brother to marriage and babies.
“He was happy that his brother was married and had a family, of course, but he missed their friendship and at points he was very, very bitter about it.”
Of course, things soon began looking up for Prince Harry. In 2016 he met then-actress Meghan Markle, and in May 2018 they were married. Twelve months later, in May this year, baby Archie Mountbatten-Windsor was born. Now, we imagine Harry’s Sunday nights involve less sleep and more nappies.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.
