Prince Harry feels ‘lost’ living in Los Angeles in the same way Meghan Markle did in the UK, a royal author has claimed.
After stepping down as senior royals in March, Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, had originally planned to split their time between the US and UK.
However the royal pair headed to LA at the start of the coronavirus pandemic and have since been staying with son Archie at Tyler Perry’s $18million Beverly Hills mansion.
Tom Quinn told the Daily Star that while the Duke of Sussex ‘doesn’t hate’ LA – he is struggling to find his ‘role’ in the US, and that him getting ‘swept up in Meghan’s positive energy’ has always been a problem in their relationship.

‘Harry does feel slightly lost because he is now experiencing in America what Meghan was experiencing here’, said Tom.
He went on to explain that while Harry was ‘swept along’ by Meghan’s ‘positive’ energy when they tied the knot in May 2018, he has since been struggling to ‘fill the days’ in LA.
‘It’s always been a problem, early on in the relationship, Meghan is a dynamo, she’s full of positive energy that would sweep Harry along but once the honeymoon is over, you still have to fill the days’.
The author went on to claim that after speaking to sources close to the couple, he believes Harry is ‘really struggling’ with his living situation, and is finding it difficult to find work.

He added that while he ‘doesn’t hate’ living in the US, he is experiencing the same confusion the Duchess of Sussex faced while living in the UK.
Earlier this week, the Duchess faced criticism from London-based veteran royal photographer Arthur Edwards, 79, who claimed she had ‘no intention’ of living in the UK after marrying Prince Harry.
He alleged that staying in the UK was not in Meghan Markle’s ‘plans’ – despite spending £2.4million of taxpayers’ money to refurbish Frogmore Cottage.

Speaking on TalkRadio, he explained: ‘All that house refurbishment at Frogmore and the money that they spent on that, she had no intention of staying here.
Arthur – who has been photographing the Duke of Sussex since the day he was born – also described seeing a change in Prince Harry’s behaviour towards the media.
‘Unfortunately for the last couple of years, he has gone completely sour,’ he said. ‘He didn’t talk to me for a year. I’ve been photographing him since he was born, and it was down to her.’

He went on to explain how the media requested to organise a meeting with the Duchess on three occasions – but it never happened.
‘I think the moment she married Harry it was ‘”right, let’s get out of here as quick as we can,” he added. ‘I mean, it was ridiculous.’
After heading to LA at the start of the pandemic, the photographer claimed the way in which Meghan changed clothes and went straight to Heathrow Airport to fly to Los Angeles suggests she ‘had no intention of staying in the UK.’
He added: ‘It’s not in her plans and she is dragging Harry along and unfortunately, he’s gone along with it.’
It comes just days after the photographer claimed Prince Harry’s criticism of the Commonwealth shows he has ‘lost the plot’ and ‘should stop listening to his wife.’
