Meghan Markle reportedly acts very “motherly” towards her husband, Prince Harry. In fact, there’s a new report that says the Duchess of Sussex often shows her maternal side towards Harry, especially when he is feeling emotional.
Prince Harry has made it no secret that he was very close to having a few mental breakdowns in the past. This was mostly because he had a hard time coming to terms with the loss of his mother, Princess Diana. At one point he even admitted that he “let everything around me tear me to pieces.”
Unlike his brother Prince William, Harry needs lots of reassurance and understanding. Thankfully, Meghan Markle has managed to step in and be that rock that he desperately needs at times.
According to Britain’s Express, journalist Angela Levin puts it this way, “Even today he sometimes has an air of vulnerability and sadness. It’s part of what has endeared him to so many people of all ages and types around the world and perhaps why Meghan Markle sometimes feels the need to be motherly towards him.”
Many royal observers will agree that Prince Harry really hasn’t had a mother figure in his life after Princess Diana died back in 1997. Even though he’s been supposedly close to Prince Charles, his father has never been affectionate the same way Diana was with her boys.
And while Prince Harry and his stepmother Camilla Parker-Bowles also have a good relationship with one another, she’s not the kind of person that he will run to with his problems. This leaves Meghan Markle as the one and only person in his life that he can truly trust with all of his thoughts, problems, and of course, his emotions.
Now, whether or not Meghan will be able to continue being motherly towards Prince Harry in the future remains to be seen. After all, as much as she doesn’t mind acting like a mother towards him, she still needs him to be her husband. Plus, the dynamics of their marriage will change the moment they welcome their first child into the world, too.
The last thing Meghan will want is to be both a mother to her children and her adult husband, too. Helping him deal with his breakdowns is one thing, but constantly having to check up on him is another.
