A journalist who has close ties to the Royals claims the high maintenance Duchess has changed Harry's personality from "down to earth" to "grumpy."
Duncan Larcombe, a veteran royal reporter, claims Harry has shunned his friends in the press since marrying Meghan.
"They basically blanked the media on this tour, which is very short-sighted," Larcombe complained to The New York Post.
Lamcombe stated Harry was always accessible to the media before Meghan came along. "The two of them are high maintenance," he groused.
The journalist said Harry has become "quite grumpy and aloof from his own inner circle of staff. Harry was always very pally with [his staff], so this is very unlike him."
Larcombe blamed Meghan for Harry's misery and the drastic change in his personality.
"As an actress, Meghan expects perfection," he said. "But when you're in the royal family, you have to learn that it's not about you, it's about what you represent."
Larcombe says Prince Harry was once "a normal guy trapped in the royal world, and he doesn't take himself very seriously. But now he is."
Another insider told the NY Post that Harry's closest friends tried to help Meghan out in the early days, "but she didn't really need them after she got the ring on her finger."
Harry and Meghan are expecting their first child together in May. They tied the knot in a globally televised wedding last May.
