The BBC's royal correspondent Johnny Damon said that people "in various circles" believed that the Duke of Sussex was "happier in his role" before the Duchess came, The Sun reported.

His comments came after Harry spoke candidly with host Dax Shephard on the Armchair Expert podcast in the week , comparing his life as a senior royal to “a mixture between The Truman Show and being during a zoo”.

Of the rationale he stepped down from royal life, Harry said: “In my early 20s, it had been a case of I don’t want to be here, I don’t want to try to to this job.”

He added: “Look what it did to my mum – how am I ever getting to calm down and have a family once I know that it’s getting to happen again?

“I’ve seen behind the curtain, i do know the business model, i do know how this works. I don’t want to be a part of this’.”

According to Harry, he had wanted to go away the Royal Firm in his twenties – years before he met Meghan Markle.

But Dymond told BBC Radio 4: “It’s been put to me by people in several quarters that this is often largely as a results of Meghan, that he was happier in his role before Meghan.

“He himself says during this podcast she was a part of the method of him understanding there was a special way and a special place for him to be, he’s pretty open that .

“The way some people within the palace see it, she stirs the pot for her own motives and radicalises Harry.”

Meghan and Harry have repeatedly told how happy they're together, with Harry telling Oprah during their bombshell interview in March: “I’m just really relieved and happy to be sitting here lecture you with my wife by my side.”

They are currently expecting their second child, with Meghan juggling life as a mum to son Archie and variety of latest ventures.

The Duchess recently revealed the story of her upcoming book, The Bench, saying that the illustrations embody "the warmth, joy and well-being of the parent-child relationship" - a representation that is "particularly important" to her.

Hinting at her and Harry’s happiness, she said during a statement: “My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, regardless of the makeup, the maximum amount because it does with mine.”

The Sussexes quit the united kingdom last year for a replacement life within the US after the couple stepped down as senior royals.

And Harry told Dax Shepard: “I moved my whole family to the US, that wasn’t the plan but sometimes you’ve got make decisions and put your family first and put your psychological state first.”

Dymond later said he had no feelings himself on the matter.
