  • Before meeting Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Prince Harry was a’very angry young male’
  • Biographer also claimed that the royal was ‘taking the world on’ two years prior to this claim. 
  • Duke was still grieving the loss of his mother, and was trying to find himself.

Andrew Morton, Princess Diana’s biographer, has claimed that Prince Harry “didn’t know where to turn” before meeting Meghan Markle.

Andrew Morton, who famously penned Princess Diana’s blockbuster biography in 1992, went on to describe the Duke of Sussex as a ‘very angry young man’ who was ‘taking on the world’ before he met his wife.  

Andrew said that even though she fell in love with Harry, she insists that he sought counselling for his anger issues.

He was a young man who was angry and was taking on the world.

“He was walking around bars looking dishevelled and worse for drinking and didn’t seem like he had a compass.” 

Andrew continued: ‘He didn’t know which way to turn, and at that time, he was struggling to find himself and struggling with the loss of his mother, struggling to come to terms with it and as a young man, he wasn’t always the popular Harry of popular imagination. 

“He was described in some rather pejorative terms because of some of his behavior.”

In 2004, Prince Harry hit the headlines after being involved in a ‘scuffle’ with a photographer outside Pangaea nightclub near Piccadilly in London’s West End nightclub.

Prince Harry, Prince William and Princess Diana on holiday in Majorca, Spain in August 1987

Prince Harry, Prince William, and Princess Diana were on vacation in Majorca, Spain, August 1987.

A year later, a young Harry had caused a stir himself when, at just 20 years old, he dressed up for a party in a Nazi uniform, complete with swastika armband, sparking condemnation from politicians and Jewish human rights organisations.

After photos of the outfit were published on the internet, Harry was forced to apologize for his poor choice of costume.

The royal then enjoyed a wild weekend at Las Vegas in 2012, where he was photographed wearing only a necklace and a naked woman hiding behind him after a game in his VIP suite of strip billiards.   

However, the biographer claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex ‘found a cause in life’ after he left the British Army. He also helped launch the Invictus Games.

Andrew explained, “He’d cleaned his act, he’d gotten into the Invictus games, he’d found his cause and he stuck with it, helping disabled, mentally injured soldiers and servicewomen find their way and I think that was something which helped him find himself.”
