Prince Harry Megxit bombshell shows Duke has hint of 'rebel great aunt' Princess Margaret


Royal expert Ingrid Seward compared the Duke of Sussex to the Queen’s sister. Ms Seward highlighted how Harry quit royal duties for a new life of personal and financial freedom in the US with Meghan Markle.

Meanwhile, Margaret came very close to giving up her rights of succession to marry Group Captain Peter Townsend, who was considered an unsuitable husband because he was divorced.

The royal expert told OK! magazine: “Perhaps Harry has something of his rebel great aunt about him, because he walked away.

“The Princess was so gregarious and wilful and nearly gave up her rights of succession to be with Peter Townsend.

“In the end she decided she preferred royal life.

“But I wonder if she regretted walking away from the love of her life.”

Ms Seward added that Margaret would have understood Harry’s royal struggles as they were both spare to the heir.

She said: “Being a spare is the most difficult position.

“Margaret would’ve supported Harry because royal life is relentless, even in their roles.”

“She went on to be even more rebellious in so many ways.

“But I can’t see her going on chat shows.

“She didn’t have an axe to grind.”

The Sussexes quit as working royals in March 2020 and are now living in California.
