Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry married in their stunning May 2018 royal wedding.

Ms Mollard said: “I think they have to have a marriage that is stronger than most, and I think that’s going to be very, very hard.
“The reason I think it’s going to be hard is that neither of them have had a model of a successful relationship.
“I don’t like the phrase ‘broken family’, but they haven’t seen people solve their problems.

“That’s not their model of a mum and dad, solving issues.”
Prince Charles and Princess Diana had an infamously difficult married life, that ended with their acrimonious divorce in 1996.
Meghan’s parents, meanwhile, divorced when the future Duchess was six years old, in 1988.
Ms Mollard added: “I’m not saying that that’s going to mean that their marriage won’t work out.
