The difficulties that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had within the first four years of their separation from the royal family have had an impact on their relationship, a new report claimed.

Since they made the decision to step down from their royal duties in 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have signed and lost a number of contracts during the course of their relationship. It has been stated that they are currently experiencing difficulties, and this is causing friction in their marriage. According to reports, Meghan is apparently unhappy with the way things are currently going for them.

"There is a growing rift between Harry and Meghan caused by Meghan's increasing concern that her life is not going in the direction she had planned—she loves media attention and hates the fact that surveys suggest she and Harry are no longer of much interest to the American public," royal expert Tom Quinn told The Mirror.

As soon as the Sussexes made their home in California, they entered into a multi-year contract with Netflix that was worth $100 million. In the near future, Meghan is going to premiere a completely new show.

According to reports, the lifestyle program will center on activities such as gardening, cooking, and entertainment. As a result of the ridicule that she received when she revealed her new brand, Meghan is also planning to sell things under her American Riviera Orchard label. Tom cautioned that their "Netflix contract may be under threat" as a result of this.

"Meghan feels very much under siege. The one fly in the ointment is Meghan's new internet brand, America Riviera Orchard. Meghan was in tears when the brand launched and her new jam was widely mocked for being expensive and nothing special," Tom continued.

"She has reached the point now where she thinks that anything and everything she does will be unfairly criticized. Like her husband, she feels that people are unfairly picking on her—she cannot understand why people don't admire her work,” the royal biographer added.

In addition, Tom is of the opinion that Meghan is not ready to face the insults that will be directed on her once American Riviera Orchard goes up later this year. In addition, it is said that Meghan is perplexed by the fact that many are uncomfortable with her extravagant way of living.

"She is especially sensitive about any criticism of her luxurious lifestyle in the US -- from her point of view, this is something to be admired not criticized," Tom stated.

Meanwhile, Kinsey Schofield, a royal correspondent and commentator, recently made an appearance on the podcast "The Rita Panahi Show" by Sky News. During her appearance, she discussed the commercial initiative that the Sussexes are involved in.

Rita Panahi, the host, referred to Meghan's planned Netflix program as "bloody awful" and made fun of Prince Harry's polo program, stating that she could not see it "working out."

Kinsey concurred with Rita and stated that in order for Prince Harry and Meghan's upcoming ventures to be successful, their contract with the streaming behemoth will not be renewed.

"This is crucial that this is a success... because, as you know, Harry and Meghan's only commercial hit so far has been their Harry and Meghan docuseries, which was basically was just, you know, hours and hours of them ripping into the British royal family," Kinsey told Rita.

"They've released 'Live to Lead,' which was an absolute flop. Next up Heart of Invictus, no one tuned in. So it's very, very important that Meghan's show or Harry's polo program sees some similar numbers to the Harry and Meghan docuseries or they risk losing that Netflix gig,” the royal expert went on.
