After marrying Harry, 34, last May, the former Suits actress instructed him to shape up and follow her healthy lifestyle before becoming a dad. A source exclusively told RadarOnline.com that now, he’s basically quit boozing and is on a strict diet and exercise plan that has led to his “dramatic” weight loss.
Apart from losing weight, Harry has also lost close pals since saying “I do” to Meghan, 37,.
The stunner’s continuing feud with Kate Middleton and her regular tantrums with palace staff have caused her and Harry to be frozen out of royal groups. Sources have even claimed Harry is less close to brother William due to the nasty fight between their wives.
“Meghan basically transformed Harry into Meghan 2.0” said the insider. “She has him into all sorts of meditation, yoga and healthy eating, just like her.”
While it’s technically healthy for Harry, friends have realized he is no longer acting like himself.
“It’s led to Harry being frozen out of the royal circles he may desperately need in the future if things start to go wrong with his relationship with Meghan,” continued the source.
The change in the Duke of Sussex has also been noted by socialite and royal biographer, Lady Colin Campbell, who boasts a wealth of royal contacts.
“She’s radically altered his diet to such an extent that people in the palace are anxious about his eating habits,” she told reporters. “I was told that people at the palace are concerned at the fact that he seems to have lost more weight than they would like to have seen him lose.”
While Harry has been happy to mold into his wife’s lifestyle, his longtime friends no longer recognize him!
“Harry has also distanced himself from his friends. Many of his old buddies have concerns that Meghan, with her Hollywood beliefs, has not understood that some of them are in direct conflict with the traditional British way of life,” said Campbell, 69. “All married couples change subtly, but when someone changes as much as Harry has, it creates a distance for friends.”
Campbell — also known as Lady C — said royal insiders believe Harry’s dramatic changes come from him being bewitched by Meghan.
She added: “My understanding is that he’s completely besotted with her and she’s got a very strong personality, and one of the characteristics of people with these very strong personalities is that other people are inclined to be in their thrall.”
Ever since their wedding, Meghan and Harry have decided to move out of Kensington Palace, break court with Kate, 37, and William, 36, and start their own Instagram account!
“Like many powerful, feminine women, seems to use Harry’s masculinity as a foil for her own femininity — so he’s protecting her at the very moment that she is in the more potent position in the relationship,” Campbell added. “It’s a very classical thing that women of an older generation used to do – let the man believe that he’s in the driver’s seat, when they’re the ones who have their hand on the wheel.”
