Prince Harry scared 'new happiness' with Meghan Markle could be 'ruined' as couple face fresh blow

Prince Harry is rumoured to be worried that his current bliss with wife Meghan Markle might get tainted as the pair gear up for what could be yet another stumbling block.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are seemingly in a tricky spot as an upcoming documentary promises to spill "explosive" details about their previous lives.

This loved-up duo, who have had their fair share of controversy since their royal roles were relinquished, look set to be troubled about the shocking disclosures this new programme may reveal, reports the Mirror.

The documentary is engineered by royal journalist and German TV producer Ulrike Grunewald, who has taken her crew on a tour of California to get into the heart of Harry and Meghan's Montecito lifestyle.

Amongst the contributors to the documentary is Richard Mineards, a former UK royal correspondent now living in Meghan and Harry's Californian vicinity.

In a recent column, Mineards disclosed: "Los Angeles-based producer Melanie Hillmann grilled me for two hours on my Riven Rock neighbours, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, under director Ulrike Grunewald."

In spite of repeatedly voicing their commitment to privacy, the Sussexes might feel somewhat apprehensive about the revealing secrets the documentary could uncover.

A source suggests there may be a degree of "worry" or even "panic" within the Sussex fold, a typical response when a fresh documentary looms on the horizon.

An insider shared: "There are many things that both of them, especially Meghan, don't necessarily want in the public domain. It's no secret that they both led colourful lives before they met each other, and while Harry has spoken about a lot of mistakes in his book, there are still things about Meghan we don't know", as told to OK!.

Before becoming Prince Harry's wife, Meghan had an active social life within Hollywood.

The source alleges that there are certain elements from her past she's "brushed over", and some people are reportedly "willing to speak out".

The inside source also hints at what other parts of Meghan's history might come under scrutiny, telling OK!: "It could also delve deeper into her fall-out with Kate and challenge the Sussex camp narrative that it was all Kate's fault.

"But Harry and Meghan are now desperate to leave everything in the past as they desire a fresh start and I believe Harry will fear that their new joy could be ruined if Meghan's past is explored."

All this comes at a challenging time for Harry who - according to the source - may feel "humiliated" that his father did not make time to see him during his recent trip to the UK for the Invictus Games.

Meghan reportedly didn't join Harry due to "security concerns".

Just a few days later, the Sussexes commenced on a three-day visit to Nigeria to promote the Invictus Games.

A source has suggested that Meghan's first marriage, which ended in divorce, could be a key point of interest and potentially "explosive".

Meghan was previously married to talent manager and film producer Trevor Engelson in 2011, seven years before her wedding to Harry at Windsor Castle.

The couple separated two years later and finalised their divorce in 2014, citing "irreconcilable differences". Meghan then met Harry in 2016.

"Her first marriage didn't end well and her ex-husband is yet to speak out but who knows, for the right amount of money, he may have his say," the insider speculated.

The couple, both known for their humanitarian work, undertook a series of engagements in Nigeria aimed at promoting cultural exchange and celebrating resilience among service members.

Their busy schedule began with a tour of the Lightway Academy, a primary and secondary school in Abuja.

Their itinerary also included visits to military rehabilitation centres, sports facilities and meetings with local organisations supporting veterans' welfare.

The trip was particularly significant for Harry as it highlighted his commitment to the Invictus Games, an event he founded for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women.

Our insider suggests that this is their main focus at the moment, and they don't want anything "overshadowing" that. "This is their big chance to show they can still be royal without the full-time commitment. But they're aware it's going to ruffle a few feathers and insiders at the palace may have contributed to the new documentary as a way of keeping them down," they said.

However, this isn't the first time the couple has faced challenges and come out stronger. A source hinted: "It just makes them stronger as a couple they feel they can overcome anything when they're together."
