Prince Harry was punching above his weight with Meghan Markle, says expert

Before Prince Harry met Meghan Markle, he was considered one of the world's most eligible bachelors.

But according to a royal expert, Camilla Tominey, the former Suits actress was still considered to be way out of his league.

In a video for The Telegraph , the associate editor and longtime royal correspondent reflected on her coverage of the Sussexes' relationship since they began dating in October 2016.

She said: "So it was October 2016 when I managed to glean that Harry was going out with this woman called Meghan Markle who was an American actress, and that was quite a significant scoop for me and for the newspaper.

"And then to see it evolve into this extremely serious relationship that then led to marriage at Windsor Castle obviously sort of completed the circle of that particular relationship with Prince Harry.”

But upon learning more about the woman who would become the mother of Harry's children and her string of charity work, including with the United Nations, Tominey declared that the Duke may have been punching above his weight with her.

She added: "I think the feeling was that even though he was one of the world’s most eligible bachelors, there was this sense that Prince Harry was massively punching above his weight."

Referring to Harry’s interview with Tom Bradby in South Africa in 2019, he said: “The funny thing is, what he said in the ITV interview was that he's withdrawing from Royal life, because he doesn't want to be in the limelight.

“But then he’s morphed into this creation in America, where’s he’s on the top of a bus, singing with James Corden.

“It’s a million miles from what he professed that he wanted – he said he wanted a private life."
