It comes as the Duke of Sussex launched another scathing attack on the Royal Family and royal author Duncan Larcombe has warned the latest outburst could “end in disaster for Harry” as he is “burning bridges, left right and centre”. Last week, Harry appeared on the podcast Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard and took an apparent swipe at his father, Prince Charles.
Harry stressed he wants to “break the cycle” of the “pain and suffering” of his royal upbringing as he raises his own children.
The Duke also said he did not want to be a working member of the Royal Family in his 20s and stated he now feels “free” with his new life outside The Firm in California.
Mr Larcombe, author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, is less convinced by the Duke’s newfound happiness stateside and insists “content people don’t create arguments and criticise people”.
He told Closer: “I believe that, despite Harry’s insistence that he’s happy, he’s far from it. I don’t think he or Meghan are happy.
“Content people don’t create arguments and criticise people – content people want to make amends.”
Both Harry and Meghan have spoken publically about their own struggles with mental health and support a number of organisations.
Mr Larcombe acknowledges the Queen’s grandson has had a “traumatic” life following the death of his mother when he was just 12-years-old.
The royal expert believes Meghan has been a great help for Harry to open up on his life experiences, but insists in interviews the Duke is “desperately trying to convince himself that he has found happiness”.
Mr Larcombe claimed: “I think what we see and hear from these interviews is a man who is desperately trying to convince himself that he has found happiness, and he has been through it all and reached the other side – that he’s finally free.
“I don’t think that’s the case. He and Meghan aren’t happy or free. I don’t think his move to LA has solved anything.”
Harry has made a number of media commitments since leaving the Royal Family, including the infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
The royal author added the Duke may one day look back with some regrets and warns of further trouble ahead.
Mr Laccombe said: “I really think Harry will look back on these interviews in five or ten years’ time and regret some of what he’s said.
“I hope it doesn’t end in disaster for Harry – but I think this has been the biggest gamble of his life and it seems like it’s heading that way.
“With this latest set of revelations from him, he’s burning bridges, left right and centre.
“If happiness can be found when you’re burning bridges and you’re isolated from your family, as Harry is, then good luck – but the odds are definitely stacked against Harry being happy in this new life.”

Speaking on the podcast Armchair Expert, Harry gave an emotional insight into growing up inside the Royal Family and his views of fatherhood.
Harry and Meghan are expecting their second child, a baby girl, later this year.
He told the podcast: “I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.
“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say ‘you know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you’.”
