Talk about going straight for the jugular! A royal biographer has slammed Prince Harry for his lack of intelligence.

Lady Colin Campbell has branded the sixth in line to the throne as “a much less intelligent character” than his wife, Meghan Markle (38), and that he does pretty much whatever she says,

“I think he’s so desperate to please her and go along with whatever she says, no matter how ill-conceived it is,” she told new! magazine while promoting her new book, Meghan and Harry: The Real story. “He is that besotted with her.”

The 70-year-old, who wrote the 1992 best-selling biography Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody Knows, says the former Suits actress definitely “wears the trousers” in their marriage.

And while she acknowledges the couple, who now live in Los Angeles with their 14-month-old son, Archie, do “have a very strong relationship”, she says it’s only because Harry (35) is so entranced by his wife.

“She is as dominating, charming and captivating a personality as Princess Diana was.”

Lady Campbell says Meghan’s ambition has “always” been keen to outshine Diana and reckons her political aspirations include running for US president one day.

“I think everything she is doing, leaving the royal family and moving back to California is part of her plan and she has taken Harry along with her.”

It’s been reported that since stepping down from The Firm and relocating to the US, Harry has become desperately homesick.

Sources close to him say he also feels “guilty” for leaving his homeland and the royal family.

The coronavirus pandemic has reminded him that his father, Prince Charles (71), and his grandmother, the Queen (94) “aren’t going to be around forever”, a source told The Sun.

“On top of it all, he’s got cabin fever. It’s far from an ideal situation. Harry’s gone from feeling excited about the move to feeling secretly tortured.”
