Prince Harry appears to have brushed aside reports that he and Meghan Markle ‘hated’ his Australasia tour in 2018, reported Hello magazine.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga just months after marrying in 2018, with Meghan also pregnant with her first child.
However, royal insider Tina Brown claimed in her book The Palace Papers that she spoke to numerous royal sources, one of whom told her that Harry and Meghan “hated every second” of the tour.
“Meghan apparently hated every second of it. She found the schedule of engagements ‘meaningless,’ a former palace employee told me,” Brown wrote in his book, which was published last month.
Now, in an announcement for his travel company Travalyst, Prince Harry appeared to quash these claims, at one point saying: “It was an amazing moment. We had an amazing time in New Zealand, it’s beautiful.”
Meanwhile, Meghan herself has admitted that the 2018 tour was exhausting for her and left her ‘exhausted’.
