A famous former Vanity Fair editor has claimed that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s marriage will last ‘years rather than decades.’
Canadian Graydon Carter, 74, said he believes the Duchess of Sussex, who wed the Duke in 2018, ‘has run rings around poor Harry to get money, notoriety and a title.’
Since their royal nuptials in St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in 2018, the Sussexes have stepped back from their duties in the royal family, moved to California, and had two kids, Lilibet and Archie.
But the marriage may not last the distance, Carter said. The founder and co-editor of Air Mail, told the Sunday Times: ‘I would measure the duration of the marriage in years rather than decades.

‘I think she has run rings around poor Harry and gotten what she wanted: notoriety, money, and a title. His usefulness to her diminishes daily.’
Carter said that he did not think Markle would make an acting come back – but did say: ‘If there is a Real Housewives of Montecito show in the works, she’d be a shoo-in.’
The royals appear to be as happy and devoted to one another as ever. During a speech at an event last month, Meghan told onlookers: ‘Being a mom is the most important thing in my entire life.’
She then gestured towards Harry, who was in the audience, adding: ‘Outside of my marriage to this one.’
Since their dramatic exit from royal duties, the pair have had their fair share of business ventures. They created their charity Archewell, signed a five-year $100 million contract with Netflix, and a $20million exclusive deal with Spotify to produce ‘uplifting’ audio projects.
Meghan has stayed relatively under-the-radar for much of this year, with the Duchess reportedly enjoying quality time at their $13 million mansion in Montecito, California, with Harry, as well as their four year-old son Archie and two year-old daughter Lilibet.
LA-based marketer Stacy Jones told the times that Meghan is currently going through a ‘major rebrand’ and suspects the Duchess may seek to move away from a ‘victimization’ narrative.
Jones explained: ‘That’s not a platform you can build a brand on.’

The Duchess, who was married to movie producer Trevor Engelson between 2011 and 2014, also wrote a children’s book, The Bench, and launched her podcast, Archetypes. It was canceled after a single season.
Her old drama series, Suits, has rocketed in popularity in recent months, sparking claims Meghan could make an acting comeback.
The Duchess, who hired a powerful new agent earlier this year, is also said to be considering relaunching her popular Instagram account The Tig.
An autobiography may also be in the works, with any such tome likely to be filled with explosive revelations centered on Meghan’s brief life as a working royal.
She and Harry enjoyed a huge publicity blitz earlier this year thanks to the release of his tell-all autobiography Spare.
The book detailed Harry’s feud with his brother William and other eye-catching life moments including Harry losing his virginity to an older woman and his use of cocaine.
Hollywood insiders believe Meghan may even have designs on a political career.
The star has spoken out to share her views on causes including gender equality and racial justice, as her royal relatives in the UK remain silent on such dilemmas to avoid being seen as partisan.
