  1. Spun Gold:

    Harry was born into a marriage that was falling apart, and it’s a marriage that played out on the world stage… The dirty laundry is right out there… Then at age 12, he has to walk behind his mother’s coffin in front of 2 billion people watching from around the world.

Prince Harry (center) with his brother Prince William and father Prince Charles at Princess Diana's funeral. (Reuters) That plays forward to today in terms of why Harry wants to be so protective of Meghan.

He couldn’t protect his mother as a 12-year-old boy, but he is determined to protect Meghan. And it comes as no surprise that he and his brother have a big distrust of the media.
