Anyone who remembers how Prince Harry was when he was younger will understand that he has caused his family many worries and headaches. The prince was constantly on the news because of his crazy antics and was the total opposite of his more mature brother Prince William. However, in the last few years Harry made an amazing 180s. As he prepares to give birth to his first child, it is a good time for us to look back on Harry's life in his youth, to see how long Queen Elizabeth has been waiting for her grandson to settle down.
Prince Harry was known as a wild child when he was young
In his teens, the news surfaced that Harry got into trouble. As a student, he was caught using drugs and accused of using the help of a teacher to cheat.
Some years later his character came into question when he was photographed in a Nazi costume. As if that was not enough, when Harry was in the military, he was also arrested on tape when he described his comrades as "Paki" and "Raghead". Although he apologized for both incidents, they undoubtedly left a mark on his image.
At the end of the decade, when William was dating his longtime girlfriend, Harry made headlines for his parties. In 2012, naked pictures of his wild night in Las Vegas appeared in tabloid magazines around the world, causing the royal family a lot of shame and embarrassment.
Prince Harry met a party girl before he met Meghan Markle
. In his youth, Harry was known to be in a relationship with Chelsy Davy, the daughter of a Zimbabwean billionaire. While Davy studied law in London and worked in a prestigious law firm, she was best known for having an image of a party girl in the media-not unlike Harry's reputation.
The couple lived for several years before finally breaking up. According to reports, this was because Davy did not want to bear the burden of marriage to the royal family.
Prince Harry became a serious family man with Meghan Markle
. After many years of negative headlines, however, Harry managed to turn his life around. In recent years, he began to do more work to represent the Queen and support meaningful reasons.
More importantly, Harry had also fulfilled his dream of starting a family when he married American actress Meghan Markle. She herself has the same goal and a history of humanitarian work that allows Harry to exert a good influence on him.
Far from his days of committing offensive acts, Harry is known today for promoting equality and equality of human rights alongside his wife. He is a feminist and Meghan has also stated that she wants her child to be a feminist regardless of gender.
The couple expects his first child, which could be soon, and Harry helped his wife a lot during her pregnancy. From setting up her new home to reducing his workload to be there for her, Harry was a model of a great husband and father.
Queen Elizabeth seems to really like Meghan Markle
In the old days, Queen Elizabeth was not worried about Harry anymore – he has grown into a great man and lives a more meaningful life. The queen also likes to have Meghan. The former actress is a great companion to Harry and takes her role in the royal family very seriously. No doubt, Queen Elizabeth is proud of her grandson, how far he has come.
