Once upon a time, Prince Harry was known as the party prince who played strip billiards in a Las Vegas hotel room (is that even a thing?) and staggered out of nightclubs with bloodshot eyes and a desire to punch photographers. And, who could forget the Nazi uniform?

However, in the years after such shenanigans, Prince Harry became one of the most beloved members of the royal family. His dancing skills, infectious smile, work on the Invictus Games, and genuine personality made him highly likeable.

Prince Harry Was Once A Beloved Member Of The Royal Family

Fast forward a few years, when Harry met Meghan. The prince we had come to love for his vivacious personality suddenly became more private, suspicious, and was abandoning childhood friends.

Meghan Markle clearly has an influence over her husband, in various ways. A source recently spoke to ET, about Meghan's "Californian health habits" and how Harry is picking them up. They said Harry is "really taking to the West Coast lifestyle."

While the couple are currently residing in a mansion in Vancouver, there has been talk of them moving to L.A. in the future, so Harry may be preparing himself for the change.

The source also claimed Meghan is extremely health conscious, and loves to cook, something Harry has picked up as well. The couple do yoga together, as well as enjoying hikes with their dogs and baby Archie.

Relationship coach Sami Wunder told Express.co.uk that Meghan may have become much stronger after her first failed marriage to Trevor Engelson. She claims, “Meghan is not afraid to call the shots and make her own decisions, something many women with less experience would be afraid to do.”

She continued, “Just the fact that Meghan went on to date Prince Harry after her bad marriage to Trevor Engelson tells me that she is a woman who believes in love and in not giving up.”

Body Language Says Meghan Is Calling The Shots

It was clear Meghan was calling the shots from early on in the relationship. Body language expert Judi James spoke to The Sun about the power dynamic between the couple, saying, "From her first appearances and interviews as Harry’s bride-to-be there were always underlying body language cues that suggested Meghan was a confident woman with a passion for making a change."

While it first appeared as if Harry was the one doing the leading, especially on engagements, Meghan stepped into her role very quickly.

Judi told The Sun, "But as Meghan gained in experience as a royal though it has appeared to be Meghan stepping out center stage and offering Harry the pats of comfort, love and approval during their public appearances."

The Blame Was Put On Meghan For "Megxit"

Many have automatically put the blame for Harry and Meghan's departure from the royal family squarely on her shoulders, however we'll never really know with absolute certainty who brought up the idea or who pushed for it.

Many are convinced it was Meghan who brought up the idea, with Prince Harry following her lead. Now, in their new non-royal life, who will be calling the shots?

It appears Meghan is the one who wears the pants, with Prince Harry looking to her as a sort of mother figure who will lead him and comfort him in life.

What will happen next for the couple, with Meghan's influence seemingly very high in the actions they take?
