'It's difficult for Prince Harry to explain to Meghan how intense royal life is'

A former royal editor says that until people have joined the Royal Family, they have no idea what life is like.

Speaking on Yahoo UK's 'The Royal Box,' ITV News' former royal editor Tim Ewart says: "We talk a lot about people coming into the Royal Family being prepared for what it’s going to be like.

"Kate and Meghan must expect to be the centre of attention, they have no idea, absolutely no idea what it’s really like.

"When it was Diana, there were photographers, there were camera men, people weren’t using smart phones. Now every single person that a member of the Royal Family meets has a smart phone up.

"Every single word that is said, doesn’t matter where the TV cameras are, doesn’t matter where the snappers, the photographers, they can be anywhere. But every single person has got their phone up or their iPad up, nothing is private anymore.

"That’s something until those people have been through it, they have no understanding of what it’s like. I know very little about Meghan Markle’s early life as an actress, she was a well-known actress but she wasn’t hunted by the paparazzi. Suddenly to come into this cauldron, into this Royal Family is beyond anything that she could ever have expected and it will be very, very difficult for Harry, as it was with William with Kate, to explain just how intense that is. How every single every expression, movement, comment - bang. That’s going to be on the front page."
