Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are likely to be feeling ‘fearful’ of their future outside The Firm, a royal expert has claimed.
Royal commentator Omid Scobie told how the Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 38, will be feeling anxious now they have officially completed their royal duties, and said their final farewells to their royal staff.
‘They helped them fend off attacks from the tabloids and helped them organize tours and the amazing engagements,’ he said, speaking to US television show Hollywood Access.
‘It is that team that make all of that happen. For Harry and Meghan to leave all that behind there is probably going to be a sense of fear.

The couple will officially take a ‘step back’ from their role as senior royals on March 31, where they will start a new life in Canada with their son Archie, 10 months.
‘For Meghan Markle saying goodbye to her staff didn’t just represent a sad ending for the relationship that they had working together, it also represented the end of her time as a working member of the Royal family,’ explained Omid.
‘The emotions were really heightened and there were tears and hugs.
‘I think for Meghan she really appreciates the work that this very small team, that has become like a family to the couple, have done for them.’
The royal commentator went on to say the couple’s decision to step back as senior royals hasn’t been without its sacrifices.

He added: ‘They will be starting with an entirely new group of people once they are fully out of the Royal Family.
‘That is going to take some time to really get used to.’
However, the royal expert went on to say that the couple’s decision to step back in a bid to become financially independent also means they will lose some of their privileges.
‘While they may be making sacrifices of their own, they are losing a lot of privileges as non-working members of the Royal Family,’ he said.
‘Harry gave up his honouree military titles which has probably been the toughest pill to swallow for them.’
