Megan Markle made headlines when she confirmed herself and Prince Harry were "two people who are happy and in love" , in an interview with Vanity Fair.

And while many fans of the Royals and the actress were delighted to learn a bit more about the romance between the Suits star and the fourth in line to the throne, others have warned her that it was a mistake.

His comments come after a number of Royal watchers have said they felt she'd made a poor choice regarding speaking out about the romance after Harry took the unusual move when he asked the media to respect his girlfriend's privacy last year.

"Meghan is in a position where she can't win, and she'll learn that soon," he told Closer magazine. "Maybe it was a mistake for her to speak out so early."

"People are so desperate to learn more about her, but if you open the door a tiny bit to your life, it's hard to close it," he said, before issuing her a warning.

"Diana said the media was like a wild animal that she tried to tame but would always bite off her hand, and Meghan will learn that too."

His comments come after Meghan spoke to the famed US society magazine. In the interview she referred to HRH Harry as her "boyfriend", and gushed over their relationship.

This is for us.

It's part of what makes it so special, that it's just ours. But we're happy. Personally, I love a great love story."

The pair have been officially dating since last October and are thought to have started seeing each other in June 2016.
