Prince Harry went into “great detail” with Meghan Markle about the restrictions of royal life, an expert has claimed.
During her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex said she hadn’t done “any research” on the implications of joining the monarchy.
Royal expert Robert Johnson earlier told Page Six that Harry didn’t “explain it to her properly”.
However, another commentator has offered a different analysis.
Angela Levin interviewed the duke on several occasions for 2018 biography Harry: Conversations with the Prince, and got exclusive access to Kensington Palace.
She tweeted: “Harry told me he went into great detail about the restrictions and obligations.”
Meghan earlier told Oprah: “I didn't do any research about what [being a royal] would mean.
"I never looked up my husband online. I just didn't feel the need to because everything that I needed to know, he was sharing with me — or everything we thought I needed to know, he was telling me."
Meghan said she "didn't fully understand what the job" of being a working royal was.
The couple stepped back from the firm at the beginning of 2020 and lost their remaining patronages and honorary appointments earlier this year.
Since moving to the US, they’ve signed production deals with Netflix and Spotify, while Harry has secured positions with several US firms.
Royal biographer Omid Scobie, who wrote Harry and Meghan biography Finding Freedom, believes they are in no rush to release a new project.
He told the Royally Obsessed podcast: To actually see some of the fruits of the Netflix labour, to see the Spotify series, it was a great start, but I think it's just that they are not rushing.

"I don't think those first episodes of the Spotify series will be around for quite some time, partly I think because there is a baby on the way and also other focuses. I think one thing has changed in the way that they work."
He also claimed that Meghan and Harry were "desperate" to prove themselves before they stepped down as senior working royals.
Scobie added: "You only need to look at how quickly Meghan got the Smart Works collection out or how quickly Harry got the first Invictus off the ground, that's kind of how they approached their work,"
