Prince Harry is a 'shadow of his former self' says the author of his book

Prince Harry has lost his 'charismatic, mischievous charm' since cutting himself off from the Royal Family, says an author who knows him well.

Royal writer Angela Levin, who interviewed Prince Harry for the book Harry: Conversations with the Prince in 2018, has opened up about the man she knows saying that the Duke of Sussex, 35, has 'changed enormously' since she first met him. 

The British royal author alsosays Harry is struggling to feel positive about the future, living in Hollywood with Meghan and their one-year-old son, Archie. 

Talking to Chris Ship, the host of Royal Rota, Angela revealed, "'Harry has changed enormously since I met him. I found that he was charismatic and had royal stardust about him.

"He was brilliant with people especially if they were physically, emotionally or psychologically damaged, he had a mischievous charm to him."

When the show's host suggests he still has all the qualities but they are being hidden right now, Angela adds, 'Well, he has become a bit of a shadow of himself.'

Her remarks come just days before a new book Finding Freedom is published, which outlines what happened when Meghan and Harry left the UK. 

The book, written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durant, claims relations between the Sussexes and the Cambridges have broken down.

And Angela says that the book will only add to the bad blood between Prince William and Prince Harry. 'When you read the book you realise the pile of grievances Meghan and Harry hold.  This is going back a few years now, it is absolutely extraordinary."

"They ignore all of the wonderful things they have had, the prerogatives and chances to meet great people and do charity work they want to do. It seems to me they have focused entirely on the negative.'

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex deny giving any interviews or contributing to the book directly, but it's believed they approved the access to some of the closest confidantes. 

Angela also believes Harry would be struggling in LA because he loves working as part of the Royal Family and as a team, with the 'Queen being the captain'.

"The Queen is the captain, isn't she?" Angela reveals. "Harry said it was very important to him and he loved it," she explained. "He felt that you couldn't really achieve anything without being a team."
