Prince Harry, royal biographer Ingrid Seward said, appears to have embraced his new life in the US quickly enough to let anyone think he is considering returning in the fold of the Royal Family over the next few months. She said: “He can celebrate his birthday on a high.
“He’s embracing his new life and everything is an adventure right now.
“He has moved on very quickly, and I don’t think he misses his old life at all.”
Similarly, royal expert Omid Scobie depicted the Duke of Sussex as “very content and happy” as he turns 36.
He told Vanity Fair: “Here is a man who’s very content and happy with his marriage, his family life, and thriving within his professional life.
“This is the moment he can sit back and think, ‘I made it.’
“He has found his happiness.”
Since 2018, Prince Harry married Meghan Markle, welcomed his firstborn Archie Harrison into the world and broke free from the Royal Family.
Since March, when he and Meghan officially stepped down as senior royals, Prince Harry has relocated to California, bought his first home in the US with Meghan and signed a multi-year deal with Netflix, effectively entering the realm of show-business.
Going through all of these changes with Meghan, the Duke of Sussex has demonstrated his relationship with the Duchess is “more than a marriage” according to Mr Scobie.
He added: “In Meghan, Harry has met a woman who meets him on many levels.
“They share the same ideals and wishes for the world. Meghan gets criticised for a lot, but one can’t knock her authenticity when it comes to wanting change and giving back.
“This is more than a marriage. It’s a couple on a philanthropic journey together, with the same goals.

“Harry has always said he wanted a teammate, and now he has one.
“Meghan brings things to the table, things Harry hasn’t been familiar with – Hollywood, for a start.”
Meghan and Prince Harry announced their deal with the US streaming platform in early September.
Issuing a joint statement, they said: “Our lives, both independent of each other, and as a couple have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection.
“Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.
“As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens.
“We are pleased to work with Ted and the team at Netflix whose unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action.”
The deal with Netflix, which counts 193 million subscribers to its platform, could be worth between £35million and £75million, Professor Johnathan Shalit, founder of InterTalent Rights Group, said.
These whopping figures could be due to the fact there aren’t many members of the Royal Family ready to work with a US streaming giant, the expert noted.
He told Newsweek: “My guess is they’re probably on a par with the Obamas if not more. Certainly not less.
“The thing is about American presidents, there are quite a few of them around.
“As much as the Obamas are amazing, the world is divided about how successful he was.
“Whereas with Harry and Meghan, never before has a grandson of the Queen and son of the future king become available to the commercial market place.
“These people are entirely unique.
“There is only one of them in the world and there can be only one available.”
