The Duke and Duchess of Sussex quit royal duties earlier this year for a new life in America. But royal author Tom Quinn has claimed Harry is “struggling” over what he is going to do in Los Angeles.
Mr Quinn added that Harry getting “swept along” in Meghan’s “positive energy” has “always been a problem” in their relationship.
The royal author told the Daily Star: “I’ve heard from people who have talked to them out there.
“Harry is really struggling with it, because what’s he going to do in LA? What’s he going to do anywhere? He can’t get a job in McDonald’s.
“I’m not saying Harry absolutely hates it in America, but the point that’s been made to me is that there was this new exciting venture to get away from the British press and to make Meghan happy because she’s on her own territory.
“But having got there, Harry does feel slightly lost because he is now experiencing in America what Meghan was experiencing here.
“What’s his role? He can’t take the labrador for a walk every day for the rest of his life.
“He can’t get a job in McDonald’s or for an investment bank, what’s he going to do?
“It’s always been a problem, early on in the relationship, Meghan is a dynamo, she’s full of positive energy that would sweep Harry along but once the honeymoon is over, you still have to fill the days. So what are they going to do?”

But the plan was deemed unworkable over fears it would lead to accusations they were cashing in on their royal status.
The Queen held a crisis summit with Prince Charles, Prince William and Harry to discuss the Sussexes’ future roles.
The couple temporarily moved to Canada and are now based in LA with their one-year-old son Archie.
They are living in a £15 million mansion owned by American actor Tyler Perry.
Plans for their careers outside the Royal Family include their new global charitable body Archewell.
They have also signed with New York-based Harry Walker Agency for speaking engagements.
It is understood they will focus on social issues such as racial justice in keynote speeches and moderated panel discussions.
During the lockdown, Meghan and Harry have also taken part in video calls with charities and volunteered by delivering meals in LA and making food with a youth organisation.
