Even before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially tied the knot on May 19, 2018, there were already vocal critics who voiced bleak predictions for their marriage. One such negative expectation came from feminist Germaine Greer, who said that Meghan will likely bolt out of the royal family.

Greer believed that the pressure of the royal family lifestyle, coupled with the accompanying boredom, might not suit Meghan to the point that she will eventually contemplate to find a way out of the situation. “I think the pressure to escape from the firm is crushing,” Greer said during a 2018 interview with Australian show “60 Minutes.”

Apparently, Greer thought that Meghan Markle might have the tendency to get away from it all should things start to get rough, such as when she ended her first marriage in 2013. “I think she'll bolt,” Greer predicted. “She bolted before. She was out the door.”

What’s even more interesting is that Germaine Greer even considered the possibility that Meghan Markle might even convince Prince Harry to get out of the royal family with her. “I hope in a way she’ll bolt, but maybe she’ll take Harry with her,” the outspoken feminist added.

However, another royal expert does not agree with Greer’s rather bleak predictions. While Angela Mollard agrees that life in the royal family might be boring for someone like Meghan, who enjoyed so much freedom in her life in America, it is something that the couple already took into consideration before they tied the knot.

“Royal life isn’t free,” Mollard replied to a question posed by New Idea editor Frances Sheen. “It’s obligation, it’s duty, I imagine it’s terribly boring. I think it will depend on the strength of their communication as a couple and whether they turn inwards to one another rather than outward.”

As for the possibility of Prince Harry bolting out of royalty, Mollard thinks of the idea as ridiculous. “Well, Harry can’t bolt, he’s part of the Royal Family,” the royal expert replied with certainty.

Of course, nothing is set in stone. Even Mollard doesn’t dare guarantee the long-term success of Prince Harry and Meghan’s marriage. “I couldn’t guarantee, no one could, that this marriage will last,” she admitted. “They come from hugely different backgrounds.”

But Mollard is hopeful that they’ll succeed. “I hope they last. Give the girl a chance! Give her a chance to prove herself.”
