Meghan Markle could “dominate Archie and Lilibet’s lives”, according to a royal source who fears it could cause problems later on.

Royal author, Tom Quinn claimed in his new book ‘Guilded Youth’, that the Duchess of Sussex is a very hands-on parent with the young royals.

And he fears that this parenting style will lead her to “dominate their every move” as they grow older.

One of Prince Harry's friends told the author that Meghan is great with her children.

The extract reads: “[Meghan] will be great when her children are very young because she will show them an example of someone who goes out and tries to grab the world by the scruff of the neck – she has such a level of certainty about herself and the world that Archie and Lilibet will feel safe – very safe, perhaps too safe!

“We know she has been very hands-on with the children. But she could end up dominating their every move when they are older.

“She is a very dominating not to say domineering character and it will be hard to keep that out of her parenting”.

The author goes on to write that this could lead to issues later in the children's lives as they struggle to live in the shadow of their famous parents.

The friend, who knows the prince from his clubbing days, also claimed that the 41-year-old mum of two likes to exclusively mix with celebrities – causing further issues.

The extract continued: “That was a major part of her problem in the UK – American culture is so different from UK culture. Celebrities all suck up to each other.

“When you are an American celebrity and you mix with celebrities in the US, you just get used to everyone around you saying how marvellous you are.

“Meghan hated the UK because as a member of the royal family, she realised she was going to be treated not as a celebrity but as a servant of the people. That was unbearable for her.”

The Daily Star has approached Sussex representatives for a comment.
