Parenthood may not be coming as easy to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as some royal fans have been led to believe. In the latest issue of OK! Magazine, it is revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be struggling in raising their newborn son, Archie.
A source told the magazine in their July 15 edition that the two royals “adore” their 2-month-old son but are “having a hard time adjusting” to being new parents. According to the tipster, the couple is “more than a little irritable” lately and may be seeking help from outside sources. And we’re not just talking about a nanny for little Archie.

“They’ve started seeing a professional to help them through this transition period and keep them from turning against each other,” said a source, revealing it was Prince Harry’s suggestion to participate in couples counseling.
Added the insider, “Meghan saw it as a burden at first but she’s come around. Without outside help, they’re not sure how they’ll handle it all.”
The report comes amid Duchess Meghan’s maternity leave and just months before the couple is due to venture on their first royal tour as a family. When the trio heads to Southern Africa this fall, they will reportedly have help caring for Archie during certain aspects of the trip.
“It’s likely that Archie will only be present on certain safer parts of the trip,” a source revealed divulged to Us weekly earlier this month, adding that Harry and Meghan will “travel by themselves to engagements in other countries.”
