Why Prince Charles' Former Butler Believes Meghan And Harry Are Actually Helping The Monarchy

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been accused of many things since deciding to give up their duties as senior working members of the royal family and moving to California.

Yet, according to Harper's Bazaar, the couple seems to be at ease with having left. Reporters Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand write in their book "Finding Freedom," "As difficult as recent years have been, sources close to the Sussexes say that neither Harry nor Meghan have any regrets about the decisions they have made."

However, critics continue to lambast the couple, with Piers Morgan comparing Meghan to Amber Heard and former BBC journalist and television producer Tom Bower claiming that Harry and Meghan "pose a real threat to the royal family" on "Piers Morgan Uncensored" (via Yahoo! News).

Morgan went even further. "I think they are destroying a lot of the magic of the monarchy," he said. "They are calling the royals a bunch of callous racists, and so on, without any hard evidence to support any of these claims."

Likely, he was referring to Meghan's revelation to Oprah Winfrey that certain royal family members commented on the possible skin color of her and Harry's unborn baby when she was pregnant with Archie.

Now, a royal staff member refutes the notion that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are harming the royals, claiming the royal couple is, in fact, helping the monarchy.

Grant Harrold says the monarchy's reputation is being helped by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex

Grant Harrold, a former butler to Prince Charles, is now speaking out about how he thinks the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are affecting the royal family's reputation (via Insider).

Harrold, who worked at Buckingham Palace from 2004 until 2011 and formed a personal relationship with Prince Harry, says, "I don't believe for a second that Harry would intentionally try to destroy the monarchy." He continued: "I wouldn't put it past him to want to modernize it... to make people aware of things that have gone on that are wrong."

Indeed, modernization seems to be high on the couple's agenda. In addition to speaking out against racism, Meghan Markle has been championing women's rights, including speaking on gender equality at the United Nations Women's Conference on International Women's Day.

Likewise, Harry has opened up about his mental health struggles and how he sought treatment in the Apple docuseries "The Me You Can't See" in an attempt to normalize such discussions and encourage others to seek help. He also founded the Invictus Games, an international sporting event for injured, wounded, and sick service people to help improve their psychological and physical health.

Given the royal couple's actions, it sounds like Harrold's statement rings true.
