One must ask if Prince Harry should now carefully examine his most trusted friends, because of the large number of people spreading malicious rumors about Meghan Markle. Deciding who his friends really are can be as stressful as a pop superstar, if they can trust everyone around them.
Such scenarios are real nightmares, even if we are convinced that the royals are calm in the face of such chaos. Do not blame Meghan, however, because she continually tries to make positive changes, even if the royal adherents despise her.
Who can really think of Harry as his best friends who will not mind? All we can say is what royal initiates say, which may require a complement.
Does Harry really have close friends outside of his family?
The best friends we can have in Harry's situation are those known since childhood. Harry has several close friends he has known since childhood, which proves that he has confidants to talk to apart from his father, grandparents and Meghan herself.
One of his closest childhood friends would be Tom 'Skippy' Inskip, with his definitively British middle name. Thanks to Inskip and Harry, who spent time together as children, they were seen together at various family events.
Their connection goes beyond just creating a link as children. The father of Inskip knew Prince Charles, so there was always family ties. Members of the royal family with a penchant for hanging with important personalities, you must know that Inskip's grandfather was Lord Rufus Noel-Buxton, a peer of the Labor Party.
Harry and Meghan attended Inskip's wedding with Lara Hughes-Young a few years ago. That Harry is turning to his friend Tom for wise advice is virtually unknown. Some reports say that Harry banished Inskip from his marriage with Meghan because Tom had advised him against marrying her.
Two other friends of childhood
Some friends of Harry return to preparatory school, like the van Straubenzee brothers. Thomas van Straubenzee is the closest to Harry of the two. They were seen in several places together, sometimes at rugby matches. Apparently, van Straubenzees were at the wedding of Harry and Meghan, which seems to indicate that he still has devoted friends.
Charlie van Straubenzee is the other brother who is almost as close as Harry's Thomas. It's the one you've probably seen playing rugby with Harry, dating back to adolescence.
Harry and Meghan also attended the weddings of these brothers. If Harry turns to these friends for help with advice, it's as unknown as his other friendships.
A number of Harry's friends come from sports, sometimes polo. Nacho Figueras is one of the players Harry has played polo with over the years. They are very simpatico and Figueras often remains a champion to ensure that Harry and Meghan preserve their privacy.
Harry must be happy to have a friend like this who attends his wedding, not to mention his back against the paparazzi warriors. Maybe Figueras is really Harry's best friend, just because he's not considered part of royalty, like everyone else.
With this in mind, we must also ask ourselves if Harry can always consider close family members.
Is the queen one of Harry's best friends?
One thing we've seen in recent years is the seemingly solid relationship Harry has with his grandmother. At least, this was happening for a while before Harry started dating Meghan.
What is the relationship with his grandmother now? After all the turbulence that has shaken Meghan recently. Hope she will be her best friend in the family next to her father. Having the queen in your corner and being able to confide in her without talking to her like a boss would probably keep Harry healthy in spirit for life.
Again, if Harry and Meghan decide to settle most of the time in Africa or America, they can probably clear the slate on the type of friends they have acquired.
