Meghan Markle and Harry’s Fab Four downfall was not ‘obvious’ – expert claims

The "Fab Four" group of the Royal Family was not an "obvious" breakdown waiting to happen between brothers Prince Harry and Prince William, an expert has said.

A strong pairing initially for the Sussex and Cambridge families saw the quartet of royal faces at the front of major royal events.

But Harry and Meghan Markle's move away from life in The Firm appears to have split up the so-called "Fab Four," which also featured William and Kate Middleton.

While the Dukes and Duchesses' weren't gearing up for a Beatles-style tribute tour, they were at the forefront of many royal events, with one expert believing they have pinpointed the moment the fallout began.

That event, according to body language expert Judi James, was a Fab Four appearance made in 2018, where the four discussed the Royal Foundation.

James said: "Like any new team there were signs of differences in terms of approach and delivery style and the mantra 'Forming, storming, norming, performing' that describes the four stages of team formation looked true of this family group as much as it would of an office-based team."

The expert added that it was here that the group dynamic showed its first signs of unravelling.

James, speaking to Daily Express, continued: "However any manager would have spotted red flags in what happened on stage here.

"The problem was we had an established team of three (Harry, Kate and William) taking on a fourth member in Meghan.

"The Royal Foundation was clearly a much-cherished long-term project of Kate and William’s, with both offering strong signals of support and loyalty to one another as they spoke."

James also claimed that the original trio were swayed somewhat by Markle, whose fast-paced approach at the event rivalled that of the "traditionally royal" pace set by the others.

James added: "Her speed of speech was faster, her confidence levels were higher and when she referred to campaign work she was already involved in her global power muscles started to show."
