  • According to a royal biographer, Prince Harry (opens in new tab) has changed a lot since his royal exit.
  • Angela Levin (opens in new tab), who wrote Harry: Conversations with the Prince in 2018, appeared on ITV's Royal Rota last week to talk about Harry and how he's changed in the last year. 
  • She says that he's a "shadow of himself" now since moving to Los Angeles with Meghan Markle.

Prince Harry (opens in new tab) isn't the same man he used to be, according to his royal biographer.

Last week, Angela Levin, who wrote the 2018 book Harry: Conversations with the Prince (opens in new tab), appeared on ITV's Royal Rota (opens in new tab) to talk to host Chris Ship about Harry and Meghan Markle's royal exit (opens in new tab) and the bombshell royal biography Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family (opens in new tab).

According to Levin, Harry has changed (opens in new tab) a lot since she met him while working on her book. Specifically, she thinks moving to Los Angeles has had a big impact on Harry's personality and charm.

"Harry has changed enormously since I met him. I found that he was charismatic and had royal stardust about him," Levin said, according to the Daily Mail (opens in new tab). "He was brilliant with people especially if they were physically, emotionally or psychologically damaged, he had a mischievous charm to him."

When Ship said that he still saw those qualities in Harry, Levin countered that they've been diminished in a big way since his move across the pond.

"Well, he has become a bit of a shadow of himself," she said.

Wow. Harsh.
