Prince Harry will “hold on” to wife Meghan Markle “like a life raft,” royal biographer Tom Bauer tells Page Six EXCLUSIVELY.
The Duchess of Sussex “fulfills” all of the “requirements” of the Duke of Sussex but “didn’t get it from any other girlfriend,” says the author of “Revenge: The War Between Meghan, Harry and Windsor.” I am explaining.
