Meghan being older than Harry was William-Kate's primary concern
Royal expert and Majesty Magazine editor, Ingrid Seward said in the documentary, "William and Kate didn't have a moment to get to know Meghan because Harry hardly knew Meghan." Seward added, "And of course William and Kate would've quite naturally thought, 'Oh she's been married before, she's older than Harry, I hope she's going to make him happy.' Anyone would think that."

Before his wedding, Prince Harry reportedly admonished his brother and sister-in-law for not supporting his relationship with Meghan, who was present and maintained a "stony silence." Royal reporter for The Sun, Emily Andrews told Fox News, "I was told by a number of sources that he (Prince Harry) went ballistic." Andrews added, "He said, 'You're trying to wreck this relationship before it's even started."
