Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been snubbed by a royal photographer who said he didn't think they'd last three years after tieing the knot.
Kent Gavin, who was close to Princess Diana, told Insider he didn't have high hopes for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after they got married.
Gavin, who was the Daily Mirror's royal photographer for a number of years, spent the majority of his career documenting Diana's life.
He developed a friendship with the Princess of Wales as he photographed her at events, including her wedding, Prince William's christening, and royal tours.
He managed to get a glimpse of an intimate view of how royal life and duty affected her.

Gavin says he didn't think Harry and Meghan's relationship could withstand the pressures of royal life when they announced their engagement back in 2017.
"When it was announced that Harry was going to marry Meghan, I said to my colleagues and a few people, 'I don't give that marriage three years,'" he said.
He went on to explain he didn't believe someone who was used to the world of Hollywood would be able to deal with The Firm.

Chloe Savage, Meghan's wedding dressmaker, also thought the same and revealed her predictions earlier this year.
"I cannot see Hollywood, which is Meghan, a beautiful woman, a confident actress, putting up with the system, which even Diana couldn't cope with," Gavin added.
Even though the photographer has had an inside look at royal life, his prediction has proved incorrect.

Meghan and Harry celebrated their third wedding anniversary in May this year.
However, when the Duchess and Duke sat down with US host Oprah Winfrey in their tell-all interview in March, Meghan admitted she was "naive" about what royal life would be like after the wedding.
"I didn't grow up knowing much about the royal family," she said.
"It wasn't something that was part of the conversation at home. It wasn't something we followed."
Meghan claimed she didn't understand how royal life would be thrust into the public view, and private moments of her life would be seen by all.
The former actress also confessed she was surprised when Harry told her she would need to curtsy when she met the Queen for the first time.
