The Duchess of Sussex is reportedly dabbling in her past and giving Prince Harry lessons to assist him with his fear of public speaking.

According to The Sun, the former Suits actress is uncovering an acting tip or two to help Harry improve his presence on stage to "maximise the couple's star quality".

Markle has been boosting his on-stage confidence by giving him "extensive" acting classes.

The source pointed out: "You only have to look at the duke to see how much more relaxed he is on stage. He used to be nervous and embarrassed.

On Wednesday Prince Harry gave a WE Day speech (for WE Charity for children) at Wembley arena where he seemed noticeably more confident.

His speech might've been compelling, yet he's faced some backlash for the "cringe-worthy" narrative he delivered, telling the Millenials they were the "greatest generation of all time."

Former royal editor for The Sun Duncan Larcombe criticised the speech for being "new age nonsense."

Larcombe said: "The extraordinary speech he gave made me think of the first time he went to Afghanistan in 2008, and he was wearing a hat and on the back of the hat was the slogan 'we do bad things to bad people'.

"The warrior prince's transition to what we heard this week which was just stomach-churning mumbo jumbo really - described as hippie talk, and new age - it's just so far away from how I knew him."

Larcombe says Markle's influence on him is inevitable, as can be seen with his encouraging "right-on" attitude.

He explained: "The signs are that she is having a fundamental influence on him … the speech he gave wouldn't have looked out of place in some kind of fundraising dinner in Hollywood.

"Who else could have possibly influenced Harry to say that. None of his old Etonian mates would speak in those terms, they wouldn't even recognise him in that speech, it's very different from his military background.

"It's new age and right on, I believe the children are the future nonsense really."
