“I’d measure the duration of the wedding in years fairly than a long time,” Carter, 74, told The Sunday Times in a recent interview.
“I believe she has run rings around poor Harry and gotten what she wanted: notoriety, money, and a title. His usefulness to her diminishes every day.”
Carter can also be betting that Markle, 42, won’t return to acting. The Duchess of Sussex famously starred within the drama “Suits” before marrying Harry, 39, in 2018.
“If there’s a ‘Real Housewives of Montecito’ show within the works, she’d be a shoo-in,” snarked Carter, Vanity Fair editor from 1992 to 2017.
The Post reached out to Sussex reps for comment.
Carter’s predictions come because the royal couple were spotted Saturday night attending the ultimate performance of Katy Perry’s “PLAY” residency on the Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas.
The pair — who began dating in 2016 and stepped back from royal life in 2020 — also recently attended a mental health conference in NYC, where Markle said that being married to Harry is one in all the “most significant things in my entire life” besides motherhood.
Markle made the declaration while saying she is fearful of the day their two kids — Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet, 2 — start using social media.
“As parents, though our children are really young, they’re 2 and 1/2 and 4 and a 1/2… but social media is just not going away,” Markle explained.
“I believe by design, there was an entry point that was presupposed to be positive in creating community and something has devolved.”
Notably, the social media conversation about Harry and Markle tends to be negative, researchers have found.
Carter’s comments also follow the remarks of 1 royal journalist who argues that Harry has turn out to be totally “dependent” on Markle “for his social life.”
“I get the impression he hasn’t got a circle of drinking buddies he can unwind inside Montecito, which has a population of older people, and I’m sure that takes its toll,” writer Phil Dampier told The Mirror last week.
“Not only has he lost his family, his royal status and military connections, but he’s also lost plenty of friends,” he added, saying that Harry paid “an enormous cost” leaving the UK.
