Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: Their Birth Orders

         Prince Harry and Meghan

The British Royal family is in the news with the upcoming 
marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.  The mystery
of attraction and the enduring stability of a marriage or 
relationship has eluded men and women from the beginning
of time.  Not anymore. By using birth order theory, we can
reveal the answer to this question. Prepare to be enlightened.
Love at First Sight
Is there such a thing as love at first sight?  The answer is 
yes.  Using birth order we find there are two types. The first 
one is the most exciting, when you meet someone with your 
exact same birth order.  You see life the same and react to 
others in a similar manner.  In a sense, you are seeing yourself
in a mirror. The attraction is intense. The problem begins 
when you both want to occupy the same space.  There can 
only be one image in the mirror at a time.  This strong initial 
attraction can become a lifetime commitment as soon as the 
two people decide who is the one that will be in the mirror, 
and learn to give and take in the relationship.  The second 
type of love at first sight is when you meet someone with the 
exact birth order position of one of your siblings.  Gender 
makes a difference, it must be an exact match for birth order 
and gender. If the gender is different then you see the person 
in the light of a different gender.  This type of love at first sight 
is not as exciting as the first type, but is comfortable and long 

Prince Harry a Second Born
Prince Harry is the second born.  As a child his brother was 
referred to as the heir and Harry the spare. The Second born 
is sometimes referred to as the middle child, this only applies
if there are three children. In reality, a second child’s 
personality does not need a third child to develop. The second 
child wants to be as different as he can be from his older 
sibling.This is the child that you don’t tell what to do. He is 
usually more athletic than his older sibling who would be the 
better student. At Eton College, Harry’s former teachers said 
he was a weak student but excelled in sports, particularly polo 
and rugby. After school he entered the Royal Military 
Academy becoming an accomplished Apache helicopter pilot. 
On the personal side, he has earned a reputation for being 
rebellious having the press label him a “wild child”. During a 
holiday in Las Vegas he was photographed naked playing strip 
billiards. Marrying an American woman, and one of mixed-
race, is just another way this second born is showing that he is 
different from his older brother.

Harry’s Girls Friends
It has been reported that Harry has had two significant 
relationships. The first was Chelsy Davy from South Africa, 
this lasted for five years. She was quite an athlete and her 
birth order was the same as Harry’s, a number two.  This 
would have been a natural love at first sight for both of 
them. Obviously they never worked out who would be the 
one image in the mirror.  Harry had a shorter relationship 
with Cressida Bonas of only two years. She was from 
England and of a royal lineage. She was the fifth of the five 
siblings she lived with.  There is a four-year gap between 
Cressida and her next oldest sibling.  This gives her the 
Double birth order of a five/only.  Birth order numbers repeat 
after number four so a five is much like a number one but a 
little less pushy. She gets the Only birth order because of the
time she spent at home while her older siblings were at school. 
Her relationship with Harry was almost the other type of love 
at first sight. Harry does have a firstborn brother, but Cressida 
has a second born sister. Not a perfect match for either of 

Meghan Markle
Harry is now engaged to Meghan Markle. Meghan has a 
Double birth order. She has two older siblings 12 and 15 
years her senior. This makes her a Third born but because 
of the large gap in age from her older siblings she also 
gets the Only birth order. She interacted with her older 
siblings while she was growing up but lived in a different 
household. The Only/Three birth order gives her multiple 
characteristics. The Only side gives her self-confidence 
and a much more adult personality than Harry. Her three 
side gives her an ability to read people and situations.  
You might say she can easily manipulate people with this 
very strong but subtle double birth order. She likes to be
center stage and she usually gets what she wants. Her next 
older sibling is a boy and makes an exact birth order match 
with Harry.
Harry and Meghan
Harry must be fascinated by Meghan as he has no idea how 
someone with an Only/Three birth order behaves. He had no
girls in his family and no one in the three position. He cannot
possibly understand her and that may be why he is so 
attracted to her. Meghan has a brother in the number two 
position, this allows her to understand Harry. This gives her 
an advantage. It will take Harry some time to unmask 
Meghan’s real personality.

Princess Diana 
Harry's mother Princess Diana was a 3/1 double birth order.
This may give Harry an little insight into the Three 
personality.  A Three/One is nothing like a Only/Three.

Marriage Longevity
All birth order combinations can work; some just take more 
work. Understanding your spouse is easier if you have grown 
up with a sibling of the same birth order. For Harry, this is 
going to be difficult, he has no sisters and no third sibling. He
may never understand Meghan.  For her, the prize, her Prince, 
may be difficult to control or manipulate. If she tries to tell 
Harry what to do, it may be the end of the marriage. Having 
an older brother that is also a number two will be very helpful 
to her. For Harry, he will be marrying two people, an Only and 
a Three. This should make things interesting and should keep 
both Harry and Meghan at the top of their game.

Update 1-14-2019
The wedding is over and Meghan is now pregnant. It has been 
just over a year ago that she married into the Royal family. Her 
demands on her staff have the British media branding her 
"Duchess Difficult." Interviews with her family in Vanity Fair 
paint her as a calculating social climber, she carefully 
choreographs every moment of her life. Her goal was always to 
become a household name. Not a person you can really 
become friends with. What she got with Harry was 
unimaginable attention. It looks like this Only/Three has found 
her place in the world. Will Harry ever see the real Meghan?

John McCain His Birth Order Makes Him The Maverick Senator

                                                 Senator John McCain III

John Sidney McCain III long time US Senator from Arizona 
and a former prisoner of war in Vietnam.  Known as a Senator
that goes his own way sometimes breaking with his own party.    
Why does he have this reputation? His birth order answers the 

Early Years
John Sidney McCain III was born August 29, 1936 in the Canal 
Zone in Panama. This is where the family was living as his 
Father John McCain Jr. was serving with the Navy. His older 
sister Jean “Sandy” McCain was born two years earlier in 1934
and his younger brother Joseph was born in 1942.  This gives 
John the # two birth order.  Coming from a military family with 
both his father and grandfather four star admirals, it is safe to 
assume that John, the firstborn son, got the attention that only 
a firstborn child receives. 

The Second Born
Everyone with the same birth order are not alike.  There are 
other factors as explained in my book Life’s Fingerprint that 
color one’s personality. The fact that he was the first born 
boy, he may have felt from his parents, expectation of high 
achievement.  This would add extra pressure on him that he 
may resented The second born wants to control his own 
environment and doesn’t like others telling him what to do. 
He also has an inner understanding about what is right and 
fair.  You don’t have a second chance to make a first 
impression with a second born. This birth order is often 
referred to as the stubborn middle child. McCain fits the 
description and has won the title of “Maverick” for this 
behavioral trait.

John attended 20 different schools before the family 
settled in Northern Virginia. Following his father and 
grandfather, he entered the United States Naval Academy 
at Annapolis. During his time there he was known for
 standing up for other students that were targets of 
bullying, second borns can’t turn their backs on injustice. 
He also had a hard time with the rules and came into 
conflict with higher ranking personal. His class rank 
was 894 of 899 as he didn’t take his education seriously. 
His lack of achievement could have been the direct result 
of the high expectations that his family expected from 
this rebel. No one tells a #2 what to do.

McCain was trained as a naval aviator. He was known 
as a man that partied and was a bit of a reckless pilot. 
Two of his flight missions crashed and a third mission 
collided with power lines, he received no major injuries. 
In 1967 he was aboard the USS Forrestal flying missions 
in Operation Rolling Thunder when he was involved in 
an accident on the flight deck. He escaped from his 
burning jet but the ensuing fire killed 134 sailors and 
put the USS Forrestal out of commission.  He then went 
to the USS Oriskany to continue flying missions. His 
plane was shot down over North Vietnam where he 
suffered two broken arms and a broken leg before he 
was taken to the Hoa Lo Prison nicknamed the “Hanoi 
Hilton.” He spent five and a half years suffering repeated 
torture and beatings.  When they offered him early release 
because his father was an Admiral he refused and would 
not accept special treatment. He honored the military
code of first prisoner in first prisoner out. The stubborn 
second born trait can be seen even in the most trying of 

Leaving the military, he entered Arizona politics in 1982. 
He was elected to the US House of Representatives and 
next elected to the U.S. Senate in 1986. Although a 
conservative, he has been known to disagree with his 
party on certain issues. He ran for the office of President 
in 2008 but lost to Barack Obama.  During the Trump 
Presidential campaign, he was insulted by Trump 
referring to his Vietnam capture. Second borns don’t 
forget an insult. When it came time to vote on the repeal 
of Obama Care his vote was the one that denied President 
Trump a victory.  The maverick title was still intact.

Brain Tumor
In 2017 John McCain was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma 
brain tumor.  Success rates are very low for this type of 
tumor.  Knowing this number two we know he is up for
the challenge.  He will do all he can not to let this problem
“tell him what to do”. Know his history, he may also win  
this, the toughest of all battles
