They don’t seem to regret their choice to leave the royal family at all. Last March, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave up their senior member titles in order to head to Los Angeles with their son Archie. A life far from royal obligations, where the couple have just signed a contract with Netflix to produce documentaries, and where they are more involved than ever in the presidential elections next November, to the chagrin of Buckingham Palace. But if this move allows them to reconnect with what is important to them, it is also a good way for them to stay with their son Archie.
In an interview with Malala Yousafzi, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed to the Nobel Peace Prize winner how their new life in California, but also confinement, allowed them to spend a lot of time with their little boy aged a year. And also, to attend key moments in its development. “We were both there for his first steps,” revealed Prince Harry, reports US Weekly. “His first descent, his first fall, his first everything,” he adds.
