The year 2020 will have been trying for Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle. It has now been a year since Princess Diana’s son and the former American actress made the choice to move away from London, its royal palaces and the royal family to live a new life in North America. After moving, it was in March 2020 that the couple announced they were stepping down from their roles as senior members. An announcement that shocked the whole world and Queen Elizabeth II too.
Several months later, it looks like the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have no regrets about their Megxit. According to British historian and biographer Robert Lacey, Prince Harry was tired of being “the spare,” the writer said in an interview with People magazine. According to the expert, Prince Harry wanted to “go out and start a new life” and “asserted his own identity” by moving to the United States. “To remain in the royal system also means to bow to the submission of those who are older than oneself,” he concluded. Now the 36-year-old father no longer has to respond to orders from his elders – at least not as much.
Meghan and Harry have no regrets
A source close to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said the two “love” to focus on projects that are close to their hearts. Especially since they have fulfilled their “dream” of being financially independent. “Meghan and Harry took a huge risk embarking on their new life,” the source added. And to conclude: “Despite everything that has happened this year, they do not regret having moved to the United States.” A few days earlier, another source told Us Weekly that Archie’s parents are now closer and closer than ever.
