Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down from royal duties in 2020.
The Sussex couple and their children now live in a mansion in Montecito, California.
Biographer Hugo Vickers compares Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, to an “unhappy” former monarch.
Leaving royal family duties would make those who do so unhappy. At least that is what biographer Hugo Vickers tried to maintain. According to this writer, quoted by the Daily Mail on October 4, 2022, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, 38, looks “completely unhappy” since the Megxit. With his wife, Meghan Markle, the Duke of Sussex left his royal duties in 2020. The Sussex couple said they wanted to get out of the weight and pressures associated with royalty, recalls the Daily Mail. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have chosen the United States as a land of refuge.
Since they have been in Montecito, the Sussexes have displayed a happy life, but this is not without counting on the observation of Mr. Vickers. The biographer even made the parallel between Prince Harry and Edward VIII, the King of England who abdicated. According to Hugo Vicker, Prince Harry “exudes the same sadness” as Edward VIII. His comparison goes into even more detail when he recalls that Edward left his royal duties for an American divorcee.
Prince Harry and Edward VIII would have chosen an “apparent happiness”
Prince Harry, 38, and Edward VIII “seemed to be beaming with sadness” after cutting ties with the royal family, confirms Hugo Vicker. As a reminder, Edward VIII abdicated in 1936 to marry Wallis Simpson. Wallis Simpson was a divorced American. The British government opposed this union. Edward VIII, like Prince Harry, never admitted regretting his departure from the royal family. But Mr Vickers says he has ‘never seen anyone with such sad eyes’ as the former monarch. He claimed that Edward VIII “took the path of seeming happiness” by marrying Mrs Simpson.
