It has been almost a year since Prince Harry disappeared from media radars. The Duke of Sussex has set sail for the United States with his wife Meghan Markle and their son Archie for a life out of the spotlight. A new daily which is gradually anchored in the imagination of the British people. Because Prince Harry has passed a milestone in his life: indeed, he has now passed the 265 days outside British territory. Prince Harry previously spent 262 days in Africa and Australia in 2005.
In March 2020, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry renounced their title of senior members of the British royal family to embrace a new life on the other side of the Atlantic, far from Buckingham Palace. And while it took time for everyone to digest this somewhat unprecedented decision within the monarchy, for the Duchess of Sussex, it was undoubtedly the “best decision” to make.
A newfound freedom
If Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have never really explained the reasons for their departure from the royal family. Many things seem to explain it, such as the icy reception received by the Duchess among the Windsors, the relentlessness of the press against them, or the impression of not finding their place within the royal family. But for Lady Colin Campbell, this departure is mainly due to Meghan Markle’s desire to do “all kinds of things in America that she was strictly forbidden to do as a royal”.
