Earlier this year, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped away as senior royal members. With the news came a mixture of reactions. However, now rumors are circulating that they might be regretting the decision. But is it true or just a rumor?
After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their decision, other royals felt disappointed
The world was a bit shaken when Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced that they would no longer be senior royals. In an official statement, the Sussex Royals said:
We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.
Furthermore, they explained that they plan to divide their time between the UK and the USA. After the release of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s statement, the rest of the royals expressed their disappointment. In response to their news, Buckingham Palace issued their official statement which said:
“Discussions with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage. We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through.”
At the end of March, they officially bid goodbye to the royal life
Initially, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry moved to Canada. However, they have moved on from there and live in Los Angeles. While they plan to launch their own charity foundation named Archewell. This foundation will work on issues related to the environment and children. According to the couple:
“Before SussexRoyal, came the idea of Arche – the Greek word meaning source of action. We connected to this concept for the charitable organisation we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son’s name. To do something of meaning, to do something that matters. Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we each must draw upon. We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right.”
Recently, rumors came out that they might be regretting the decision of leaving the royal life behind
While Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are quarantined in LA, Prince Charles contracted coronavirus. Due to the lock down, Harry could not see his father. This is the reason why some people speculated that the couple might be regretting their decision of moving out of the UK. However, one source close to the couple has denied any such rumors. They do not regret their decision and are staying put. Despite recovering from the virus, the doctors have advised Prince Charles to stay in isolation. Therefore, no one can meet him and would have made no difference even if Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were in the UK.
